Everlasting Isn't Forever

Everlasting Isn't Forever

Reserved feelings engulf her,

and keeps the bond of love at arms length.

She tells herself she's not in it forever,

that love is never everlasting.

BUT.......

 

Turquoise eyes are mesmerising.

Affectionate compassion saturates her yearning body,

and leaves it aching for his kissable lips.

Strong arms hold a loving incalescent touch,

locking her heart to his.

 

Soft spoken words are like lyrics,

tuning her spirit and filling her with awe.

Breath upon her cheek feel captivating,

casting an amorous spell.

 

Masculine scented body awakens her.

Soft murmur of his voice spreads moister

between her legs.

His succulent tongue taunts bare skin,

making it hard to walk away.

 

Adoration fills her longing heart,

and what she feels for him is so profound.

Amativeness racks her body,

and she nearly gives in to desire.

 

BUT.....

 

Previous relationships

Broken

                            Destroyed

          Painful

                   Brutal

Enlightens her understanding of love.

 

She tells herself she's not in it forever,

that love is never everlasting.

Hurt can lead us to act guarded like this. It's the old leap of faith debate... ;)

Thanks!
Yes I learned this the hard way, I applaude those who last 20 yrs or more, very few have that, it is a blessing, but reality for most is..never everlasting

Wonderfully done my friend!

I am trying to think of what to write...this really touched me as I realized my feelings are much the same...when you find love, the kind that burns into your soul, hoping it grows and grows trusting your mate only to then be crushed...it brings about a darkness...my poetry changed dramatically after I was crushed...the weight so heavy it felt as if my chest would cave...but through it my writing has also become much more real and that is something I'm grateful for...

love...I so wish it were or that it might...that it was mine...only this time right!

Live for each day let the love flow naturally filling your entire being with it's warmth and if you both want it bad enough then forever will be too short a time to enjoy it. Though as you say in these times too few try and find it easier to walk away from something beautiful. Love the emotional depth, keep em' coming

We'd like to think that love lasts forever, but only some of it does, of course. This one is poignant, racy and romantic.

Sadly beautiful, a great on a broken heart...

What a sadness that I felt, and the title alone brought on the stage of sorrow.. How your words made me wish there were more forevers...

Now this really made me feel!
Such power behind these words, made me really feel them...such emotion that has moved me!

This is heartbreaking, wanting, needing love and afraid of love. Awesome poem!
