She is a breathing book

each night I touch her pages

delicately turn to find

her heart in letters

written by her hand…

 

Scent of vanilla

soft and sensuous

unveiling another thought

another smiling memory

another intimate piece of her…

 

And I read with such abandon

across her pages

my fingers trailing

her soft paper skin…

 

In her sighs

she speaks of

stories and sonnets

history and fantasy

blue skies and silvery silks…

 

I hear her voice

in the pages

wanting to know her

every line

every word

every letter…

 

Now I take her into me

share my book with her

until we know

can read each glance

each whisper

each touch…

 

She is a book

and I love to read her pages…

"Now I take her into me
share my book with her
until we know
can read each glance
each whisper
each touch…"

Poetical Prowess!!! This was fantastic! From the subtle flow to the image at the beginning to set the mood of the piece....you crafted an intelligently phrased piece. The type so delicately thought of that i cannot help but be enthralled in the book (pun intended) :)

This is great work! A nice start to my day:)

Thank you so much KC. Will read your inspirations right now. :)
Incredible poem. "She is a breathing book"-such grace in this metaphor...eloquent language, lovely form, flow, cadence...sensuous, rapturous imagery....literal, figurative, transcendent. Kudos!

I am so thankful you came to read of her. May you find such joys in the new year, dear poet.
This is one of the best love poems I've read in a year. This is so originally stated with the book analogy well-crafted thru-out. Usually I'm not a fan of fancy fonts becuz they can be distracting & they don't always translate across all platforms, so sometimes you get garbage. But in this case, the font truly reflects the mood of the words. It feels like you've really taken your time to present this . . . in places you repeat briefly or restate in several different ways . . . it feels like a meandering walk thru the observations. And the enthusiasm in the simply-stated final couplet is superb!
