Tho, Many Times ~

~-··-··--··-··-··-··--··-··-~˜**˜~-··-··--··-··-··-··--··-··-~


Tho, many times I'd seen the sky

smelled, too, life's dark, rich earth,

followed a golden butterfly …

’til your love gave me birth


I did not ever really see!

A whisper my heart heard,

was my own heart whisp'ring to thee ~

yet, never spake a word.


Tho, many nights mine eyes have closed,

there’s never been a time

every poem my heart composed,

nor each word ever rhymed …


that the touch of You was not there

to guide my hand along,

in sweet and tender, loving care,

to write the perfect song.


Tho, many times through forests strolled,

I’d always been alone;

then, You made flow’rs and leaves unfold

like e’er I’d never known.


Deep in my core there stirred a glow,

set fire my every place.

Blood thawed, once cold, begin to flow;

you’d touched me with your grace.


Tho, many times dreams had been burned,

your woman found my man;

then, in my loins a passion churned,

a knowing blush began.


Your lips ‘pon mine, your captive eyes

peered in to grip my soul …

the gentle nudging of your thighs

all my resolve they stole.


Tho, many times there on your bed,

inside You, my brand burned

where every star in heaven led ~

what love is, I then learned.


Our rivers ran and merged like gold,

we filled our endless sea

with pearly cream, the taste so bold

to set our spirits free.


Tho, may times your tender flame

has set our world afire,

each time your heart whispers my name,

is all that I require ~


to get that shaking in my knees

whenever you’re around,

to make us one, sate all my pleas,

hot blood begin to pound.


Tho, many times inside my heart

You came to me in dreams,

never shall another impart

the wonders of these schemes …


and, from the moment our souls kissed

no others’ lit my flame.

What stirs within I can’t resist

when You whisper my name.


Tho, many times the sun has rose

and set, since our first day;

the moonlit nights I kissed your toes,

in sensual, loving play …


will always linger ~ calling me

unto your satin bed,

between two loving breasts I’ll be ~

there, Heaven’s blessed my head.


Tho, many times I’ve lain at night

and felt You by my side,

holding You there against me tight …

my Darling ~ my sweet Bride*


And, ever since our hearts’ first touch

deeper we knew we’d grow …

if nothing else, we know this much,

our love will always flow~*

Hello Richard, look what we have here!..one of my favorite forms :-) but lets just chat...yummy deliciousness! I don't even know where to begin! I love the way this poem is set up...right from the begining of loves' birth. This to me, really sets the mood ( and reminds me I'm reading your poetry, and to expect the tears) I love the feeling of a lover in constant thought, that every sensation is brought on by dreamings of such..star kissed lovers mingling in a midnight fantasy.Yet,for some very lucky ones dreams do come true and love will always flow! WOW what a poem..why do you think it is too long? Dang boy!..your words could just keep on flowing as far as I am concerned. Your poetry is ALWAYS like that...I never want them to end.

'.. Tho, many times thru forests strolled, ~ I’d always been alone; ~ then, You made flow’rs and leaves unfold ~ like e’er I’d never known. '

Tha really is love speaking: knowing that another person's presence makes one complete. Never selfish, never submissive. Sharing what is instinctively right. Sharing completely - at least for 99.9%% of time!

You make love seem almost out of reach floating in space.. then, in another breath, you have it kindly trapped! Thank you for sharing your dream, perhaps - and in such refined language.

Richard ~ this is another piece that breathes with a life of its own. The woman in me yearns for the love of a man who may someday feel and love me as deeply as you do about “your Bride”. I hope that you have shared your words with her so she’ll know just how loved and appreciated she is.

Thank you for sharing another gorgeous Masterpiece with us dear Richard. 🌹❤️

Blessings, 🙏

You read me well Richard. 😍
A lover fondly reminisces, reflects upon his love, in gentle, surreal, golden verses. Every verse brings forth a cascade of emotions, finally culminating in a final, eternal promise of abiding love. Dear Richard, thank you for the incomparably breathtaking poetry! 🌷❤
