the nearness of you

the nearness of you

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


the nearness of you

 

 

approximate lips

navigate toward connection

the angle of love

Beautiful chemistry when there's that strong passionate connection there seems to be a magnetic pull because you want to kiss and hold them ever so gentle, nicely penned.

A physiological exchange of passion – neatly encapsulated in a short write – excellent! :-)

Osculatory contact
Requires precision
But then finally hits gold.

We all aim for it Jacob.

nothing like a good kiss....to me it is the most intimate thing.
thanks Dale.

going fishing this morning with a buddy who hates fishing. But I sense that he needed someone to talk to since his wife left. Love, like listening is that old school opsimathy that wisdom searches out from the soul of others. In high school when Shirl stuck her tongue down my throat in the school gymnasium, it was mostly misdirected as young love is. But somehow our lips found each others in the dark with nothing but our pubescent passion for navigation. All I can san is, keep holding on to the lore of culture my friend, because we will all eventually find ourselves having to love one another sooner than later...

great poem....dana

trajectories XD it's hit or miss. Love this , for some reason in makes me think of when babies hug or kiss how the aim might not be practiced and you might get slobber in the eye, lol.

Not sure I detect romance as it is rarely approximate. Perhaps unrequited Jacob? A definite thinker for me.

With its inbuilt compass and sensors it navigates surely towards its treasured goal...so cleverly said Mr. Jacob.
