"Desire"

A yearning
   I can't begin to fathom.
A need
   I can't seem to conquer.
A want 
   I can never seem to have.

It washes over me like velvet.
It bathes me in silk.
It caresses me so softly,
     like a rose that will not wilt.

A flame full of passion,
burning ever so bright.
This desire I have for you,
     each and every night.

Love.
     Passion.
          Desire.
Let your senses shine.

Lust.
     Pleasure.
          Dreams.
Let yourself be mine.

The wind it feels it
     in every blow.
The rain drops it
     in every pour.
The sun senses it
     in every shine.

 

My face gives it away
     in every smile.
My eyes show it,
     in every stare.
My lips speak it.
     in every word.
My ears hear it
     in every whisper.

LOVELY Nikki :]

this has to be my favorite of yours, because it's written in my style. short, emotional, powerful, and easy on the eyes ( the way you changed the spacing ).

great work!! wonderful :]

Ah LOVE is in the air, Spring has sprung and the scent of a beautiful woman is in the air, don't you sense it Ben, grasp it and let your hormones run wild with desire, for loving is for the young and old alike.

Nikki, this is awesome. I love everything about this. It's a celebration of what it is to love, want to love and be loved in return. This is spoken in the language of love. Just so beautiful. A joy to read over and over. You are magic. :)

bella, so glad you liked this. but we cant have you speechless now can we? get to writing!

bb i dont want to make you uncomfortable unless of course you like it. lol

and ben, its so spaced out because they are separate poems of course, i didnt want them too close together. haha me melt your heart?? i cant believe that. :p

and thank you saddlerider for stopping by. i dont think you have graced me with your presence til this hub, so thank you. i shall return the favor.

astra thanks, ive never been called magic before. i like it.

acaetna, be the master of your heartstrings, dont let anyone else take the reigns, you alone are in control of your emotions. let them run wild and play if you like. the desires are ours for the taking! thanks.
