Closer, still closer to your skin,
Only inches separating
A crystal moment we're in
Alas, we can do nothing

Holding back; its not the time
Leaving but a trace of a clue
As my pulse higher it climbs
It's hard keeping my hands off you

A moment shared in connection
A prelude of things to come
My mind and body in tension
To all else my senses numb

Daring to speak with my fingers
Cryptic meaning, but to you is known
Like the scent of perfume, it lingers
Now aching more to be alone

Electric tingling within me
Your softness felt, just a while
No one senses the energy
The sole hint is your smile

Closer, still closer to your skin,
Only inches separating
A crystal moment we are in
Alas, we can do nothing

This was just some offhand poetry I wrote to him in one of our letters, but since this site is for all my poetry, I thought I'd post it. It's a little long, but I hope you like it. Tell me what u think.

hi, love
I'm pretty much at a loss for words.
my deepest feelings u have stirred
and things I thought could not be true
come real because I'm loved by you.
and if anyone should pay back,
it's me. There's nothing you lack.

This isn't exactly quality verse
And words couldn't show how immersed
I am in everything that's you;
These words will always be too few.
But anyway, I'm in a poetic mood
I think tonight I'll sleep nude
(That's just some extra info
To remind you of what you're in for)
Anyway back to my point
(Do I end joint? Anoint? Loins?)

Where was I? Oh yeah, I'm speechless
Don't believe me? Ok, I confess
I'm only blank when it comes to you
You know how weird I am around you
With those wrists, who wouldn't?
I tried not to look, but couldn't.
So? Who cares if I'm crazy
The rest of the world is a hazy
Distorted place to me.
You're the one who loves me, for me

The way you make me laugh out loud
You've got me floating on a cloud
And how loving and sweet you get
Everything else, I tend to forget.
let the world lie in the gutter,
for all I care. They're all nutters
What matters is we're together
You know that's not about to change ever.

To me, there is only us
The others can get hit by a bus
(Sorry, couldn't get another rhyme
not a bad idea, in fact, I'm
rather excited by the thought
of a bus knocking off the entire lot)
As the hospitals get healing,
Let's talk of these fabulous feelings
Like how good that day, you smelled,
Like how holding your hand felt,
Like how I'm waiting for the day
You sing to me "happy birthday",
Like how your every letter
Has me feeling tons better,
And how I can't get enough
Of drowning in your love.

Each day you make more beautiful
Just thinking of you is wonderful
And I love dreaming all night
About us. Though some dreams might
Be a little weird but hey,
A girl doesn't meet a guy like you everyday
So I guess the dreams just add on
(Like that one, we're kissing on the lawn)
To the awesome, deep feelings you bring
I'm flying so high(that too without wings!)

Hey, I think I've got to go
But without you, life's such a bore
Anyway I guess I've blabbed for a while
I hope by now, I've made you smile
(If not, just do it now
Yup, u got it, that's how)
So bye, for now,I'll see you
You know forever I'll love you
And like we always say
Still waiting for that someday....


when language like bubbling streams flow

when words are laid down to fit like lovers' hands

when you feel the essence of the poet from within

when swirling thoughts are caught in the net of rhythm

when images reel as you read

when pen and paper create a symphony

then, it is poetry
