Love Letters: Part 2


I shall always stay awake for you.

You are the vine that never withers.

Bathing with you in a waterfall of light.

Together on a peak,
Wonders never cease.

You are the freshness of a forest glade,
You are the lightness lighting the dawn.

Floating in the clutch of your embrace.

Knowing you are mine is what connects me to the divine.

Do not despair
What is to come
Love shall bear.

The sadness won’t last,
There are days to fill.
Strengthened in love’s flow,
The touch and the thrill. 

You teach me the way of enchantment. For this, my gratitude is infinite.

Forgive me if I make some notes – I need to make sense of your glittering speech.

You fall into my palm like a gift from nature.

I love the way you smile – it’s a beacon that glows for miles and miles.

Morning
Afternoon
Evening
Night
Every hour
Enchanted
Alight.

It’s all in the give and take
The devotion we create;
It’s all in the little things,
Wherein gratitude sings.

You are the sun that never sets
You are the moon that always glows
You are the wind that sings and sings
You are the earth kissed with joy.

There is nothing that can extinguish the light you emit.

There you are
Here I am
Amour flows
Hand to hand.

How can I express my affection?
With words, tears, gestures –
Blissful connection.

I want to take you to a place
Where the air casts
A shimmering spell,
Music hums with
Limpid abandon,
And intimacy flowers
In the shedding of words.

Falling
         Falling
                 Falling.

Sweeter than all the flowers in the world is inhaling the fragrance of you.

Let’s make music with our bodies.

Whatever you crave,  I will give.

Such sprightly bedfellows: connection and affection.

How can I succumb to fear as long as you appear?

Walking together,
Fresh horizons on the rise;
Sun-kissed,
             Vows stressed,
Blessed.

Surprised
            Tenderised
                         Mesmerised.

It’s never too late to inscribe on our hearts what we have hitherto suppressed.

Waking with you
The world aglow 
Expectant delight.

What life-affirming radiance you emit!

I wonder if you think of me when I think of you, and, if you do, what wonders swim into view.

Your name is a charm I wear in my heart.

Rest awhile and simply smile.

Enthralled by the infectious vivacity you exude.

I don’t think of you much – except on days ending with “y”.

Can we resist the irresistible sweetness  of desire?

Let’s not descend into dust before we have expressed what it is we must.

If you were a map, I would never stop reading you.

Did I ever mention how you fill me with ecstasy?

When I can’t see you,  what keeps me eager is your twinkling luminescence.

If I could bottle you, my happiness would be infinite.

I am all yours
For now
And evermore.

True love hath no ending; it is a channel eternally replenished by the cleansing dew of amity and desire.

Your voice is an instrument that heartens  my soul.

When all is said and done, I remain grateful for love lost and won.

Words flow heart to heart,
Softly-sprung, wonders start.

All that concerns me is your happiness.

Are you singing the same song as me?

Oh to be with you – naked, unadorned – living in joyful simplicity.

What is there to talk about except everything?

Between you and me
Marvels bloom
And sparkle…

We Only Have The One Life #2


We only have the one life,
Why the fever and the fret?
When our duty is to love
And kiss before sorrows set.

We only have the one life
To touch and explore and dream;
Body revealed, mind-lamps lit,
Tanned in the unceasing gleam.

We only have the one life
To get naked in the sun,
Shorn of gaudy dress,
Hardened shells undone.

We only have the one life
To breathe and think and fuck;
Goodness within our grasp,
Riches won, wonderstruck.

We only have the one life,
So no need to drown and frown;
Joy is there to be savoured,
If wanting looks up not down.

Vignette

Two spirits, snapped in time.
Laughter flowing; currents alive.
Souls rhyming with sweet accord.
Sorrows unlived, joy to be caught.
Always joy to be caught.

Two bodies breathing fire;
Leaning together,
Drawn by a hungry force.
Awakened to gratitude,
The flush of hopefulness.

Two minds in unison,
Discoursing with wild abandon.
Hours unable to wither
This picture of contentment;
A canvas of light.

Éclat

I love you for

Your éclat and élan,

Your sparkle and splendour,

Your panache and pizzazz.

I love you for

Your words and wit,

Your sorrow and surprise,

Your voice and uplift.

I love you for

Your beauty and more.

What makes me happy?
Knowing that you are there.
That you exist, a free spirit
Over the horizon, gilded in light.

What makes me happy?
Dreaming of the day we shall dance,
Enmeshed like the trees’ branches
Frolicking in the breeze.

What makes me happy?
A word. A smile.Your flighty mind.
Alive to wonder, brimful and bountiful,
Industrious as a bee.

What makes me happy?
The thought of us by the sea
Making love without a care,
Cries hungry as the waves.

What makes me happy?
A bottle of red open for two,
Glasses kissed in moonlight,
The endless stream of laughter.

What makes me happy?
The whispering skin to skin,
Undressed of our public selves,
The love deep within.

What makes me happy?
The knowledge that you came,
Answering the heart’s tender call,
Soothing all pain out of sight.

What makes me happy?
You, dancing so free.

Even When I Stumble

Even when I stumble
Through the shrouded murk,
This heart flowers.
Seizing verdant laughter,
What gifts you possess.

Touch

You come to me in dreams,
a light that always gleams;
On every path I walk,
ensorcelled by your talk.

You come to me in mind,
a spell that gushes kind;
Greening my arid heart,
from touch do fountains start.

You come to me in need,
stating a sacred creed;
I read what you convey,
a beacon come what may.
