    He held me
    In every way possible there is
    to be held
    For I am his
    to hold

    He held
    my attention
    His thoughts took precedence
    Only an honorable mention
    could be afforded to after thoughts

    He held
    my hand
    I touched a glimpse of his life
    and knew that he would understand
    mine

    He held my pen
    and forced the ink
    to poetically flow
    until what I began to think
    became what I know would grow
    and so

    He held me upon a pedestal
    so high, so that I could see
    the celestial sights, and infinite heights
    where love soars aimlessly

    He held me then
    so that I could realize how
    he embraces me with all that he is
    and why he still holds me, now

    Yes Watz...I agree with So'ja. This sounds deeply personal....

    And I can only place myself in your very shoes, to know how it feels to be held by a new....

    suspended in his grasp....

    :spinstar:Celestrial Heights
    .....pretty!

    Held your attention to that degree coco? Well then, I humbly thank you poetess, appreciated much.
    I suppose some pieces get sort of personal up in here. No need to be in my shoes sweet apple pie, just imagine yourself suspended in air, and you're there, thanks much.
