    Seems so simple but
    don't know if it will ever be
    it doesn't cost a dime
    cause the best things in life are free
    Might not know it if it wore combat
    boots and kicked me in the rear :lol:
    but it would be nice, if it at least
    played peekaboo to let me know it's here
    More fragrant than honey suckle
    on a blustery day in May
    Better appreciated than any compliment
    that you might be inclined to pay
    Brighter than the luster of that pot
    of gold found at the end of your rainbow
    More melodic than that soothing quiet
    storm streaming nightly from the radio
    Greater intimacy than a mutual mind orgasm
    given by two life partners spontaneously
    More hypnotic than any love poem
    one can read here at Destee :wink:
    I'm struggling to express this
    But ya'll don't hear me though
    So I'll just spell it out for ya
    L lasting
    O omnipotent
    V vivid
    E essences

    Let's put the writing on the walls...
    You have such a flare about what you write that it always captures the attention of us all...I really enjoyed this one. :)

    isn't it amazing...
    "It" has so many qualities...yet
    we often fail to recognize it
    when it's staring us in the face...
    you have to laugh...
    because we are always in
    search of it...like the holy grail..
    it's so mind blowing...
    mind boggling...
    and yet...so vague
    there is nothing quite as amazing
    as *Love*...

    but sister you might wanna take a look around...those combat boots can hurt :wink:

    Awww, thank you queentswana, that was such a nice compliment.
    Sage, I guess we're afraid of reading the signs incorrectly, but when we find it, and it finds us, what a connection. Thank you for responding so, and yea, those boots can be brutal...lol.
