    I want to hold you and kiss your sweet lips
    Gently touch your face and tell you I'm yours
    We must prepare for our moments of bliss

    The time before the time we love is key
    It's during that time all emotions rise
    To the point our bodies and souls are free

    There is no need to rush or move too fast
    We must take our time to enjoy this time
    That's the only way making love will last

    Finding new rhythms we turn and we glide
    Creative in movement we come alive
    Teasing the moisture and aching inside

    Our bodies tell us true is this fusion
    Now we are ready for love's explosion

    BE

    "the time before the time we love

    is key"...

    You are "armed and extremely dangerous". :) This is my favorite heartbeat from your vintage collection, BE. Yes it is.

    Thank you Poets. Between the commercialization of Valentine's Day and this so called Black History Month thing...February is not my favorite month of the year. However, the expression of love at any time of the year is A-OK with me.

    Certainly I agree with you heartbeat!

    This month is so commercialized.
    I would have hate to have been the only one to feel this way, but it is so true!
    Thanks for the Wonderful piece poet! :toast:
