Seventh Heaven

I like, your taste...
I like, your style...
I like the thoughts
behind your smile.

I like the cognition,
beyond your eyes.
Beyond your looks
I like your reprise.

You know me to well,
I need not say a word.
With one fleeting glance
my intentions are heard.

With one gentle caress
my passions unfold.
Transfixed in your kiss,
your love spell, takes hold.

Elation, mind racing...
Penetrating, breath taking
needing more... and more... of you.

Slipping deeper...
into your love.
Slipping deeper...
the surface above.

Succumbing, yielding,
giving in.
I am drowning, in you,
in sin...

    It is wonderful in its simplicity. Reads like a ditty.But is getting plunged in love identical with getting sunk in sin? That shows that the throatful ease with which the poem took off got choked in the last line.Poor poet. He could not get rid of the mundane values even at empyrean heights.The poet is not capable of ecstasy.Call this poem a satire? The legitimation of the last line is that one must not be enamoured of the other. Call this poem didactic? Quite a good poem because of its opaqueness (Report) Reply

    Is there a big difference between possessing a woman's body or a woman's soul? … Or maybe both? …
    Is there more or less to a Seventh Heaven if there is one such? Your poem to me raised intriguing questions, thank you for share. (Report) Reply

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
