    hold me unspoken and silent
    against the part of you only my balm can soothe
    that spot right there you keep hidden
    from women who need you
    to shape shift into a podded thing they can love

    let me touch you there quiet and reserved
    that spot where your heart cries out to feel fully healed
    where your love waters a field no one has tilled before
    let my love toil there growing you peace not pain


    let my thoughts caress you still and unassuming
    that spot where i can fill up your cup of desire
    letting you drink until your thirst is quenched
    kissing the love dripping down your chin

    to you i dedicate a true love
    knowing you are who you are
    pledging to care for your heart
    never asking you to change

    destiny standing by fate

    Dear heart baller,

    This isn't the first time you've opened your umbrella of caring to cover my head when it was storming. Right now my heart is closed for repairs and restoration. The NO VACANCY sign is on (Well, the "O" is burnt out" but...) When the restoration is complete... I will erect a shrine in a special place in my heart and keep an eternal flame lit for you, my friend. Thank you. I am honored (smile) Peace be with you.

    Honestly, my heart went silent reading this...so much reverence for the art of love.

    This is phenomenal. That silent knowing.
    It's such a gift to put this to words....Impressive write.

    Brother Poet abstract219,

    Honestly, I am more impressed with your comment than I am my own poem. (smile) Thank you kindly, sir.

    Thank you, TotalView....(not totally into self-promotion here, but I do have some works posted at Destee. Would love to read your take on them.)

    Peace.
