Day 13 A-Z Challenge, M = Magnolia (Quatern)

~::~ Magnolia Dream ~::~

???????????????????????????????????????????

Magnolia! You make me yearn

You blossom wild, in grief I burn

Set ablaze for eternity

My immortal love, come to me

 

In every life, affection spurned

Magnolia! You make me yearn

He came, he left without a trace

Oh, how I crave to see his face!

 

Scorned love, in every existence

Passion decried of its essence

Magnolia! You make me yearn

Time after time in every turn

 

Waiting ‘neath the magnolia tree

For love to set my soul a’free 

I burn with the orange Saturn

Magnolia! You make me yearn!

In darkness I lay with my cellphone beeping!

Waiting for sleep to engulf me

And lead me down the dreamy passages

To a land where trees sing n birds danced

While I lay ‘Neath a purple foliage

With moonbeams glistening over midnight lily

And fireflies enlightening paths..

A silent zephyr playing with my curls

A love song adorning my pink lips..

I sit there by the azure lake

Awaiting his arrival with dusking sun

As the moon adorns the southern sky

The evening breeze brings his musky aroma

I hear him trudging along the valley

With faint footsteps

And with every step my heart skips a beat

As he nears, my cheeks inflame

With a tinge of ruby red

In the blink of an eye am in his arms

The place where I belong

His slender fingers contour my face

As my faint heart begins to race

A random rhythm a mighty thud

As furor begins to rise

A passionate Kiss upon rosy lips

Parched as if forever

A yearning dissolved

As fingers entwined,

We lay there, ‘Neath d starlit sky

Watching faint mars

Lost in desire, appeasing a fire

While the fireflies danced among stars

Waiting_At_The_Altar_Of_Love_by_Onceuponatime13

I looked for you in crowded faces

I looked high and low in myriad places

Wondering where I could find you

And wash away my earthly blues

 

I sit here waiting for the One to love

Awaiting an interlude by heavens above

Anticipating the advent of a soul mate

At the touch of whom my heart’s at pace

 

Oh love! I search, I search for thee

A love that makes me more me

The love that inspired me to rhyme

A love that would last for a lifetime

 

A verse in rhyme I write for you

A verse I dream in love-laced hues

A verse so real, of love surreal

A verse, with my feelings concealed

 

I pine for you and words just flow

I sit writing poems, my face aglow

I write a poem, love poems for thee

Where art thou, come set my heart free!

Written for Dverse Poet Prompt  – to write on what prompted/inspired you to take to poetry.

For me it was Love and the search for the one true love! 🙂 The dreams of which and lack of which inspired me to write many a blissful/mushy/sad poems of love. I hope I have justified the prompt as well as my inspiration – Love!!

There’s so much I want to say

There’s so much to convey

But words just elude me

I can’t seem to break free

Chains of reality weighing me down

Distances between us make me frown

Every passing second seem an eternity long

My aching heart hums a silent love song

For all the miles that lay between

A zillion could have, would have, should have been

Without you around, I feel incomplete

Even my rhythmic heart skips a beat

With every moment I yearn for you

Your absence makes me feel all blue

A stabbing pain, a silent tear

Your velvet voice I pine to hear

Slender fingers, contoured face

That losing myself in your embrace

Your silken lips laced in a naughty dimpled smile

Melts my soul into a gooey pile

My darling I stand here by the altar

Awaiting your arrival, my Knight in shining armor!

When the best place to be is in someone’s arms

When you’re lost away from all worldly charms

When an intense look gives tummy a somersault

When all emotions seem to be locked up in a vault

Is it love??

 

When a single touch sends across shock waves

When togetherness is all your heart craves

When everything loses colour in their absence

When even the sanest things, lose out on sense

Is it love??         

 

When the eyes are giddy and mind is numb

Even to minor pleasures your will succumbs

When Music becomes the best friend & lyrics all true

When mind is reeling with feelings blue

Is it love?

 

When nature’s beauty seem like mediocre scenes

When only a feeling of emptiness reigns

When interaction with others seem middling affair

When yearning in memories is all you care

Is it love?
