Such turmoil in my heart I bear

Fierce longing for that voice I hear

Inside my head such feverish pitch

Devout eternal that is which

A glistening of the skin I crave

In vain for heaven til the grave

To weep in thinly veiled disguise

I vow nevermore subject those eyes

To truth be told, though not by tongue

My heart shall dance forever young

My mind is shattered with illusions

Grand enthrallment, pray intrusions

Yet never to partake of passion

That swells inside my breast, this fashion

For soothing voice and trembling touch

Whose mouth and hands provide as such

My heart with sweet and bitter sorrow

Today defeat; but still tomorrow

My gaze upon such splendor falls

As many a sweet day recalls

Yet unto me my soul is wed

And wretched slumber fills my head

In throes of darkness, do I pray

For love sustain my through this day

Until those eyes again mine meet

I vow to hold my love discreet

And never taste may my love in vain

Taste passion’s kiss to quell this pain

And hold that soul in shimmering light

Devour the fruit of love’s delight

About sharonsharinginsights

Namaste'! I write poetry, stories, essays, reviews, editorials, screenplays, get the idea! I love to write. I graduated from UI&U in Vermont, U.S. with BA in Writing and Literature with a concentration in Women's Studies. I was chosen and interviewed as local artist for my writing on local online college magazine HOWL (circa 2003). My writings have been published in several genres and I have won numerous awards for my poetry. I am desirous of having my own collection of poetry and/or other writings published in my OWN book. I am passionate about women's issues, romance, love and a great number of benevolent causes. I am pretty passionate about almost anything that is NOT mundane or boring. I write from my soul (cliche' I know). Most of my work has been published and/or copyrighted (all either or both). My goal, again, is to publish a book of poetry, short stories, a novel, novellas, another song (collaborating with someone who writes music...hello, out there?)....OK more later, and thank you for checking me out!
