~ the essence that is Us …

-----------~**~---------------------------------------------------


I love You

more with every breath I take,

feel your pulsing

with each heartbeat

of my own …


no greater love

was ever known,

nor sweeter seeds of love

yet sown.


Ask not

how it is possible,


but …


give grateful thanks

for knowing what

is meant to be


 at last

came true for You and Me.


In the moment ...

God touched us one to one ~**~

mind to mind - heart to heart,

soul to soul - body to body,

We knew,

and our universe spun

to our own tune.


The stars

all came aligned,

as soft winds began to gently blow

across the sea,

o’er mountain crests,

through verdant grass and dancing trees,

carrier of ~

our warm embraces, sweet sensual dreams,

oh, such ardent, sating screams,

touched to fire, freed desire

like nothing else before.


Inside that breeze

on bended knees

we embraced;

ever since

a world came into view …

within our own.


We could not

let go as …

a joy like ne’er known

took hold.


Like children

in first love

we embraced;

yet, could not get our fill …

the kind

meant for new lovers

swam our veins,

engulfed me

into your heat,

our throbbing beat

soared o’er me and through

every fiber filled with You,

on unto this day.


Hungered and dreamt,

where

there exist no bounds

we cannot,

will not explore,

nor words we will not say …


We’ve said them all;

yet, ever more remain

that strive and yearn …

aye, ache in equal burn

~ the essence that is Us …

Author's Note

Richard 🍃
One pulled from the Archives:
Yeah, I know, it's older and sappy, simple and basically worded … probably, too long, but thought some of you romantics might enjoy a look at it.

Honest, open, well-meant critique is preferred. : )

You say is simple....the simplicity is what got me reading until the end without even feeling how long...actually, I looked for the next line. Yet, it is not so simple ;-) The naturally spoken words from the heart in the most beautiful language of love, tender, sweet and romantic, touch me.
"Likes children
in first love
we embraced;
yet, could not get our fill …"
Most wonderful dear Richard. I felt like in the 1800s....and I cant explain why. :-)

A truly lovely Free Verse. Wonderfully expressed and easy flowing. I like the use of occasional ryhmes. Not too long at all... some thoughts need just a little more time to be complete. In my opinion...this could just keep on going...

never long when the heart whispers freely, nor ever sappy when true emotions take the lead of the words, of each breath and heartbeat, each dream and desire. again such sincerity through Your words, the gorgeous ethereal expressions, leave us with a certain sad warmth. the yearning that is trying to escape the page, find a way... ways... to be expressed, to fly and soar... that gentleness that hurts us inside, speaking to our inner a language only the hearts can read.
