What the heart wants

Spread the love

734046_pTGCZTzM

Hear the heart – its pounding high
Whispering low a ceaseless sigh.
The words you spoke used to melt;
Surrendered to urges which we felt.
His eyes of crystal seldom pass;
Piercing through the heart like glass.
Blessings which our wants demand;
Like lanterns through the darkest land.
Catch me into these arms and kiss;
And save me from this cold abyss.
Your presence tastes – violaceous bait
Passion flowers of heaven’s gate.
We lie upon love’s tender porch
Sheltered from the world – its scorch

    I like your use of two voices, you are narrating in one voice. Then transporting us to the moments in another. Slipping in and out of stances. For a very interesting reading. Thanks for linking in at my Sunday Lime today

    Much love…

  19. Susan says:

    Wonderful! Passionate! And what a lovely word is violaceous! Is it by chance that i read of violets in another context today? At Daily Good:
    “Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.” – Mark Twain –
    May your violets be whole and well.

    What a great poem to read. I’d like to think that there was some personal experience to express yourself in this way as my own mind thought of such feelings of so many years ago.
