Sometimes Words Are Not Enough

sometimes when love 
          blossoms so deep
bursting like roses blooming
            pink and unfurling
it carves a place within your soul
(etched in rich red blood)

how difficult it becomes
to describe the desperation….
                      aching and pulsing

this gorge…this ocean…
this vast distant space….

yet your rough hands
 palm my hollow cheeks
gently as a flowers touch
and your mans  lips
taste the waiting berries
                   wet and wanting

the clouds you toss me too
white and pure and iridescent
      I fly sometimes higher
than these human wings 
were really ever meant to allow

 I am tossed on wind
rain filled and driving
whipping and wild 
yet so sunny and warm
soft and like feathers

wrapped up in arms
strong and invisible
yet naked and alone

it  plummets me
into eyes that mirror my psyche
into a heart that rages out
a rhythm I can hear
and a beat that I can dance too
in bare feet with daisies
tucked  inside my hair
                                   (free to be me)

in moments when only you
        can fill my body
with this drug of euphoria
raw and wrenching
but soft and clenching

how you move me
I am a giddy little girl
yet a lust starved woman
standing in the middle
of rain soaked streets
waiting for your body
to cinch with my own 
pressed and needy

my lashes are wet 
and my hair is lashed
with stormy downpours
                 and you shred me……
then rebuild and remake me

in these helpless moments 
         of being in love

small hands floundering
my heart just pounding
a thrumming tattoo
and a refrain of your name
on repeat whimpering

yes….sometimes words 
just cannot do love justice

    But you did it, Christie. "Lovely" poem. Great images. This stanza is ....a masterwork: "my lashes are wet /and my hair is lashed/with stormy downpours/and you shred me……/then rebuild and remake me/in these helpless moments/ of being in love" Great job, my friend. Ruben.

    ....Although I seriously doubt that You were thinking of that verse when You wrote this~"Just Another One of Your Beautiful Love Songs!!!!":):):)~And, if this is a true love of "Your Priceless Souls," again? I truly hope that they shall hear "Your Precious Declarations of Love For Themselves!!!?":):):)~And, As Always, "My Love To 'You and Brianna' Forever, John!!!!"~"Happy Easter Beautiful Christie!!!!":):):) Bye ~

    Well, words a beginning I believe~And, I loved Your opening stanza; for there is so much truth within it "Precious Christie!!!!":):):)~Also, along with actually the entire poem; I loved the flowers in the hair part~for it reminded myself of a song which my parents loved when the were young~"If your going to San Francisco be sure to wear flowers in your hair...."~cont~
