Uncanny Passion

There is something about thy
Odor- almost infallibly refined
An awakening of the senses
A roasting of the oblivious mind

For never have I,
In feeling and thought combined,
Ever lusted for a complexity as such
Of a lover going blind

Even if night and morning
Were to intertwine- 
With you I shall soar
Into the ages erstwhile

 Sinking in thought
Of Theology implied
And the ages of yore
Of a primordial mankind

Observing the Mesopotamians
Worshiping in their shrines
And the Phoenician ships
Sailing through the Seas of Time

This all takes place 
When near thy marvel I lie
Deem me insane
Deem my passion malign

When I claim that a cup of coffee
Is what all this is behind

    Oh to be loved like that. Beautiful sensual images.. with the ending a suprise for me.... but it makes a perfect cup and a perfect poem. I keep reading it again so I can return to the beginning and inhale the best part and a great way to start. Awesome write! Congratulations on your success. Tamra

    Was trying to think of a new adjective/s to describe this exceptional poem...will PERFECTLY WRITTEN suffice? You should be so proud of your profound talent! Excellent! Peace always, John
