Edge of Peripheral…

Peripheral

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

I can almost see you…

I know I don’t know you…

Simultaneously, I know everything about you…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

You are in my dreams…

In my thoughts…

We meet there occasionally…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

There is the known and unknown…

That magical seductive dance that ignites my imagination…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

Recognition….

There you are…

Waiting for me…

On the edge of peripheral…

I thought it would be fun to bring the now infamous weekly event known as “#TBT or “Throwback Thursday” to my blog. I originally posted this poem in January 2013 not knowing then that writing fictional/fantasy poems would one day become my ‘Dreamscape’. I have had so much fun writing…creating this imaginary world’s height, width, breadth, and depth with each new piece added to its borders.

{I did make some aesthetic changes to this current post; however, I kept the same photo and made no changes to the words except for spaces between them.}

This was originally one of a series of four poems that went together, posted one after the other within a few days of each other. I am hopeful to recreate that feeling by publishing the follow-up posts a few days apart in the next few days ending with next Thursday…to complete the fun of Throwback Thursday’s.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this look back into Reconstructing Christina’s past post as much as I did…to see, in essence, where my Dreamscape began. It has been my immense honor and constant encouragement to have you all either with me since then or to have joined my journey along the way….either way….

Thank you…ever so much!

Ostensibly Opaque…

crying

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

Colors of my soul…
Invisible…
Barely there…
Unseen…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅
Whisper lies cloaked in half truths…
Solemn cadence
Vestiges of madness…

On the crest of a fallen tear…
Encapsulating every hurt…every fear…every disappointment…
As it traces its way down my cheek…it brings forth clarity…insight…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅
Hope long suppressed struggles against its oppression…
Begging freedom…
Promising everything…
Seeking no remuneration…
Only opportunity to see itself fulfilled…
To bask in its beautiful rendition…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅
To turn what was ostensibly opaque…into vivacious vibrancy…

 To shine…

Whisper Love….

my ghosts are gaining on me Princess-of-Shadows deviant art

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅    

Softly spoken…
Evocative words…
My drug of choice…
Intoxicate me with your whispered touch…
Make the intangible…visceral…
Tracing my soul…my body… with each spoken affirmation of your love…your desire…
Transcendence via provocative susurrus…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅    

Evocative exigency…
Envelope me with the warmth of your breath…
Surrounding…
Pervading….
Intoxicating…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅    

Yes please…
Whisper love…

Tell me your secrets…
Share your soul with mine…
Consummate this love…
Unlock me…

Nevermore…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

Each night infused with insomnolence…

Fragmented Illusory images…

Each morning brings melancholic musings…

Daily demands dilute daydreams…

Rumination of life…

Daze of days…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

Haunted memories…

Beckoning me to remembrance…

In between the now…the then…the what may come…

Back and forth…

Here and gone…

Secretly disillusioned…

Transient thoughts…

Resolute promises disappear through the ethereal wish of a dream…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ     〜΅

Melancholy whispers…

Etching invisible scars…

Never ceasing…

Nevermore…

When The Sun Sets…

when the sun sets

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

Where will you be?

Watching the sunset paint the sky with furious reds, pinks, purple

evokes remembrance of fire and passion…

Vibrant hues deepening…

Transitioning twilight…

Melancholy imbued aftermath…

Where will you be?

Threshold of darkness…

Skyscape displaying its resplendence…

I watch…captivated…

Lost in my own shifting world and I wonder where will you be

when the sun disappears over the horizon …

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

I would imagine…

You will be watching the sun rise…

Epiphany 2

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

I see how different words are bestowed with a sublime radiance of varying hues of color…
Emotional gradation…

΅〜 〜΅ 

I observe my palette of words very carefully…
One mustn’t rush…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Slowly I begin to paint…first one then another…
I step back and look at the revealing of this new painting…
This creation of words blending into something wondrous…
Something hitherto unknown…
Time passes…

΅〜 〜΅

I look again…
I close my eyes…

΅〜 〜΅

I feel the tumultuous gathering…
The machinations of my senses coalescing into words…

΅〜 〜΅ 

Their birth a beautiful rendition of everything combining at once…
As if time has no meaning here…
Past, present, future collide into my Phantasmagoric Dreamscape…
Joining…rejoining…connecting…
Locking together as though they already know how they are to combine…
As if they each have their own purpose, thought, desire…
To be seen, read, understood…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

Epiphany…
Am I their painter…
Or are they mine?

Maybe fills Uncertainty…

Wrapped in risk…

What if’s abound…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

Machinations of love occupy thought…

Permeate senses….

Resonating reason leaving a trail of doubt…

Maybe prowls lurking…

Night’s shadow…

Unceasingly seeking the entrance to Heart’s fortress…

The path I fear to tread…

Caution in bold relief on Soul’s frieze…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

Love…potential probabilities…risk…life…safety…reason…

Internal discourse…

Preponderance of maybe…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

Left behind in the warmth of embrace…

Doubt dissipates…

Forgotten on the shores of Trust’s consistent building…

Daring me to walk on…

Pushing beyond that fear which I hide behind so well…

΅〜 ೋღ ღೋ      〜΅

One kiss…

Elucidation sets me free…

In the deep of night…
Shadows roam…
Casting illusory images…
Distortion deviates…
Inducing faux perceptions…
Paradoxical thoughts…
Night’s intrigue…
Interpretation of Goth’s inclination…
All in the deep varying hues of time…of thought…of soul…

Decadent daze…

A Soul’s dream

Intrinsically unique…

Unceasing in your power…

Curiously wondrous…

I marvel at you…

Reflections of constellations in your eyes…

Mirrored images of desire…

Bewitching…

Take my hand Love…Hold me close…

Dance me to the edge of this dream and back again…

Your name on my lips as you intoxicate me…

Remembrance resonates…

Magnetizing…

Fascination lights our way from the beginning of this…To the end…

Together…Entwined…

Enrapt in euphoria’s exquisite essence…

Blissful oblivion…

We shall surf the stars…

Rendezvous with celestial captivation…

Sweet surrender to forever…Held in moments of perfection…

Your heart to mine…Mine to yours….

Unceasing brilliance binding me inexorably to you…

Exhilaration permeates as delight evokes devotion to Souls’ completion…

Tumultuous emotions…
Dilution of enchantment…
Enticing facade permeates…
Truth’s Obscurity…
All ways on the edge of reality’s intention…

Discombobulated senses…
Confusion…
Choice…
Hidden all ways is that fragility of spirit…
Longing for everything…
Longing for nothing…
Be strong…be wise…be the carefully crafted charade…
Safety in the shadows…

Delicious ambiguity…
On the edge…
Decision’s deviation…
