Under the influence of you

Virgin breezes sweep through our distant white curtains
A cluster of candles lit our shadows silhouetting two 
Purposeful detainment- 
Soft conjoined lips breathe warmth throughout our bodies 
Lovers are we spilling fever into each others eyes
Tepid souls gently flow ribbons of pleasure 
Familiar aromas and tastes hang in mouths 
Carry me weak into the light of your love 
Forever-restless abiding love drenched in eagerness
Rapture, devotion, intimately in the arms of ivy needing 
Moments turn to hours of a spell building 
Lets ride into the unknown and never turn back 
Standing still in love 
Never turning away.
Capture us in a bubble floating in the seas of time
Seahorses bow, fairies sparkling dust departing violet streams of what we grew    

Inspired by John Heck's love contest!

    Amazing use of language to convey sights, sounds, even smells that conjure feelings of love. The last line is priceless, Laura. Great work. I'm still out of town with family, but had to sign on and see what I've missed. So glad I caught this one! Excellent work. Love, Carolyn
