The Unbearable Lightness of Being

And as she stands there,
Her eyes clear with the beauty that lies within;
I am overcome with the ardour that rises within me,
Dragging me onward.
The touch of her smile upon my soul
Beckons my heart to swell with love,
And l am caught...tangled within the web of my desire.

She stands before me,
Resplendent in all things.
The burning embers
Within me ignite and
The flames of my desire
Rage hotly beneath the surface.
Wanting and needing her,
My passion rising to a fevered pitch.
images of our bodies in unison;
Sounds filling the dense air enveloping us.
Love's sweet scent filling my mind
Making my body yearn for more.
Her touch makes me tremble,
Tearing down my barriers,
Allowing her to embrace
And caress my very soul.
But I am not blind to the realities
Of my disconcerted mind.
Fearing to even reach out
And share my truth,
Our dreams lie scattered on
The barren wasteland of
My craven heart.

Who can say what's in my heart?
The purity was from the start
Inside my head, inside my soul.
With you I am complete and whole.
Never doubt my love for thee
Embrace my heart and set me free.

Untitled 4

Love is like the music of a lyre:
Crafted with care, the lyrics
Melodious and exotic;
Patiently savored and enjoyed
With understanding
In a world gone mad with cold noise
And empty promises.
