and if you should fall suddenly

into the vast cerulean blue

remember first to grab my hand

and i shall follow you


for the sky is vast this day

and impeccably alluring

my dearest one, let’s swim again

a firmament float enduring


and as the air grows thin

lips shall meet

and breathe me in

from giddy thought

to last embrace

consciousness slipping

you’ll see my face

  1. Another difficult subject but which holds no fear to the poet. a lover’s pact, eternal souls, unto death and beyond. Beautiful piece Diana, you once likened the life of a poet as a journey, you seem to have found out that the difficult paths are often more scenic and rewarding to travel on.

  2. There was a story called The Silver Lining which I had studied in school. A line always stayed with me, written in description of a voice… ‘Like water bubbling from a silver jar’. That’s how your poetry is to me Lady D ❤💙😘
