Silent Lover

Two Lost Lovers by Gabriela Caranfil

Two Lost Lovers by Gabriela Caranfil

Silent Lover 




write you, a

letter, but I can

share my soul written into this –



crux, filled

with eternal breath;

light, numbers spread infinity




their meanings?

know them well, I wait –

(impatient,) knowing your silence

stars –


my eyes,

flowing gold,

specs, craving your words,

that will not pierce my ears, or sight


I wanted to write a poem to go along with the image I found, but as I was searching through my drafts I stumbled upon this one. I ended up publishing this Fibonacci style poem in my book Affinity (Into Infinity). For some reason, the urge to share the poem along with this image consumed me. Some of my other poems feel too raw for me to share. I am delicate with emotion today, but unsure of what those emotions are which leaves me at the height of vulnerability. It makes it a pleasure for my Muse. 🙂

    I love how you explained your thoughts behind the poem. For me, it made it that much sweeter to read, and I felt like I was holding a delicate flower. Oh how many times I have felt exactly the same way and said nothing! So much of my poetry. And yet others are pulled from drafts and thrown onto my blog like splattered paint, to see if anyone else can see the image that may have been projected in them. I feel moved by your vulnerability, which I share, and inspired by your muse. Have you seen my poetry?

    • Hi hiddinsight!

      Thank you so much for your comment! I have not seen your poetry yet, I just clicked over to have a look and I just saw your post about “vulnerability!”

      I love the quote you share:

      “Vulnerability is not weakness. And that myth is profoundly dangerous. Vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity, and change.” ~Brene Brown

      I have been watching Brene Brown video on TED about vulnerability off and on for a year now. I forget about it and then, something reminds me to watch it again… such as today!

      I am looking forward to reading your poetry! It is comforting to know others “feel” these things too. 🙂

    So beautiful and tender these words are.
    Like floating above the ground with that sense of peril mixed with gentle excitement. Warm, embracing and lovely.

  3. Angel, your additional thoughts are always appreciated! I ‘discuss’ with my Muse what I SHOULD write, but not necessarily what I should.. .POST! Most vulnerable is sometimes, most creative! 🙂

    • Well Greg, my “Muse” just pushed me to new heights of vulnerability today! I do tend to keep some poems tucked away inside my head because I feel to fragile. I feel a tinge of fear when they come to life through my fingers lingering into the cosmos forever. They then, exist and there is nothing can be done – they dance upon the stars for infinity! I am beginning to wonder how much it would bring healing to me if I were to allow some of them to exist though… 🙂
