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. :)

Thanks so much Rudi. I appreciate your kindness
she is yours and this is mine now, straight into my library, I felt the film noir style from the first line and i agree with Julie's review, its so great i can hear Bogart reading it in my head, the rain falling endlessly outside and the dark city streets, lights in windows of apartments Bacall waits reclined on a sofa, cigarette smoke filled rooms, Will its a delicious delight of 40s decadence in your most romantic poem yet, so very well done :)

This has to be one of the best romantic poems I've read in a long time...Will....my heart is melting....
she is a poem waiting to be read,
a song you can’t get out of your head....I wish I had written these lines...so beautiful.
This style suits you..so simple and yet so lovely...as if you have poured out your heart upon the page.
She is what love is…
....and she is mine.

Beautiful Poem. Reading this I realized one of the reasons I don't write romance. In my mind I don't put women on pedestals because don't belong there. They jump off as soon as you try. Mind you I'm not knocking your poem. Writing's a fantasy world where you can write out your feelings and desires. The thought just dawned on me is all.
