How do we express the split second?

The moment loves bliss jumps out of your eyes into mine

Smooth edges butterflying down into the heart of us

Pushing pulses and surges into one another

And everything that is you tries to escape

Escape into each others safe keeping

When a lovers dream comes true

And there it is

Closer than a heart or physical body can bare or bend

That shared stare in a cradling silk wind

Love has taken us and formed us from friends

Magnetic lips closer to life, closer than we’ve ever been

No sex, no sin, no chance to lose, no chance to win

Just us forever more, now and forever again and again

Coming closer for the kiss

This seals us without empty words or shattered promises

But swears from the property of our soul and cuts us deep under the skin

Sowing two parts into one blood from one love and only then

Promises on crossing hearts and kisses can truly blend

Into one split second of time patching all prior heartaches

 Loves lips make a kiss from our soulful fabric

 Fabric that had been torn and tattered

No longer does any single love before matter

Touching your soft tongue I know

I will be with you in your old

My lips pressed against the wrinkles of your soul

And I can’t wait to see how beautiful

We are

.

Without all those love scares

You are a true romantic my friend You might like the song "Something Grown Together" by the Flobots... puts me in mind of this The plunge we take often goes unnoticed until much later... you did a good job of capturing it... along with a sense...

So I'll repost my previous comment that has dissipated into cyber-ether... "I usually say that it is almost impossible to use the words love, kiss, heart, and soul in a love poem because of how overused those words are. But your language is so...

So I'll repost my previous comment that has dissipated into cyber-ether... "I usually say that it is almost impossible to use the words love, kiss, heart, and soul in a love poem because of how overused those words are. But your language is so unique with many thought provoking metaphors that you have met the challenge. Very well done!"

Thank You immeasurably Joshua, I remember you said in the past, that the best poems come from allowing the emotions to swell up within us and just pour them out. This seems to working for right now ( a write from the heart instead of the head)...

Thank You immeasurably Joshua, I remember you said in the past, that the best poems come from allowing the emotions to swell up within us and just pour them out. This seems to working for right now ( a write from the heart instead of the head) However I hope in the near future to merge the two into one for that more metaphorphic effect. thanks again my capitan.
