Warm Hand (1987 – age: 17)

November 5, 1987

Warm hand
I hold your
Warm heart

Strong arm
grab my
to the sea
we face

Whisper breeze
to share

Soft pale skin
sensual touch
lips to
red lips
white neck
soft pale

A shiver

In my heart
to swim
float in
the warm
sea air
life in you
warm hand

Over the next few weeks I will be spending time with my 16-17 year old self from 1987. In no particular order, these poems will be presented in the final form I found them on computer discs discovered in an attic many years ago. This will culminate in the next entry of my Into My Own, My Story as a Writer.Β  The first of the series can be found here:

    well it was a youthful voice not yet seasoned with life. stronger voice now that touches those that read your words.

    You will be like a kid on Christmas morning opening that box of writing! I wish you joy as you reconnect to the words you have kept hidden for so long.

    meaning the voice before or the voice now isn’t “ready” yet? I am intrigued now to compare my voice from before and now, crazy thing is my collection of writing from my youth is in Rocky Mountain country, kept by a friend who said one day my writing would be read by the world!! the irony of life!

    such a sweet poem from a younger you, lovely to see you still retain that gentleness in your writing. but there’s a tightness to the verses like restraining ones self, your words flow better now, warm hands are lovely to hold.
