My Desire Burns as an Anomaly

My Desire Burns as an Anomaly

My desire burns as an anomaly
The mystery that drives the heart of me
Expectations and wishes rise and fall
But the drive inside bears love's all

With impetuous display beyond understanding
I  tremble from touch, abrupt, demanding  
Clinging to the sensuality of you
The all encompassing of one from two

A deviation from the past I've known
An obsession, a skill, to build and hone
I  crave your pleasure's raw intensity  
A natural high of spiritual propensity

Consumed by images of bedroom retreat
I view our contorted poses within silky sheets
I see it clearly, and nearly collapse from need
Yes, my desire burns as an anomaly

Hi Rose...lol...I hope Tony understands the intent behind it, as he lives with me and knows my passionate nature....definitely a part of me and comes out in my writing time to time....I used to do many romantic writes, then deterred from them for awhile...but I will always find them my favorite genre.  I appreciate your support so much.  Bless you. xo :)

My Dear Cherie,

I have waited my whole lifetime
For my amourous dreams to come true
Finally, it has happened
With the beautiful anomaly of you

Love,
Larry xxx

Awww....That is sweet and accurate!  There was a time in my life where I did not connect well with passionate feelings because of a rape that happened to me as a child...but once I overcame those intrusive feelings, I appreciated the gift of sensuality and desire....not seeing them as dirty like I did as a girl..I really love the beauty of passionate feelings that are consummated...It takes the right person to bring them out to their full potential....lol  Love n Hugs, xo

Beautifully written. I really loved this piece. I could feel the passion within it. It's awesome to see such talent. I really don't take enough time to read other people's work when i should. I feel like a bit of a recluse in the writers world sometimes. And that doesn't have to be the case. But very well done, my friend :) I shall certainly be reading more.

Hi Benjamin.  It means so much to me for you to explain how you do not take time to read other's work, but did today to read mine, so that makes me feel good.  I am so happy you liked it....I enjoy passionate writes.  I am on vacation right now, and really did not expect to even be on Cosmo at all, but when I checked my email for the day and saw your comment, I just had to respond.  Thank you so much!  I am behind on Cosmo with my reading and commenting for sure!  I have been so busy, but I appreciate every comment and do enjoy reading other's work..including yours...Bless you.  ;) xo

You know, maybe I am too young to be here. I just... I guess I'm different from a lot of the people my age around me. I don;t feel... Passion so much as I do love. There is a difference. Lust and Passion walk hand in hand, and yet... Maybe it's just who I am, but I don;t see... ANYONE that way. I'm glad for that too. I can make friends who are girls without them feeling uncomfortable around me, and I know that when I do feel something for someone, I'm not just thinking between my legs. I guess that's okay... If that's how everyone else in my age group operates, drifting from one bed to another, I think I can safely say I'm good where I am, though... My attitude had definitely turned away some people who thought they'd be into me. I guess It's just give and take.

 anyway, great write, though, I will admit, Just when I thought I could safely read your posts in school, You spring this on me... *Silently fuming* I nearly fell out of my stool when I saw THIS pop up on my screen. I've been too terrified to read until now, when everyone is in bed, and my door is closed, and locked. Seriously, Cherie, will there ever be a day I can look at my 'Followed Content' Page without having to close the window?

 Joking Aside, it's lovely, Cherie, you wrote well. I can tell you and Tony do have fun... ; )

Hey D....Lol...Yes, you are too young to read this....JK....but with all honesty I am proud of you at your age for being so mature and understanding the difference between love and lust.....Passion does not necessarily mean lust, it is an intense emotional response to LOVE in a marriage that is healthy and natural, and not sinful.  I did not relate to passionate feelings well at all growing up because of being raped as a girl...It took me a very long time to learn how to relate to my feelings.  Now, I find passion a very wonderful gift to experience.  Love is a complex emotion, and expressed in many different ways in its various forms.  I think friendship at the heart of love makes for the best relationships....and when respect and admiration are there, then the passion can come uninhibited.  That is why I do not think teenagers are ready to experience sexual relationships yet...They are acting on impulses and urges, and lust can confuse....but love is what connects all the dots and in a mature relationship it becomes its own entity to allow passion to bond in a beautiful all encompassing way to bond....One day D...you may just understand...but for now, as a mother of teenagers, I am glad you have control over your emotions.....and focus on the simpler, foundations that last and keep thoughts pure.  You have plenty of time...lol  I am passionate by nature...and I do not mean to make you embarrassed by my more passionate writes.  xo ;)
