Our Forever Far Away… (Spoken Word Poetry)


Outstretched fingertips,


Across new day’s dawn,
Arcing emptiness,
Miles and emotions,

Straining to touch,


Slipping free
Rusted shackles,
Chain links of loneliness,

Grasping heart’s freedom
Far flung infinitude,
Shimmers of mutual destiny,

Longing for
Boundless blue skies,
Verdant, Elysian Fields beneath,
Our bodies and spirits alive…

Lustrous eternity together awaits.

This mere moment,
Souls separately searching,
Our story not yet written,

But a right rich horizon,
So close.

Hands clasped,
Pulses paired,
Hearts rapid, racing,
First step forward,

Our forever far away,
But with courage to live,
Deeply committed,
Together, first step taken,

Our forever,

So very, very close.

      2. Well… I haven’t quite figured that out yet, but when I do, I will write a book about it. Best seller, right there! 😁

        You, Bill, always bring such light to my days. Thank you for that and the beautiful bday wishes. 🙂

      3. You, Brandi…are a very special person.

        To your family, to your friends I’m sure…and to all of us out here in WP land as well.

        You are our blessing.

        Just sayin’.

        Oh…and you can take off your foil hat now.

        No one will know but me.

      4. You are very kind, my friend. Your words touch my heart. It’s always good to know I’m in the company of those who appreciate me and you are one of those amazing souls I speak of. Thank you for being so welcoming of me, my friend. It truly means a lot to me. 🙂

        As for the foil hat, I have no idea what you are talking about. (hides it behind my back) 😁

  1. “shimmers of mutual destiny and stories not yet told” remind me of a love that has survived a reincarnation looking for its soulmate, this is my new favourite Bill, a story I am very fond of has lines so similar to this.
