Gentle Words

Updated on July 10, 2011

Gentle words caressed my spirit,

sang a song of sweet desire.

Tender words of passion whispered

set my lonely heart afire.

The fire flickered soft and graceful,

a dance of sensual delight...

inspired dreams so long abandoned

that held me long into the night.


Words of love embraced me gently,

touched a heart so long denied,

brought to life a hidden longing

to which my spirit then replied...

"Your gentle words caressed my spirit,

lit a flame of sweet desire..

Your tender words of passion whispered,

set my very soul afire."

      .....well it seems that Doug and I are the two best dressed men at the Hub - lol lol lol - and he basically took the words right out of my mouth (like he always does - lol) ...but the reason why your words are so gentle and endearing is an easy one - you have such a gentle and endearing soul inside you!!!!

      Prose poetry. You are a woman of diverse talents. I get the sense you are British, but I may be wrong. Your handle of the language leads me to believe this. I don't mean to rule out Americans, Canadians, or Aussies -- it's just the feeling I get. Well done and cheers.
