Treasure Island

Uriah Hamilton

Adoration Of The Feminine

In the valley of forbidden dreams,
I see my heart explode
At the feet of a Queen;
My pulse rate increases
At a merciless speed.
I’m more accustomed to shadows
Than lingering in exotic eyes
Where my soul undrapes
Every protective layer of disguise,
But I’m here on bended knees
In adoration for the feminine
Wanting to be the indebted servant
To the perfumed blouse,
To the soft lips of whispered secrets
And the enchanted kiss,
I lay wounded in ecstasy
And will disappear
Into the background of her mirror
As she brushes her shimmering hair.

    this one made me realize...that only a few men in life...know Queens when they see them.
    and you are one of those. i respect that very much.

    Oh, Uriah. Your eternal sweetness and shameless adoration will always melt my twitterpated heart. I lie in reverence - smitten and humbled at the foot of every poem

    You are a true gentleman, and I for one love you for it. Thank you for being you, and for sharing your beautiful spirit with the rest of us.

    Yes, to be the servant of love is much desired, even to the point of self-abasement. Very erotic and surrendering. Indeed we should all worship the feminine aspect of divinity much more, and through it treat each woman in our lives as if she, herself, were the Goddess. Lovely write.

    All the best,

    This is beautiful, any woman who wouldn't fall at your feet for saying this would have no pulse of their own.

    I love the little pieces of what it is to be feminine that you capture in your poems....the perfumed blouses, the tinkling of bracelets etc. I love how you see the beauty so clearly. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    Hey, Uriah, sing this beautiful, passionate, enrapturing piece of writing to Miss X and tell me if she doesn't let you make love to her on the spot! ! ! : -) Warmly, Gina. (Report) Reply

    Absolutely adored it, Uriah. A very romantic and alluring pull into the musteries of the heart and just how enraptured people can get in them. (Report) Reply
