Sunday Poetry with Gypsy Woman, Jenean C.  Gilstrap. Today: love interruptus

love interruptus

we had only just begun
our act of love
virginal love
both virgins in love such as this
love immaculate love supreme
pure love but a love unprotected
from the ravages of reality
unprotected from the claims of others
unprotected love
seeking sanctuary
in the arms of each other
seeking fulfillment
and deeper
bearing us both to the brink
the brink of the white light
blinding us both to all
but the moment
the stolen moments
moments molded from
lifetimes of hunger unabated
leaving love defenseless vulnerable
uncovered naked open
the only salvation
the only way
to interrupt to stop to go no further
pull out pull away
my self my body
from the crimson cavern of us
our love
before it
before it was too late
too late for a lateness
that could never be undone
pulling out
pulling away
before the seed of love
traveled further
inward and further still
implanting itself attaching itself
to the cores of our hearts
fertilized by forces impenetrable
forces unknown unforeseen unforsaken
love revolving evolving into life
into life bigger than our own
the life of us together
life beget by passion
by love
by virginal love
pure love
but never my heart
never my heart

Jenean C Gilstrap

Since childhood, Ms. Gilstrap has had a love of words-of writing and other arts. An individualist, she chooses not to follow any pre-conceived pattern for the outlay of these words – rather, she allows them the freedom to forge their own path as they make their way from her heart to pen to paper. Her art work involves both photography and mixed media on large canvasses. She is a weekly featured poet in Yareah Magazine where her works have appeared for more than a year. Her piece The Granite God was the winning poem in Painted Bride Quarterly Sidebar #12 [2012]. Her work has been featured in performance poetry theatrical productions in Louisiana and her short story, Retribution, published in the Helicon Literary Magazine there. She and her gypsywomanworld blog are included as character/story elements in Ghost Key, the fictional work of award-winning author Trish MacGregor. Her first volume of poetry [2013], words unspoken, is available in both paperback and on kindle at amazon. She currently divides her time between her home in Louisiana and the east coast as she completes her second volume of poetry to be published in 2013.
