Oh! Sweet longing what have I forgotten
Fair beauty what do you mean to me
Hot passion, speak of where the heat comes from and, do we burn if we hold it in
Sighing tender affection never a complaint of imperfection. As a spot endears, does not spoil a flawless complexion.
Soft lips that do not bruise fragile love, what can you say to me
Sensual caress what is your worth, how can anyone be so touched
Noble spirit what do you give, giving, then what is left
Gentle heart what art do you bring to life beside the bones and flesh you hide beneath

  • Comment from author about the poem: I began writing this yesterday and sent a half complete version to my beautiful muse and she insisted it was finished...within the hour...or thats what I might have, promised. So I can now share it with you MPS friends. One line is more her work than mine but I completely agree with her now it's done. I will try something other than love tomorrow, maybe. If I post video links I do try and post music that goes with the mood of the piece so worth hitting play before you start to read. Thanks for visiting!

    "Gentle heart what art do you bring to life beside the bones and flesh you hide beneath" that was then I took a breath of relief!!

      Glad you found something in it my friend! Been reading a lot of old poetry which, haha seems to have influenced my wording. Thanks for the read and comments Dan

      At your first line, the title of a song came to my mind: 'Ah, sweet mystery of life, at last I've found thee'. Dunno why exactly. And I don't know much of it beyond the title.
      But Mario Lanza sings one of the versions of it. Was one of my Mum's favourite singers.

        I'll look that up later orchidee, thanks for reading and commenting.

      • Fay Slimm.

        A wonderful scent of foreverness pervades the read of this tribute to gentle Love Written. Sensual dignity in every line makes this a piece to read again ......... so into my list of faves its flavour goes.

          Thanks for your lovely feedback once more Fay, glad it is a favourite. I kind of pictured myself trying to write a love sonnet with writers block and it seemed to work out ok!

        • ANGELA & BRIAN

                brilliantly well crafted, couplets weaved seamlessly aside off-rhyming stanza's and all wrapped in the warmth of love's poetic integrity, to keep it all flowing from your imagination's ink onto our mind's tongue: effortlessly

                  Thank you very much for reading and leaving me your impressions L. B. I'm thoroughly unschooled in poetic structure so it is wonderful to learn more here.
