In Love's Embrace This Soul Shall Flourish

In Love's Embrace This Soul Shall Flourish (Collaboration Nicola Byrne and Robert Lindley) “Beloved, forgive my reservations, for dismay has taken hold; Though thy love has cast infinite smiles upon a jaded grimace, I am bound by poisoned notions, of daring actions and desire so bold. Oh how, in thy impassioned embrace, I have found divine solace: Lightning strikes me, a glow reverberating into the dusky twilight, With every charged beating of my heart against thy shielding arms. Only with you, can one hear the beauty of the lark’s song at night, And feel warmth, more sublime than the midday sun’s inviting charms. “I now spend my days longing for but one taste of thy tender lips, And weep with thoughts that thou should ever tire of mine. For thy love illuminates all darkness, and never shall eclipse My undying adoration, for a most sincere heart, such as thine. But I have become daunted and overcome with profound emotion, For untamed passion such as this, to me, was previously unknown. If it be the case, that thou holdst even a glimpse of such devotion, Rest assured that this captivated heart would eternally be thine own.” “Thy joyful smile brought deep light to this weary and lost soul, Every new dawn, gave desserts of thy soft, sweet nectar; Holding thy daring love became my truest and greatest goal, Praying I, not the tragic sad fate of Troy's dying Hector. We saw heavens shine and visited stars in brilliant glow, Each precious moment, I sought to always touch thy hand; My prayer is that my depth of passion shall always show, To bring us to paradise, dancing to music of its golden band. “With the only future that could hold this passionate heart, Thy kiss, could bring a fearful spirit such fantastic relief. Shall we in eternal truth, vow to never, ever need a restart From any time apart, and such dark caverns of epic grief. My darling, accept this my forever promise in loving vow, Where we will always seek each others soft, embracing touch; Even should we live only for joy in our passionate nights now, Know thy sweet depths of infinite love are returned just as much.” Nicola Byrne & Robert J. Lindley 2- 22, 2017 (The first half of this poem shows the words of a lady who is looking for some reassurance from her lover, that his is a lasting/committed love. The second part is the man’s response to her.) Note. I have been honored by composing with Nicola, as her talent awes me and inspires me to improve my poetry. A truly wonderful poetess and a friend.
