Immortal Love

Immortal Love
Kay L. Rice

He comes to me in my sleep,
Awoken from fantasies buried deep.
He whispers to me, disguised by the night,
and beckons me to come into his sight.

The room fills with an ice-cold breath,
Hushing the fireplace of sparks which are left.
The window opens wide with a rushed gentle force,
His presense arrives like a cyclone’s burst.

“Come fly with me,” he takes hold of
my hand,
“Take leave of this cold brutel land.
Wash away your tears”, sealed with a kiss,
“The tragedy of life you no longer will miss.”

I take to the night with a new set of eyes,
A love so deep where there are never good-byes.
The window slams shut on the world I once knew,
By his side I join a world, gifted to only a few.



I have always said that my poetry and short stories write themselves, I'm just the hand that holds the pen. Several of my poems have been published in local publications and in the 2011 World Poetry Movement book 'Stars in our Hearts'. Please enjoy the words, but do not steal them. I enjoy living and what life brings my way. My day job, I'm a geekgirl, a programmer. Coding is like using clues to solve a mystery to me. But, my happiness outside of the day job involves, cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting, writing, hiking, primitive skills. Yup, I come home and unplug. So there are many sides of me here. Enjoy.

  1. This is really beautiful. A phoenix is one of the main character’s in my YA romantic fantasy novel The Crashes of Waves (Rebekah Nicole). This captures the imagery of the phoenix so accurately.
