    Poem Commentary

    the power of love - not to be too cliche


    touch me again with your fingertips
    paint your love letter into my skin
    let your soul sigh my name, set my heart aflame
    then tell me you love me again
    the sea of your blue eyes beckons
    I find myself held in their depths
    let me not be afraid to let go of my pain
    and the shame of the tears I have wept
    cover me like spring sunshine
    melt my hard winter away
    no more snow, nor cold wind blow
    you are my most perfect day
    let our laughter write the harmony
    to smooth the roughest sea
    and glory in love, abandoned
    to the joy that is you and me
    let the stars witness in wonder
    a sight uncommonly rare
    as night cloaks the sky, I contented, sigh
    in your arms sleeping safe from despair
    so work in my heart your magic
    weave spells that both heal and bind
    the truth of you is now shining through
    I am yours as you are mine
    forever can live in one moment
    lost destiny finally calling
    hopes and dreams, come true, it seems
    all I am has completely fallen

    I just hope that the person this is intended for really grasps the emotion, beauty and love coming off this page. This poem is to be both experienced and appreciated. I love your work and your range as a poet. TEN



    Thank you. I haven't been around lately so I'm just now seeing this. He got it :). So I've been busy being happy :)

    Such a drastic turn around from your previous writing and a beautifully written love poem if ever i've read one! Excellent!



    thanks Bear :) very much!

    Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
