To Be Kissing Her

I continually try to express the nature, depth, the concept of my love – with this poem I thought I would try to voice the more corporeal aspect, the touch . . .


My wife and I come from very different experiences. Temperament wise we’re not much alike. How we approach things is not at all similar. How do you explain this kind of love? I know why, and it makes sense why, I love my mother. I know why, and it makes sense why, I love my children. But how and why do two individuals, from very different families, with very different ways about them determine that they need to be together forever?


I met my wife when she was 15, I was 16, and she swept me off my feet. I saw her from afar, had someone introduce us, and we’ve been together ever since. Now, the urgent, unyielding craving to hold her body close to mine has always amazed me. I’m very much a cerebral man, very sedentary, most that thrills me in this life is of an academic flavor . . . and I truly believe my wife’s most admirable features are displayed in her kindness, her lack of pretense, her capacity to love – I don’t count her physical beauty to be a great virtue, yet I am endlessly drawn to pull her close to me and hold her in my arms. I understand this is the way we’re made and that I am a normal red-blooded adult man – but my intoxication with her beauty and my uninterrupted longing to hold her, all this body stuff, does puzzle me . . . and, doesn’t.


I grew-up poor and always moving – my wife grew-up well cared for and always in the same house, same school . . . when we met everything stopped and eternity had it’s way.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


To Be Kissing Her



A world of meager with plenty of without,

Change defined my only known normal;

Body scarred, heart hard.



New this and plenty more of that,

Merchandise can’t corrupt her sweetness;

Angelic face, heart of grace.



Uneasy in my perpetual contentment,

Aloneness an unrecognized tutor;

Life of the mind, to the practical blind.


Dutiful achievement her ongoing scheme,

Visiting all a customary delights;

Charm to beguile, untouched by trial.



Everything ends and then everything starts,

Our Creator mends one out of two different hearts;

Everything changed now nothing can sever,

Eternity arranged this union to be forever;

Everything around us seems designed from above,

Heaven surround her with my unending love.



The space between us I eagerly hate,

Closeness to her coerces me closer still;

My hand placed, around her waist.



Drawing her hips still closer to me,

Despised space disappears as bodies touch;

Until pressed, against her breast.



Her eyes whisper of her screaming heart,

Our bodies surrender desire to plunging lips;

Stirring bliss, our first kiss.

Mickey, I am so in awe! You give me hope. I've yet to find true love, not knowing if I can't give as deeply, or I give so deeply I discard those who can't live up to it. I've seen true, lasting love only thrice in my life. God gives us our path. I think mine won't be shared until I achieve the dreams I set aside for others, years ago. I'm on my way! Maybe one day I'll find just the right person to share my rose-colored glasses and dance to the music! You and your woman are blessed, indeed!

I enjoyed your explanation before the poem more. To me it says alot about what is in your heart and that you think about the differences because you are cerebral is actually all the more endearing. There is alot of honesty and truth in it. Nicely done.

Your expression of love in this hub is beautiful. Sometimes I think it is our differences in relationship that keep our passion for one another alive. Listening to others talk about their relationship with their spouses, they keep looking for the sameness. Sometimes we forget what brought us together to begin with. To me that is the thing that separates a relationship. Thank you for this beautiful poem.

Oh Mickey your really hitting them out of the ballpark

this was my favourite part

Everything ends and then everything starts,

Eternity mends one out of two different hearts;

Everything changed now nothing can sever,

Eternity arranged this union to be forever;

Everything around us seems designed from above,

Eternity surround her with my unending love.

Your poetry is emotionally inspiring and brings truth inside of me almost as a reminder.

Thank you for that

Kimberly,

I can't tell you how delighted I was to find your comment here . . . I feared I offended you or that you were troubled by something of mine you read, it's seems so long since I've heard from you - I'm happy to discover you're overburdened. Please always tend to whatever you need give your attention to without feeling obliged to me at all, but, as soon as you can read every hub I've posted here that you've not already commented on and give me your renowned 'Kimberly no-bullshit assessment' I so esteem.

Thank you overflowingly for your favorably words regarding my efforts above, it means the world to me. My own favorite bit is ~

"Uneasy in my perpetual contentment,

Aloneness an unrecognized tutor;

Life of the mind, to the practical blind."

. . . because that is flamboyantly me.

. . . and ~

"The space between us I eagerly hate,

Closeness to her coerces me closer still;

My hand placed, around her waist."

. . . because that is continually happening.

I often ponder over my need to hold the one I love very close to me... I actually want the person to be inside me, part of me.

This is how we were made... we were born with an urge to become ONE - one husband and wife, one family, one community, one nation... Our souls yearn for solidarity... and not to talk about our basic urge to multiply...

Mickey, the fact that you muse over your love for your wife, is such a prove that true love can not be understood and explained... If it exists between two people, whether romantic or platonic, it is too great for the human mind to comprehend. I guess that is why we believe God is Love.

Voted up and awesome...

Mickey....the strength and depth ... yet simplicity, of the love that you feel and write of so eloquently, comes to very few unique and blessed individuals. That you met and connected and are bound for all eternity is the stuff of Fairy Tales.....the magic that we wish and we hope for, but rarely find.

I've no idea why your drive and need to , "hold her close," at all times, perplexes you!~ Can't imagine why this need would NOT overwhelm you......C R A Z Y ....love. Not a damned thing compares....S I G H.

You are, always, the best . . . my normal day to day mode is way too cerebral for most folks (I don't mean smart at all, just all about ideas & concepts, etc) that when I step out and share on a more emotional level, and others 'get' and are even a little moved by these very personal and real pieces I write, it means more than you might imagine. Thank you.
