You Take My Breath Away


You take my breath away...



You take my breath away...



Your peaceful aura,

Drew me in.

Then your voice,

Made my head spin.



Your essence has,

That sweet allure.

I've come to see,

Your thoughts are pure.



You take my breath away...



Like a dog and his bark,

Like a goblin after dark.

Like going to the moon,

Or leaving you too soon...



You take my breath away...



I love your curves.

I love your lines.

You're the perfect blend,

Of all the wines.



You take my breath away...



You know your lips,

Are brandywine.

Your finger tips,

Can change my mind.



You take my breath away...



Your hands are charms,

At the ends of your arms.



You take my breath away...



Like a wave,

At its crest,

Like a baby,

To the mother's breast...



You take my breath away...



Like a canyon,

They call Grand,

Like a bird,

Eating from my hand...



You take my breath away...



Your loving eyes,

Break my disguise.

At your feet,

Let me sleep,

On a cold,

Winter night.

I won't,

Make a peep,

Till dawn's,

Bright light.



Because...you... take my breath away...



There is no task,

That I won't do,

To breathe this vapor,

That is you.



Because...you... take my breath away...



My love will last,

Till the end of time,

Cause like a hill,

Too steep to climb,


                                              You take my breath away!



                                                                                                      You... take...

Sweet poem, hope your lady liked it.

Like an after dinner mint,

at a garlic eating contest,

You take my breath away,

that's why I love you best.

Just kidding, your poem is sweet, although I was thrown by the alien picture in the end. She must really rock your universe!

This is imagination Ginger Meow. I can love women a lot better through these keys than I can in real life I guess. Can't remember actually. Seems like there were a lot of good, wonderful, and beautiful parts.

I can imagine. God bless Ginger Meow!

Michael Dear;

you play so well, you sweep me of my feet. If only others could play so well, those who need to switch gears, to loving instead of hating!

I love to play

in your backyard any day

in your tree house

each and every day

to sit with you

on your porch

feeding the birds each morn

I would never be forlorn

Mickey Dee you play so well

You keep me in your spell!

So long as you come out to play

I will to your backyard

run to play!

Our imaginations are such a beautiful thing

if only more people would use theirs.

After all is it not how things come into reality!

Come on people, come out to play! :D

Mickey has such a great backyard :D the view from

here is absolutely wonderful, from there it would be

even better. Anyway, I imagine it would! ha I love you MD I did push all those buttons :D ha ha

Sa'ge, you wonderful child!

Please come play!

Today.

Run over here.

We'll watch the deer.

The birds will fly.

The squirrels will drop by.

If you will do the Hula,

I will find some moolah,

We'll have ice-cream,

Hold hands and dream.

lorlie- I bet you're the perfect blend of all the wines too.

Hummingbird, thank you for flying by.

Yo Brother Matt! Let's keep the faith and Semper Fi!

Yo Brother Justom! You are so kind. I'll come see you soon!

BobbiRant Dear! You ladies draw "magic" like this out of mud like me. It's all you ladies.

Yo Nephew Prasetio! I know you have something beautiful going on over at your place. I'll come see you soon. God bless you Prasetio!

Yo yo yo! 50 Caliber Dude! Thank you sir. I think the warmest memories bring about words like this.

Marti!!! I am so glad you liked this. I'm glad you took that last line. That's kind of how it "floated out".

You know- I see this sa a song. But I see "you take my breath away" being said twice not once. I think reading, especially out loud, once is best. I just "see" something- you know. God bless!

Very beautiful words Micky and the pictures are perfect.

To have someone who takes your breath away

Is like a romantic holiday

Foot prints on the sandy beach

Your lover within arms length

Swimming in the bright moon light

Cuddling close throughout the night

This is what God intended

It,s a wonderful story-book ending

Beautiful poetry and picture #3 I will one day capture or close, I never have a camera with me when I see something close to that, but now I carry it every day just in case. I have a cloud picture now I took unlike anything I have seen and waiting for my son to teach me how to water mark it, it looks like I took it from a plane which I have never been in. Too bad you didn't go to Charles Towne Landing while you were so near it, especially if you have never been, it can't be more than twenty minutes from Charleston, with 22 acres I think it said of bike trails. So gorgeous.

Micky Dee 6 years ago Author

Polly- I think I need to go back to your Charles Towne hub. I meant to comment there but was in a hurry and meant to go back. I was there decades ago, but I lived in Charleston two years ago. My favorite spot might be the Angel Oak! Thank you Ma'am!

You have the heart and soul of a romantic poet and it shines through very brightly in these silken words that seemingly glide across the page (computer screen) right into our hearts.

You have cracked up! See what you get when your rhyme so fast?

epigramman's epitaph,

was short and sweet.

For St. Peter,

he was to meet.

St. Peter said, "Epi Son,

why aren't you on time?"

Epi Man said, "St. Peter Dude!

I was writing another rhyme."

St. Peter said, "Epi,

You're still warm beneath the sod,

But you'd better explain this to God."

Dear God, "said Epi,

I wasn't disrespectful.

Unless I share a rhyme,

I feel I'm neglectful.

You see Dear Lord,

some of us love one another,

We show our compassion,

as we help one another.

I write a smile,

and toss it high.

And soon it's written,

in the clear blue sky."

God said ,"Epi,

"You are needed,

down there.

But in return,

I want your hair."

Epi said "God,

I guess that's fair.

And I don't care,

if my head is bare.

And thank you God,

for your love and grace,

and getting a glimpse,

of your majestic face,

And I hate to run,

at this ridiculous pace,

But could someone drop me,

at Micky Dee's place?"

God said, "sure Epi,

we'll take you there below,

and please tell the rest,

of the hubbers hello!"

Epigramman, my Brother Man,

And for all of us here -

YOU LIGHT OUR FIRE!

I would not mind watching and listening

to the both of you in a poetry slam!

but five lines at a time

keeping things in line.

short and sweet

back and forth to the beat.
