    Ode to the rapture of LOVE.....



    Je t'aime
    (I love you)
    @-)---)-

    How do I love thee~
    (a valentine joint)

    it was

    unexpected

    like a rare flower blooming
    after a morning rain
    his essence awaken
    something dormant
    a consequence of
    fiery passion

    I

    come alive
    in my soul
    my heart desires
    for more
    of his ultra rhythm
    it courses...
    over me leaving me
    incomplete
    when I can't feel him
    near me
    I've become trance
    in his zone
    the sensual precision
    in which
    he calls my name

    I must admit

    he has moved me in ways
    that stimulate my feminine
    disposition
    often
    fantasizing the possibilities
    of us engaged
    "between the sheets"
    in sweltry hot-buttered
    relations

    oh

    MMMmmmy bad....

    this is suppose to be

    a poem about~love

    So


    " I love you "
    let me count the ways


    ~un


    Je t'aime....
    in quiet thoughts of kisses
    I envision
    on a humid solstice eve
    by the magnolia tree
    on the swing
    in the dark
    tempered by the zephyr breeze

    ~deux

    Je t'aime....
    when I feel that
    sensation deep down inside
    cause, I'm missing you
    wishing I were with you
    morning,
    noon,
    &
    night
    and all the times in-between

    ~trois

    Je t'aime....
    when I smile, in the middle of the day
    as I replay funny things you say
    hoping that same smile
    inspires a smile on your face
    when you think of me
    in that special way

    ~quatre

    Je t'aime....
    when I daydream
    of you spending moments by my side
    basking in the glow of us
    as the sun begins to rise
    no need for words to define
    the look of love-struck
    in my eyes


    ~cinq

    Je t'aime....
    when I count the months,
    the days,
    the hours,
    the minutes...
    since you've come into my life

    How C I coils thee?

    like
    a sultry sing-song
    expressed before dawn
    while the moonlight
    recedes
    from my window
    I
    cry
    a
    little
    for the thrill you arouse in me

    ...then
    my mind wonders
    to a silent proposition

    .....does he love me this way, too?

    ~~​

    Poetess, you write in layers...this read like pages of love poetry. These images just conjured up such moon, June, and spoon, gee I just love him so much... feelings. Yeah, I'm a sucker for a good love poem and I definitely have to include this one in that number.

    "je t'aime" with authority...

    yet, posing that age old question: does he love me this way, too?

    allow me.:)

    Watz, a poet's greatest treasure, at least to me...is when another poet can
    relate to their words and then respond. I wanna thank you so much for your continued support and awesomely kind words, Sis.

    :pool: you knocked it out with that one. this poem is so beautiful. And isn't that just it. what feels soooo good to us still may not be what we think it is or what we crave it to be. But I say that doesn't matter either, love on.

    The language of love interpreted by its helpless victim.

    How ironic and beautiful can that be?

    Just ask Epiphany. GREAT WORK!
