INTENSITY- In Defense of Intense People

Not everyone can live life in the “intense” mode
It taxes their emotions, and that they cannot bode

They want to be laid back and take things in their stride
So they tuck away their hearts and then run and hide

Intense people are a drain of time and energy
But if you want to see intense, take a look at me

Moments in life with emotions and thoughts are laced
Intensity kisses time, makes it sweetly paced

Sometimes my intensity…can be quite "INTENSE"
Embodiment of passion: woman with no "sense"

But look at it this way, and then you’ll get it right
Passion should be intense, anytime day or night

Think of it and imagine… that long scorching kiss 
When you are pleasured, intensity you’ll not miss

Think of how you’re wanted with intense desire
Intensity makes eternal flames from fire

Intensity of thought will make you feel profound
It’s what will make you soar high...up above the ground

Intensity gives meaning to moments in time
Makes you intensely long to live in the sublime

Intense adoration will be a nat’ral thing
Love will be intense and fulfillment it will bring

Intense caressing: love making to the extreme
Desire drenched in real life and not just a dream

Intense, intense, a curse or is it a blessing sweet?
Well, I guess you’ll never know, until Eileen you meet! ;)

    Why thank you, Richard. Sweet of you to write this. It's good to feel that I'm accepted the way I am. As I pointed out...being intense has it's down sides...but believe me...the pluses are worth it...or so I think! :) Take care...

    Adoration is sure a natural thing Eileen, and your not short of being adored. I came to this one above a few others coz I just knew this would be another revelation. Though I already guessed you were an intense lady, and in you I think, it a blessing sweet. Take care, Regards Richard
