When love loves me

When love loves me

A Poem by Christine Anne Shaw

I do not often speak of love
of candle light and snow white doves.
I do not speak of harps and hearts
or Cupid with his golden bow.
But what I do know is that he
my love who nightly shares my bed
and calls my name out in his sleep,
without a trace of shadowed doubt
his love is true and he loves me.

A good love is something I just feel... like the warmth from the first sip of coffee it spreads a trickle of warm sensation outwards thru my chest encompassing all it touches outwards like your lines just did to my heart in such a simple expression resonating in mine... P.S. if i saw a cupid with his golden bow i would get out my bug spray and fly swatter what horrid sight that would be, dear god!:)

Love is deep and within us all. It's the moments we sometimes hide, we crave love and affection like a drug. A very well written poem Chris.

So very welcome
This is a love poem after my own heart. I am not into romance & fluffy love poems. I love how this is reality-based & solid as a rock. I have not known this kind of love myself, but when a couple is in it, you can tell so easily. It's never a big show of external fluff. I love that you have this kind of love & I love your title (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I do not speak often of anything, really...
But if I did speak it, or heard speak of it from a trusted one...
I would not think a thing like candles or a hallmark showing of affection would be suffice for my belief to be genuine...
These notions/motions can be made on a whim...
Loyalty that stretches past the bounds of conscious/unconscious thought, however...
That is priceless and unrepeatable
No replication matches it...

This is lovely. As someone who frequently writes about love, your piece made me smile. It's definitely a nice feeling knowing that your significant other loves you back, and it certainly is beyond words to describe.
Nice one, Christine. :)
