If romantic moods require delight
then must your embrace inspire delight.

I live for the time I might know your touch.
The rush of your touch is dire delight.

Magic enchantment is cast by your words.
Your silken voice sets afire delight.

My mind is jaded by all that I see.
Lost in your eyes I find higher delight.

Yours is the love I've dreamed of all my life.
Your mind eclipses all prior delight.

I can hear the musical quality to this one, it makes me want to  sing....can you hear it?

"The rush of your touch is dire delight .."

Love the use of "dire" and "delight" together ... they are seemingly unrelated, but it makes them all the more effective when you put them together!

Ah Dream, this is musically magical!  I agree with all that was stated above!  I just wanted to keep reading, it was so fresh - like spring air, to my soul. Thank you for sharing probably one of my favorites of yours!  Back to the top for more to enjoy!  ***curtsies

Dear dream, you are engaged in much romantic rambling at present - I for one am inclined to agree that it suits you.

- keep rambling, you do it well!

Interesting use of words in this one..and there's a cadence to it that flows nicely from one verse to another...

I echo all the above Scott, a beautiful read indeed.

For those interested, the poem format I used is called a ghazal. It is a format from Iran (10th Century B.C.). It also follows the radif convention, meaning that the phrase or words just preceeding the end refrain (delight) must rhyme in each second line of every couplet. The word "ghazal" actually means "talking to women."

Hmmm, honestly Scott the repitition here doesn't work for me, but there is some very effective imagery...
"The rush of your touch is dire delight."
and
"My mind is jaded by all that I see.
Lost in your eyes I find higher delight."
