THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION http://shackledandcrowned.wordpress.com/2013/04/12/friendship/
We were like a thousand miles of highway
With never ending transitions
I know we’ve been in la-la land
Somewhere far away on our journey to love
Random tokens of affection straddle my shoulder
And trickle down my spine
And I know he sees my silhouette dancing slowly for the moon
And yesterday he made love to me from across the room
And it was beautiful
Like all the times before
And it was nothing fancy but so much more
We were like a thousand miles of highway
Riding somewhere pass the end of the earth
We were falling in love
We played footsies from across the room
And he smelled me
Because I was his perfume
And no amount of turmoil could penetrate our portal
We were only mere mortals
But we were in love
When he touched me I felt his protection
This was not about sex
But so much more
We were exempt from
He was my white
And I was his black
And there were no “Grey Areas”
We were in a magic place
On a thousand miles of highway
Ah!!!!! It’s gorgeous!
Incredibly sexy picture. Love the emotion from this. Ugh. So gorgeous!
You were my muse! I haven’t written since my book was published, all my post were things from old notebooks. Thank you for your motivation and visiting ❤
Ah! I’m flattered!
Listening to you speak, makes me giggle at certain times. Probably the times you intended a grin.
Well done. Very well done and thank you for your ridiculous support.
This was like take 7! 🙂 Recording can be so tedious!
This is beautiful!
Thank you, I just want to create something beautiful (:
And you did! Two months of old notebook posts paid off! I am looking forward to more beautiful pieces from you now that you are back to writing!
Hello, I have nominated you for The Liebster Awards
Awe I think that is awsome but my blog went award free 2013, I’m sorry. I am still trying to figure out a way to make it a little more obvious.
There’s a lot to find on a thousand miles of highway, living worlds, the crackling whispers of the wind. The sounds it makes beneath our feet, where some are stone and rigid, others loose with dirt and dust, but it’s the open ones, the highways of grass and trees. A thousand miles of changing landscapes, a thousand miles of life’s stories loved. Fantastic to feel the life of the fresh lines above, and your voice bring them to life in the mind.
Thank you Sean, your words always show me up, so poetic! ❤
The ‘listening’ of this –
what an enjoyable experience that was,
and it really brings out the black and white point you are trying to make.
And so true, some days making hay is so much more preferable than making ‘gray’ –
Gray can just be so much darned work!!
Wonderful reading 🙂
Thank you for listening and visiting, those grey areas can be awfully judgmental ❤
I love this for the beauty, the adoration, the freedom.
‘Random tokens of affection straddle my shoulder
And trickle down my spin’
These lines are fantastic; ‘trickle down my spin’ is going to stay with me for an age. 🙂
Thanks so for following my poetry blog!
THANK YOU FOR READING (:
Beautiful, heartfelt piece… I really enjoyed reading!
Thank you LadyT…
I will excuse your “Freudian slip” there are no edit buttons for commenters, WP needs to change that but I know what you meant 🙂
Lol, I meant sweet!
Very sweet! ❤
I guess it was a Freudian slip 🙂
I loved him on purpose and it was beautiful! He died in a car accident many years ago but he will always be remembered. He was my white and I was his black and there were no grey areas ❤
Condolences on your loss,
Your poem captured very strong
Emotions. I read it a few times
OK. It’s hard, really hard, to write a truly original, authentic love poem. This is masterful. Just stunning. Thank you. What a gift!
Thank you so much! I adore this one ❤️
Thank you Mr. Shepherd! ❤
Aweee, thank you so much!
So, so, so beautiful! And your reading was magnificent. 💜
Thank you jai, this is one of my favorites 🖤🤍
I can well understand why. 🙂
‘A thousand miles’ features a lot in poetry and lyrics, doesn’t it. I’m reminded of this – some Australiana for you, old Oz surfing song.
Gypsies ride from wonderland
I took my horse down to the sand
Underneath a thousand miles of sky
I watch the waves come tumbling down
And heard so many different sounds
Cleared my head and eased my worried mind
Im riding to shelter
Show me a sign
Lead me on to the tropical zone
Diamonds scattered out to sea
The sun keeps laughing down on me
This crazy horse is trying to chase the wind
(((((Hi Mr. Richmond!))))) I love the lyrics, true poetry! I love the instruments used to create this song! Hope all is fairing well in Australia ❤
Here in Oz we have a romance with the ocean and we frequently write love letters to her.
