    Her essence intrigues and delights me
    Sets my heart aflame
    Yet I have never heard her
    Call out my name
    I have blown every opportunity I have had
    To get to know her well
    For my emotions have me locked up tight
    Like a prisoner in a cell
    I want to know her thoughts
    Her most intimate dreams
    I want to pull down the façade to show her
    That looks are not always what they seem
    Bewitching eyes is what she has
    Cause she leaves me in a spell
    For a simple kiss upon her lips
    I would traverse the threshold of hell
    Heaven is a moments embrace
    Within her arms
    To tell you the truth it has been a while
    Since I have succumb to a woman’s charms
    Patiently and passionately I await our next encounter
    To once again feel her warm embrace
    Where I may once again feel a kiss upon her soft face
    I know that she my heart can tame
    All she need do is call out my name…

    Ooooo-whee! "You got it. You got it bad!" (lol)


    However, the emotions in this are so open, so poignant.

    ....But, like Teddy said, "It's so good lovin' somebody and somebody loves you back......and that's a fact."

    I hope she "calls out your name" soon.

    Thank you cherryblossom...it's been months now and she still hasn't called out my name...I guess the age gap is to much for her to deal with...or I am approaching her in a manner she is not used to...with strong romantic intentions...but I am a persistent man and a patient wolf...not to be confused with a dog...see a patient wolf takes his time to make sure there are no traps before approaching his prey...

    I haven't had a girlfriend in over 6 years. I have had ladies of interest that have inspired some of my works but no one muse.

    Brother Poet Nahshon,

    I was so moved by this piece, I was almost tempted to respond to it poetically. (Of course, I thought better of that idea.) Sometimes, there is so much passion and power in hearing someone call out your name. Especially when it's that right someone. Delightful read.

    (smile)

    thank you TotalView...I would have been flattered if my poem inspired you to respond poetically...I mean we are here not only for appreciation, but also for inspiration in whatever form it may take...that's why I love those poetic excercises...my last one I may expand into a full length poem not just a snippet...
