Weeps In Estascy


Adjacent to my left hand,
yours, on the table,
my skin hot and quivering,
anticipation so strong. . .
my will all but dies

to touch you,

yet I dare not move -

desire . . .
oh, desire
crawls up my spine,
clutches my soul,
squeezes my heart,
pounds in my temples -

Adjacent to my left hand,
your right one moves,
brushes mine . . .

oh my,

oh, my . . .

oh . . . my soul
weeps in ecstasy.

As I was reading this I was thinking about the chemistry which was paramount between myself and my first wife. She was so beautiful I was slightly intimated, and that is how I read this poem. Yes, I can still recall the electricity which surged into my body when our hands touched as we sat talking at her mother's dining table. Beautiful memories, yes, yes, indeed.

It's absolutely amazing what the simple act of brushing someone's hand can do, isn't it?  Love this my friend.

I could feel the tingle running up your arm.  Oh my, indeed.  Nicely done.

Jerry - not the first electrical surge I've ever had around women -- now, ater many years of marriage, it's not exactlty a surge, but an everlasting current…

suthern - Thank you my friend, for the awesome light of your smile . I bask in its glow.

Amaryllis - That you would feel it, brings life to the words. Thank you.

Nicole - It, is, isn't it - and having you notice means a lot to me.

Michael - That you could feel the tingle, means the words I chose, worked, and you more than read - you experienced (and that's the name of the game )/

Alison - Thank you Alison - I'd happily strain your oatmeal!

Margherita - You see beauty in everything, my friend, no matter how marred it may be, and that makes you an angel of the first order. Bless you.

Juju - Ah, I read your work and wish I could emulate your way with words; having you like this warms my heart.

Very nice writing, J.
Visualized the scene, vivid emotion,
a perfection in poetry!

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,and with all your mind. Love your neighbor as yourself.
