Ring

Your friendship is

A ring on both our fingers

We can bury it for years

It won’t tarnish

You crossed over to my world

And climbing through my window

You left muddy footprints spoiling the plain carpet forever

When I go to look for you

I hear your rustling words like music

Taste feelings like rain on my tongue

You made a fetish of me and wear it around your neck

I keep your calipso dance beneath my iron bed

For when I am alone

You are there

Velvet pocketed and never faltering

My love is

A brand I welcome

As we cannot exchange skins

We can remove our fear

Let it hang neglected on a clothes peg

Whilst we kick off our shoes

Feel the vibration of knowing

In each other is the river

Reflecting on shining surface

Deeply felt things, resting below.

    “you made a fetish of me and wear it around your neck

    These lines give me magic… thank you as always for writing!

  2. An absolutely beautiful poem, and these exquisite words set a perfect aura for your verse.
    “I hear your rustling words like music

  3. Love it. favorite lines:
    You made a fetish of me and wear it around your neck
    I keep your calipso dance beneath my iron bed

    and the last three lines. I’m thinking if you sang you would be bigger than Sarah Mclaughlan.

  4. I do not know why this piece made me cry so much. I can barely see the screen Candice. You are one of the few writers that touch my soul in so many levels when i read your RAW EMOTIONS. Thank you for what you do to me.

  5. I love it when you read my poetry. I was just going through C’s amazing poetry book for her, and I re-read the ones you guys did together, they were some of the best, she’s awesome, but the two of you are equally incredible together, you write so well together compared to most people who really do better writing on their own. You should write another poem together. Anyway it got me thinking about you and how I loved your writing and then I saw you had paid a visit to my site and I was so happy 🙂

  6. Yeah we really should! We do write very well together, it’s a very rewarding experience. She’s wonderful. LoL Candice, I absolutely love your work. I try not to miss a single poem. I’m happy I made U happy 😁❤️

  7. Wow that’s a lovely thing to say and it means a great deal coming from you. I really love your work with C too and it’s not often that collaborative work ‘works’ in my humble estimate but you guys really rock it. You did make me happy my friend
