Chosen By

Updated on November 3, 2011

Chosen by a hemline that strangled my restraint

Chosen by a blush, a light red so softly faint

Chosen by the sound of murmuring desire

Chosen by a spark that transformed decorum into fire

Chosen by a pedicure that scratched the right place

Chosen by the perfect light that caressed a perfect face

Chosen before time knew that it had passed me by

Chosen despite the truth, despite each little lie

Chosen from the very first all-knowing wink

Chosen with the help of a few, well-timed drinks

Chosen by the fortune teller that promised me back then

She made me wait forever, she never told me when

Chosen by the lessons that past lovers taught

Each kiss led to insight, despite the damage wrought

Chosen by the practice that made perfect over the years

Ready and willing, learned at the school of flowing tears

Chosen by the tingle of anticipating skin

Chosen by the sweet choice of where I could begin

Chosen by the pause just before the gushing flood

Drowned at sea, crashed upon the beach of love

Chosen by the ink as it stroked the paper’s flesh

Chosen by each line, and each signature caress

Chosen by the melody that was hummed before I knew

The words would only come once inspired by you

Chosen by a scent that spun me ‘til I could not stand

Chosen by Cohen’s songs, I told you I’m your man

Chosen by the untamable laughter which we would share

Chosen even before I saw the soothing smile that you wear

Chosen by a quivering lip, trembling at the thought

Of hope coming to fruition, of that so often sought

Chosen by the simple touch, by unintended bliss

Chosen by an opportunity fate would not have me miss

Chosen by a life of dreams, none ever so real as this

Chosen by unanswered prayers I thought that God had missed

Chosen by every poet’s muse, from now until the end

Chosen by sympathetic nature, which chose my heart to mend

Chosen by your well wishes, when mine had gone away

Chosen by what might become on some far distant day

Chosen by a dance that moved me into your arms

Chosen by an embrace that keeps my heart so warm

Chosen by the heels, that led to your legs,

Chosen by the lines that made me want to beg

Chosen by impulses that I could not resist

Chosen by the heat and sweat that filled the air with mist

Chosen by the neck that longed to be bitten

Chosen from the first time I saw you too were smitten

Chosen and chosen willingly, I did not put up a fight

Chosen by each and every long and sweet endless night

Chosen by the desire to not have to choose at all

Chosen by the rhythm of love surviving after the fall

Chosen by the unhidden truth of what was meant to be

Chosen, one for one…. I for you and you for me.

      Great CHOICE of material G1.. Have you noticed that some have so much choice in their lives that they freeze and don't move on... while others perceive that they have none and work tirelessly in an effort to find a better set of choices in their lives. I will leave links all over the net for those ones... they will (like me) be taken aback with the huge selection of really, really good choices you have listed here! Such a Skite!! :D
