Day 07: Beloved


Your path of loving

Like the peace of an untamed prey I lived,
Peaceful but always a vulnerable being,
From the depths of reality,
Came the harmony of your voice,
Unknown was the path that led to you,
Who would guess the mystery within?
I still negate you as the creator of it.


Soon I would discover your ethereal presence,
The confusion of not knowing if I´m called or dismissed,
The awe of not being able to decode your gestures,
I may not know you even after the stretch of time,
Maybe I´ve put myself as a blind adept,
That has worshiped your silence with mimic,
Making this a mutual sweet torture.


I have learned to love you beside of your absence,
I´ve sowed the seed of patience,
I´ve praised the sun of your beauty,
I´ve watered my patience in confused tears of happiness and hatred,
I´ve taken care of my mistakes and till now I can see,
I contemplate the distortion of love,
Of you? Of me?


Now I whisper: I love you,
As I leave your beautiful and mysterious path,
Thank you my beloved.


Today prompt

Something about the very word “beloved” causes a frisson in us. Out of the people that matter to you, who matters the most? Whom do you love, or whom have you loved more than anyone else? What does the word “beloved” summon up in your imagination? What songs, poems, stories, movies spring to mind? Who is your beloved?

Today, write a poem celebrating your beloved. It does not have to be a specific person — you could address an imaginary beloved from the future who’s waiting for you. You could take on the persona of a well-known mythological or historic character and address her or his beloved in your poem. You could create a new type of lover and beloved.

Love is a terrifying feeling for me, but as scared as I usually am, it´s a feeling I enjoy the most. This poem was inspired by one of the most enigmatic persons that have been in my life, the type you love and hate, but love because of both feelings.

I don´t really write a lot in English, but fortunately I´m having a great time doing these writing prompts.  Dear, reader if you notice any grammar errors, please let me know. Thanks :)
