the wings of a butterfly

I was enveloped in buds bleeding
crimson affection,
wearing ivory silk to cover my flaws-
redeemed by a man of virtuous value, 
wearing eyes only seeing me beautiful;
we seek desirable attachment through
intimacy, 
becoming one dulcet soul;
I’m enchanted by who he is and who he will 
grow to be-
sharing felicity at dawn and passion at night,
fearing not kismet but yearning for more 
years with me by his side (holding frail hands)
like pebbles along the tidal beach he surfaces 
me with resonating wonder-
our connection feeds not on mistrust but truth 
(the Word of God sings)
I shall flee with only him if he’ll let me-
for I am his butterfly...and he is my wings

Lu Loo, congrats on your win with such a great entry. You are a 'daughter' to be proud of. I can't seem to get any rating from Chantelle except N/A. I guess I'll stop disappointing myself and not enter any contests she sponsors.

wow I am shocked and honored, thank you so much. Whenever I get to write whatever I want it's usually 1 of 2 themes. The love for my hubby is one. I am humbly grateful. Be blessed sweet Chantelle (always thought you have a beautiful name) x:)-luloo

Awesome piece here, Luloo:-) Incidentally, my debut poem here is also called "Wings of A Butterfly". But this one is better!
