As always nice and slow... :-)

Inspired by the Film "Amor Inmortal"



As the tear drops...


The richness of indigo ink
disguises the tragedy of the word
meaningless with out your touch
the shyness of the pen
retreats into the mocking hour
torn petals fall softly
quietly unobserved
confetti dreams burn
anxiously in the fire
kaleidoscope memories hint
at the danger of sliding too fast
down the helter skelter future
that twists and conspires.

I agree, slowly is the only way to travel on the love train. Great work again. Must watch the film too. tear drops have no barriers where love is concerned. Nice title, Tai

oh... that movie... was so moving... you capture that scene so very well in this text... the anguish of the heart... the end of the line and unrequited love because of misunderstanding of circumstances... a painful scenario but clearly written from a poet's compassionate eye and heart's understanding... very beautiful... *hugs* xx
