She is what love is...

She is what love is...

A Poem by willweb
"

“The city is cold and damp, but she is the fire burning in the vest pocket of my heart” - Willweb

"

 `

 

 

The naked skyline falls into a quiet darkness,

slick sidewalks and flickering street lights bid farewell

as I enter the elevator to her loft, fifth floor

My day was long, but worth it, she makes it worth it

The hallway is silent… I knock lightly, no answer,

letting myself in, I see her through the open glass doors

 

I let her hear my footsteps…
a slow drizzle shimmers on the big city
Her perfume tempts my senses as she
peers from the balcony’s iron rail
into the vast cavern of sleeping buildings…
like a rose petal hourglass

She feels me…closer…her black dress and red heels
against the dark backdrop of
dreary skies silhouette her beauty,
she is a poem waiting to be read,
a song you can’t get out of your head
or would want to

I place my arms about her waist,
she turns, moist ruby lips infectious,
eyes hiding her story find mine,
the rain falling like diamond tear drops
decorates her cheeks as she smiles
and my heart is flooded with light

We embrace, a deep passionate kiss,
locked in haunting silence,
speaking louder than any words,
all that was cold becomes warm
as moisture seeps, dampening my skin,
and I don’t care

She is what love is…
a hot cup of coffee on a frigid winter day,
a cool breeze in the middle of August,
a beautiful delicate flower
blooming from a crack in the asphalt
on that long, endless highway of life…and she is mine

Woo...I adore this. The essence of your poem is intoxicating Will, you really get that breezy 40's vibe, oozes sensuality and the music is perfectly suited...this cinematic scene plays out so enticingly, my favorite of yours, magnifico! You gave me the quivers...took my breath away.

'vest pocket of my heart, how clever. :)

Really love this and the beautiful imagery you've brought to life. At first, I felt as though I were witnessing a scene I shouldn't be. But then as I kept reading, the imagery became more vivid, I could see those red lips and feel the rain, and finally the last paragraph, those are such grand comparisons. It flows like silken bedsheets sliding off a bed. Surely a favorite.

I am so sorry to see that you have closed your profile. I've been here since 2007 and i only did that once. Nobody noticed. So I never did it again. I will miss you.

Will, The thread of wonderful imagery running through the poem's entirety carries this along like a boat on a calmly flowing river. Mickey Spillane would have loved this write, you've done him proud. Great write, Will. take care...dan
