Poem -

The Woman Under Your Spell

The Woman Under Your Spell

I looked for unicorns, when myths were long repressed
I believed in fairy tales, where love felt obsessed
The splashing stream of dreams flowed swiftly south, away
Even as I played in its fountain spray’s array

I could almost feel the exchange of forever
As the winsome wind of romance danced, quite clever
It held back the breathless breeze of consummation
Taunting me, without my heart’s consideration

Help me let go, so I will know love’s safest place
Where the past can’t berate me in trust’s sacred space
Careful, if you desire to hold me intimately
Once sensually shaken, I’m stirred infinitely

A wild whirlwind affair implores us to explore
The cause for staccato applause, implying more
Yet, I am shy, and so scared to lay myself bare
Afraid of the vulnerability found there

If you love me, provide the kiss of telling taste
Break me out of my insecurity’s time of waste
Bring close the stream of dreams, unicorns, fairy tales
And a chance to be the woman under your spell

Wow, Cheerie, 
I think that's my new favorite poem of all time. That is gorgeously written. 
That should be published. It's beautiful, it shows your heart, and devotion, and sweet, gentle soul('I looked for unicorns, when myths were long repressed
I believed in fairy tales, where love felt obsessed' and 'Yet, I am shy, and so scared to lay myself bare Afraid of the vulnerability found there'). I just love those lines, but sometimes I don't understand how people who are so incredible could be reticent. If someone knows you, they see perfection. It has sensuality('Careful, if you desire to hold me intimately
Once sensually shaken, I’m stirred infinitely') oh my g*sh. And I absolutely love that ending!('Bring close the stream of dreams, unicorns, fairy tales
And a chance to be the woman under your spell'). 
That's a beautiful poem, Cherie. New fave. 
Love and hugs, 
Matthew.

Hello Matthew!  Really?  You are being serious that this poem may be your favorite poem of all time by me?  I like that you liked my line - "once sensually shaken, I'm stirred infinitely"....because I felt good about that line in particular when I wrote it....I am a passionate person, and those kind of intimate experiences are the best.  I will always appreciate the romantic fantasy aspects of love and want to believe in that kind of magical spell.  I am so happy you found it beautiful...Thank you, Matthew.  Love n Hugs, xo

Hi Cherie, I find this sad and yet...hopeful. The subject here admitting deep love and yearning but also showing strength and no longer willing to accept compromises. Give me all...or let me get used to nothing...at least that is what it says to me. Lovely work xxx

Hi Marion.  Thank you....You got the gist of this very well.  I think there is such a disconcerting feeling when you don't know where you belong....needing validation of love...and to have hope.  Love should be an all in thing.  Thank you for your discerning comments. ox Love n Hugs

Hi Rchard....Thank you.  Love always needs expression and to know affections are returned and validated.....in order to fully surrender into that spell of intoxication that love can offer when all aspects are right.....with no compromises so that yearning is not without its merits....I like to express what love wants to say from my own heart.  Thanks Richard.  xo ;)

My Dear cherie,

This love you claim entices me
I'm "The Woman Under Your Spell"
But before we can share intimacy 
These things you must me tell

.
Is your love to last forever
Can I trust you with my life
Do you see it in the future
That some day I'll be your wife

All my love,
Larry xxx

I love your verses, Larry!  Thank you!  Yes!  In order to have a very intimate relationship with someone, you must first have trust and deal with insecurities.  I just love to write love poems with different perspectives of how one feels when touched by love....and you always never cease to amaze me with your awesome verses that coincide well with my poem.  Thank you.  xo Love n Hugs
