No matter how tall, or how far, he is the man I love.


The man I long to hold
Within my embrace.
To kiss his lips,
Feel the rough of his smile
Soothe my ache.


Walking side by side,
Hand in hand;
Eyes memorizing his every move,
Preparing blue prints
For my tongue.


A single moment, to taste his breath,
Ecstasy would be mine.
A fire ignites,
Penetrates my soul,
As I simply think of him.


My body swells,
Overwhelmed with passion, with angst,
As I talk to him.
Readied fingers scurry
As I read his words.


Tears of joyous pleasure meet my lips,
As I see him.
A word,
A laugh,
A picture.


My wake is met with
Only happiness,


No matter how tall, or how far, he is the man I love.

    Great to see another post of yours! This would make great lyrics for a classic jazz song! Of course it reminds me of the original “The man I love” (with lyrics by Ira Gershwin) but this is very different — but very good!

      Thank you, ZumPoems!! I always appreciate your kind words & enthusiasm for my wriitng. I love that this reminded you of such a beautiful song. As I wrote it to my own melody, I wondered it others might pick up on the tune in my head. I’m glad you sensed a musical sense to this piece. I thank you kindly.

    What a beautiful love story~u ever thought of writing some song lyrics??

  11. Of passions and expressions
    You have fashioned your confessions
    In a beautiful enclosure
    To expose your deep obsessions
    And they make quite an impression!


    Grand work, my dear. A lovely poem indeed. I am now subscribed to this blog and I anxiously await more of your work!
