An Epic Love For Women

Listen to poem:
I know you're not here but you are in my heart so you are always with me i'll just slip into you with these words. I know there are mountains dwarf the cities below peaks that stride above the heavens attempt to graze the planets if even so lightly. That there is a special star that rises daily against shades of air lit. They tell me there is a wide deep void that is grand - a canyon not too far for any adventurer who dares to look down its throat. Our world is tightly splattered in miraculous views. I remember diving through the horizon where on the other side I found intricate scenes I walked down a dock straight into an orange wine sunset through to steps led to a bridge walked across to an enchanted glitter covered road to a winding path with a floating pink shaded fog until I wandered into an explosion of nature. Once, alone, I witnessed a mud escarpment with splashes of burgundy, shades of maroon, tones in burnt copper and chestnut browns. I found a rare waterfall rushing down into an inviting pool a crystal clear deep blue lagoon unused around it emerald spruces gathered in a cluster of trust. All in all so alluring I willingly stripped bare and melted into the refreshing fully chilled basin down to its coral bottom. I was greeted by an array of tropical aquatic life. Nude, free, happy I swam in the simplicity of the moment. Another time it was a blinding white wavy desert floor totally stripped for miles, then one just one live growing plant it looked like tall fanned out verdant fingers. Remarkable, however what a thin shadow it cast. A bright blue scrim provided a contrast framed for a photographer to snap. Floats in white, scarce were frozen in place and not a wire was evident, just motionless etchings. I sat on the burning sand took a position and meditated. My mantra, rebounded off the thickness of the sultry atmosphere I heard my own voice return to fill me. I bathed in the simplicity of the moment. Yes I love this world All its treasures I swear But you, ah you Not all of nature Not the sun that lights the day sprinkles the skin in its brilliant sheen or the moon that with its romantic smile its alluring suggestions seduces even the least romantic of us. Not the miraculous vegetation of every kind or the moss laden beds where lovers have often laid as one linked to one another - inspired by natures erotic whisper. Ah but you, I would sacrifice all else, just to breathe in your love just to bathe in you. You my passionate want. Our love is my Mecca. When I hold you softly in the strength of my arms. Touching your face sends shivers through my consciousness, holding your hand is like plugging into bliss, watching your mouth, the dent above your lips, you know I overdose ecstatic when mine touches yours. I want to stay - mine on yours, as we speak, as we dream. How I love your smile your laugh. I hold you in the enchantment of my mind. I caress you in the secret chambers of my dreams. I cherish your scent - infinite, singular, invigorating. I roll with you in the autumn leaves of my imagination. I wish you everything - for you are everything to me. I would if I could I would reach beyond my grasp to, to pull Magic from my hat. Squeeze a snowball into a skating rink just to dance on water with you. I will love you into our after life, no man as fortunate as me. They say reach for the stars you may end up with the moon. I reached. I got you, my universe. No man as fortunate as me. Let me make every step you take safe, secure, pillowy soft try not to faint from the sheer fragrance of you. Together we are sunset shadows, shadows that will never fade. Imprinted permanently on the iris of the early evening sky light. (pause) do you remember back when we just met do you remember when it started to sleet when we used the bark from trees to toboggan down the circled path of the mountain dizzy we hit the brakes brakes crafted from the branches of a spruce but friction lit them like matches on kerosene and i really think the smoke filled our lungs travelled to our heads because even before the sleet turned to hail we slipped under the lawn spent hours and hours covered in each other's silky embrace and i confess i peered at every drop of you treated my eyes to your unveiled natural naked nothing but you splendour i held that moment fragile as it was with the greatest of care and hold it still with the same reverence and i really think nothing should feel that good because it just led us to lock lips and you know i could of kissed you an eon passed through it as if it were a fraction of a second our hearts synced and i really think that our breathing our voices melting into the air playing like music is what drove us mad and i get very creative when i go mad the stuff "crazy good" is made of it must of worked because we finally reached the peak of our crescendo laid in the sublime of one another i must of loss consciousness because i still don't remember our rendezvous ending but it must of because i immediately felt your absence and i really think that's why i wrote you why i wrote wanna slip under the lawn again and i really think that's why we've been why we've been together forever Dec 2015 armand

I'm always moved by your words, sometimes reading your poem once is not enough. Better yet, I might be full of emotions of all sort after the first few reads... That's why I move to the next, just to be filled with even more emotions. Or passion, that's what I love about you, I never known what to expect. Brilliant as always. Linda

Brilliant Armand. When we find that one growing plant among the miles of barren desert, how it seems like, or really is, more than just two people. Tapped into the absolute gift from God himself, allowing us to share the Spiritual mastery of the temporal, so well displayed by your “an eon passed through it as if it were a fraction of a second”. To the days ahead, when we will be able to ‘squeeze a snowball into a skating rink’. I love this poem and how you showed the essence of the gift.
