These were the most beautiful words I have ever heard uttered, and I am still in disbelief that they were written just for me by none other than my Beowulf...

I cannot even begin to articulate how much more I fell for you last night

You are absolutely the most fabulous thing that's ever happened to me

And I love you with every fiber of my being

I showed you my pain, and we cried, and shared, and I felt loved and comforted

You are my song, my harmony

And without you I could only live a joyless and broken life

Please come quickly to my arms, "Mobius Girl"

I love you, need you, must have you for always.




... and they were words spoken staraight from my heart. As true as the day I typed them

Here is poem I came across, and was found on the net without any author to give credit towards, for such beautiful words written...

Love of my Lost
I love the way
You burn beneath my skin
Even when you're far away
I feel you, deep within

I close my eyes and see your face
I feel my heart thunder in my chest
You're my first thought every morning
And my last thought before I find rest

Your touch shifts my universe
Your kisses make me complete
The way you hold my gaze so calmly
Sweeps me off my feet

Caught up in your warm embrace
I never want to let go
There's so many things I want to say
But I think you already know

I love you deeper than the black night sky
I savor the sound of your unsteady breath
The way you make every inch of me tremble
Beneath your sweet caress

Again, I feel my stomach turn
Your body molding with mine
In that sacred moment shared
There is only you and I

No time, no pain, no worry
No stress, no past, no grief
Up until this defining moment
I never thought I would believe

That love really is the strongest thing
If you're willing to fight
I would give my heart, my soul
Anything for you, even my own life.

Very beautiful sounds like a love that is at a far.

Okay, MG, you win. I believe this is the poem that you read of mine oh so long ago......


As the life flows from her fingertips
Fear shows in her eyes.
She trembles, her body betraying the
Courage she wants to convey.
He guides her fingers to his lips,
Kissing away the pain,
Calming her deepest thoughts.

She loses herself in the wet warmth
Of his mouth,
Still frightened, but unable to
Break the hypnotic effect.

He watches her eyes flutter closed,
Smiling at their joined pleasure.
Sated, he pulls her closer, quietly
Murmuring his reassurance in her ears.

A single tear escapes,
Trickling down her cheek,
Breaking the spell.

She realizes that this joining
Has changed them forever.

He stands, watching the tear as it drops
From her face, seeing the depth of her
Eyes for the first time.

Then he turns and walks away.

When you first shared this poem with me, I felt you had captured exactly the process and experiences I went through in trusting the men of my past, who just turned and walked away. I feared, in pretense of the word, that I would end up hurt again when I met Beowulf for the first time, afraid he'd walk away too. Your poetry is brilliantly well thought out and expressively written, Jarsis. Thanks for sharing here, as I know you are very talented in writing such beautiful poetry as you do, even if it has a dark realness attached to it's prose. More Please ;D

This is one wot I wrote earlier. Based on the border ballad/folk tale, "Tam Lin"

I am pledged against my will,
And she has claimed,
The tithe to hell,
As I am named

If for your own
You would have me
And for my own
You wish to be

Then you must hold
Hold fast and tight
Grasp me bold
With all your might

And let not go
Though I will change
Both to and fro
And appear strange

As man and beast
Upon the instant
You must hold firm
You must be constant

With your cloak
You must cover
Now the murderer
Now the lover

Now the youth
Now the crone
Now together
Now alone

Then a bird
Now a snake
Then a fox
Now a drake

Attend you not
What I may say
But hold me tight
Through all this day

And when she comes
Her pledge to claim
She'll find you here
Her pride now shame

And all of me
will be yours
And I will be saved
From her foul laws

I've written alot of poems and write regulary depending on inspiration. I've posted them on my bebo blog and on various other forums to positive feedback so I'll post a couple here:

Beneath the Crimson Sun:

Beneath a crimson sunset
Your face sailed from my view
Held in a tear soaked trance
My world just a speck on the horizon

Walking through a wallowing wilderness
A singular shadow by my side
This constant companion comfortless
Upon a bridge I can never cross

But the company fades
When the night falls and I awake
Calling out your name
Hoping the nightmare over

Though beneath a crimson sunrise
I realise my nightmare's begun
I would swap an endless life at a shadow's side
For a second's meeting of eyes


An Ear to the Wall:

Often I find myself with an ear to the wall
Sleep shattered by stone cold conflict
Cracked parental misconceptions
Fragment on the floor of estimation like Quasimodo's mirror

Donning the facade of family
Concealing constant confrontation
As a classroom clown
Deflects abrasive attention
Behind a mask of merry mockery

Flicking through photographs
I incinerate memories
Fleeting momentary delusion
Captivated by flashing light
Prolonging mere instants

Wandering a walled garden
Of throttling tentacular ivy
Picked as unripened fruits
Dissected by displaced decision
By the supposed proud gardener


Killer in a Glass:

Intimacy with an empty bottle
Is my perfect night, my idea of freedom
Meeting within glass cylinders
The kiss of poison beverage
Betrayed by it's scent

I begin descent into madness
Via over-indulgent self pity
Constant comforting confusion
All worries cast away
Only to wash up later
Stomp on the shores of my mind

A cranium invaded
By thoughts unlike my own
Enslaving all hope
Cut deep beneath bone
Spilling no blood
On tear slicked slopes
The sickly silent killer
Snatches its sedated victims
Next
