Poem -

You Said...

You Said...

You said I am beautiful, and the sun rose a bit higher today
No one can convince me it rises so bright this way
A warmth covered me like a prayer with folded wings
Holding my heart mesmerized, without rope or strings

I swear I could fly if given a blue horizon's place to dive
Your words steer my confidence with loving course to soar alive   
Say again what's aiding in healing the secret parts of my heart
You paint a new scene of love, like a long lost piece of art

If I respond with dew glistened eyes, forgive my exposure
But the sound of sincerity's kiss makes me lose composure
I may be changed forever, from one whisper's sweet eternity 
A once estranged emotion melted into sentimental certainty
 
You said I am gorgeous, now you follow me from the inside
I hear your words, knowing it is the world's view that belied 
I want to bask in your masculinity, bathe in your seductive spell
For when you said I am beautiful, you relayed it so well

(And I love you for helping me feel loved.....)

Hi Al....Lol...Thanks so much!  Just got to love LOVE!  Words are so important to hear to feel loved....to feel special and as if you have a purpose and place in someone's life.  I think we take for granted sometimes the value of really letting the people we care about know how we see them.  Thank you for your kind support. ox ;)

Dude?  Hmm.  Thank you for remembering how much words really do make an impact on how one feels about themselves, and I am like most woman out there who want to feel loved and beautiful to the one they love.  You know how sentimental I am over love, and although I know you perceive me as living in a fantasy of expectations about
romance, it is very real to me.  Thank you for saying I am talented.  I want to prove myself.  There is power in words.  Love n Hugs, xo

Wow, Cheerie, what a beautiful piece of your heart. 
That was mesmerizing. When you can feel the actual emotion, and pain, and excitement in someone's poem, it's a work of art(hey, you even said that in there! I just read it again), and I felt that in every line. 
'Dew glistened eyes'! Oh my gosh, what a beautiful line! I don't know how anyone could not call you gorgeous. 
Beautiful writing, Cheerie! 

Love, 

Matthew.

Thank you, Matthew.  I am glad you liked it.  I am honored that you found it "mesmerizing."  The feeling of being beautiful comes from hearing it from a sincere heart that has no other intention other than to express how they feel....and that to me is beautiful.  I have always been insecure and have a hard time hearing a compliment.  But I think most women want to feel beautiful to the one they love.  To hear the words can be very powerful.  You are very kind.  Bless you.  xo Love n Hugs
