You touch me with your words - Intense (a poem)

Updated on September 14, 2011

Intense - Your words touch me

Passionate words are heady and can sway you off your feet, words that blow your mind away and transport you into the clouds and among the stars. That is the power of the language of love. What power does reason and logic have before them? Can they stand their ground or will emotions have their way? Words seem to wrap their way around your heart and break your every resolve. The power of words is amazing, the power of love is even more amazing. It is fascinating to recreate and luxuriate in words of love. The magic of love never seems to fade.. no matter how old or young you are..... come experience it .. would you mind letting me know if it touched you....


Intense words

You touch me with your words,
Telling me of your love,
Filling my soul with music,
Forever and now!

You sing to me those songs,
Of fervent passion,
To hear them, my heart longs,
Singular words well chosen!

With a tender caress,
In its wings,
Your words express,
Sublime things!

A warmth so gentle,
Comes flooding in,
Stripping me of my resolve,
Turning me mushy within!

You charm me with your words,
In a deluge of intense feeling,
Profoundly aching inwards,
You captivate my being!

I see you mirrored in them,
As clear as glass, and plain
Words springing right out at me,
Driving me, completely insane!

Enticing words they are,
Enslaving delicately,
My mind is at war,
Should I surrender or flee?

What am I to do?
What am I to say?
Could I brush them away?
You have me in your sway!

      I guess they made you shimmer, eh? Words can do this. I have written a piece simply called 'words.' and dedicated it to a Friend. Now I am looking for someone else's and found you. Pretty alluring and enthralling poetry. Great work, shimmering Dawn!

      What a masterpiece!


      a flower smiled, a butterfly arrived, a light touch

      a chattering bee, chuckling sunflower, happy tears

      hummingbirds meet, a garden of strings, breezy hearts

      intensely intense, tangle of tangos, ocean symphonies

      now or never, to embrace or not, carpe diem!


      I'm inspired!
