    for g.j. & c.m. "good things come to those who wait" :heart:


    though their eyes have grown dimmer
    they see each other clearly
    with their hearts
    as they cling to each other
    fully engulfed in the afterglow
    they ignited 30 years ago...

    she is thinking about all the
    words they've passed between
    them as she listens intently
    to the rhythm of his soul
    all those letters ~
    notes declaring unending love
    and now, in his arms
    she can see forever

    he is thinking how foolish
    he had been to let her
    walk away ....there had
    to have been one more
    word to make her stay

    but they don't speak now
    they can't
    the moment is too
    beautiful, too precious
    this time is the
    sweet culmination
    the orgasmic realization
    of all the words they've
    ever written

    she shivers as he combs
    his fingers through her hair
    tears seal their eyes closed
    as they hold on to their LIFE

    he could stay this way
    for eternity
    & she has found her way
    back home

    and there they lay, basking...
    so open to discover
    how best friends turn
    into the very best of lovers

    fully engulfed in the afterglow
    they ignited 30 years ago

    Uhmmmmm! See you doing it again!!!!

    OOps! you peeking into my soul again. From the "Email that Cried", it cannot be denied..."It has been written that if the names of those we love is written upon our hearts will remember them"! So feel it and flow with it all they have found it!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    Alyce, Alyce, Alyce...

    As always, you keep me on edge as I read each line. Mine's is a poetic experience of a "different kind" each time I read one of your works and this poem is surely, surely, no different. Yep, yep, yep...when Alyce has posted, we know it's on.

    Having been married for 23 years myself...you know I love this one gurl.

    Your sista in poetry...Joyce
