Our journey

Our Journey


Someone said “love happens”.
 Love happened to me…..
You tiptoed into my loveless life
 Knocking on the door to my soul,
 My lost, ignorant soul…
Beckoning you into the deep recesses
 Of my numb, dead heart
Something in you awakened me…
A stirring, a familiar tug of my heart.

Days became an anticipation,..
Waking up with a song in my heart
The deluge of passion and intensity
Swept away agonies of a yesterday.
Drinking in every word, every sigh
Intoxicated and heady
Life took on a magical hue.
The smile that was lost
In the darkness of my heart
Spread its wing to soar once more.

Seeking the one, my soulmate
In every face that crossed my lonely path
I have stumbled and faltered.
Many a journey was embarked
Only to abandon…
And yet we met when all was lost
You belonged to another…
We sought to walk the mile
Strewn with tears and laughter
Our heart as one…
Tasting the salty tears of futility
I walk with you my love
With no destination in sight.

  8. I could relate in many ways to this poem Rimly soul sis. Then again, I ask God, why do we meet people who jibe so much with our emotions and yet are already taken? Oh let me never lose sight of my destination...

    I truly love your poem. Thanks for reposting this one ;)

  12. From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together, and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. Because love is the beauty of the soul.
    Beautifully written Rimly..

  23. Sometimes people come into our lives to remind us to Live and Love again..they bring us back to "Life"...when our heart and soul cries out..the universe answers..it does not know the ways of society...it does not discern...it sends us who we need...to lead us back to life. The heart will respond to the Soul it resonates with..at this time..the right person came along with the Key to open your wounded heart...you have the bittersweet moment of laughter and tears..but there is also the recognition of Love Ignited...you do not need a "destination in sight" you are living your destination...Always...xx

  28. Your poetry is so honest and raw. This one really hit home, basically describing feelings that I've felt, almost to a "T". Keep this flow Rimly, you sparkle when you write.

  29. Leeann I agree with you. People come into our lives for a reason, even if it is someone with whom you have no destination.It is the journey itself which teaches us a lot about ourselves and reawakens in us emotions lying dormant. Thank you so much for always commenting on my poems with such understanding.

  37. Hello.
    Whether the destination is known or unknown, the best part of the journey is walking hand in hand with the one you love.
