    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.:)

    Baller, a response that so eloquently answers the Question asked.

    "Does he love me this way, too....?'

    You've brought out a smile, a blush and all the words necessary to
    let a woman know she's loved......as only a gifted poet can do, thank you.
    I am astounded at your writing skillz...

    A Masterpiece in the rapture of love....ab(soul)utly graceful....I love it.:toast:

    Flow on...

    When we truly love, and then attempt to explain in, yes, we have to delve in deep, and even then we find the words to be wanting. Such an in depth expression of that...whew.
