A Love like this


(Poetic Conversation between C and E.D)

Distant lover-
Beyond the seas
Beyond my reach
Yet forever close
For you reside in my heart

As the sun goes down tonight
And the moon slowly rises in the sky
Listen intently to its silent whispers
As it brings tidings from my heart to yours

As you lay in your bed, my love
Don’t cry for me
Just know dear love
That I am forever close
For I reside in your heart

When morning comes
And the sun slowly rises in the sky
Bask in its rays
Close your eyes as they kiss your lips
For they carry the warmth of love
From my heart to yours

Distant lover
Beyond the seas
Beyond my reach
Yet forever close
As you reside in my heart


Yours in love,
C

Dearest C

A love like this
To shame the jealousy of distance
Beyond your reach
Yet forever close
I am the patient
Admitted within the vestibules of your loving heart

The sun goes down
For the moon to spark the light
I see you in the silent whispers of the moon’s lustre
My heart beating
To the comely embrace of your loving arms
A love like this to punctuate the story of my heart

A sweet love to colour my life
The taste of your words
Playing jingles beneath my pillow
Shards of a broken heart
Mending from the glow of your love
Cold nights cursed eternally,
The bliss of your kiss
Spelling this love beyond a tease

Beyond the seas
Beyond the arm’s reach
I take this love
For what your heart have brought to me
I am the patient
Admitted between the vestibules of your loving heart
Its kisses and hugs to you sweetheart
When a love like this calls unto me

Yours in love
E.D
