Lover's Knot

A wistful smile upon her face, Belies the look I need to trace; For love needs not cruel rejection, Instead it longs for sweet perfection. Reaching out to touch tomorrow, Leaving all that causes sorrow; Looking forward with such yearning, I find joy at your returning. Let me taste your scent once more, Bring back the dream we had before; Have no fear and fear no scorn. For buds of love will soon be born. On your cheek the morning blush, On your brow a fevered flush; Like berries sitting in the cream, You light my soul and fill my dream. Let me quench your thirsty lips, And taste the juice of honeyed drips; To caress the languid eyes that sleep, And join with mine that need to weep. I need reach out to touch a star, To know for sure just where you are; For body language is understood, Giving and forgiving all it should. When fingers knit a lovers knot, And find a stitch that they forgot; Then all things that transpire, Will feed the flame that lights the fire.

Love is like a bone. It's easy to shatter but hard to repair. I hope all is well for you. :-)

Elizabeth, this one croons. Last stanza is sublime. You know, not sure if I should share this thought or how you'll take it, but your poems make me itch to reply sometimes. Like Raleigh to Marlow "The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd/The Passionate Shepherd to His Love". Inspiring stuff, I mean, makes my pen ITCH! :-) Keep spilling your beans, they are magic. Cyndi
