Who Do You Need, Who Do You Love

Whispers in the air, smoke tangled in my hair
Was I here, were you there
A dream, only a dream

Mine, immaculate dream made breath and skin
I’ve been waiting for you

Circling, closing in, the wolf and its prey
Pulling closer and tearing away
Shattered edges, a razor’s bouquet

Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone

Scorching, icy eyes set ablaze
Wild, pure, slicing through the haze

Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone

Rushing beauty, thundering heart
Exquisite crushing, pain’s stunning art

Who do you need, who do you love
When you come undone

Tenderly held, longingly drowned
Love’s beauty, finally, perfectly crowned

  1. Very good, enjoyed this poem a lot, and before I read your comment below the poem, the song that it reminded me of is Who do you love, by Jim Morrison and the Doors, so in your honor tomorrow I will blog this song, Best wishes and blessings, Charles.

    1. Thanks very much, Charles! I’m glad you enjoyed this one. Great idea; I’m looking forward to your blog tomorrow and I’m already honored! The Doors’ drummer John Densmore did a fantastic job on Who Do You Love. Now I’m thinking of George Thorogood’s and Bo Diddley’s songs…. Thanks again 🙂
