Poem -

Incessant Ache

Incessant Ache

The incessant ache has already started
Just when I thought love left, dearly departed
I feel the faithful flame kindled in my heart
The fire you fan as a gentleman’s impart

I have seen you before, lingering in dreams 
But I dismissed the bliss as not mine to redeem
How could I have known your sad eyes with a smile
Would torment me in a time-tested trial

You are the picture of perfection, unknown
Revealed to me secretly in sleep’s love zone
I long for you to embrace me as I wake
For living without you seems fate’s great mistake

I reach for your affection, instinctually
Wishing at twilight you could be holding me
I wait abidingly, for Heaven’s twist of fate
As I feel you inside, as my incessant ache

***I enjoy writing love poems with many
different themes. I hope to get a collection 
together to publish in a book next year. Thank you,
my Cosmofunnel friends, for all your support.

Hi T!.....Thank you for believing in me. I want the poems that go into my book to be my very best work, and that is so hard for me to pick and not be critical about. I do think the poems I am doing now best represent what I want to share. Writing is such an important part of who I am and my way of leaving a part of me here when I am gone someday. And what better words to leave behind than ones that express love....what inspires me most! Thank you for all your support.  Hugs n Kisses, C xoxox

I look forward to it too!  I feel this site is going through a transitional faze.   Your work always inspires me and makes me smile.

Hi Simon. Thank you!  I have been wanting to do a poetry book of my work for a long time.  I am working on a novel too, but it is taking longer for me to do, so I may put the poetry collection out first...of my more passionate love poems.  Cosmofunnel seems a bit dead this summer, but I hope it picks up and more commenters and poets share on here.  I am thankful for all your support of my work, though.  Thank you!  ;) xo

Hi Cheerie, 
What a beautiful poem. You can really tell what kind of heart people have from their writing, and I really love the way you show yours, so romantically, and lovingly. I could read your writing all day(although my employer may not like that), and can't wait until your book comes out. How exciting, but if anyone deserves it, it's you. Please don't ever stop writing, I really like looking through your heart. 

Beautiful, 

Matthew.

Hi dear Matthew, ....Thank you!  What a flattering comment!  I am honored that you like my work so much.  I definitely feel at home writing love poetry and all things romance...lol  I think the world would be a much more beautiful place if love was at the heart of everyone's motivations.  I am sensitive to the emotional pull of what touches me.  Thank you for encouraging me...I will let you know when  my poetry book comes out.  I am also working on a novel, but it is slow going.  I feel spread in so many different directions right now....But love will always be my top priority and express itself in my writing.  You are the best! ;)

Love n Hugs, Cheerie ;)

Hey Cheerie, 
When God attached those wings to you, was it painful at all? I hope not. 
Thanks Angel. 

Love, 

Matthew.

Lol...No, not at all, ....but what was painful was trying to pull the horns off and pointed tail.... Ouch!  ;)  But you are sweet.  ;)

You were a yak??!!! I love yaks. I'm glad you were previously one. Kidding. 
If you're Luciferian, I'm...in big trouble. lol. 

You're the best!

Lol....Maybe in another life I was....I know you love yaks...I have read your poems about them....They are not as beautiful as horses though....but befitting of your comical personality.  Don't worry, I gave up my past Satanic occult life a long time ago...I am getting used to my bat wings....lol  :)

Well, yaks get a bad rap, I feel bad for them. I used to counsel yaks at my first job, and they really take it hard that no kid ever answers the question 'what's your favorite animal', with them. Some day I'd like to take yaks into Kid's Community Centers, and Older Folks Homes to show them that yaks are people, too, and have feelings, and fur, and horns, and stuff. They're not just smelly. I had one particular patient who thought they were a mole. It was harrowing. 
Anyway, up with yaks. I'm glad we're on the same page regarding them. 

Love, 

Matthew.

Sorry Cheerie! I'm a little loopy from the yak fumes. 
Disregard me.

It's okay....Open a window and you should be much better....but I don't know how you work with all the hubba-balloo of a yak's constant jokes and mating calls..whew!  You are really talented to work in that environment.  I am impressed. ;)

LOLOLOLOLOL>>>> Well, maybe you could start a campaign and website to preserve and protect the yak's reputation.  I am a part of an organization called - "Return to Freedom," that protects and homes wild horses, so why not yaks?  I am sorry if I ever made you feel that I didn't take your love for yaks serious....but it is the way you portray them that makes them a joke....It is really symbiotic how birds eat insects and pests off of their backs and the yaks are so very laid back and cool about giving them a free ride.  I can see the attraction to their personality.  ;)  xo

LOL, and sigh. You're so cool. 
Please disregard this again, but I was actually saved by a yak as a young boy of 32. I had climbed up a 3000 foot precipice to retrieve a soccer ball that Billy McFlindle had thrown there just to show off his new, bionic arm, and slipped on some leeks that had taken up residence there. I fell, begrudgingly, and just as I was about to hit the ground, I glanced at a TV some yaks were watching there. It happened to be the Looney Tunes episode where Bugs Bunny was falling, but then just steps sideways off of a piece of cliff, and leisurely walks away. I tried it, and it worked, and ever since then, I've been grateful to yaks. If it weren't for them, I might be a great deal shorter today. 

Anyway, yak fumes...remember. 
Sorry. 
You're the greatest. 

Matthew.

Lol....Of course  yaks would love Looney Tunes...lol....how befitting.  I believe everything happened just as you say....lol  Great memory for you I am sure.  ;)  I will never think of yaks the same. Thanks for sharing humor on this site....We need that! xo

Thank you, Cheerie, for laughing with me! You're great. 
Yaks will surprise you if you get to know them. They love farcical comedies, marionettes, Ball Park franks, felt, and their favorite Monopoly space is Marvin's Gardens. They're really spectacular...in a fiduciary-type of way. I could sing their praises all night, except my message voice is becoming scratchy, and irritated...like a yak in the summer. 
You are so fum! 

Matthew.

Lol...Well, you certainly are a yak expert, and I am learning so much about them from you. You really should write a book and educate the public on how really charming, intelligent, playful, versatile, and lovable they are. You have demonstrated without a doubt that you are a true friend and advocate for the yak!  I know they feel so fortunate to have your endorsement and friendship...and me too  lol   ;)
