SHE IS A BOOK

She is a breathing book

each night I touch her pages

delicately turn to find

her heart in letters

written by her hand…

 

Scent of vanilla

soft and sensuous

unveiling another thought

another smiling memory

another intimate piece of her…

 

And I read with such abandon

across her pages

my fingers trailing

her soft paper skin…

 

In her sighs

she speaks of

stories and sonnets

history and fantasy

blue skies and silvery silks…

 

I hear her voice

in the pages

wanting to know her

every line

every word

every letter…

 

Now I take her into me

share my book with her

until we know

can read each glance

each whisper

each touch…

 

She is a book

and I love to read her pages…

"Now I take her into me
share my book with her
until we know
can read each glance
each whisper
each touch…"

Poetical Prowess!!! This was fantastic! From the subtle flow to the image at the beginning to set the mood of the piece....you crafted an intelligently phrased piece. The type so delicately thought of that i cannot help but be enthralled in the book (pun intended) :)

This is great work! A nice start to my day:)

welcome !!
What can I say.
This is definetly swoon-worthy.
I'd imagine any woman deserves to be read like a book.
With all the depth and desire to understand accompnied by that analogy.

This seems to be an older bit, written several years ago.
But it is pretty darn good, which makes me wonder how far has your skill trajectory gone since.
I like good poems, but I am really more of a story guy. Would love to see one of yours.

Keep up the good work my friend.

An example of one long metaphor. Filled with plenty of imagery and feels intensely intimate. The tone is almost like a whisper - at least in my mind. Beautiful work!

Beautifully expressed. Although modern ideas rooted in sensory, it also rings of Toltec wisdom.

You are really good in connecting her with a book. Making me fantasize being a book for a man. Great work, C Froman!
