Suddenly

Suddenly there he was taking words, taking breath erasing every other memory and there was only him. Suddenly there was life, an able, proffered hand extended to resuscitate a soul; to rejuvenate a heart. Suddenly there was fire, there were arms and mouths uncensored, freely giving, freely taking, exhausting of breath. Suddenly there was safety, there was patience; there was warmth, the calm lightly dusting, whispering a promise. And suddenly there he was, and suddenly there was love.

Indeed, I am quite female Cas... but I'm so glad to know my gender doesn't play a big role in my writing. I never thought on it before to be honest but since you raised the issue, I hope to write poetry that appeals to everyone and not be pigeonholed, if that makes sense. You have paid me quite a nice compliment, thank you!

I like this one; symmetrical and not too mushy for a love poem... are you female? I was guessing male from the name and writing style.
