I’m so close to you And I am feeling things I’ve never Felt before. I might be shaking But it's not out of fear. So close to you I can feel your breath Slyly caressing my lips and I am loving every bit of it. I am melting like butter In an overheated pan As desires slowly turn up The heat. Our bodies are like glazed donuts Under the intensity Of this increasing heat. This slow sultry moment Has stifle speech, You don’t need to say A word because I can read every word In your eyes. We are so close I can feel your heart beating For mine, I might be trembling But I am not scared. I am Surrendering to the commands Of this sultry moment.
Forever in My Heart
It’s the place I want you to stay, Forever in my heart. It’s the way I want you to feel, Forever in my love. With every single breath, I take, With every step I make, You are the one Who holds my heart. In this place, I want you to stay, At peace and ease, Forever in my heart, And always with my love.
I know the stars Love your presence As much as I do. Because on those nights When you are not here With me They don’t come out To play, They play hide and seek With the clouds, and They don’t shine brightly. I know the stars Love your presence As much as I do. Because when we are Under the night skies together, They create a blanket for us, They create milky ways, They shape themselves Into constellations and They twinkle with extra brightness. I know the stars Enjoy your company As much as I do, Because they show it.
It’s Your Smile
Every day I commute In a world punctuated by Some wonderful smiles. But it’s your smile that Stands out to me, It’s your smile that Does unspeakable things to me, It’s your smile That pours so much joy Into my whole being. In an endless field of smiles Yours still glows the brightest, Yours still commands and Keep my attention, Your smile knows how To speak my heart’s language.
I remember that first night Under the soothing moonlight That chased the darkness away; Long enough For us to see Beneath the facades, Long enough For us to see The genuineness Of the love underneath it all. Amidst past hurt And debilitating pain That love germinated, Amidst doubts and uncertainties And lingering fears That love bloomed. The love grew. I remember those nights Under moonlit skies when Our love lit up the starry skies Right in front of our eyes.
Some girls have The body That would have guys Going 100 MPH on the highway And still taking suicidal chances For a prolonged backward stare. Some girls have the wittiness And charisma to engage Some men intellectually While scaring others off. Some girls are so Spiritually gifted That they bring nothing but Pure blessings into your life. But you, You are different. You all these things Fashioned into one.
Smile Like the Morning Sun
There is a particular place In the clear sky Where the morning sun Always reaches, Pauses… And smile a smile That reminds me So much of yours. I feel and see your smile Daily In the warmth Of the morning sun.
I Will Carry Your Smile
I’ve learned the value of carrying Your smile in my heart, to turn it on When my life gets dull. When things get unbearably tough, Your smile is my go-to Source of relief and comfort. The glow of your smile Illuminates my moments In ways beyond your imagination. Thanks for adding life and light To my days With your angelic smile.
The Delicious Wait
This might sound crazy, But there is a certain pleasure In watching you from a distance, And soaking up all Your countless goodness Without you knowing it. Its like living next door To a master chef and you get To smell his mouthwatering cooking Daily. He entices your taste buds with His skilful blending of ingredients That permeates the atmosphere, And you can’t help but wait With finger-licking anticipation And a watering mouth For the time to dine At his buffet table. As crazy as this may sound, There is a delectable feeling Just watching and waiting For that day when I get to dine At your dinner table. I am salivating!
A Walking Contradiction
On the outside She is as gorgeous as The Cinderella at the ball. But on the inside She is the Cinderella That the step sisters despise And spit on. She is a walking contradiction, An enviable specimen Of female grace and elegance, On the outside, But on the inside, She is a tarnished soul With sordid and pain-filled memories.
Don’t Blame Me
Please don’t blame me. I see your face In every flower I see, Just because their beauty Reminds me so much of you. Please don’t blame me For this. Don’t blame me when I hear the sweet sound Of your voice in the singing birds Up in the mango tree, The sound of their voices calms My spirit just like your voice does, Please don’t blame me. Please don’t blame me When I pass by roses and Their sweet and uplifting fragrance Brings a smile to my face And joy fills my heart. Somehow mother nature Finds a way to mimic your uniqueness And your beauty in so much Of her essence and innate beauty.
Captivated-You got my attention
You got my attention she seized my senses and held me captive with her facile charm. her smile oozes it's way into the crevices of my imagination and there it activated all my dormant longings.
Oh, baby she is a spine-tingling, toe-curling, mouth-watering, imagination- exploding promiscuous kind of girl. she leaves me gasping for elusive breath in the middle of this sweltering day.
The first time I felt your love, I knew my life was about to change. Back then I didn't know much About true love, But I knew I wanted more. The first time I felt The beat of your heart I felt the rhythms of love. It compelled me to dance To its rhythmic beat, It was everything I ever wanted, And I will never let it go.
