Without A Touch - poem

Updated on December 23, 2012

(Begin the video first. The instrumental intro will give you plenty of time to read my work before enjoying one of my favorite songs of passionate love)

~~~~~~~~~


Do you believe in love at first sight? What about first word, first sound, first touch?

Is it possible to experience a moment of passion without a single touch? From across a table, a room, a time zone?

This is an exploration of passionate love.

Without A Touch


Without a touch
Two worlds collide

Without a sound
Explosion

Eyes wide
Words play

Thoughts meet
Minds open

Hands move
Fingers search

In dark
In light

Color
Black and white

Emotions mingle
Souls swirl

Heads spin
Hearts race

Put out there
Pulled inside

Without a touch
Two worlds collide

      Yep Hi YaTease:

      Without a moment

      Minds reach out and meet

      A single act a universal treat

      Where two is one and maths remains

      A distant symbol, mundane

      Where one is mush, much greater than two

      Engaged in a moment that is pure and true

      I get your moment and its gain

      I was in such a moments just insane

      Am still yet

      My one true blue

      Is greater yet than just us two

      This poem is so incredibly sexy, and beautiful... even the intro, and the question about love "accross a table, a room, a time zone????

      What an appropriate question to accompany that poetry... "without a touch, two worlds collide..."

      Simply beautiful... and yet so damn intense!!!!!

      You are definitely capturing your creativity here... Wow...

      I felt like I was let loose in space, floating timeless like a butterfly. Let loose to explore the inner workings of a heart. I was enchanted by the song you added here. I was standing, you were there, two worlds colliding. Never been torn apart the ultimate explosion of our worlds. I love this wonderful piece of art. Voted Up and shared.

      I read this yesterday and as I was about to comment the hubworld collided and crashed. I love the 'big- bang' as it is the basis of all the universe. Collision can be a good things, creates something new, ignites the heat of passion and the dust of change. Dark and Light, yin and yang, the world is full of such wonderful dichotomy.
