Intensity

Lori LockHeart

The first time your midnight dark eyes melted with my sky blue ones,
I felt it.
And to this day, no one has ever looked at me with the same intensity.

I think I became a woman in that one heart-piercing instant.
And our hearts, souls, and minds have forever since been intertwined.

I needed what you gave me.  
The confidence, strength and willfulness that leaves you breathless.

You are a friend.
Yet the looks that pass between us are a telling clue
To the fierce and passionate closeness that I have always had  with you.

I know what I do to you, in friendship and in lust.
And that urge is your hold on me, your intensity.

Being with you is like laughing, crying, living and dying.

And yet with all that uncertainty comes a sense of comfort.

It will always be like this.
Neither circumstances, nor time will ever break this connection.
Itís unexplainable.

That moment, this feeling, and your presence
Will be in my mind, heart, and soul forever.
It has undeniably become a part of me - my essence.

The essence of this woman is a secret
To those closest to her.

Except for you.
You know.

I am so grateful for your intensity.
You can see what all it has done for me.

Lori~
The essence of your 'Intensity' permeates the air ... beautiful fragrance wafting.

Do they sell it?  Well, they should !
This is lovely.

now your scaring me ...*smile*
wow...this is so amazing here...
your writng is exceptional...
you nailed the intensity...
and the gifts that comes with this kind of connection,
and I am taken back with how you have written my own heart in this...
now I understand your reply to my "baby" poem...and I know you understand that poem.

you have mirrored his effect on my life to the letter...

with one slight exception...
his eyes were green...*smile*
oh and mine are brown  
thanks for sharing this...
take care,jm

 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

This is writing at its best...reminded me of a few looks I have received lately...but none as intense as these it seems.   James
