Poles Apart

Your words, golden threaded,
braided

My ears stunned as my hearing
faded

When you said sweeter, being poles
apart

Know not I take it, a challenge,
breaking my
heart

I have to agree with sarah. takes time.but if it is a temporary parting. distance does make the heart grow fonder.

Words are not golden if breaking a heart even unintentional

Walker said...

Pain is life and sorrow is a breath.
Very good post Jac. now to go see what I have been missing

Will it ? Has it ?

If you agree with Sarah, the answer is there.

I don’t know if you will understand, but it is something like climbing the Mount Everest.
So many hardships, toils and risks and finally you are there.
When you reach there, you find out that you can’t look with your bare eyes because your eyes get spoiled by the glare...you can't use your fingers as is known that with out a glove your fingers will be bitten by frost, you can’t dress as you like and finally you realize that you can't breath even, you need an oxygen mask to do it.

Crazy ! Am I not ?

Missed you.

We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.

November Rain said...

The heart speaks not with words but of a whisper

let words fade and then the melody calls sweeter

taste the nectar of a heartbeat miles away

reading and fallng in love each of every day

jac said...

monica

You are pin-pointing me, like in a microscopic viewfinder of a Winchester?

Welcome to the window to my soul.

Yes, I know time is important and precious but I believe what Harvey Mackay said is correct.

Time has other meanings too

"Time is free, but it's priceless.

You can't own it, but you can use it.
You can't keep it, but you can send it.
Once you've lost it, you can never get it back."

What about time is lost ?

Thanks for the visit.

It is like energy...recyled enrgy, everyday to be renewed and recharged.

Grâce à Mademoiselle neers

Flattered and thrilled by your comment.

starry nights said...

Jac you are right.thanks for explaining. I did not get that part. Want to climb Mount everest so bad and when once you are there, its not what it all seemed to be like.

jac said...

The whisper of me heard as resonance afar
nectar so sweet, but then heartbeats so sweeter
ridden with a veil or hidden in a burrow
flouting all arrows, I'll sing like a sparrow

Let this be a silent but expressive tune... sweet as a tweet.

Lorna said...

Are you heartbroken or is that poetic license?

jac said...

I am smiling at your question, because I can't answer it.

"Poetry is not an opinion expressed. It is a song that rises from a bleeding wound or a smiling mouth."
-Khalil Gibran-

And I am still smiling. :)
