The Truth Your Eyes Deliver

The Truth Your Eyes Deliver

Morning approaches with soft, natural light 
Like every day, on cue with expectation
Yet the difference in its effect on me today - is you
In the way you stand by the bedroom window
Facing its welcoming caressive glow  
Allowing your eyes to reflect its warm glint 
A casting glimmer of breathlessness
Shadows cling close along the contours of your face
Showcasing your best features
The chiseled cheeks I love to touch
The charming chin below your mischievous grin
My emotions get the best of me 
Overflowing with obsessive adoration  
With the instinct to run to you in need
With desire to touch the object of my affection 
Yet, I stay completely still, lost in the scene
Observing your masculinity's silent seduction
I am jealous of the dawn's lucky chance 
To kiss your lips first with sunlit sensuality
I trace down along your silhouette to admire
Your mesmerizing morning erection
Then I wait, aroused, feigning patience
Watching your eyes pan the painted sky outside
As if they are searching for something out there
Perhaps, the elusive secret that starts your day
I wait, and wait, and wait some more
Until the mystery almost kills me
Finally, your eyes slowly sweep across the room
Swallowing me whole in their enticing grip
An expression holding sunlight's power within them
Silently, they seductively speak, 
"Come hither, my love." 
And in that moment, I am made whole
Feeling such sweet unrestrained shivers
From the truth your eyes deliver...........
I am loved!

Hi Lisa....Thank you so much!  I was very personally and emotionally inspired and then engrossed with how to express that in my wording of this...I hope that it comes across as very intimate.....I am very sentimental about love and it makes it a prevalent theme in my poetry.  This poem is close in my heart, and my favorite poem I have written this year I believe. I am so happy you found it beautiful....Yay!  Bless you. xo ;)  Love n Hugs

Oh wow, T!  You are going to make me cry!  I could not wait for you to read this poem because I was so emotionally charged when I wrote it.....I hoped you felt my heart. I am very sentimental about what I observe about you in our every day life....You are an inspiration that cannot help but be a part of my writing...Romance is a state of mind...and since I think of you all the time, it is a constant motivation. Thank you for being that continual presence that makes me want to write and express my feelings....I love you!  xo Kisses   Your devoted wife, C xo

My Dear Cherie,

"Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder"
An old aphorism often said
But when mine meet yours, they speak to me
As I lay here in our bed

.
They say you love me truly
With their penetrating stare
As the sunlight bathes your body
Standing manly, and all bared

.
"Come to me my Angel"
Your words bring chills upon my spine
I melt into your sweet embrace
Then I am yours, and you are mine

All my love,
Larry xxx

Hi dear Larry....Your verses in response feel so romantic and capture the essence I had hoped to write in mine.....lol  When you love someone, you cannot help but to study them and want to remember the way they look at you ....that special unique way they validate who you are to them.  I loved writing this poem...a special one as it captures a memory I wanted to save.  Thank you for always understanding the heart of me.  Love n Hugs, xo ;)
