Speak My Language

Speak my language
A language of love I can understand
My heart language
Understand my need
My desire to be understood
Speak my language

Speak fluently to my heart
Words of Affirmation
I thrive on hearing praise
Appreciation
Verbal validation
Of all I do and am
Of all I want to be
Words of Affirmation
Speak to my inner woman
And give her fairy wings
To fly to you and meet YOUR every need
In a language YOU understand

Caress me
Run your fingers through my hair
Let them frolic with every strand
Run them over my lips
Dip them inside
And let my lips close over them
Let my tongue tease
Run your fingers down the length of my arms
Give the fullness a gentle squeeze
Let your lips travel down my neck
On their pilgrimage
To the sacred valley 
Between my breasts
Where they will nestle for a while
Before they travel 
Up the soft snow white ascent 
Longing to explore
The beautifully colored terrain
Of the glorious twin peaks

Gently, with butterfly wings touch my waist
Feel the earthquake motions they instigate
Let your hands speak
A language my body understands
The language of Physical Touch
The one I comprehend the most
A language that will not be lost
In translation to my heart
Words of Affirmation
Physical Touch
My love languages
That fill to overflowing
My desire to be loved, wanted

Acts of Service
I will gladly perform
Speaking now in turn to you
What your heart translates
As love from your woman
I'll show my respect and care
In tangible ways
A bed freshly made
Warm food to tempt your appetite
As I will later tempt your body
A massage to sooth away
The cares of your day

Quality Time
Your heart understands
When I give you my full attention
Putting all else aside
As my eyes focus on yours
And the world stands still
I free my mind to listen to the words
Spoken and unspoken
That you convey to me
And having heard all
I arrange my time
So that your heart can see
You are a top priority
To me

And the final language
Is a shared one, my love
Giving Gifts...
A poem tucked in your briefcase
A flower for me
Heart shaped earrings
My favorite perfume 
A necktie
A luscious mango
When my heart craves succulence
Decadent chocolate
Made ever sweeter
For it comes melting to your lips
Spread on the tips of my breasts
For your mouth to savor
Satisfying your sweet tooth tantrums

Speak my language
Hear with your body and soul
As I eloquently “speak” to you
Love understood, lived, celebrated

Yes, my love
Speak to me
In a language
I can understand

    Love is not just a feeling...it is also a principle. Sometimes it has to be a decision. Thanks for stopping by and the visiting, Cecilia. Hugs

    It's sad that more men all over the world do not understand the basic concept that this poem is discussing. this is wonderful, Eileen. but men are from Mars and it is difficult to find one that can understand those of us from Venus.

    Yes, Andrea. That is the truth! I understand that's a powerful book. I haven't read that one, but this book...Love's 5 Languages by Gary Chapman is very powerful. Try getting a man to even READ a book on marital issues. I have several....Making Love Last Forever, Sex Begins in the Kitchen, He Wins, She wins...and hubby won't read a single one. :( I guess up there in Mars reading doesn't DO it for anyone! HA HA! Lovely visit. I got a bit carried away with this one. Silly me!

    I totally relate to your language. What a trancendent piece of writing. You have a way of speaking into our minds and souls. A definate favorite Eileen. Stunning!

    Richard. Thank you for that adjective. You have just spoken in one of the two languages that reach me...WORDS OF AFFIRMATION! :) Thanks ever so much! Glad you liked it. Always good to have clarity in knowing how best to reach someone.

    "Decadent chocolate", "breasts"...I didn't know chocolate would go good with chicken. ;-) Oh, you mean the OTHER breasts, mm'kay! Passion, food, love...a tremendous combo of a lover's language...especially when you add a rolling of the "R's". I digress. =D

    Tell your beloved: "Your language would I perfectly speak when your boiling blood my empty veins would fill!" Yes, Eileen, you are so right people have to speak each-other's language for understanding to come and love to flourish! Wonderful poem, a 7!

    Gary Chapman is the marriage counselor behind the concept of love languages which are quality time, physical touch, acts of service, giving gifts, and words of affirmation. We often fail to FEEL loved because what is conveyed to us is not in a language that we understand. Here is a link if you would like to find out more about this amazing concept. You will not regret buying the book for couples and for parents. http://marriage.about.com/cs/communicationkeys/a/lovelanguage.htm I am a believer.
