Beneath a pearlescent slice of moon Shining bright against the lonely eventide Abided a laughing, loving tune – musical notes Quite natural, so feral they sung Of a sensuality softly bringing a craving Breaking out in the shadows of starlight Crimped and crinkled like a question mark Asking questions peppered with mystic conceptions On love, romance and passion All the flavors of excitement bound up Within a howling hope so alive it will thrum With a tang, dancing and laughing To the sound of raindrops falling down Sprinkling thoughts so plumb They make the heart desire the fire That thrives when embers are stirred On the inside of those who know love Is much more than the first inklings of a plea Flowing from lips who are pure and free To kiss without ever telling Touch without ever listening And know that this feeling will eventually Lead to more than a mere emotion This affection will ultimately bring about A devotion that can only be expressed Through the time spent sharing the seasons Through the good, the bad and the in between Through everything that comes Into the heart and the soul Of those two who know Love is a living thing – and it flows With a river of kindness Excitement, enlightenment Through waters of pain and sorrow Through silence and noise It breathes in whispers of joy Bringing forth a sense of adoration That is beyond the wildest imagination!

Such descriptiveness. A bit longer to read, but worth the extra effort.
