How fate orchestrates is unfathomable,
I come from ancient ocean another shore,
The god-forsaken soil and the thorny-land,
and you, my friend, the long-known bright world. 

When I am feeling depressed and anxiously sullen,
all you have to do is kindly send me another whisper,
and reveal life’s tenderness in its flesh and breath.

when I am in your presence I feel life is strong,
and will defeat all its enemies and all of mine,
sick logic and puny reasoning are magically cured,
by the perfect symmetry of your courage and persistence,
gives my mind a restful night and a tomorrow to wish.

But have I not told you that I am of a feeble woman?
I once feared life and I am now afraid of pain and rainy day,
the heaven resides in your eyes and the blindness is in mine,
A wound is a self-reporting instrument,
And I sleep with her face under my tongue.
Beneath the mirage of my veil, I’ve only kept my final wish:

We always will be in this life, come what might devilish!

    1. Your kindness delivered smiles, Jeff!🥰😃 Thank you for appreciating this very ‘womanly’ poem. The conflict/connection duality is a woman’s reality. Isn’t life full of paradox like you suggested ?!😅🥳🥂

  2. Annabel, you clearly arrived in this lifetime to interpret the world through the language of poetry, and considering that you are a trained dancer, I will broaden that to include the language of artistic beauty, which includes understanding the shadows that dance around us. You have such insight and a command of language. Your poem reminds me of the value of having a connection to someone who supports us. I suppose that can include a passion or anything else that shines a light on our inner strength. Outstanding! 💖

    “And I sleep with her face under my tongue.” ~ wow!

  3. ocean s child
    timid and mild
    so it may seem
    from a far and on the surface
    dancing ballerina
    star tulle a duex at the bar
    momma boy
    listen s to the forty seven seconds
    his mummy s dead
    and it rang thru his head
    death dances
    for us
    in the sands of time
    no matter how many of them words rhyme
