who is she?...if... 2 for 1

who is she
that reaches for dreams
that somehow seem
just beyond her

who is she
that gets lost in thoughts
as seen through her mystical
and philosophical eyes

who is she
that paints pictures
and has the need as deep
as the deepest ocean

who is she
that wishes to be free
to roam this world like the
bohemian soul that resides inside of her

who is she
that moves in & out of her reality
because at times, what is, is just too harsh to bear

who is she that longs for her lover
during those moments when he feels
a million miles away

who is she that mothers her children
and nurtures with a sometimes sad and
overwhelmed heart

who is she? ...

she is me!

if i were able i would uplift
the angst in this world
i would bring Light to
every corner, every darkened path

and so that you could see your
way to me, to us.

if i were able, i would sing
with the voice of an Angel
to soothe the pains
of those who cry
and so that you could hear me and
my silent tears...

if i could i would find you
and keep you near

and live upon that nearness

...until the day i die

Your poetry, images and background are so ethereal and haunting. Yet your words also convey much more than the mystical - but also something that really resonates with my experience.

I think you may be right! Kindred Spirits!!!

Thank you for your kind comments on my blog.

you already
bring Light
to the world, and
everyone who knows you would agree!

done. doing it. check!

and i think i speak for all
when i say that it's time
for that Light to come back around
to you. for you.

it's time for your love to be absorbed and reflected. for all of your Art to circle back around and touch you.

please ask. believe. receive.

it's already above you! so close! within you!
open your eyes, and take it.

You are able to express your heart's song with such beauty, Calli. So honest, so open.

I admire that.

Reading through your many poems I find it even more amazing that at times your words reflect my own heart.

Thank you for saying it so poignantly.

Beautifull, and I think mystery plays a big role in it, because we will never know the answer about sho she is.

elusive dreams... well said, calli

Karen said...

Calli, you are such a tender and caring soul. May your dreams be reached.

Cynthia said...

Your first poem Calli gives the
reader a vision of yourself. A
gentle, free-hearted soul. Written
gently and a bit shyly.

The second poem, especially the
Angel verse is breathtaking,
so heartbreaking in a compassionate
gracefully written manner.

I enjoyed both poem immensely.
However, again the Second Poem's
Angel: I would sing with an Angel's
voice to soothe the pains of those
who cry, so that you could hear
my silent tears. OH.
