Wellspring

Thank you so much for contributing to poetry and to JOP’s Poetry Event!

Words Monsters Me

One day soon I will know
why I came
why I kept breathing
why I stayed.
Your existence
will hold me
in the light.
I will pray
as we are intertwined.
You will whisper
to my soft until
the bright passageway delivers us
to an even greater destination.
I must move away from here
to that place towards you.
I must seek you knowing
I will find you.
My goblet is empty.
I drank the pleasure
in a hurry when I was young.
If I had known you then,
would things be different than
the way they were
the way they are
the way they will be
when I meet you?
I will not run away.
I will not play hard to get.
I will be sure in that moment,
when our symbiotic energy begins to coalesce.
You will know me, know everything.
Nothing will make you look away.
You…

    1. Hey WMM… if this meant for me (tho’ it’s on the main post thread), tbh WP is my only active form of social media, I have an old twitter account but don’t use it much and and same with FB and instagram. My email is liathepoet @ gmail.com. Very nice to exchange with you indeed!! Very grateful to John for the impromptu meeting space. ;)) πŸ™πŸ˜Š

        1. It’s completely different view on mobile and much more glitchy and finnicky than desktop, so I highly commend and am in awe of all that you are doing (since you mentioned on another thread that you haven’t been using laptop for the last month)!! Agreed agree, amen for John. :)) xoxo

        2. πŸ˜‰ My lap top has been doing weird things. I took it in to be looked at, but they found nothing. So then I decided to give it a vacation to rest and relax til May 1st…I hope the πŸ‘» is gone, baby gone when I return to it…;-) ✌

  1. Wow! I’d been writing on a wellspring theme on two of my blogs a couple of weeks ago; amazing to see the same theme threaded so elegantly, differently and originally in this poem. Beautiful work!! πŸŽ‰πŸ™ŒπŸ’•πŸ™

    1. Thank you Lia;-) I published this
      poem in a chapbook collaboration with another poet from NY. We did 6 chapbooks through out the seasons of one year. I think Wellspring came from one titled Awakening. Look forward to reading yours!

      1. Congratulations on the chapbook – and from NY, the hallowed publishing hub of the world no less! Wow, I am sincerely impressed.
        I have only online-published about 500 poems in five months on my own, from the farmlands of France. πŸ˜‚ I still can’t figure out how to stop long enough to make a book; massive blogging addict over here. πŸ˜‰So heartfelt congratulations and respect. πŸŽ‰
        And thanks so much for offering to check out my poem! you already have, actually – or at least you liked it, and you’re following both my blogs – which I truly appreciate and feel honoured by; thanks so much for that. Themes are universal and ’tis the season isn’t it. πŸŒ±πŸŒ·πŸ”†
        I’m sorry for my comment, though I meant every complimentary word. Like many others on WP you have a unique style and a different way of seeing things, which I think is wonderful. Thanks again πŸ‘―β€β™‚οΈπŸ’žπŸ™

        1. Oh no the chapbooks were self-published…and the other poet just happens to live there! And by seasonal I meant that we started in the fall of 2018 on Halloween and concluded our series this past Halloween. We had a mission and we accomplished it:-) βœ” They are available on Amazon, but honestly…I feel like I am just beginning to feel comfortable writing poetry. I am an essayist first, a play and short story fiction writer second and then s poetπŸ₯€ And forget about a novel…though I have several first & sometimes second chapters of about 6-8
          of them. I am still trying to get the nerve to post the one that is a Harlequin Romance style…It’s not my strong skill set. Like EEEKKK!!! πŸŽƒ 😁 Ha! I need to get over it and just do it! Maybe…

        2. OMG!!!! Harlequin romance style!! Love it! I learned about sex from those πŸ˜‚ then spent the next decade unlearning and railing against fiction πŸ˜‚ and now vaguely considering doing my own style πŸ˜† so I absolutely LOVE hearing this journey of yours. I think it’s much the same as mine (also first a CNF essayist) – minus the plays and fiction writing, for me – and I have a suspicion (from your profile image) that you are much younger than me — so makes it far more impressive. I was such a massive OCD perfectionist, it was a miracle I finally managed to spit something out into the world, anything at all. And now here I am spewing simple poems hot off the press… for me it’s major but when someone can discpline themselves to make any kind of book (who cares where it’s published! :)) to me it’s still amazing. If you have process posts on how you did it I’d love to read. I know there’s oodles online but I love these individual stories from fellow bloggers, those are my faves. the more true stories the better, that’s what I say. ;)) You’re such a light-filled person, it’s wonderful. Thanks for this amazing little comment interchange. πŸ’›πŸ”†πŸ™πŸŽ‰βœοΈ

        3. Lol!!! I love that story! For me they were in my grandma’s spare bedroom. 😏😁The long line of matching white spines on the shelf called to my little matchy-matchy and back-then-organized teenage personality. Each with its little oval cover-portrait thumbnail of a tall gloomy man ravaging an innocent young maiden… ayayay. The roads to heaven/hell are paved with… good marketing. ;)) πŸ˜„
