Rich Raw Portrait Of Love

Her body now his,
His, wrapped in her arms,
Passion colors infused.

They lay there together,
Each brush stroke remembered,
Soul’s fresco their hues.

Soft cheek on his shoulder,
Her gazing so deeply,
Watercolor his eyes.

Then, single jeweled droplet,
His cheek downward coursing,
Chest heaving soft sighs.

Tint of life’s light,
Exposing his soul,
Night’s ink could not hide.

Tears welling release,
Sobs loosed from their prison,
Built deeply inside.

Her satin embrace,
Cradled him gently,
Watercolors now rent.

Embarrassed in weakness,
No man should be crying,
Spirit’s energy spent.

Neither sorrow nor pain,
Compelled tears release,
His sentiments bled.

Just joy for this woman,
Unworthiness feeling,
But him she still wed.

Hushed quiet of darkness
Nakedness joining,
No other mate dreamed of.

Together they weep,
Clasping richness forever,
Raw portrait of their love.

      1. Oh…you’ve made me smile…again.

        You’re very good at that…and, knowing how to make me blush when I read some of your “special” posts. 🙂

        So many thanks my friend. I wish for you a warm and safe Saturday evening!

      2. Thanks Bill. I actually drove an hour in a snowstorm to pick up a friend from the airport…. only to have the flight delayed twice (so far). So I’m poking around town trying to stay busy until this happens. Ugh…. not looking forward to the night-time snowstorm drive home…

        But… knowing you’ve smiled today yet again warms my heart.

      1. Well…no.

        I was a Submarine Commander in the US Navy for many, many years. Now, I have my own company…and I write to add another dimension to my life. Writing is my release.

        Does that make sense?

      2. Yes, that makes perfect sense..

        I wasn’t sure if you wrote in your down time or not back then.

        Well, you are doing really great at it !!

        I’ve been writing on and off since I was about 10 or 11.. I started out trying to write songs.. But then it turned more into poetry. But really that’s all music lyrics are is poems.

      3. Yes! Completely agree!!

        I’ve always loved music.. One on my favorite bands for the longest time was / and still is Pink Floyd .. Lol !

        I like a lot of the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s bands .. I find the lyrics to be really cool and different.

  1. tears only can flow when there is a feeling of being safe with someone, that your heart will be protected, I see how that can be in your words, when the softness overcomes all the tiredness, love flows with tears. need I say more, I like this very much
