The Undertaking

observe me
watch how i do things
understand my processes
my emotional movements
when you know them
you know me

engage me
find my compliance buttons
enjoy and revel in them
watch me emerge
to take a leap
of faith again

when you try
to live in my world
in the way i need
a bold, loud statement resonates inside
telling me you hear me
you’ve chosen to honor my being

Hitting The Right Notes

Bryan Adams – Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?

the ripples of love
echoing within us
resemble the melody
of a good song
one felt deeply
and in each cell
of our being

touching
caressing
inviting
opening
flooding
… our senses

filling us with an excited calm
expanding our knowing
of the joy in being together
the price paid for love
is a release into it passionately
with purpose and commitment

fulfilling the needs freely
understanding your partner
it leads us to intensity and happiness
this pursued connection
forged in needing bliss for ourselves
this profound reward we seek eternally

Being In The Density

sharing space
with another
honestly
requires more than love

it’s a willingness
to let go
of one’s shield
diligently erected

a wanting
to feel the richness
of another’s essence
perhaps damaged

a deep need
to be enmeshed
on all the levels
partners wish to be seen

it’s a pact
for the happiness
of the other
in this dance of two beings

Hot Again, Not Again

Untitled

love hot
then awry
smooth and gellin
then rage and yellin
deep expressions of amore
trampled hurt feelings are telling
of the up, down, left, right, inside and out
this relationship changes at a fever pitch from good to bad and back

let me get off this ride

 

 

My Precious

Inspired by What Do You See – 5/14/19

 

All the steps I take
for your comfort
I do without complaint.

You deserve my love
and attention,
you shall not have to wait.

May my efforts sustain you
and this commitment
be your protection.

I’ll keep you from harm,
ensuring your growth.
And I’ll rise to meet you.

When I make the effort
to dig deep
into who you are,
know you are loved.

In awe,
inspired,
captivated,
interested,
dazed,
uplifted.
Yes, in love with your being.

I’ll align myself
up close,
breathing in your talent
and exhaling
knowledge and pride.

You’ve won my heart.

The gift of time, effort, and quality is love.
Intimate sincerity landing softly in the heart.

I’m not receiving what you think you’re giving.

Maybe you don’t understand what love is?
Maybe I don’t know how to receive it?
Maybe I expect too much?
Maybe you don’t give enough?

Maybe I was wrong?
