Suddenly there he was
taking words, taking breath
erasing every other memory
and there was only him.

Suddenly there was life,
an able, proffered hand
extended to resuscitate a soul;
to rejuvenate a heart.

Suddenly there was fire,
there were arms and mouths uncensored,
freely giving, freely taking,
exhausting of breath.

Suddenly there was safety,
there was patience; there was warmth,
the calm lightly dusting,
whispering a promise.

And suddenly there he was,
and suddenly there was love.

    Indeed, I am quite female Cas... but I'm so glad to know my gender doesn't play a big role in my writing. I never thought on it before to be honest but since you raised the issue, I hope to write poetry that appeals to everyone and not be pigeonholed, if that makes sense. You have paid me quite a nice compliment, thank you!

    I like this one; symmetrical and not too mushy for a love poem... are you female? I was guessing male from the name and writing style.
