A Dowry Of Dreams

Dreams are approaching my Love
following the stars to your heart,
beside your body I breathe and gaurd your lips 
the sentinel of your stellar song, the heat along your lyrics
listening to your language of smooth beauty unfurling lunar fabrics
wasting all the wrong that reaches for your innocence,
demons dare not the sharp sheen of my devoted dagger,
death will not tresspass within the life of your love,

There is a sweet ancient spirit in you
born from the sun and salt of sorrow and seduction
a sad nobility that fights for fragile kisses, to uplift the underworld,
bring the drum beats of savage, hot lights into focus on the firmament
hush the stars that wait softly for sweating bodies of fire  -

J.A.B.

I am sorry Justin I was using the phrase "Steal a woman's heart" in its figurative meaning not its literate meaning. I followed it with words that in their essence I believe meant the same as your own interpretation. I thought your poem quite brilliant. The last thing I was trying to do was to offend you. I am so sorry if you found my wording careless. I will be more careful in the future. I have the upmost respect and love for everyone. Lots Of Love, Armand.

You have a gift of seeing the embodiment of a woman's essence. This is a rare gift especially when expressed by one as talented as you are with a pen.

I don't steal love, I build it with a soul who's beauty I trust, and that teaches me about salvation through experirnce. To accept another's nature, without ridicule, just understanding Maurice...J.A.B.

To be reliable, and self sacraficing for the one you love is real purpose, to help them cry, climb, create, love and shine is the only friendship that means anything. Thank you Neva...J.A.B.

Loyal love makes songs of our hearts...every song starts with a truth, and this song as this song does, and it finishes with a kiss as well Jay...J.A.B.

There is just something so admirable of your devotion, the qualities pointed out are something to glorify between each other forever. Your love scares demons away, even death. This one touches my heart. I kiss your mind, for it brings joy and hope to mine. Always, Laura

A woman who won't surrender to sorrow, living to learn why beauty is fragile and precious, to touch all the wonder that she can, in so doing giving hope to the downtrodden, and honoring Divine creation Laura...J.A.B.

To protect the one you love is a beautiful and noble thing to do, Justin. The stars will hush for bodies that can be together...without boundaries or restrictions. Love is to be celebrated in full and not in part. A passionate piece...

You are right Eileen, love not establish limits, love must provide a liberty for hearts, a freedom to realize what they need for happiness and productivity, and then to defend that love with indefatigable passion. I glad my poem spurred your heart to express it's beautiful wisdom...J.A.B.
