ENTITY

I have no heart, yet still I heartless go
in search of love. Non-physical,
should I then languish in limbo
for eternity, devoid of hope or aspiration?

In your dreams, feel invisible fingers
caressing the inner recesses of your mind.
Register my face. Love me, then forget me -
and us - when you awaken.

But a presence lingers at the edge of consciousness,
loving you in secret.
See me in the trees, the grass
and in a stranger's face:

an invisible overshadowing
that inexplicably disturbs your senses
and toys with your keypad, playing it like a piano.
The entity in the machine

composing messages with double meanings
that only you can decipher.
Then as your heartbeat quickens,
my image fills the screen...

  1. Oh my dear Ygraine, I feel your loss, your pain I live for my nightmares or such beautiful dreams, then I wake up empty...every time, I feel your pain, and send you love and hugs xoxoxo

    1. Oh Sweetie...you are so kind.:)
      I was just pondering the possibility of a ghost still loving someone he/she has left behind on the earthly plane...what it would be like...how he/she would find a way to communicate with the loved one.
      Then it became obvious - either in dreams, or via the computer screen!
      (Please remind me of this when I pass over?) lol

      Have a great day!:)

    4. He certainly is, Geraldine...in fact he can still hardly believe it!
      Yes, we are planning to spend more time together throughout the coming summer. Hopefully by then he will have gained some weight and will feel a lot stronger.

  8. __When you secretly love yourself, 'tis easy to give that love to others; your reward is your silent inner smile as it builds your desire... to give more.

    grand longing
    this secret love of yourself
    that gives

    1. Such wise words, Doug ~ as always.
      I guess love really does begin within ourselves...yet self-love seems in such short supply in these modern times...:/

  11. That's a beautiful poem my friend.

    I'm no longer who I thought I was, for it was all a lie, for there has been much searching going on in my life which has brought me back to who I truly am, if you'd like to stop by you're welcome to click my name on this comment of mine and it will take you there.

  13. My dearest, Ygraine...what a haunting and beautiful dream. Ghostly images of someone we love/loved/will love...or someone that has passed but, visits his or her, love from when alive. My mother came to me in a dream about one month after she passed away...I truly needed to feel her presence near me once again and she was there~

    Many Hugs and Much Love, Always

  15. Bom dia, O amor não é só físico, ele existe de varias maneira, até na imaginação e nos sonhos, a vida sem amor é vazia e cinzenta.

    1. So, so true, AG...I think we often overlook the invisible kinds of love...and end up living empty lives.
      Thank you so much.:))
