The Portrait of our Love

Indeed I have always loved you
Even before I ever laid eyes on you
My imagination has turned to fascination
My fascination has changed to infatuation
Pencil sketched on blank canvas is a love illusion
And the colours are about to run out of control

I will paint you steady
I will brush you ready
I long to consume a plate of our love
I dream of the honey taste of your kiss
That will set our hearts on a journey of joyful bliss
And the throbbing fragrance of your breath
Will linger in my soul like a roaring flame!
As I hold on tight to the letters of your name

Indeed I have always loved you
As I paint on canvas the portrait of our love
You say it all with your eyes
You say it all with your smile
My brush strokes softly study,
The lines of your naked body
You say it all with your stare
You say it all with your words
You say it all with your silence

I am an obsessed painter possessed
With the powers of your touch
And when the night turns into day
And black turns into that fearful smoking grey
I know I may still stand here and wait and wait
For that paint to dry while I am rock sky high!
As I paint us the portrait of our love

The edges of my heart this instance
Are wrapped around you daily waiting for a chance
The soul of my eyes are forever trapped in your trance
While I wait for the day when our two hearts will dance
I am imprisoned by your amorous charm
While I drink wine from the cup of our artistic romance
I want to sleep inside your warm embrace
With our naked bodies wrapped up with silky lace
Paradise is meant for our love portrait
And I will wait and wait for you to open your gate

My imagination is set out on tainted canvas
My fascination is high as if I have smoked grass
One second - lips to lips kiss
Two seconds - lips to lips kiss bliss
And it goes on and on
In the rain, snow and sun
And I know the love you give will last
As I forget about the heart breaks of the past
While I paint us the portrait of our love
This masterpiece will smile only with the sweetness of your kiss

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
