To Be With You -

I love you,
that's not hard for me to say,
its not a prediction, or a reflection, it just is
a motion in my heart's ocean,
an ocean named Odyssey
a color called True For You,
I don't want to hide that from you like sparkle from a jewel,
hiding love is a difficult game,
an invisible flame starving for the fame of your name,
and sometimes love can get lost in the playing fields,

My soul can't wait 'till another lifetime to spark on your's,
my body won't survive the well wishes of Eternity's elasticity,
the gravity of my greed for you will not escape the orbit of obsession,

I can't afford another lifetime, another baptism in Beauty's bemusement,
Time will not outflank my love for you,
graves & guesses, epitaphs & epiphanies would only bruise my passion,
a will power refusing to withstand the winks of the clock towers torment,
the thick wick of my wonderlust must combust now or never,
we need to turn winter into spring,
flip silver into gold,
to make touch our bread,
push pink into red -

J.A.B.

There is an old hymn we used to sing which is so relevant and true today Justin. Bind us together Lord, bind us together, With cords that cannot be broken. Bind us together Lord , bind us together, Bind us together with love. God Bless you & yours. D.

We are bound by cords of inescapable passion, so tight within love. That hymn is righteous my friend...J.A.B.

You seem to draw from the very cosmos to compare the hugeness of love. True love can have no bounds in time and space. This is how I feel about my lovely wife of 45 years. A lovely write my poetic friend. God Bless. D.

Thank you very much John. I have a remarkable talent for loving her, it seems as thogh everything that I've experienced in my life was a preparation for understanding her, growing with her, being madly in love with her mysterious and seductive extremes of genius, emotions and needs. I was born to love her... J.A.B.
Date: 5/5/2015 3:25:00 PM
Second time to read this, Justin. Again, I am awed. You are both fortunate. You, for finding true love and inspiration. She, for having you, who is able to express your love and devotion with such raw sincerity and beauty...Indeed the language of the heart is more powerfully expressed when the words intended for the beloved are set free, able to explore and caress the nuances of passionate anticipation and realization. A 7 and a fav! Kim

Kim, your comment is remarkable in it's empathy and love psychology. Poetry is the language of the heart, and love living in silence is just a shadow of a hearbeat. I am fortunate as fire in the palm of freedom's hand Kim...J.A.B.
