We Melt as Only True Lovers Can: An Essential Poem of Real Love

What it is to just fit

We Melt as Only True Lovers Can, is about great love and for great lovers, what it is to be completely absorbed in their love, a love that 'fits.'

There is a state of being that has been described by lovers, poets and writers, for hundreds of years. It is a state of being that, for most people, will never be reached. I am not referring to finding or falling in love based on the chemical, material, spiritual, physical or emotional attributes of, or attractions to someone; even though the greatest percentage of relationships are built on some of those attributes. I am referring to a far, far greater love than that. The kind of attraction in which you will become completely addicted to your lover. History has told of such great loves throughout time. The total immersion of souls into a complete 'oneness' with each other, has even gone so far as to start wars.

Great Love. If you are lucky enough to find it or more to the point, be found by it, then ride it and ride it, as if it is a surfer's greatest wave and it is the last and longest ride. I hope you are beginning to understand what I mean. Follow the heartbeat, without doubt or other influence. It is the greatest wave that you will ride, so don't miss it. If you do, then you will miss truly finding yourself and what it means for lovers to completely fit together, like never before. People view 'love' differently, until they actually experience a different love, like the great love described in the poem below.

Please Enjoy 'We Melt as Only True Lovers Can.' A poem written for all great lovers who know and can celebrate this amazing state of being. May it come to you one day.

‘We Melt....

As Only True Lovers Can’

I want to quietly seduce you

from within the embers of my soul

as only true lovers can

Take in a lifetime’s heat, these words

while they smolder before the dawn

Take in my love, my all

for I know that I am home

when we melt in this embrace

o0o

Take all anticipation, burning lips, desire

as only true lovers can

share crystal dew before the dawn

Let me hold this moment, your breath

flows throughout all time

with hearts beating welcome

to first slivers of golden light

and birdsong; gives news of this love

o0o

The orb spider has long cast his nets

diligently tending to favorite harbor sounds

Salty comings and goings sway to our news

of glistening beads of lovers, damp warmth

Fishing for the promise of a breath caught

as only true lovers can, we taste our thoughts

and they smolder to flame once more

while you ask the spider to look away

o0o

So tell me, will we always spark

the embers deep within our souls

as only we true lovers can?

Here I live within your love, your all

stay to ride a feeling to the shores of evermore

no skies can ever restrain this passion so

On the edge of where no heart could ever survive, alone

great love forged within such timeless embers, is born

In great love, heartbeats merge, a spider plans

when we melt, as only true lovers can...

Te Amo - I Love You

There is no love too small in this world, when there is a spark.

Great Love Seeks the Great Lover Within.

Great Lovers don't need to communicate in the usual ways. They just know, they just think as one and they love with a passion and energy that could melt the world. You do not seek such love, it seeks you. Desire and believe, but do not seek to find it, as it is an elusive love and will only be attracted to one who believes, is positive and confident and is prepared to give more than they expect to receive. True Love; I hope that it finds you, as it often does exactly that when you least expect it. Be prepared, as you will not get a hurricane warning.

Hi sofs, Thanks for reading this and being the first to comment on this work. I was beginning to think that maybe it was too raunchy, or the spider scared them, or it was just sub-standard writing there for awhile as nobody was prepared to leave a comment.

So sofs, you have restored my faith and done so with great comments and the good taste that I know you have. Thank you so much.. I am glad you enjoyed this poem.. as I really did enjoy writing it. The subject is great love.. it is one that so few write about. I hope that the state is not now lost to the busy and virtual lives that so many burden themselves with. Take care my friend and be well.

Hi Ruby, thank you for reading this poem and your kind words. I am glad that you enjoyed this work. If your mother knew such a love, then she will know that it never slips away. Irrespective of duration, it is a great love and as such is timeless and tied to the moments in which it was shared and felt. I hope you understand what I mean. May you also find it Ruby..take care.

Hi Someway, nice to see you are reading and enjoying my latest writings. Thanks for your support and for your kind words. Yes, deep indeed they are meant to be Someway, they are supposed to have the power to make a spider put down his net and look away, or to have the wind stop. Glad you like the possibilities... take care

PD, I'm so happy to see you publishing your special poetry here again. Reading your poems is like sipping honey colored brandy curled up on the sofa, pure bliss.

Great love, you've said it so well. Beautiful.

Hi there Candie, I'm really pleased that a few ladies with great taste have commented so tastefully on this piece. I'm glad that you enjoyed this poem - I really quite like it myself... when I read it aloud and slowly (as it was written :) ).. And if words like this can move hearts Candie, then I must write more - Hahaha.. hell that might kick-start my own! Take care and thanks for your heartbeat.

You are a hoot!! You need a kick start? I'm in doubt!!


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Thanks for that... but even Owls can't hold back time, I'm afraid that kick-starting may well be as certain as Lowell George's famous lyrics from waaaay back: "You know when you're over the hill... When your mind makes a promise that your body can't fill!"

Phew.. Lucky I still have total recall hahaha

Take care there... PD Over and Out.

Hi PDX, Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on this piece. I'm glad that you enjoyed this work - I enjoyed writing it and was a bit concerned that it would get flagged for exposing spiders to raunchy relationships! Cheers.. you take care

Well done Pearldiver. Thank you for writing of this love. With all that calls on our attention from this hectic world, if no one wrote of the deepest love, we would surely be lost, for we would've forgotten ourselves.

Peace

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Hi TK, thanks for that, though I fear you are being too kind here. Yes, I'm sure though that there are many who have never experienced such relationships and therefore don't know what we are talking about :)

Thanks for taking the time, I'm glad you enjoyed this work.. take care.

pearl, no problem. I always wonder what gets flagged on here and what doesn't. It almost seems arbitrary!

Cheers mate... yes it does at that, including some of my best. Take care.

well, when they flag me, if I don't wanna fix it, I just move it to my blog... triond flags everything I publish, so, i give up. I don't need any elitists in my life...


Pearldiver profile image

Pearldiver 4 years ago from Tomorrow - In Words & NZ Time. Author

Cheers PDX, yes I agree and have done that on occasion as I'm not so convinced that poets' creativity is so well understood by non poetry people on some sites. That's partially why I am selective in the numbers and styles that I publish here. Take care mate.

Pearl, I've started saving half of my poems for submissions in literary magazines and journals. I will eventually publish them all here on the hub, but they need to go through the requisite rejection process first :0)

Triond is stupid.

Hi Phyllis, thank you so much for your kind words... I'm glad that you enjoyed this piece and have experienced such a relationship... they do tend to show us a part and depth of us that we are generally not aware of and are almost impossible to replace! Thank you for taking the time and your follow... cheers... take care... PD

Bonjour mon ami LaThing, you have found another poem worthy of your positive review.. thank you for doing so and appreciating my writing and heart's pulse. 'We Melt' was an experimental change of writing style... I'm glad you liked it... the orb spider didn't and complained that I had not given sufficient mention to his ability to hold on while the earth moved! *~* hahaha... such is the power of the w-w-web... PD

LOL, well, the Orb spider should be happy he got mentioned at all in this, oh, so, romantic piece!! Maybe, you used him to capture the w-w-web :)

No, no, dragons don't care how spiders feel about their lot... after all, why would they abide the eaters of winged creatures? In reading this piece again... I noticed I had used those words you had sought... Te Amo - I guess not all guys can express it with the same accent... the mirror I had referred to was 'This True Test of Self - How Men Love' - that is about how scared men are to commit... in agreement with your hub, but from a guy's perspective instead... Glad you liked this one though.. it is a nice piece that I enjoyed writing... take care LaThing.
