Bittersweet Heartbeat
Imaginary eyes more luminous than diamonds and light
A smile carrying a tune of laughter and delight.
Lovely as always, making me smile with fragments of your life
Bleeding recipes of romance in my heart on the night

Through lifelines made of tangled wires and breathing
Where weary hearts are wary of the carbon that's fleeting
A fray to a wonder on a tapestry weaving
An angel lies dreaming of this message receding

She's a softly spoken wake-up call reaching to me,
Pulls me from the water and beckons me to breathe.
A flutter of wings uplifting
this empty ship that's drifting
out to open seas

She's a dose of wishful thinking,
a cure to a heart that's sinking
a story that's worth listening,
an emerald that stands glistening.

But somehow still she makes it better
reading the lies she spilled in twenty six letters

I'm the bitter; she's the sweet
reason for my heart to beat
Author's Notes:

Dear Lover

We always imagine the best case scenario when we're projecting our fantasies on other people. I'm no different. That's why your eyes shone so brightly.

Our voices exchanging across the wires was my lifeline back then. The only thing I had to look forward to.
I was always tired. Night shift sucks. You took my breath away. I took your jewelry.
And there you were. Waiting for my message to come through.

I was lost all year. Spiralling downward, and you were a breath of sunshine.

At first I tried to make it work.
Toyed with the notion.
But you were afraid, and that made me angry.
Because you said you loved me.

Maybe you did.
Just not enough.

I'm gathering all your letters, all your rings and bracelets and necklaces and I'm putting them in a plastic bag. And I'm throwing them out.


Love is forever!!!

ENOUGH SAID. Beautiful write.

"Pulls me from the water and beckons me to breathe."  That's my favorite part.  Sorry, I'm not much of a critic.
