Warm Hand (1987 – age: 17)

November 5, 1987

Warm hand
I hold your
Warm heart

Strong arm
grab my
spirit
flow
gently
to the sea
shore
we face

Whisper breeze
words
to share

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

A shiver
breath
shared

In my heart
not
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.
