Yearn

“Your longing for ME is my message to you,
All your attempts to reach ME,
Are in reality MY attempts to reach you.”
Rumi

Without you, I am a drop in the ocean, helplessly carried away with waves. My feet are burning in the sands of time, leaving footsteps behind, trying to reach you. You have always been the poem in my heart, yet no poetry could ever define my love for you. My pen was untrue, until you gave it sincerity. Was I even me, until you gave me an identity? You gave vision to vivid words, but there is no metaphor to illustrate our passion. No simile to describe your smile. No onomatopoeia to portray your voice. Are there an abundance of alliterations, expressing the elegant enchantment of your eyes? But there is an irony to forbidden fruit and the term:  "be my sinner, you'll become my winner." I yearn to taste sinful pleasures of your treasures. Can the gardens of my poetic mind, keep my silent ink simple, to symbolise the enigmatic empress of colours, illuminating from one soul to another. There is an art to romance. You are the palette, my fingers desire to stroke, brushing sensual sensations, softly whispering seductive sighs - from your lips to your thighs.  Wrap around me like my winter scarf. Your skin feels like an exotic fabric, more precious than silk, warmer than cashmere, perfumed with heavenly scents. I've never been a fighter, but in your honour, I'll become a warrior, slay the demons at your door, slashing with my sword, protect you from toxic vampires, as your forever shield. Once again the metaphors surface. In the season of death you breathe life into me. You flow through the arteries of my heart. After all, what am I, but all yours.

Oh wow! What a romantic. I was smiling reading through such a lovely write. So many lines to store in my lover's bed when I find one. I only love romance when it's this intense. "I've never been a fighter, but in your honour, I'll become a warrior, slay the demons at your door, slashing with my sword, protect you from toxic vampires." How can we say we are in love if we don't fight for it. "There is an art to romance. You are the palette, my fingers desire to stroke." The rest of this line

Dear Silent One, your gifted pen runs forever gold, romancing the poetic page and enthralling my soul with your enchanting verse. Indeed, the metaphors surface, how could they not? The sensual heartfelt artistry of your verse sets them free. The Rumi quote is awesome and a perfect gateway to your poem. Warmest wishes my inspiring friend.. ~Susan

Dearest Silent One, Yes, your words echo a yearning and devotion that transcends mere language. Each line is a testament to the depth of your love, a love so profound that it defies conventional expression. I loved how your words create a portrait of passion and longing, weaving of emotions that speak directly to the heart. It's as if your soul dances across the page, baring itself in vulnerability and authenticity. You are both the artist and the masterpiece, creating a song of love that is throughout eternity. - Blessings, Daniel

"My feet are burning in the sands of time, leaving footsteps behind, trying to reach you." Love that! "Once again the metaphors surface. In the season of death you breathe life into me. You flow through the arteries of my heart. After all, what am I, but all yours." Very beautiful. Great, inspiring read.

Sensual and oh so romantic, SO! Each stanza fleshes out a theme - gardens, painting, the poet, the ocean - that point to your final line "after all, what am I, but yours." This love poem is written with exquisite finesse like the soft whispering between lovers, a quivering touch and the breath of life. Wonderfully wrought, SO. Best wishes for the contest! Blessings. You bring elegance back to love.

Awesome Rumi quote serves as a powerful romantic introduction to your poem, my friend. Words exuding love and longing charm you canvas to paint heart's brushstrokes. --There is an art to romance. You are the palette, my fingers desire to stroke, brushing sensual sensations, softly whispering seductive sighs --- beautiful...artistic, as always.

Ah how romantic is this! You are one of the best that i read in this generation for romance, and you do it in a way that readers would feel the depth of emotions you express using metaphors similes and alliterations that flow in such eloquence! I love so many lines in this and the picture used here too is so fitting for the poem! I especially loved that last line and also “ I've never been a fighter, but in your honour, I'll become a warrior, slay the demons at your door” soul hitting and so powerful! We all wish for a beloved that would scare all demons aways and bring light and joy to us! Love like this is rare and often read in poems like yours! Youv depicted yearning, in a heartfelt and sensuous manner! Pleasure reading this! Best wishes for the contest!
