love you outside of thoughts

if i weren't afraid
i'd shift these thoughts
that fall before the yawn
of morning skies

i'd kiss you
with the passion of its rise
until you blushed with the same
sanguine tones atop your pale skin

breathe deep its gossamer breath
as it falls in winded mists
in the confines of darkness
where we temporarily exist

i'd arch myself within your arms
beneath the soft illumination of moon
where only shadows touch through thoughts

i'd fall within the rhythm 
of your heart's song
the melody of mine
strumming along in perfect harmony

if only to love you outside of thoughts

And who says romantic writes are not your forte? This is up there with the best of them! If Chris Green appreciates it you know it's romantic, well done!

Such a lovely romantic piece Sandy, nice wording and super imagery makes one listen to the message it conveys. You're really a old romantic at heart!!

This reads poetically, as if a faerie has penned it.

Thank you...perhaps i should talk to my muse and ask her where she got this from, she usually hides in darker thoughts :) hugs

For someone who says she doesn't write romantic poetry I have to wonder, who wrote this beautiful and enchanting love poem? :) Absolutely gorgeous, filled with deep affection and desire. Love that last line. A big win is in store with this I believe.

Thank you, what a sweet thing to say... the contest wanted more upbeat then my usual darkness so this one took awhile to pen, and ended with 29 lines because of my normal shorter lines, i had to really work with it to end it at 20...i feel better about it after your kind comment :) hugs
