Distance can form boundaries between two people, but love knows not of these boundaries.

A Few Visitor Comments

I LOVED "Thy Love Consumes" by Peta Elizabeth Downes Best poem I've read in a long time- and really hit close to home for me!

Thy Love Consumes

Alas but thee must grace thine eyes
Upon traveled image sent to thee
And eyes not meet, nor fingertips kiss
Oceans, walls of glass, bordering such that we cannot greet
And yet, through written word I declare for naught,
For feelings unleashed bereft in my heart
Love, oh feelings do not know the sorrow of distance
Love wills as time shall weave its way through the stars
Shelter within my heart and hold thy dreams close
I wait and watch for thee, a sign, a smile, to draw me close
Shall thou trust thy soul to glow and bask me in dear light?
Such warmth shall surely fill, completion doth cries for thee
Delight known only to such passion as thy love consumes.
