hunger for

i went to the kitchen, after we hung up
i heard that confused mockingbird--
the one who professes day of night, or
has too much overbearing competition during the former--
or, even prettier a thought--KNOWS, but chooses the latter...

and was transported to
the hours with your voice in my ear
to the making, the building of ,
the nest he so longingly, desperately, achingly seeks...

the nest no one knows
what tree will proffer fork of branch for
or if you will ever harken to the song
and come forth to the light -- to my dark--
and offer to co-inhabit

one physical hunger -- by tasting, chewing, swallowing
was slaked;
the other.. the others...
deepened. listening, desiring, knowing
being one with and of and in his plea.
i still long for you on my tongue...

Cygnus, this is beautiful.

It is my deepest wish that you find some peace and comfort.

And that you are loved for all that you are and all that you are still to become.

You matter.

Always remember that.

Peace - Rene

Shadow-- I agree... even once we are with that one... never sate the hunger.
Oh, always try :D but... never let it die...

Thanks for visiting...

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Kyddryn...

Lady...

Seems it's down to just which tree...
:D

THANKS...

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Rene-- YOUR words are beautiful, and I thank you profusely for the wish/blessing.

The universe giveth, and taketh away...

In the balance I'm holding; I like the sway...

Thanks, Lady Rocks...

(blogger trouble-- my comment posted THRICE! BE-TZAR...)

Felinae said...

Haha, ok, you've got me!

Hiya Sweetie~
Very, very touching words indeed.

Perhaps the Pen is just as tormented by the overbearing hunger as the Cob. Mayhap she has a deep fear of swimming into the unknown and chooses instead to remain entrapped in her own nest.

Hugs~Felinae~

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

That the pen hath a nest, and the cob unable to provide... it is understandable.
But...

I have an acorn. And am intent on growing a tree with MANY BRANCHES...

I mean-- HE-- the cob...

I better quit whilst the webbed foot is only half beak-ingested! lol!

THANK YOU, my dearest penpal...

Tujours, thank you...

Felinae said...

Aye, but the amount of branches matters not to the Pen. She hungers only for the nearness of said Cob, to be taken under his wing for all eternity, but alas her fear is far greater than the reward...

Hugs~Felinae~

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

And so her fear feeds her...
and he continues to hunger...

Felinae said...

Can she not sate his hunger from afar until such a time when she is no longer afraid

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

And so he drifts forever.. feeding on nibblets where he can find, and knows not true sustenance...
But... SOME DAY..

Some day he shall partake, and provide Pen with nest, and be sated.. for a night and in the morn and afternoon and...

Felinae said...

Some day.....

When that day comes, Pen will gladly spread her wings encompassing Cob and sating him completely, fully like no other before she, for Pen can refuse him naught.

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

And so, like the Children of Llyr, or like Oengus, for hundreds of years he will drift, awaiting..

Awaiting Yew... Berry. YEW Berry...

okay-- are we out of control yet? lol!
I hope ... so... I do so hope...

Felinae said...

Didn't Oengus eventually get Caer to stay with him?

lol..yeah, hopelessly outta control, but I wouldn't want it any other way...would you? ;)

Hugs~Felinae~

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

No, M'Lady... SHE eventually had him take Swan form so they could be eternally together, a year pen and cob, a year human...
But.. HE DREAMED of HER...

Just so we're clear! lol!

And no-- I may as well abandon controll- since I never had it anyhow!

Hugs, my arse.

Love, j.

Felinae said...

But they were together...

We are crystal clear.

Go ahead and abandon it, live dangerously, heehee

What? you don't want hugs?....What would you rather have? ;)

Hugs~n~Love
~Felinae~

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

My PEN...
I want My PEN...THE ONE...

Just so we are crystal-clear...

Felinae said...

I believe my Cob, you have your Pens heart compeltely ensconced within yours.

For now that's all she can offer, her heart.

Hugs~n~Love
~Felinae~

I do hope your kitten has appeased your hunger somewhat...if not then perhaps you should not have 'hung up' so hastily ;)

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Ah bless this poor ol' bird... so easily hung... um.. hung up...

Well, cette l'heur por le super...
