“There is no secret left in the fact that I am madly in love with you. My happiness glows on my face and my smile gives it away. I have tried hard but now I can’t do that anymore.”

–Sheila Johns

You left a trail for me to follow
little drops of love and passion
sprinkled here and their
on my soul
every time you touch me
and every time you make me whole
I was too naive to understand
I was too lost in your 
words laced with 
passion and desire
to know completely and for sure
that you left those
straight to your heart
those breadcrumbs for me to follow
I was too innocent to understand
that every time your fingertip
traces my curves
they are making a map 
on my soul
to find that hidden treasure
for me to look for it 
and to savor
for the time eternal
and every time those 
fireworks were lit inside me
brightening  the dark corners of my heart
I was too naive to understand
that you were leaving
breadcrumbs for my heart to follow.
I was too occupied to understand
 those sweet nothings
you whisper in my ear
those little notes of love
you scribble 
with your fleeting touch
is the serenade,
a love call,
for the hearts lost in this 
maddening life
I was too ignorant to understand
that those honey laced whispers
were the breadcrumbs 
for my heart to follow.
Your little breadcrumbs trace a path to my salvation
my soul’s eternal glow.

        Joseph wore a coat of many colours, Jesus wore a crown fit for a king
        When evil comes it doesn’t wave a banner evil will not harm us hear us sing
        We are united we are as one it will not harm us it does not belong.

  1. Love the allusion to Hansel and Gretel. We all long for that touch to light the path to that eternal soul that is ours in life. So beautifully written, as always.

      1. You are kindly welcome, my friend. Yes, we certainly are. Sometimes we find the crumbs and other times it seems the crows get to them before we do and so we keep searching.

  2. Spectacular! I always get so mesmerized and lost in the pieces you write. You may accuse me of not doing it often… 😛
    This poem was so romantic, a bit sensual if someone take it that way and a bit sad as well. I got those three feelings out of this wonderful mastery of “The Megha”, I found here on WordPress.
