I Love You!

“ A couple in love”. (Photo credit : Dreamstime.com)

I love you,

as you are the only Man

on this earth.

I love you,

as you are the only light

my eyes have ever seen.

I love you,

as you are the only breath

that I take.

I love you,

as you are mine

and I’m yours, to death.

I love you,

as the only beauty

that lays over the world.

I love you,

as the only sun

that warms and melts

cold- icy winter days.

I love you,

as the only rain

that feeds all ‘Seven Seas’.

I love you,

as the only bird

who’s song conquers

dense and hidden Spring forests.

I love you,

as the only heartbeat

that leads me to you,

longing for love.

The lonely woman

(Ponte Vedra Beach , FL. December 2020. Photo credit: Ana Toma)

The portrait of her children, grandchildren, and herself

Hangs on the grey walls painted by her ex-husband,

Twenty-plus years ago. She breaths in and out.

It’s her time to let go of memories on this lovely spring morning,

Like she let go of all newspapers and unpublished poems,

wrapped-up and packed in taped big brown boxes,

Sitting quietly in the basement’s home workshop.

Waiting for the good Karma to give her the missing part of the moon

That the last day of March, year unknown, took it away from her.

Since that last conversation with the man that she loved,

The lonely woman thought that the Moon had two faces,

One for the man’s fulfilled wishes who left her peacefully in pain

and another one for all the empty souls who wished upon the moon.

The rainy spring days and the hot summer evenings,

The early bird songs of the April fools’ years,

The winter’s warm moments when walking on sunshine,

Like the missing September of each autumn passed,

all her memories vanished in sand and saltwater

In deep and angry oceans and sparkly blue seas…

Tonight she tells me…

( Early Spring. Backyard view, Cheshire, CT. Photo credit: Ana Toma. March 30, 2021)

Tonight she tells me that she feels like leaving.

Leaving this foreign land and travel back home.

She misses her muse, which is the love for her country,

The only place on earth that she doesn’t feel alone.

Tonight she tells me that she’s going through the wildest storm.

Like she’s out-walking through the strongest winds,

Heavy-blinding rain and frozen-white snow.

She’s holding in her chest so much pain and love.

Tonight she tells me that she can’t move in darkness.

She drops her eyes and sets a wall between trees.

There are no leaves to disturb the night’s silence.

There are no cracked branches to sing the wood’s song,

Not any good night kisses, to carry in her thoughts.

She doesn’t remember who you were to her

Maybe you were that thin crescent moon,

Sowing lies into her soul for decades…

How come you never got tired of

that double life you had,

and lived with a Botox smile with no regrets,

while sharing children and a king bed,

What were you thinking

when fathering them?

The speechless 🌕 full moon

Apparently, you can chat with the full moon.

Yes, the full moon that you and I can see,

when opening that large crystal window,

of your innocent and heavenly imagination,

to be in each other’s arms, for eternity.

***

You can chat with the full moon

through your eye-catching dreams,

As she undresses your soul with 

her mystic golden beauty.

You may catch a lovely missing face 

and a spectacular sweet smile.

You may absolutely see the same attractive man,

waiting impatiently to always love you.

***

(You may recall someone’s infinite lies,

deceitfulness and manipulations,

Their louder evilness laughs, 

thinking that they had fooled you…)

***

“But you’re the WINNER. Breath into me!”,

 -Shouts out the speechless full moon,

as you look deeply into her big-blue eyes, 

while pressing her golden cold face 

against yours…

***

It’s past mid-March. Trees are blossoming.

The speechless full moon may tell you

a thousand untold solid stories,

that you left behind as a child.

There were well-written stories 

all over the distant sky,

Using your colorless joyful tears,

when you were ecstatic, 

on top of the world…

***

You should remember beautiful Lady, 

that when you were such an ambitious 

and smart little girl,

Each hot summer night,

somewhere in Europe,

you were seating on the balcony

of your parents’ home,

wishing upon the full moon 

to visit America. Somehow,

you ended up living that dream.

***

Perhaps the full moon we both know,

may have brightened our lives further…

As we wish upon her mystic golden beauty,

to collect our sweet and passionate dreams, 

All our reminiscent and cheerful memories,

will be carefully written and read aloud in two…

On top of everything

( Photo credit: Ana Toma)

I want to know YOU, like I know the colors of the rainbow.

Like I know the lyrics and the beats of my favorite songs.

Like I sense the scent of lilies all over the world.

Like I know every stop light, turn and highway,

when driving to you.

Like I know the difference between light and dark,

color red and blue.

Like I know the dates when seasons change

and years just go by…

Like I know your lips on mine, the murmurs of your soul.

I want to know you, like I know the days of the week.

Like I know math, Italian, French language and geography.

Like I know the tree- shaded house and the places where I grew up.

Like I know the country where my childhood

dreams were isolated, forever locked.

Like I know the muddy streets when walking to school.

Like I know the summer rain drying over my

body:(the rain kept me cool).

Like I know the angry wind when my ears froze.

Like I know the winter’s frosty nights without any heat.

Like I know the thin green blankets, making colder my little feet.

Like I know the pen’s ink stains on my right

fingers, when doing homework.

Like I know by memory, the poems of Victor Hugo’s.

***

I want to know YOU, like I know how to talk.

Like I know how to smile, to feel and to Love…

Like I know the feeling of missing you much.

Like I know the feeling of happiness,

when seeing, kissing you, and touch…

The charm of Love

( Photo credit: ©️Dainis Graveris)

We wrapped the most beautiful robe of feelings around us,

As we silently listened to the hushed sound of our souls.

We whispered: “how deep is the passion of our endless kisses?”

At the same time, we were completely naked from secrets.

The man who dances in her head

“ Dancing down the years” 🎶❤️ (Photo credit: ©️Adriana Groisman. Posted on Pinterest.)

There is a man who dances in her head,

His feet keep dancing when there is music.

His smile is infectious, sweeter than honey,

She can’t relate how they met.

She knows his feet are very smart,

Can take him fast, very far away…

She puts her hands in his hairless chest,

She wants this man to stay…

There is a man who dances in her head,

In every planted dream she has.

He smells like lilies. She knows his heart.

He never stops dancing to “amour éternel”.

She follows his movements, beats and rhythm,

With such happiness, no one can show and tell.

Her feet keep dancing when there is soft music,

Dreaming of the man who dances in her head.

She’s lost…

( Photo credit: unknown ©️Pinterest )

You found her, but she’s lost

it seems that you don’t care.

Her pain is deep and she can’t cross,

That bridge from where it came.

You never had that fire-feeling,

Burning within you…

For what she knows, you don’t love her

As much as you used to…

When you were asked:- “what’s new?”

You replied: “nothing exciting”.

For what she knows, that’s really hurtful,

Not knowing what to answer…

Then other moments full of silence,

Replaced what she thought was real.

You “need” someone to make you smile,

When life’s “excitements” disappear…
