I wish…

i wish you love

that it exudes from every pore

stings with silken sweat

leaves you dripping evermore

from passion’s sweet pipette

..

i wish you love

i hope it gives you leaden feet

that shuffle to a heart’s skipped beat

weighing limbs with daisy chains

hinged handcuffs, steel etched stains

..

i wish you love

i hope it constricts your sapient breath

soft rigor mortis, stifled little death

agonies of old, bereft

..

i wish you love

let the permafrost now crack

reveal the fertile soil; buds of lilac

and welcome mine…

  1. Diana, I don’t think any poet has found it in them to express this celebrated emotion of love in as myriad ways as you have! You employ each deft art to create nothing short of breathtaking verses! I can hear your poetry, it speaks to me; and the sounds of the words blessed and saved from obscurity by your touch, resound soothing into the reader’s ear..
    What a wonderful poem to start my day… β€πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ŒπŸ“πŸ™πŸ˜˜

    1. And Isha, what a glorious comment to fill me with a version of happy that is usually rare on a Sunday evening!
      Sunday…the mellow night that is the eve of the hyper work week. Yes, I have no right to be uplifted by your comments …. so I am grateful each and every time 😌🌹
      Your words add a lustre to my writing that was not present before you read …. πŸ’•πŸ˜Œ

      1. You’re a poet at all times! πŸ’›πŸ’Ÿβ€ Wave your magic wand over this Sunday Eve and I’m sure you’ll not only be uplifted but levitating with happiness too πŸ’­πŸ˜ŠπŸ“ And if you still need some help, just visit your blog and read a poem called “I wish” 😏

      2. Haha nice! I shall take your advice and inspiring words and wrap them up in a warm blanket in case the night temperature here plummets.
        And if all else fails….
        Chocolate! πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‚
        Sending you a square or three and waving from afar! πŸ˜ŒπŸ’•πŸŒΈπŸŒΈ

  2. wow I was literally working on a poem with a similar theme. I like your version better. Where you use sort of a verbal irony where you wish love but you wish the suffering of what comes along with love because…at least you’ll have love. hahah. did I interpret it right? keep on posting! Glad you’re here Diana. πŸ™‚

      There is definitely a slight bitter taste in the mouth in this piece … like the healthiest chocolate πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ŠπŸŒΉ

    1. Greetings kind Anand! Once more, your words are wholeheartedly welcomed 😊
      Yes, the photograph was taken a couple of km from my home. A picturesque bay I can never stop admiring (anytime of the day) in Vancouver, Canada.
      A lovely day to you kind Sir ❀️

    1. Well thank you sweet lady! The rhythm took a little work; maybe you sense some of my creative aggravation as I ask the question…β€œI wish you love”
      It could certainly be a phrase said through gritted teeth. πŸ˜‰

      1. Oh dear, I’ve realized I may be coming across as a bit of a black widow… promise I’m harmless – but bring your ring just in case πŸ˜‰πŸŒΉ

      2. Yes, I guess this means if a glass is half full the pessimist has mojito ingredients tucked away! But the optimist thinks the half glass will be replenished somehow haha.

    1. But of course I do … for after the fine tuning was done and I recited one last time…I was filled with nothing but the purest intention… 😌🌹
      Have a lovely day sweet friend πŸ’œπŸŒΈπŸŒΈ

Wow! You are incredibly talented! Thank you so much for sharing this talent with us! Bless you!! 🌷🌸🌼

  6. You are a conductor…If I never thought to have a wish, I been put in chains and dragged to the court of love intricacies. brought to your lovely musings and unchained…walked out whistling, Now I wish that wish is returned to the wisher. Lady Di, this is lovely

  7. D…can I claim this poem as my heart’s dialogue?
    You are the poet I think I have been searching for without knowing I was…
    Sometimes I felt like I was alone in my poetry, if that makes sense. But I think you and I may be within the same plane of poetic existence…πŸ–€

    1. Yes, you may … you may!
      I smile when I see you have made a comment; with you, an odd reaction…I actually stop sleeping and turn the light on to reply. I’m roused to speak to you as if I’ve been summoned.
      Yes, we are on the same plane.
      My sweet sister o’ word, we are finally heard…

      1. In my reckoning, there is nothing silently smouldering about your words – it’s as if you open all the windows and doors and a strong gale begins to fan an inferno in my home. I have noted your details (so lovely of you!) and will enter with layered, fire retardant clothes. πŸ™‚
