Conjure You

20120317-005235.jpg
Lonely, I conjure you
But conjure you is all that I can do
Spells with which I summon you
Are whispers that this empty night rebukes

Lonely, I conjure you
A figure woven of the finest air
Ghosts and stolen residue
Afoot upon the vagrant shards of moon

Lonely, I call for you
In saline brews of misbegotten eyes
Wrung from hollow avenues
Of brokenhearted alabaster truth

Lonely, I conjure you
But conjure you is all that I can do
Phantasms and dreams of you
Are dancing slowly in this burning room

  2. Oh so romantic! And the desperate of romance! Lovely πŸ™‚

    Sorry for coming after so many days. Med school and studies

    You poetry is always a pleasure to the mind πŸ™‚

  3. Beautifully written, as always, VW, and this verse is one example of your “word brilliance:”

    “Lonely, I call for you
    In saline brews of misbegotten eyes
    Wrung from hollow avenues
    Of brokenhearted alabaster truth”

    Tardy, I am, once again! πŸ™‚

  4. Doomed to fall
    Storms without calm
    I want to hold you
    But I can’t seem to at all

    Destined to part
    Dancing with distance
    This burning love
    Tragic from the start

    My dreams filled with you
    My dear, why?
    We should know by now
    But I’m still holding to the moon

    • Empty rooms
      With shadows shaped
      Like us and you
      But no one stands
      Where someone should
      The shadow only
      Lines the wall
      A shape of one
      I love with all
      And long to see
      Just once again
      My kindred heart
      My muse–my friend

  5. This is another one of your fine poems Vampire Weather, actually I thought that I had already commented on this one as I originally read it in my updates, so I must be losing the plot me thinks? πŸ™‚ Your words are always added effectively and almost without effort you engage your reader base wonderfully my fine and wicked friend πŸ™‚

    Have a very nice rest of evening now πŸ™‚

  7. I just enjoyed this wonderful ode of missing the beloved, imaginine the beloved in absentia, on a reblog over at tigergroves. This is such a honorable way to remembr the absent beloved one–in conjuring.

  8. Oh, Dear, I cannot begin to truly express how this moved me. It is poignant and lovely and sad and tragic and I’m crying and at a loss. I love your poetry.

    All of it.

    • Gillian, thank you for visiting my realm. I am honored by your kind assessment of my work, and I shared your tears when I wrote it. Your compliment is humbling, and I am very grateful! I hope you will choose to return again πŸ™‚

      • If you haven’t figured it out .. you can’t get rid of me, dear. You’re stuck with me.

      • My goodness, you just arrived! Why ever would I want to be rid of you? You are always welcomed here, though you may want to bring a candle. It has been dark here lately πŸ™‚
