Love Intimacy - Poem by Paul Sebastian

One night, I knocked your door
You opened welcoming me
We had tea and some spaghetti
We talked, fact-finding, no more

We communicated at head-level
Cautious, afraid to get to heart level
The path we treaded was graveled
It was boring, yet our talk-traveled

Wooden heart doors stayed closed
Void of gut-level real communication
Defensively scrapping for information
Sharing was volunteered, not forced

Hours passed, topic after topic
Your hidden heart, wish I knew
To know you is to touch the real you
Whilst skirting, we were not affective

Let's share our likes and dislikes
Share our wants and needs
Wander into future dreams
Self-disclose our moods and vibes

Why not be unafraid, be real?
Is opening up, to share, a risk?
In knowing you, I begin to trust
Being real, you cannot be unreal

Trusting someone is a choice
To love someone is a choice
Gift of oneself is a choice
Happiness path is a choice

Love is intricately weaved
Through gentleness and kindness
Through patience and forgiveness
Unconditional love breeds

Love, endures weather of life
Love is to last life long
Love lives life beyond
Intimacy keeps love-life alive

    Wow! How beautifully you've illustrated this thing called relationships. The fear of risking, yet braving through and discovering the greatest gift of all...LOVE. Paul, congratulations on Poem Of The Day! Very Well Deserved! (Report) Reply

    Congratulations for the well deserved poem of the day Paul. I guess fear prevents us from exposing our real feelings. Fear of our feelings not being reciprocal and that it may ruin a good friendship is right up there with not being able to open up to another person due to fear of being hurt or disappointed. An interesting write from start to finish. Thank you Paul. (Report) Reply

    You said it
    More than love, it is the intimacy which keeps the love-life keep going. Not only love-life, but every sphere of life. Love may be peripheral but intimacy is the core. But for this line, the poem would have fallen to just another love poem among the lot. Nice to have been selected as the poem of the day. (Report) Reply
