The Wonders of you

When what do my pondering thoughts become
Now that your visions and affections have tunneled my way
No longer precariously wandering through the confides of my mind
Because of you I enjoy your soft graceful ribbons of warmth
You feed my need for utter emotion slumbering within your ecstasy
Yes I am so grateful for the human bond you’ve reassured me with
How could I ever wish for more in the shades of your serene eloquent
I swell up with a scarlet blush for the attributes you posture victoriously 
You believe in me empowering me to abide in my mortal existence
Yes I know I’ve challenged your patience from time to time 
Only to find you’re forgiving arms waiting to grant me your pardon 
No need to plunge into a rampage of an un-purposeful storm
Now I glide speechlessly into the tail winds of your language
Tomorrow the sun shall rise high in the tender joy of your eyes 
Because of the wonders of you!


  Inspired by Matt Caliri’s “I love you because” contest

    Great entry Laura.. enjoyed your lead in lines .. interest factor drew me right into reading deeply.. words of love without the use of love.. I entered Cozy Confections.. this was really challenging cause every other word u want to say or use love.. thankxxx for your comments on my "steamy" poem.. more to come like that one... in collaboration form... good luck with this one in the contest.. I am hooked on it already.. luv.. Linda-Marie
