Lover's Knot

A wistful smile upon her face,
Belies the look I need to trace;
For love needs not cruel rejection,
Instead it longs for sweet perfection.

Reaching out to touch tomorrow,
Leaving all that causes sorrow;
Looking forward with such yearning,
I find joy at your returning.             

Let me taste your scent once more,
Bring back the dream we had before;
Have no fear and fear no scorn.
For buds of love will soon be born.

On your cheek the morning blush,
On your brow a fevered flush;
Like berries sitting in the cream,
You light my soul and fill my dream.
Let me quench your thirsty lips,
And taste the juice of honeyed drips;
To caress the languid eyes that sleep,
And join with mine that need to weep.

I need reach out to touch a star,
To know for sure just where you are;
For body language is understood,
Giving and forgiving all it should.

When fingers knit a lovers knot,
And find a stitch that they forgot;
Then all things that transpire,
Will feed the flame that lights the fire.

    * “I Find A Deep Yearning Amid These Beautiful Colours Brushed In Love * My Dear Sweet Beautiful Elizabeth * Although The Hues May A Bit Darker Within Spokens Shades * This Leads One Unto The Point in No Doubts * How Very True & From The Core of Your Beautiful Soul * They Were Lifted to Be Brushed Atop Loves Poetic Canvas * Owww, Tis Sooo Amazingly Beautiful * My Luv, Always * Sarah.” *

    Love is like a bone. It's easy to shatter but hard to repair. I hope all is well for you. :-)

    Elizabeth, this one croons. Last stanza is sublime. You know, not sure if I should share this thought or how you'll take it, but your poems make me itch to reply sometimes. Like Raleigh to Marlow "The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd/The Passionate Shepherd to His Love". Inspiring stuff, I mean, makes my pen ITCH! :-) Keep spilling your beans, they are magic. Cyndi
