SHADOWS OF LOVE

A Poetic Duet written by A Shade of Pen and Think. Speak. Tryst
SHADOWS OF LOVE
images5
Regardless of all my efforts
You creep into my mind
I tried so hard to let you go
And all you did
Was come back even closer
I tell you that I need you
I’ve told you many times
Underneath the bridge
In the shadows of
Where our last words, we spoke
You are like a drug
That seeps inside my mind
The heroin that makes me crave
I know you can hurt me deep
and yet I need you badly
Inside, connected and deep
Your resolating wisdoms
I cherish them to keep
I have always been trapped
Underneath you, deepNothing can separate

The love that joins two different souls
In a single string, we might have more
Than a heart to beat
Yet synchronized
In harmony, they forever sing..
Forever we will find
Memories of us
Coming back to haunt
The precious corners of our minds
As we have always been trapped
Underneath our shadows

Palindromes

A Poetic Duet Written by Pieces & Think. Speak. Tryst

This is the brilliance of Neeraj, mixed with the feminine sensitivity of me, (Jen) … An emotional expression of words through the hearts & minds of a man and a woman .. Here, Neeraj explains this beautifully:

Palindromes are the words and sequences that are same while reading from backward or forward such as “madam”. Here, our palindrome will be for emotional sequence, connecting everything forming a never-ending circle of same sentiments, happening again and again. Like in this poem, every paragraph begins with same emotion the last paragraph was ended with. What you think? I would say let’s take the chance and redefine the word ‘Palindrome’ in a wider, emotional sense.
And, of course, I loved it and here it is!! Our written affair from us, to you ~ I hope you enjoy! XO
Palindromes

Smoke filled the empty room
Leaving me empty
All too soon
Here I am
Surrounded in my distractions
Cloaked in what I thought I knew
Laughing at my false interactions
And you are gone
So far from view
Gone like you were never here
Not in this world, where
I’m forced to keep myself alive
Sitting here, seeing my today
And yesterday fighting with hands
With each other
Just like we used to play
Not so long ago
Yet, long ago is where we were,
We were incredible upon the world
Two hearts, joined in one
Pieces that fell, and
Came together again…
Laughing as we, Loved endlessly
But that was then
It’s changed somehow
Somehow,
Something changed,
Altered the face of my today.
And I want to chase you back,
Want to go back
And live my yesterday…
When teasing was amusing
Not so long ago
Again the room is filling with smoke…
Leaving me empty
All too soon.

Ridding the Waters of Love

This week I had the lovely pleasure of writing a duet with a great friend! Shruti of A Shade of Pen & I have been writing for quite some time now … however, caught in the waves of life, it has been a while since we have joined thoughts and emotions and created poetry.
This is a Poetic Duet
Written by A Shade of Pen & Think. Speak. Tryst.
waimea-bay-shore-break-oahu-hi
“Riding the Waters of Love”
I am helpless when I see your smile
I melt into a puddle of love
As I stare at the roads ahead
I always see my steps synced with you
 
Here I stand, a forcible strength of will
Letting it all go and without hesitation
To tell you the words that ring through my soul
It is you whom I need, to have and to hold

Regardless of the storms that life will throw
I will hold your hand and bear it all
After all, it is sorrow that brightens “joy”
Just like it is you, who breathes “breath” into my life
 
We walk along the cobble stone paths
Air brushing our cheeks like summer warmth
These moments in time, with you by my side
Wash away all the rain inside of my mind …

Together we march like we have no care
Love, affection and happiness is in the air
I smile at seeing your beautiful eyes
Because in it, I see the reflection of my smile
 
Our mirror reflection in the water below
With you by my side, we will continue to grow
Only until we see the setting sun
Our time is now, things have only just begun..
 
I will sail with you to the end of times
And make you smile with silly rhymes
There is nothing that will hold me back
Together, we will grow old, hand in hand

A Poetic Duet

 In This Moment

 1227c0dc8d22d6d0087ee828e02de7ca

Wind brought movement
To your hair in the night air
Hold on tightly to me
Shaken is the bridge we stand upon
In this moment, you are all that I see
 
My field of vision blurry
Melancholy tears flood my eyes
I desperately clench your body
Fear chills my very soul
In this moment, you are all that I desire
 
Last night’s words echo
Penetrating deep in my heart
Leaving me in the valley of despair
Holding on to our velvet embrace
In this moment, you are all that I need
 
We stand upon the precipice
Of this life-changing event
Will you continue to stand by me
Or in your darkness, will you relent?
In this moment, you are all that consumes me
 
Hush while I sing to you
The sweet melodies of my soul
Escalating my desire to please you
Watching light explode in your eyes
In this moment, you are the magic that binds us
 
A hollow tune rings out instead
Foreshadowing events to come
I see our paths diverge
Leaving only shattered pieces to remain
In this moment, you are all that is missing
 
Standing in the frost-bitten morning
Realizing yesterday is long gone
Holding on to the tangible memories
I reach for you to come along
 
Broken pieces in our rear view
But it doesn’t even matter
Tomorrow is the place to heal our souls
Forgetting what was shattered
 
Through the energy that binds us now
Standing by you, you are next to me
In this moment, you are all that I see

Beautiful Mistake

A Passionate-Romantic Duet

Written by Neeraj of Pieces ~ Exposing Emotion & Think Speak Tryst

e7c211ccf1ab8b0e29c19589a77a6cbe 

Beautiful Mistake

 Riding onto you,

 

I knew I was making mistake,

 

When in my mouth I had your taste,

 

Crushing my dignity,

 

For all the pleasure to take,

 

I didn’t want anything to waste,

 

