Infinite Melody

star 2

My universe lingered timelessly in a lonely state
where darkness followed relentlessly with no possible escape
Now you’ve altered my world since the start of that day
when my vision of life transformed in euphoric ways
The beating of my heart changed to an unknown tempo
and the bird’s debut ended with a beautiful crescendo
Your arms were there to catch me when I was about to fall
to save me from a shadow that kept me feeling small
How kind of you to share your love, to think of me as worthy
to look beneath my saddened soul and see my genuine beauty
Where gray was very greedy, you gently placed a star
shedding light upon my sky, erasing all my scars
I will show you equal devotion that you have revealed to me
and together we’ll fly in truth and trust for all eternity

  1. Lovely, Lauren – especially:
    ‘Where gray was very greedy, you gently placed a star
    shedding light upon my sky, erasing all my scars
    I will show you equal devotion that you have revealed to me
    and together we’ll fly in truth and trust for all eternity’
    XO ♥

  2. Beautiful – the lines that stood out most to me were “Your arms were there to catch me when I was about to fall \ to save me from a shadow that kept me feeling small” these felt like the centre of the whole poem to me (or my reading of it at least) x

  3. what lovely, romantic lines. 🙂 You’ve been blessed Lauren.

    is your poetry book going to be available as a Kindle book? I read almost everything on my Kindle now, would love to get a copy of your book too.

    • Thanks so much, Geraldine, and yes, my book is available on Barnes & Noble in paperback and Nook (ebook) for under $4. I don’t have a kindle so I’m not as familiar with these, but I think a Nook is the same thing…the links are on my Published Works page at the top of my blog and thank you very much. Let me know if you have any questions, too! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂
