L'Amore Senza Fine

A wise friend once told me that "love does not die...



...people do..."
_________________________




I closed my eyes ...




to breathe you...


and echoed these words in my psyche,

"Love doesn't die...
MAI (Never)!"



And your memories slipped tout de suite on my mind...
----------------------------------------------------------


Yours was the most angelic face I have ever seen...



Mother and father must've been very jealous that it was YOU 
I saw 
and 
touched
before them....







Oh, you reached out and held my hand tenderly ...for what seemed like wild blue yonder...


It is you ...


whom I'll love for the rest of my life...


yes...
but...


time was insouciant...

---------------------------------------------


You waited for me to grow...

space dispersed...
our times converged... 



...our hearts finally one...


Oh, how I loved you...


like the first time I saw you...
but...


--------------------------------------------------------------------------


You...
I...
We cannot be in this lifetime...




"I'll wait for you...there..."


-------------------------------------------------



I opened my eyes...


and found my way back to reality...





"Love does not die...


it is just metamorphosed
and refined...

Like gold tested in fire (a rephrase of 1 Peter 1,7)


and a thought hit me...



"Love does not die... (Never!)
people do...


So when all that's left of me is love (until then...purified and consumed)



Give me away."

  2. Yes.....Love never dies a natural death.... It dies because we don't know how to replenish its source.... It dies of blindness,errors and betrayals.....

    the pics here are so appropriate to the words, hence giving additional flavor to the post....

    I feel like you may have lived many lives before this one and learned many things and you bring them forth on the wings of love and the body of passion

  9. "Love withers under constraints: its very essence is liberty: it is compatible neither with obedience, jealousy, nor fear: it is there most pure, perfect, and unlimited where its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve".

    ITS GROWS BOLD AS IT GETS OLD.

  10. True love never dies.. I am a hopeless romantic and believe this with all of my heart. I really like how you incorporate the visuals with your poetry. They had depth and strength to your words. I needed a reminder, thank you for this.

  11. You made me cry with this one Melissa...To be honest with you, I don't have the words to make you feel better, but I do have the arms to give you a hug, ears to listen to whatever you want to talk about, and I have a heart; a heart that's aching to see you smile again.

  12. Melissa, What is love? A feeling of pure joy and fulfillment. You look at him and your heart skips a beat, your pulse starts racing and your soul is at peace. How can all this die? It lives on even after we go away. Believe in love and it will be yours to keep forever n ever...god bless
