Author's Notes:  "My Heart Skips a Beat My Love" is a passionate romance poem whereby I've tried to capture and express certain feelings, thoughts, emotions, and variable moods that a couple in love may experience as they grow and blend into "one" in a relationship.  God only knows how difficult and tempestuous many relationships can be at times when you are dealing with the thoughts, feelings, and passions of two people who care for one another and are in love, but also must contend with the challenges of everyday living, etc.  As with any of the poems that I write, I will leave any final judgments to you the reader.  (Gary Bateman - November 5, 2014) (Free Verse)

My heart skips a beat my love each and every time 
I’m with you my dearest sweet and lovely Darling
Since the passions and feelings you stir in me
Touch the very depth of my inner being and soul
And render themselves not to mere words only
Suitable for depiction, exhibition, understanding
Rather to the image and strength of your beauty
And your rapturous desire and feeling as they
Defy rational attempts at any simple description
For you are the most radiant beyond all compare
My heart skips a beat my love when we lie together
Locked in a most enchanting embrace and kissing
So deeply, palpably that we run out of breath and pant
Anxiously at what comes next in our mutual longing
And crescendo as our passions explode and express
Themselves in a most hungry trail of urges and desires
Which makes finding love for us all the more magical
Pairing us together like a couple of star-struck kids 
Lost impossibly in moments of hope and imagination 
In a timeless world of love, desire, emotion, and oneness

My heart skips a beat my love when we walk so closely
Hand-in-hand talking, laughing, and living our dreams
Confronting the world and taking on whatever comes
Next as we steer our ship of destiny on a true course
Where our like-thoughts and deep love for each other
Mean something quite special that only Dreamers and 
Poets can imagine and set to melody and harmony in perfect 
Verses of sheer passion and delight painted onto a canvas  
Of unending happiness where Heaven and Earth are one
My heart skips a beat my love when we’re forever one

Love is a sweet death.In love we just forge ahead to singularity.. a prelude to a big bang. We call is abyakta..we cannot express it in words. It's pure ecstasy, it empowers us. Great poem. adding it to my fav list.
