Love Story

Spread the love

Like snow that melts upon touch,
Oh! soft as scent of damask rose.
So often a heart harbors dreams,
as though mere whisper unheard.
You are desire, sweet, pulsating;
a melody that bewitches my mind
body and soul ―

I gasp as he paints his thoughts on
clouds of fire, spruce and mauve ―
Shivers ebb as waves on virgin skin,
as I sought to perceive love through
the eyes of my friend.

    Your are the mistress of romance, Sanaa! Wonderful lines:
    ‘You are desire, sweet, pulsating;
    a melody that bewitches my mind
    body and soul ―’
    and I enjoyed the colours in that final stanza.

    How beautiful romance is as you discover so much by the scent, the touch and feel of each other. Painting with soft fingers is indeed a delight and easy to envision the scene through your writing Sanaa.
