First star to your empty Night

I want a love that
fills my veins like
liquid fireworks
sweet like sugar and 
strong enough to knock
me off my feet, like a 
mighty ocean wave, yet
gentle and magic
like the forgotten lyrics
to a nursery rhyme

I want our spirits to soar
into a bright forever
like two yellow balloons
released, by the
tiny, sticky hands
of a little child
I want, my man, to know
my true self
like the words to a favorite
song on the radio
to feel me, all that is me
rhythm bound from a beaten
street drummer

I wish to be a bright guiding light
as the first star
to your empty night
A familiar love, as
traveling back to a childhood spot
your first love kiss...
first bully fight...
first playground crush lost...

I want a love
that encompasses
my senses, envelopes me
from nothing, like the
steam from my rose petal tea
filling my pores
leaving me
rejuvenated and refreshed

A love, whom steals my worries
as a thief in the night
and greets me with doe- eyed
kisses, once rounding
up a fight

I speak these words into the 
universe, to send me a love
to call my own
what path will my soul mate
travel to me, mysterious 
mystical journey unknown

    This is really wonderful and touching. i think we all want a love like that. I never dreamed I would find it after my divorce, but i have and she is my true soul mate. I have never felt a connection like this. This was a very beautiful poem.

    Such an interesting poem to read, the expectations and the searching for the one special love.

    Wow!!!! A passionate poem -very expressive - depicts a most rare form of love. You have set a very high standard of love. May you attain it! In line 8 word 'might', perhaps you mean 'mighty'. Thanks also for your encouraging comment on my Ghazal Stranger. -Mohammad

    Many of us seek the type of passion you describe and I've found that most times lasting love starts from friendship. I hope you find your "soul mate," Hillary. It may be someone you already know. I think it was Emily Dickinson who wrote, "The higher the flame has leaped, the colder and deader the ashes." I'm hoping you find a spark that takes hold and burns for a lifetime. Love, Carolyn
