Like A Thief In The Night

Like A Thief In The Night

A Poem by Luissanto
"

Written by Louis Saint Verges

"

Like a thief in the night

She stole my soul

She filled my heart

and made me whole

She touched me in ways

I cannot describe

We made love with our souls

We made love with our eyes

The warmth of her body

lying next to me

broke the chains of my bondage

and set me free

I never knew love

or how to feel

till she laid in my arms

and showed me what's real

for years I was empty

for years I was alone

with no one to love

or call my own

now she is here

and my heart she does own

no more reason to wander

because my heart

has a home

What a heartfelt, moving, lovely tribute to the one who has captured your heart, lifted your soul, and completed your world.. In the midst of the darkness, the despair, the cold empty loneliness, the bright light of a healing spirit can feel like such salvation.. It can remind us what it feels like to live again.. To breathe fully, to FEEL deeply, to want to wake up every morning just to see their smile, get lost in the comfort of their embrace, and to experience what life can truly be like with someone we love by our side.. IT can make those broken pieces feel like they fit again, like we are once again whole and have purpose... Sometimes it does happen like a "thief in the night" when we least expect it from somewhere we never thought to look... This is truly one of life's surprises that shouldn't be questioned--just cherished like the blessing it is... You have captured this beautifully here.. It flowed like the whispers of angels into the heart and lets it fly away on the wings of love... very nicely done sir... :)

Thank You for sharing such beautiful words...
What an eloquent confession of true compassion. The shortness of the lines speaks volumes to me jagged like a sudden drop into a compassionate love affair. The repetition in places adds a kind of sense of requirement addiction and what a wonderful one to have, an honest and pure addiction to the way that special person fills your heart.

"We made love with our souls, we made love with our eyes"
A gentle and heartwarming whisper reads your words allowed in my head, glorious, gerougus i loved it.

I can totally see this becoming a song, it flows so easily and naturally, and it's close to each reader's emotions, God knows each one of us felt like this at least once,
I loved this poem very much :)

Thank You for your beautiful words, they honor me...
I really enjoyed the rhyming. It was subtle and fit the poem very nicely. I also like the flow of the poem, starting from the comparison to a thief all the way to your heart finding a home. The message has a lot of layers to it (not quite the right way to describe what I'm trying to say but I can't think of the right words right now) and I think it's very well done.
