Tesoro

Tesoro

A Poem by Rebekah W.

What words are there to portray what is in my heart?
For the first time, words fail me.

How do you create something that has never been done?
For the first time, art fails me.

You are deserving of so much more than my whimsical mind could muster,
but perhaps I can surprise us both.

I've never been good at keeping what I find,
but please, let me surprise us both.

How can I make you feel the way you do me?
If you let me try, I swear to give it my all.

I want you to see how beautiful you are in this world,
so I swear I'll give it my all.

If I knew you would accept it,
I would pack up my heart and set it at your feet.

If I knew you would guide me,
I would pack up my life and follow your feet.

Those feet I will infinitely adore,
for they brought you running into my world.

Those feet and those legs I so cherish
for bringing you into my world.

And that chest that my head fits so perfectly on...
I can't thank it enough for holding your beating heart.

That chest that covers me deep in the night,
that holds your beautifully beating heart.

To your arms that hold me still when the world tries to sway me-
how can I express my gratitude?

To your arms that keep me warm and secure,
I could never fully show my gratitude.

Oh, to speak of your hands
that could map out my silhouette in the dark.

How I love your skillful hands
that let me hold them in the dark.

And your neck
that I can always press my lips into...

The neck that lets the world know you are mine,
that I love to press my lips into.

Yet better than mine are your lips,
that never fail to speak poetry to my soul.

The lips you tenderly use against mine,
that at night sing songs to my soul.

I could never forget your eyes,
even if fate would have me lose my sight.

My subconscious will swim in them night after night, 
for your eyes have given meaning to sight.

But to say all this is still not enough...
Even so many words still fail me.

And I could spend the entirety of my future creating,
and art would still fail me.

I only hope someday I can make you understand,
surprising us both.

Someday far away,
surprising us both.

I have searched high and low for a treasure,
and what a rare one I have found.

For many years my heart has yearned to find another,
and what a beautiful one it has found.

I pray, against all doubt, that I will be enough,
and I can reveal to you your beauty. 

I would fight any battle, Tesoro,
to prove to you your beauty.
And to thank you for sharing it with me.

The poet has honored love in a creative, and meaningful way. And I felt your form really lent itself in your piece, guiding the reader into a waterfall of words.

I think this sounds nice. You are driven a bit by strong emotion? You might want to shorted this a bit though. It appears a tad long. Otherwise, well done!
