Have I Told You Lately? PowerHouseCreatives Contest

in #photography11 months ago (edited)

I can barely see the moment now, just a memory of recollection. How did I miss all the signs, did it move that swiftly, but follow all the rules? There was no real sense to it, I tried to push it back, but, in my naivety, I left it unattended. Searing a place, so deep inside, arousing all my senses, pushing sense aside. Have I told you today how you set my heart afire? Do you know of this feeling, deep inside my soul? Where the warmth of your words pass on a sweet afterglow? I bask in your words, they carry me for miles, some days, I look back on them, driving me even further.

And then.

Oh, foolish talk, yes? Like a teenager in lust. It’s not prosing, my dear, but how my brain seems to work. In overtime. Again. It would not seem quite right, to use such a common phrase. When the heart is all soft, gently confiding. Like ordering a seltzer, when champagne is desired. You understand. It has never felt common, but, very much surreal, a constant bond of feeling loved, a sealing of my fate.

I awaken wholly sated, in a blanket of love, covering me over, head to toe, warming that place, the one that beats content. Yes. Last thought, first thought. It was but a dream, or was it? I could feel your touch within your words, you can't just make that up. You have no idea. You left me wanting to finish the dream, me here with my soul on fire. Have I told you how your words caress me in whole? How the very thought of you brings a lightness to my head?

I can feel your hand over mine at night. As we sit and whisper in our world of delight. Yes. Pure heaven I say. I’m not sure how I can be any clearer, you’ve stolen something very intimate, yet, I gave it to you freely. Know that you are loved because therein lies the truth. It keeps my heart a kindle, its warmth consumed by that unhidden desire.

Love, Denise

I always post this poem down at the bottom of my posts. It is one that has become so near and dear to my heart. I only post the most famous part of it, but, wanted to post it in its entirety today.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

I am not sure what all this contest is about but if it is for hottest prose, oh yeah you got my vote!

Oh yeah first though, last thought, you know that is scary deep, but at least you can jump in and not get hurt like shallow water.

When you find someone that captures both your heart and your mind, you know that is something so special. Great words Denise. You sure know how to burn up the page.

Thank you so much for the kind and generous comment for this post. I won't call it poetry or even using but more of a ramble or a conversation that I'm having in my own head. I think that would be it. I appreciate you taking the time to come over and say hello and leave your words behind.

Oh my God, do you memorize all the words to my poetry?

Thanks again!!

Now we also have a poem in prose and a participation in a contest! News for your followers, like me. Because I try to oppose poetry in foreign languages, I still have to admire the beautiful photography! @tipu curate

Oh, that is true!!! I always think of you when I do prose, however, this is more like a conversation in her head. One she is having with herself.

So, is that still prose? I am guessing it can be. Well, I want to thank you for taking the time to look at it and for the vote! It is very much appreciated!

I hope you are having a wonderful day! It is truly amazing weather today! Have a wonderful evening!

I think it is a poetic prose or ... a poetry in prose! Anyway, something I can't get close to. You can do this in a natural way ...

Guess someone else had the same idea!

Hehe! Yes, but, I am truly flattered @sumatranate!

What a beautiful poem! I only wish I had your way with words! And lucky recipient of this poem and your love!

Thank you so much for such a sweet comment! I am actually pretty fortunate because so many times people won't touch poetry and comment on it. However this is probably going to sound weird to you but it's more like having a conversation in your head rather than poetry. But I am thrilled that you like it and I want to thank you so much for leaving your words.

Have a most wonderful night!

!tip .20

Yes, I'm usually one of the ones that kind of skip over the poetry, but I really enjoyed yours, perhaps because it was more like a conversation or a beautiful expression of your thoughts and feelings!
I say this then when I do stop and read some beautiful poetry I'm very appreciative of them!

This gave me a very warm feeling - I don’t know what the contest is but no doubt the judges will feel much as I did - haha nice one Denise 🤗❤️

Even while reading your work with the help of an automatic translator (oh, how rude these translators work), I saw the depths of your brain full of love :-)
I like it!

Excellent entry! Good luck in the contest, but sounds like you’re already a winner!

I like your poetic prose with photography and i have done #MarketFriday post today. Good luck in the contest of your nice entry.

Bendecido dia para usted,esa hermosa flor transmite paz,amor,espiritualidad,ella sola demuestra la calidad de su contenido,a pesar de pocas fotos que me sorprendio,lo importante no es la cantidad sino la calidad,que buen trabajo,saludos y aqui voy amiga viendo como sobrevivir el dia a dia,es duro!

That was really something!!! Thank you for such beautiful poem!

I've also shared your post in the Steem Malaysia Community Page on Facebook, hoping to give you the extra exposure because of its good content. Feel free to join this community page is you wish!

I hope by doing this, more content creators/bloggers/vloggers will get to know this wonderful platform we both thrive in. :)

Keep creating awesome content!

@dswigle - awww, such passion - it's wonderful to find such passion today and someone to take the time to write about it, opening yourself up on the printed page and sharing that passion. Just beautiful:

I awaken wholly sated, in a blanket of love, covering me over, head to toe, warming that place, the one that beats content.

Of course. No one talks love like Denise does. Exceptional. xo

I didn't want to read any of the entries until I'd finished mine. This is really a beautiful piece of writing. I can see why you came in 1st place - it is much deserved! :)

Thank you so much! That is such a kind thing to say! I didn't read them all yet, I am struggling to keep up with comments. It has been a little tough with the internet down and will take me a bit to catch up (although I am leaving for a month on Friday!)

I will finish up the entries tonight or tomorrow morning. I felt the same as you and didn't want to be swayed in any way. I wasn't sure what to write, but, a conversation in my head was where it went. :)

I appreciate your feedback. Truly. Everything you write is so complete, so well done and so utterly flawless. It is hard to even comment back to that. :) And you know I am serious.

Have a great night!

every words I've read is so sweet, it's look like a poetry to me. A poetry that is clearer than the sky. I could feel the love that once you've had before. The moment that was missing, feel's like it returns by your words. Very deep and lovely message.

You're not a teen ager like before but the way you speak of words it's like you are. Great blig denise, it's worth to read.

My internet is still broken and much of it wouldn't post from the phone so I wasn't doing it last night in the middle of the night like normal but now I'll go out and find some free Wi-Fi. Oh my God. I'll get it up in a jiffy