So I opened my mouth,

 

To grab a piece of you,

 

It wasn’t going to be easy,

 

Ah, I wish I knew,

 

 

 

Heat and fire,

 

From your dark, intense eyes

 

Penetrate my heart,

 

Beating faster and faster, in this moment

 

I go to speak, but can’t

 

I should not take you back,

 

But here you are, and I’m your toy,

 

Teasing me, you are so coy,

 

As I melt into you,

 

 

 

Umm… It’s delicious feeling you all over me,

 

Don’t stop that finger that you run over me,

 

I’m your slave, feel me,

 

Explore my curves,

 

Explore the heights,

 

Get into the center and rewrite,

 

My destiny,

 

 

 

Skin on skin

 

Heat moving between us

 

Silent we are with words

 

As our language of the body

 

Says it all

 

This moment is timeless

 

You are breathtaking

 

Tracing your lips

 

I must feel your embrace

 

I will never forget this time and place

 

 

 

Let me feel this feeling so rapture,

 

Let me taste everything,

 

Let me (every moment) capture,

 

What I’m doing I have no clue,

 

As you’re moving deeper inside me,

 

And I, inside you,

 

And I wish I knew,

 

After you there would be no place,
 
But lets not stop making beautiful mistakes.

Dream Kisses

 

A Poetic Duet by A Shade of Pen & Think Speak Tryst

 

 5fe65e005d67b7cfc0c0eb1e731becf5

 

Dream Kisses

 Dark green leaves
Falling from the trees
Kissing the lake
I see you in my dreams

 
 
You stand so close
I can feel you breathe
All the memories we had
Wrap around me and push me down
To the land we own
 
 
You press your warmth
Into the palm of my hand
As we talk for hours
Love does not reprimand
 
 
Into the afternoon sun, we have only us
We lie down in each other’s arm
Forgetting all the worries of the world
The entire universe ceases to exist
As my heart drums the beats for you
 
 
Like kisses in the water
I enjoy these endless moments
Frozen in time, you by my side
Deep beauty is rooted in your eyes
 
 
Nothing can take away the smile
No truth is larger than the love we share 
I hug you close, I hug you hard
Because I do not want to let you go
 
 
So jump into the river with me
Let’s swim until our arms tire
Brilliant sky of blue above
Naked in the water with my love
 
 
The Sun silently rises in the sky
And with a pop my eyes open wide
A wonderful dream ends yet again
I still smile at those memories
Because one day it will all be a reality
 
 
Like the leaves that fall
Kissing the land they fall upon
In my dreams I see you there
In a place of mine, you will never be gone

Shadows of Fire ~ Tryst Fiction

~Tryst Fiction~

 shadow

Shadows of Fire

 

There was a time when our fire burnned deep between us.

It was like we would never grow old and tired.

The passion and energy would build higher and higher with each moment we spent together.

Then life happened and your fire was slightly dimmer each year.

Yet, you can still see my passion, if you watch the shadows of my spirit that follow me, as you continue to walk the other way.

Yesterday’s Gone

A Poetic Duet written by Hastywords & Tryst

 aaa

YESTERDAY’S GONE

 

After the tide

Pulls away from the beach

I am yearning for you

You are out of reach

 

I spent my life reaching

But each time I falter

Something happens

And you are even farther

 

After many words exchanged

You are slipping away

Looking to the sky

What more can I say

 

I have no more words

No more ways to say

I miss you so much more

Than mere words portray

 

As the tide rolls back in

I search it’s substance

But you were washed away

Forever lost in a churning sea

 

The only comfort I find

Comes from the rising sun

I know the day will come

And I will meet you were it sets

 

We are both free

Unlocked by our chains

Is there ‘us’ for tomorrow

I cherish what remains

 

Forgiveness is virtuous

Our language was broken

I’ll see you at sunset

Exchange things unspoken

 

After the tide

Lessons we have learned

Yesterday is gone

Resentments have burned

The Wrong Pleasure

imagesCA1PM2DO
 
The Wrong Pleasure
 
Drapped in the dark
I hide from you
Mimicking my sorrow
Do my feelings
Penetrate you
Inside I am burning
I have so much I need to say
But I am exhausted from the task
Of pleasing you each day
 
Don’t you see
That my smile is fake
It hasn’t been sincere
For many moons we’ve seen
There is a reason
I keep on going
My heart loves
It keeps on showing
But my emotion is wrong
Don’t watch my loathing
 
Forgive me while I ponder
Something doesn’t quite measure
I’m being poisoned by
The wrong kind of pleasure
I have taken it in
Absorbed it into my heart
Fighting this catalyst
As my world falls apart
 
I sense your wicked charm
You really never fooled me
Feeding me a lifetime of harm
Did you think I couldn’t see
Trying to trick me
By your false devotion
Tasting on my lips
Your lethal potion
 
In a moment
I will waste no more time
I will break this curse
And take what is mine
I never fit the part
Of the cruelish girl indeed
I won’t fake my smile again
Find a new soul to bleed
 
~J. Lefever~

This is dark.. but real… read between the lines.. I am delivering a very powerful message here…

Broken Bridges

faf

Broken Bridges

 

What we were

Can’t shake the feeling

What we’ve done

Our bridge is now broken

Silence now between us

Whispers words unspoken

It’s not us

Broken trust

Tainted lust

We stand

In the dust

Left far behind

Said too much

Bleeding

Can’t rewind

Bridge has fallen

Shaking as we

Walk across

Daring to find

Some Peace of mind

As we are

Left far behind

The ‘Us’ we once were

Trust we once shared

Too much to take

Does either of us even care?

 

~J. Lefever~
