I am the Lucky One

Lives interwoven as folded leaves
upon the vine love coursed through my veins
pumped to my heart
kindred spirits found in time
 promises of
…..forever more
who knew we would have these
moments this chance
…..to experience love so rare
a meeting of two strangers
unity of body and of mind
…..this mate of souls
it was luck that brought you to me
sun filled morns’ and candled nights
shades of your face smiling
…..reach out to me now
your voice
I hear you whisper
…..”I will now and forever be yours”
but as I stand
…..beside your grave
my pain cannot be doused
my tears are molten gems
that spring from the red volcano
…..known only as my heart

I welcome your critique – hopefully I written as indicated in the 3rd meaning.

    • Janna thank you, yes I thought of my parents (both living) and their relationship and how it has probably been for them and how the one who is left will be able to go on without the other.

  1. Cool use of form with the elipses, and I especially liked your description of “candled nights” instead of candle-lit or something less evocative like that. Sad turn at the end, but definitely effective !

  3. I felt that visceral twist as she stood at the grave. So beautiful. I like, as the the title indicates, that she considers herself lucky to have experienced such a love. Wonderful!
