~ Destiny II ~

Smiling, as our glances would glimpse, knowing, as our souls would meet

Upon this plane of sphere, where time, it did not ever exist

These curtains, no longer drawn, exposing thresholds

That we both had crossed, wishful, and wantingly 

Into my arms, she then now waltzed, within her velvet, and silkened touch

Melting, into my depths her love, deep, inside of me

Silently, as I gazed into her eyes, kaleidoscopes, of cascading colors, reflecting

The endlessness, of these vast expanses of desires, longings, that we both could see

Much more than flesh, much more than barriers, much more, than life itself

Was the warmth, of her cherished breath, the essence, of her purity

Reaching, resurrecting a pulse, that I, we, should finally be

As the world stood still, and the skies became frozen

When our lips first brushed, an impassioned kiss, that would follow

The galaxies, exploding, from beneath the waters, of this now, washing sea

For no longer was she just a picture, and no longer, was she just a dream

Entwined forever, was this our spirits, as one, she became real to me

These souls that danced, amid the starlit heavens, unto the endless, of all eternity

She and I, and we alone, immersed within a light, a love

That no time, no life, no eyes, have they ever seen....

    This reminds me of the movie 'Somewhere In Time', (One of my favorites) where this young man is mesmerized by a portrait of a beautiful woman with eyes that stare loving at him and lips that only have a smile for him. Then he crosses the boundaries of time to be with the end they were together for all eternity...The write is just beautiful.

    Hey again, John! I do so love this piece!:) Thank you for your kindness and comments..I don't go away, I read what many write, and take the time to enjoy their work. I've many poems that aren't completed..sometimes I think they sound...pop pop pop, corny..hehe However, I will finish them up when I get return to that mood.:) I'm at a crossroads..where many sometimes find themselves. Jump here, there, don't fall over-board! Anyhow, wishing you and yours the best!! God bless..Love to you, Mikki
