what it means to live in paradise?

Guarded Emotions

 

Sweetest love, you are always welcome

I keep open my doors…

So I may tell you in a boozy voice

What it means to live in paradise

All alone…

 

My amour… without you

I feel like a ghoul

With blood running cold

Waiting and crying.. oh take me

To that state beyond ecstasy

That  you have known

And I have known

And none else…

 

See, how my face turns ashen

In tearful anticipation

With bated breath I wait

For some moments intimate

I am not a poem person. I don't like poems but I think you may have just changed that..
I think this poems is full of very strong feelings...
And I hope that you will continue making poems as beautiful as this......

This was very good- this is probably my new favorite poem of yours, it has better fluency than the others although your detail has always been great.

Oh that was nice. I love how it trailed off at the end, so it was like the emotions of it don't end. I really enjoyed this meaning, and the way you expressed that. A good poem.

Hi Ruby! The first thing I ever see before your poems is your picture, so I compared it to the title and thought 'a key that keeps emotions guarded'. Also the key you used, though silver, is almost identical to one I've seen in a show I'm watching at the moment, so I thought it was an interesting coincidence. Because of the title I'm immediately thinking that the narrator feels lonely. Her (could be his) waiting and crying and tearful anticipation for her unions with her love. It feels like she's a prisoner of these intimate meetings and her real emotions remain unspoken. Thanks for sharing this wonderful poem Ruby!
