Serendipity Of Souls

Revealed in that ancient place
where roses become stone and lips dry as dead bone,
the ruins of love my home, hopeless heart shown damp as sorrow known,
rubble etched with tears of deceased romance, a barren face,
my hourglass of power tilted by a hand rough as sand,
body aching for velvet confection, soul suplicant for a loving land,
age dulling the dream for a companion champion, stifling the search,
venturing daily into the world of common hazard and animal angst
standing, fighting, surviving and creating alone, an eagle with no nest,
the sky infinite in distance, sea always pushing my vessel back to fortified beach,

Unexpected like beauty in hunting eyes
you arrived in my life's arena like a veteran of volatile virtue,
speaking as if prepared to die for desire, moving with mischevious fire,
you were my vulnerable Angel, most passionate pulse with carnivorous cries,
we consoled one another when truth seemed cold and trust had narrow view,
offering me the pinnacle pleasure of a Lady's plush rush, I became the love rider,
your flesh, a sanctuary of sexual salvation, your blood, the spirit of immortal rose
Divine Intervention guided you to me, and I to you, together the meaning of love grows

J.A.B.

Don't ever lose that magic of yours! I am looking forward to reading more of your work, new and old. Your older ones, particularly ones you've first posted are very fascinating. They have that rogueness to it, as this one does - really set apart poetry, which is why I was captivated from the beginning. I suppose I don't express it enough, but you are a very inspiring person. You are my favorite poet, and not just on the site! You have my undying support. Always, Laura

Laura, she brings much more than joy into my heart, she laces my limbs and desires with sweet suspense...she ignites burning, unbridled love through my veins! I thank you, my Gothic Princess for making new cathedrals of love and soul from this craft of poetry that yeilds to your instinctive style, that exist to give form to your prowling beauty...J.A.B.

For me I feel you should be dubbed the "Passionate Prince" my friend Eileen is the "Queen of the passionate pen". It appears I am in the presence of royalty!

She and I have crowns of bejeweled hearts, obsession for relentless passion, faces of priceless graces. Your comment is a great honor, you are a poet of real passion as well Richard, thank you. J.A.B.

This is another seemingly passionate underlying love story Justin. You mind is very seductive. Rated X... Verlena

It is no story Verlena, it is a soul saga, which I know you live for as well. Divine Intervention is something that a heart feels, and a soul shows, like you so awesomely display in your original poetry and mission. J.A.B.

Again....goosebumps....wow Justin! This is amazing. This reminds me that true love is timeless, beyond mortality, and healing--so very healing! I love your honest, fervent heart in these brilliant lines... how you lay down the beginning with a feral, sorrowful and almost apocalyptic foundation, and ended it with the sweet unexpected...was just... divine in every way. Just as your love grows for each other, your poetry will too, living forever... always..Laura

You uplift me with your philosophical, spiritual and sensual responses to my heartwork Laura. To say I love your mentality is an undrrstatement. There truly is something apocolyptic and rogue about the first verse, wow! Love has a time and law unto itself Laura...J.A.B.

The most exciting and life changing events always happen when we least expect them. Just when we think we're all alone, we're not.... This poem is really beautiful, Justin. I love how you write straight from the heart and deep from the soul.

You are correct Kelly, and strangely, those unforeseen and unplanned trials and blessings are resultant from everything we've ever decided to do which conjoins us to the course of others where the infallible Cosmos has brought them to discover eachother, presenting meaning to who and why they are. So in a way the encounter is predictable, volatile, undefinable, and in this instance also very beautiful KellyJ.A.B.

Yes, I see you as an eagle, Justin...flying high...flying free...with eyes that see every detail below. So much of this beautiful write is rife with meaning and analogies. I particularly like "body aching for velvet confection" what a sweet line that is. A love rider...strong and determined. Lovely write in every way.
