Only you...

by Michael   Jul 25, 2017

...waking up, with....

...would, at times
still be..
sleeping; so peacefully.

enthralled; I would just look; studying your beauty;
your attraction; consumed me; with my appetite, never
losing; your flavour.

your charisma; extraordinary, which overwhelmed
me; seducing my mind; your intuition; would
make love to me...

..without even touching...

...well, maybe, my instinct; a little.

Our one; to one; times; when we would listen to...

...The Platters....... ‘Only you’

But, just before; we would
dance; you would stand; Before me; so eager..
..was I, hold you; embrace your charming;
felinity, but,
I would relish; the virtue; of
waiting; patiently...; would..


hold my face with your hands; palms nourished
with a scent; of camomile; releasing subtle; aromas
of spring

..and then..

..drawing me; closer,

you kissed me; with a velvety; softness;
like-that of; a petal; plucked from a fresh lily; your lips; a taste,
of summer...

...which blossomed..
..the seeds of love; you planted.. my heart.

    I was thinking about the layout of this poem. The way you
    have broken up the lines leaving behind it dots of trails...
    this felt as if the writer has many feelings and thoughts and whilst
    thinking penning these emotions down. The passion surly is alive
    within the lines and it grabs me as a reader because of its slow and
    sensual pace...lovely!
