    dotsYour Facedots

    It was a memory,
    hidden in cloud, yet
    when I painted
    your form
         amongst delicate
         cotton whisps with
         my fingers

    it came to me.

    Perhaps it had
    all ready been there,
    the softness of your skin
         from this mystic fog,
         the body of your nose
         delicate beneath

    my trembling fingers.

    Your lips warm
    the color of a smile
         from my heart

         despite this cold
         fragile shroud.

    I paint more
    releasing the shape
         of your cheeks

         and neck,
         the spill of your hair,

    your creaseless brow
    and your dark lashes
         jutting out from your eyes

         like barbwire,
         which will not open.

    You still seem
    as if you breathe.
    As if I could taste
    your essence
         if my lips trembled
         near yours.
         If I didnít touch

    they would touch mine.

    As if in closing my eyes
    you would open your own.
    As if we could be together
         one in darkness
         the other in light
         our souls

    only meeting at each turning point.

    It is there
    in my dreams.
         Each night

         day, hour, I paint
         the whisps cling

    like webs
    to your flesh
         Each time

         a part of you

    into steel fibers
    of cloud.
         Until only this remains.

         Soon it will be gone
         in memory.

    I run my arms through
    your hair, tangling my wrists,
    twisting and tightening until
    my blood coats each strand.
         I press my forehead
         to your own.

    my own cursed cloud to cling to me.

    Suffocate me
    in strengthening fibers,
    impale me with its cold
    meld my flesh to yours.
         in my own mind
         I cannot die.

    Please open your eyes.

    this is a very beautiful poem. I must say it is very sad but well written. I like the story you are telling. Memories are very important but we cant live our life in a memory. If I am not wrong this is what this poem was all about.

    It is like a very nice painting. Very well done

    With love

      wow, i really liked this. i'm not sure that my interpretation was the same that you had in mind, but I really liked the imagery you used, I could almost see the story you were creating, I really liked this stanza:

    As if in closing my eyes
    you would open your own.
    As if we could be together
    one in darkness
    the other in light
    our souls

    I thought it had a really interesting feel to it.
    But yeah, I really liked this piece, I don't usually read the longer ones, but this kept me interested the whole way through.
    Hope to see more from you
    Regards, Kalinda
