A journey beyond all else

For Sue ......

Living beneath the highway of emotion
I found only transient gratifications
Until you came by the way of mutual
needs ...... our souls satisfactions

And for once I learned the truest meaning of
love and sinful pleasure
Yet it wasn't about the sex alone love
it merely became
a new way to measure

To reach those highest peaks though we had to
climb our own separate paths
Mine through a jungle tangled .... emotionless
you lost in lesser halves

But get here we did and what a view
granted to those only at the crest
The burning of our inner souls
and a touch of only the best

Much like a fine wine and the dance
it does on your tongue
No ....we never could have known
we'd be together when young

And yes ...like one bottle of wine your taste is
forever on my lips
But no lets slow this down until
we only love in sips

The pleasures you gave me sweety
I may never recover
But the tastes......the tastes alone... may they
eternally hover

Voted up and awesome. So many wonderful emotions. True love should be taken slowly and savored like fine wine. Enjoyed much. Passing this on.
