More Salt Than Pepper

Contributed by JamesStockdale on Wednesday, 27th April 2016 @ 09:22:28 AM in AEST
Topic: LovePoetry

More salt than pepper
You smugly proclaimed
As you ran your fingers through my hair
The wind blew us so strongly
Against the sea and the sand
Our hearts had grown apart
Lost their spark
Now that we are intertwined
Together once again
All alone on the boardwalk
The darkness of night led us to explore
The feelings and emotions
Once ignored
A fiery new love that used to be
Snuffed out by grief and hardship
Maybe never meant to be
Emotions raging and combusting
Separated by distance
Our love even with persistence
So strong in memory alone
God only knows
Will it stand the test of time

This is full of wisdom and soul. A mature hand at work crafting another piece for the reader to feast on. Great job

Intriguing title that bound me to a desire to read further.
I/'/m pleased to say that it wasn/'/t just a cake with icing and nothing inside......there was real content there too.
Nice write

Loving what is familiar and fearing change keeps couples together as surely as children do!
The familiar is safe, and so then, are we.

Memory is strong and comforting, even if we adjust the memories to suit us!
Such a luxury to be able to come to the crest of a hill; look down at the daunting landscape below, and choose to go back! Given the reality of life, many of us are better off walking alone than sleeping with the enemy!
Your case is the exception, and well said!

//Great concept. New relationship = you`re taking a chance.

I`m currently in a relationship with my solitude and I cherish it a lot. But I am dating others too, my dog and my air conditioner.



While every care is taken to ensure the general sites content is family safe, our moderators cannot be in all places; all the time. Please report poetry and or comments that are in breach of our site rules HERE (Please include poem title or url). Parents also please ensure that you supervise your children well when they are on the internet; regardless of what a site says about being, or being considered, child-safe.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
