The Path of Love

My love softly walks with my heart in hand
down a path that will lead 
to the center of my being.
In the windows that are my loves eyes
I can see the promise of all tomorrows.
With the caress of a hand a declaration
of what is yet to come.
Warm sultry words are gently spoken
yet strong enough to penetrate
all walls of fear or hesitation.
Lips swollen with loves need now dire
burn in me a path of fire.
Heart to heart and flesh to flesh
two souls meet in loves pyre.
The symphony of mind and soul 
rise and fall with unquenching amplitude.
Like the cadence beat of a kettle drum
two hearts beat as one.
As emotions soar to the pinnacle of
celestial firmament all time seems suspended.
Then like an artesian well love explodes
consuming the two souls that lay within.
As a chalice passed each luxuriates in the
liquid pearls that lay therein.
The rapture now complete gently settles
to peaceful bliss as the two now bask 
in the afterglow side by side 
with hearts in hand.

    This was me trying to show a little spice. You should hear this read aloud as in the way I wrote it it picks up pace and volume and then creschendoes. The volume becomes softer and slower till back to normal. This makes the poem come alive. Thanks Huggs TLee

    I can't send you soup mail, you must have that option turned off on your profile. on the left one of the links is contest:by members, you just scroll through them read a few then write what they ask , once its written go back to the contest clucker enter contest a list of your poetry appears, click the one to be entered and at bottom of the list click enter contest, read each contest carefully, some are sticklers for rules (like me)

    I could turn on my soup mail. I wasn't sure just what that was, how it worked and didn't want my email flooded. I will try to stick to the rules. Can I ask questions if I need to to better understand some of the terms? What do you mean format the poem? You mean like the arrangement of the poem on the page?

    I know and the censor's buzzer never went off the first time. wow. Darn I think Lenny Bruce was wispering in my ear. As to the contest I'll try. There are quite a few really good poets here so we'll see what we shall see. Thanks for your lovely review dear lady. OOPS tell me how to enter the contest.

    I found the two errors that I had made and it reads even better now than it did. I am glad that you liked the poem. Writing it made me think of Lenny Bruce as so much is eluded to here in what I call perfumed words to not set off the sensors. Thank you very much for your kind review.
