The Twin Fire of my Soul

The Twin Fire of my Soul

I can see you, as if your gentle eyes are here before me
And my hands automatically reach out for you
In a knowing way that your fingers' clasp will bring comfort
In a dream, love's apparition gives me permission
To manifest passion's intensity, once hidden, in full view
Revealing the treasures left unmeasured in my heart
I sense the soulmate phenomenon, burning real
As I can almost feel your breath by my ear
And virtually hear whispered words you profess
I can only guess that-  "I love you" is more profound
When spoken aloud, instead of written down 
On poetry's paper with presumptuous sound
So soft, like vapor of an ethereal cloud's ascent
I have spent eternity's wake, waiting to feel your touch
To finally recognize specific eyes of the love of my life
The masculine reciprocal of my femininity's romance
In just one dance with you, I could discern truth
The magical proof of love's worthy pursuit
And I would want to stay in your safe embrace
Thanking Heaven's generous grace for our union's chance
To gaze forever into the amazing fragrant flames
Of the one I am mesmerized to behold....
The twin fire of my soul!

Thank you, T!  I think the way I view love and romance is hard for anyone to understand.  I am so sentimental over what spiritual aspect God can have between two who are meant for each other. The world has a way of corrupting what should be honored. What a huge compliment that you say that my poetry is your proof that God is Love!  Wow!  I sometimes wonder what impact I make in your life.  I am honored that you pinned this one. Love n Hugs, xo

Unbelievably beautiful, Cheerie. That's the best poem I've ever read. That's the luckiest person in the world, hands down, to know a heart so kind, and passionate, and giving and loving. I can appreciate, and understand every line in that poem, as if I wanted to write that(but didn't have as brilliant of a mind). 
You're amazing. I'm glad I met you on here. 

Love and hugs, 

Matthew.

Oh wow!  I am so touched that you think it is my best poems ever!  That is an amazing feeling to think you liked it that well.  I always know when you read one of my poems that you really understand and get the heart of me.  Thank you!  I wish you would quit putting yourself down because you are a talented writer with your own original style that I love.  I am glad to have met you too on here because  you are the best!  xo
