Drops of love

Dripping with terror

Impatience and anger

Longing for tenderness

Waterfall of desire

As sweet as comfort

Bliss to the soul

Limitless promise

The thirst of life

All consuming harvest

Carry my heart

Breathe into the fire

    I guess we are all longing for tenderness in one way or another. I like the progression in your poem, Alan, and how you end on beautiful and positive images.

    Admittedly I am a bit confused about the drops of love dripping with terror; but the image, in the second stanza, of such bliss heartens me. And the last stanza lifts me up! Great prompt this week.

    I love this poem and the way it starts with dark, depressing and negative words to end with such wonderful concepts. Very nice take on the prompt, Alan! And thanks for stopping by.

  12. Wonderful poem, Alan. Laconic and expansive at the same time.

    Great stuff. I can relate to the fear turning into something positive in the end. Ever optimistic, the light will find a way to enter the darkest crevices of our minds. Hopefully. Otherwise there is chocolate.
