How does one express
in terms measured by perception
the total longing
A gaping maw perhaps
ever starving for human kindness
silent and content when you are there
Or an endless, darkened tunnel
eerie in its utter silence
filled with light and life and joy
How about a puzzle
with one missing piece
made whole and perfect
None of these cliche images can even scratch the surface.
My shackles have fallen off and I soar above all the woes of the world
Hand in hand with the one who has freed me
Never wishing to let go
This was a feeble attempt to express just how much my sweetie pie means to me. Sometimes I wish I could invent a whole new vocabulary of words that created images, kind of like Lewis Carol, just for emotions such as these.
Emotional expression - sounds like it's taken from your heart. Nicely done!
