The Old Words

To hear her voice,would make you entranced Too feel her laugh,and in just a moment A simple glance! All worries;like Icarus, wings shall grow and take flight. Off into the heavens,forever gone, long forgotten, to say forever goodnight. The smell of her skin---long,lingering on my lips, and my sheets. Her kiss--'If death was to come' My heart would pause to beat. Her sweet breathe that I am lucky to know No matter if nothing had ever happened , would be enough even still though She is no longer mine yet her heart still beats in my soul, like God's hand coming down A Storm simply out of control! ' ''I do love bad weather''

Hi Jai, each Love that enters our lives does always stay within our Soul. Your emotions flow so easy down the page stirring the visions painted on your canvas. Loving feelings are ever strong and they ever stay. An excellent first write Jai. A seven from me....Vlad.
