What Love Sought
Love the arrow. filling our heart…
When the blackest of deepest night fades away to day
and with my love we so blissfully, quietly, closely lay,
sweetness incredible, unbearable takes hold of we
and looses our hearts wildly, happily and free-
Mouth to mouth, mmm, bare flesh to bare flesh
seeking, finding so sweetly- their one true mesh,
emotions crackle, o! such tension soars
urgency rides hard yet ends in love’s open doors-
A true breathless oneness within our grasp
together in the hands we so tightly -so lovingly clasp-
we can not separate the pounding thundering heartbeats
the trembling, shivering…quivering of the flesh that meets
Soft sighing cries, no surprise, an earth shattered moan
the wondrous blush of love’s bounty , so gracefully owned,
when all love pours forth…flowing honeyed from our hearts
’tis rapture too sweet and overflowing, the joy is
bursting…from love’s………..sweetest tart-
Thee……me…O! we together! surely,
the most wondrous part!
This poem was written in 20 minutes at one sitting in July 2004. I had not written a poem in over 25 years at that point. I really love the style of Shelly, Byron, all the romantics..Get your hand fan, because this poem is what I imagine real love to be . I did not write much of anything for 6 years after this..
This photo is a self portrait of me, I was channeling Liz Taylor (haha), it was the jewelry I'm wearing that I made. I was thinking about that moment when the one you are waiting for appears before you look up and see them. that moment when love appears.
