Deepest Emotion

 

Hibiscus

Whether love works or whether it doesn’t
Whether timing is on or whether it isn’t
Love simply is
It seeps into our minds
and weaves into our hearts

Every sense is aware of its presence
We can feel it, hear it, say it, taste it
Try as we might to escape,
we’re captured with intensity
never felt before

Sometimes life guides us to letting go
but in the midst of elation, we hold on
and allow our hearts to soar

(I’m not sure this could be called poetry;
it’s more of random thoughts I felt like sharing) 🙂

Wishing you a Terrific Tuesday! ♥

Besotted

I’m not blaming you
for my eyes
seeing hearts
and my
temperature

off the charts

or for my muddled
mind
to which I have
resigned

and you’re not
at fault
for my tripping
feet or my sudden
desire to sing

at the top
of my lungs
for all to hear
without a drop
of fear

Then who’s
to blame

if not you
or me?

This is
unacceptable

for my
dignity!

Breaking Through

You are not all sour
even though
striving to prove

I’ll spend eternity
looking for the sweet
inside of you
The transparency
of your mask

beckons me and
I’m inches away from
seeing into your soul
Have you ever
been to the moon?

I can take you there

Our Time

016

Maybe we found love at the right moment in our lives
the clouds were formed perfectly; the planets were aligned
The sun rose brightly just for us over green hills beyond
the birds shared a lovely chorus with the sun at dawn

I can’t imagine how life would be without your smile
the joy it provides carries me for a million miles
And when I hear your laugh, you have me laughing, too,
and there is no resisting your magnetic baby blues

My mind wondered off and on if true love would ever find me
many moments were wasted with unnecessary worry
Then when I couldn’t prepare, love took me by surprise
after being held in your arms and one look in your eyes

I pray we get the chance, hand in hand, to grow old together
rocking on our cute front porch through any kind of weather
At sunrise, I only wish to feel your warmth and see your loving face
and I know it was meant to be for us to share life’s wonderful embrace

Love’s Decree

sunset 2 final

Your kindness
glows upon my world
pulling me into
forever surreal

When you give your love
my foundation shifts
like a gentle quake
I tumble in

Tenderly

you stir my soul
as a whirlwind
out of control

With you
I travel
the road to bliss
my heart’s content
a love so real

so I hope you don’t mind
reading it again, if you’ve

already seen it.)

Ruling

heart2

This obsessing has me fatigued
admittedly, you have me intrigued
For everywhere I look
you’re like a good book
I can’t seem to shake you
or bid you adieu
You live in my dreams
so real they seem
Invading my personal space
I need a hiding place
Your lips, your eyes
to be spellbound would be unwise
But, oh, how you make me feel
it’s positively surreal
I can’t commit to a declaration
of whether this is love or infatuation
although, I must concede to my desires
and the lighting of our fires
I’ve been arrested by your charms
as you hold me in your arms
My self control is missing
So sentence me to “kissing”

Flirting Forever :)

He: You’re easy on the eyes
She: I have to say likewise
He: Can I have your number?
She: Only if you’ll remember
He: Will you go out with me tomorrow night?
She: It would be a delight
He: The night was amazing
She: You have my heart racing
He: Can I kiss you goodnight?
She: I was hoping you might
He: Can I see you again?
She: I’d like that, when?
He: How about us together?
She: I’m thinking forever

I posted this two years ago (Jan. 2012) and
thought it would be fun to share again.
So I hope you enjoy a little “playful” for your Monday.
Happy Labor Day! ♥

 

Will You…

tulips 5

If I ask you…
Will you lie with me
share a moment
without expectations
only our feelings
connected?

Will you keep me warm
be soothed by my
breathing
no distractions
only heartbeats
in perfect rhythm?

If I ask you…
Will you lie with me
and listen
clear my mind
be my pillow
my lover and friend?

If I ask,
will you?

Free-Falling

hot air balloon by steph

The edge is inches away
One more step would be easy
Is your heart ready to fall
into forever and loyalty?

A soft landing is predicted
but there is no guarantee
bumps won’t occur with the
need for Band-Aids and Chablis

Persuasion is not my style
I want you to want me
So with endless devotion
will you help nurture our journey?

I see you in my tomorrows
and everything in between
Let’s take a leap of faith
with an everlasting warranty

Mt. Baldy

We were rising, riding to the top with
patches of green below. I could
have almost touched the sky. My skin
warmed with each look from the blue
in your eyes. You looked at me with
devotion, but you had something up
your sleeve. Our life’s path was about
to change; an anticipated detour for both
hearts. Nothing would ever be the same,
in a good way, like the fairytale that
replayed in my dreams. This place was
enchanting, so close to Heaven, where flowers
bloomed and time stood still and God gave
His blessing. The bubbly was on standby,
I didn’t know at the time…for this was where
you asked me to be your Wife, to share each
high, low, day and night and where you said
those three sweet words
to me for Life.
