I am almost of a breaking
                 of a rise
              in temperature
    I am of these
             so closely

I am held back
        reined
    by convention
       caught

but how I could see
      myself in the cold waves
  bare bodied
            and swum through
with you


You may not know
   how I see you
   how my eyes
pick out the lights
in yours
and the crush of your smile

how it is not Beauty
      as the catwalk would covet
but the softest
    purity of trust

oh and how you collapse me
     and how I am bled
     of all safe lies
    around me
I am empty
     and you a tide to
rush me


   Me, the woman inside
you throw love to her
  Iím unable to catch it

show me

My god, girl !
This is BEAUTIFUL !
You have such a gifted talent.

I wanted to pick out a favorite
line ... but each of them holds
their own beauty.
Together ... this is a complete beauty.
Love ya'

My dear friend, I love the words you use to express yourself and the talent that you possess. Every line is beautiful!

and this......

how it is not Beauty
   as the catwalk would covet
but the softest
  purity of trust

how very important trust is

A very beautifully written piece!
*hugs*

Kamla, You never cease to amaze me with your talent to express...

"oh and how you collapse me
     and how I am bled
     of all safe lies
    around me
I am empty
     and you a tide to
rush me"

Just Wonderful!

how it is not Beauty
                    as the catwalk would covet
              but the softest
                  purity of trust

"the softest purity of trust" echoes through my mind  

beautiful Kamla dear beautiful!

Love this your ladyship
