Rhapsody


My breath, catching fast
In the clasp of his arms
Somehow continued to deliver,
Through miraculous means,
The air, sweet and steaming,
Flowing into my chest, love's river.

Now I, surely dreaming,
Could make not a move
Nor quiet my heart from its thunder
As I turned to him, willing,
My lips full and yielding,
Soft sanctuary, inviting his plunder.

Though as he drew near, so
His aching came clearer, yet
His eyes filled with mindful regard,
For he knew that his soul
Would at last make mine whole.
My lover, my poet, my bard.

Flowing like rivers. Love it.

Meadowmuse, this is excellent. Any man would be proud to have this written about him. Very delicate and yet strong. I like it very much.
