Poet's note: Thank you my dear friend Susan, for the wonderful experience of writing with you to present on PoetrySoup this new creation. As we continue to work together, I find greatest of pleasure,  your insight, creativity and truly magnificent verses sent to complete our collaborations.
Our two pens combine to give to the readers our thoughts and those emotions we oft keep hidden. And do so in the high hopes that such openness may help others. To me that is a great reason to write and present poetry...

The Amorous Mystique

Can it be, into this world we are dropped
from heavenly streams that have never stopped?

With sweet hope gifted to our souls delight,
oceans of love and its fiery desires;
ladies so fair, we thank our keen eyesight
and leap into romance hottest fires.

Can it be, wonderment is our reward
given for living in a world so hard?

With love's soulmate waiting a heart to touch,
deepest seas of hot sexual pleasures;
daring to embrace and love very much
this bountiful store, of life's great treasures.

Can it be, that in life's short duration
we go beyond mere infatuation?

With deeper dreams that bless spirits in need,
grant romantic nights of sweetest relief;
birth greatest pleasures of harvested seeds
fruited in soul's spiritual beliefs.

Your questions asked with pulsing energy
of lovers’ wonderland of synergy..

Gifts do flow from fountain to foundations
of souls inspiring minds to understand;
seductive passion’s yearning flirtations
of red embers roused to lusty flames fanned.

In awe you long to know love’s mysteries,
untangling threads in tender reveries..

Of all the gold offered in sun’s rich rays
Sol would be poor in the worth of our love;
for never could there be more wealth of praise
than for ambrosial taste from gods above.

During this life as our lustrous hearts’ beat
we can transcend mundane with love’s white heat..

Our physical plane of mortal being
is heightened with intimate unity;
body and soul in tantra foreseeing
weaving love’s strands into eternity.

Ooh very lovely indeed Robert and Susan. I live the idea of souls descending from heavenly streams... and then blending together on Earth. And the quatrain-couplet structure gives it wonderful flow, interrupted by pauses laden with promise! You two collaborate so seamlessly. Fabulous!
