Old school lover

I’m an old-school type of lover.

A girl who prefers being chased and tried

Rather than pursuing you myself…

 

I want the romance where we catch each other’s curious glances,

Across the room your eyes peeking over the edge of a novel.

My eyes meet yours, and for a second…

We gaze. Into a ceaseless sea of mystery…

 

A love that in an instant, sparks a flame.

An utmost rarity in any reality;

An idyllic scene of modern Shakespeare,

When once enemies, we are now lovers…

 

I’m an old-school type of lover,

Whose affections must be earned.

Not merely sought, but chased after!

A love that relentlessly burns…

 

A love one only finds in books.

A love so scarce and so special.

That’s the love I’ve always wanted;

An old-school type of love…

    (I don't know what to say
    I read your beautiful hymn of a poem
    and my poetic mind, wanted to word my appreciation by writing a few scribbled lines
    and these words below
    are what I found, waiting
    to be voiced..
    thank you! for inspiring me
    and for sharing, what is
    such a warm read
    in the bitter cold of winter)
    'take it slow, do it right
    cherish
    our gifted chance
    at love;
    you'll demonstrate
    your please and thank you's
    decades, into our marriage
    with evergreen zeal
    and I
    will remind you
    every chance, I get
    you chose right
    when you placed that ring
    on my hand,
    all the way
    till our story's end, my love;
    I'm waiting
    please, take your time
    only arrive when you're ready
    but still, come quick
    I don't want too many, Winter's
    in my life
    without you, by my side'
