Spread the love

Often I wondered could you be real;
Wish I could say just how this feels.
Although you seemed complete – ideal
Observe how gamely I shall conceal.

Loved your beauty be it false or true;
You’ve hint of smell – perhaps violet blue
Emotions strange and emotions new;
Though half asleep my eyes pursue.

Often I wondered if you were real;
Our hearts were made of glass and steel
What mattered thus that all around;
Your breath a wave – melodious sound

I saw what others just failed to see;
You’re true as flesh and blood could be.
Your presence taught my heart to soar;
Words they spoke like never before.

Shall search until my soul has found;
A love like this shall know no bounds.
Had never deemed it so essential;
Wish you mine oh quintessential.

    A love like this would be quintessential ~ I specially like this part:

    Shall search until my soul has found;
    A love like this shall know no bounds.

    Thanks for joining us Sanaa & wishing you happy week ~

    You write so brilliantly about the beginnings of a relationship, the in-lust not-quite-love stage, the honeymoon period. I wonder what the follow up poem would be like, on their 25th anniversary?

    This is lovely Sanaa and the photo! And the idea of concealing feelings. One of my favourite words Quintessence and there used to be a spiritual flute/ jazz rock group of that name!

    Often we’re in a blind space when it comes to new lust/love. Like Glenn, I wonder what the feelings will be like down the road a ways.
