Does He Love Me This Way, Too?

Magical questions sing gentle rhapsodies
Of where we’re at

Hmmm…

How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways.

Counting the ways of love
Isn’t the ways I know
(But) I love you
Just the same

Fiery passions
Igniting consequential flames of
Dormant pleasures
(After) summer’s rain showers
Leave wilting flowers
Blooming

After-hour relationships of
“Between the sheet” SIPS of
Hot-buttered fantasies
Got me trying to see
Where you and I are supposed to be
(given the possibilities)

BUT…how silly of me.

FROM THE BEGINNING…

Does he love me this way, too?

NO…
“I love you” MORE
Than the traditional
EUPHEMISMS
That speaks to the one dimensionality
…the “Devoid of depth” personality
I cannot allow to be
Associated with me

When speaking from my heart
I’ve come to see (that)
Pleasure, like anger
Is only a surface dweller
Of this
“How much do I love thee” saga
That no one bothers
To write about
Anymore

SO…
Shall I dismiss this
Beauty…I’ve found
In Dolby digital surround sound
That goes deeper than the
Acoustic reverberations
That once dug deep
Into my soul

(But only scratched the surface)

High definition is my “ism”
For today’s “ultra violet living” condition
That defines worth in our world

When my passion screams
“I LOVE YOU”
Though, true
That three-word concept
Seems inept
When considering the magnitude
Of my LOVE
And the embodiment
Of my YOU

But barring a full-bodied phrase
That displays the depths of my
Emotional HIGHways
Coupled with
The strengths of my soul
I’m told

“I love you”

Is the best I can do
When expressing the totality
Of my feelings for you

MY MOST FERVENT
APOLOGIES

Excuse me, please
For being so bold as to preSUME
My love for you would be retold in huts and homes
In melodic songs
Across foreign lands

Please…Understand

My need to APOLOGIZE
For thinking forever was a long time
Coz
Anytime
I’m not with you
My heart sings the blues

And,
Please!
Forgive the words I choose
In expressing my excitement at loving you
Coz “I love you”is less than I wanted to use
But, even though it’s true
It’s hard for my HEART
To reconcile with my SOUL
My NEED for you

I mean

What dream was I imagining
When I imagined ME loving YOU

Was it the
Spring-like summer dream
Where I dreamt a wonderfully decadent thing
‘Bout a caramel so deliciously sweet
It defied description

Where the inscription reads: I LOVE YOU

Again…
I apologize
Most profusely
For thinking me
GOOD and SMART enough
To maneuver around the
Deep and passionate GULF
That is your
HEART
…as if being
WISE and KIND
Would allow me to find
A pathway around your love
(Even if I wanted to)

In loving you
(Though easily said)
I follow the pathway
My heartbeat led (me)
To the gentle (stirrings)
Of a thing most NEW
Beautifully packaged
In the form of
YOU

All I’ve dreamt of
Has led me to this
…this moment of true love
And utter HAPPINESS
Punctuated by
Mental longings of sated bliss
Which translates
I LOVE YOU.

The ATTRACTION
Was a reaction to so many things
…Could not bring myself to
Detach my heart from my soul
As you stole into the depths of me
Easily
Bypassing
Safety systems
Put in place to
Protect my
Innermost feelings
From unwanted intrusion
But
The equations
Were too complex

(ME plus YOU) equals…
Subtract the remainder
(And) divide the sequel

I mean…is that legal?

Cybernetic dysfunctions
Defining the juncture of
Mind, body, and soul
In determining the output
Of heart…I’m told
“Input one” plus “Input two”
Equals “output: I LOVE YOU
Where all the variables are good and true
When I could have just told them
MY WORLD IS YOU.

I love you.:)

Dear heart baller,

I've read this piece so many times I have almost committed it to memory. It is beautiful and heartfelt. It will garner over a 1000 views, all from me. I am feeling it. (smile)
