Silent Seduction – Original Poem

By Mark A. Leon

Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever yearned so deep?
Felt the pain that haunts you in your sleep
Brought you to tears of happiness
Cried and wept
Vulnerable as steel

Have you ever felt your soul open up wide?
Let a symbolic heart touch you inside

Is there another you dream about as you lay upon a pillow of comfort?
Reminded with every blow of the wind sending shivers down your spine
Drenched in the sweat of a lost yearning

Romantic projections poisoned by the lessons we are taught
Without question, we accept
We accept tainted lies from those cut by the thorns
Bleeding; coating the pores; dripping to the concrete
Passing it down for future mistakes

Break the chains
We are stars
Energy powered by light
Pure and intense
Infinite on a journey without direction
Spreading through the universe like stardust
Sparkles in the sky

Transient
White noise
Voices of the past haunting; comforting
Seeking answers to a future not yet defined by the lines of a journey written by future memories

Close my eyes
Drift away
Curtains lift
Childhood revealed

The laughter, the crush, the first girl, the last love
All played with passion and innocence
I love this cinematic canvas
Rich in color
A rainbow of happiness

Don’t wake me
Don’t wake me yet

A seduction of the mind
Have you ever been in love?

Yes, and I continue to wait….
