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. :)

Thank you so very much DarkRainbowPie. I appreciate your kindness.
For me this wonderful poem is a romantic victory, as if patience has won a longed for desire, where even the simple '.. hot cup of coffee on a frigid Winter day. ' is the winner's ultimate and glorious prize.

I couldn't help but smile your last four words..'felt like applauding!

(The music is appropriately fantastic)

Of course i will.
For me, this whole poem revolves around these two lines: "she is a poem waiting to be read," and "She is what love is…" The music sets the scene so perfectly and the words bring it alive.

Great imagery: "the rain falling like diamond tear drops"

I always love your poetry. And, some of your lines are so timeless as to be all but iconic.
Now this is some steamy and classy writing Will, just what is needed on these cold nights. Gotta love a woman in red heels ;p
That video - the guys solo blows the mind. He like a snake charmer ... wow

Thanks you so much Anto.
I think someone just turned the heat up!
It's kind of hot in here.
With that music it does kind of have that Dick Tracy feel that Benita mentioned.
Very nice Will. Loved it.

Thanks so much Al. I understand what you are saying. I appreciate you stopping by.
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




Wow I love this was stunning and so romantic
made me think of dick Tracy and the 50's and 60's
how they dressed.

The music and poem went hand in hand
like 2 lovers that never want to part.



I am not a city girl but is it very beautiful at night
I just hate the loud nose that is why.


I like more of the calm peacefulness not the loud city
but we are north of Atlanta Georgia here this is north Georgia USA
where we are at but it is
much more calmer and peaceful here in Acworth Georgia .



Thank you for sharing very inspiring piece.



God bless. Benita
