The Way Of Your Beauty - Poem by Thoughts of a Single Man

I know what you want

I know what you need

better than you do

for the essence of beauty runs deeper

than mere reflections in glass

it is the rubies that are found

in the treasure chest of the soul

where desires flourish

flying free like the diagram of chance

unheralded whispers

on the winds of dying romance

where the doves cry no more

and angels hold the battered close

within the comfort of their precious wings

such are the things created

by the yearning heart

the churning of the art

that is crafted without the touching palm

but sought in the thinking mind

I see you when you dream

and hear you so clearly

in the silence when you scream

for another

that sacred touch

that leads to the bond of life's circle

no mere sweating bodies

and skin upon sheets

but the quiet moments

where words are spoken

with no audible note

songs written and plucked

on the harp strings of feathered hope

for this is where I find you

for I know where you go

and I must follow

as your beauty leads the way

lost in the endless images

that dance so preciously

in the corridors of my mind

and etched forever on the wall

of my scripting heart

    Lovely and very romantic. A THING OF BEAUTY IS A JOY FOR EVER - John Keats. A well articulated poem written in poetic diction. A nice one indeed. Thanks for sharing and do keep it up. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply

    simply nice poem, but when we write a poem we have to concentrate on that and when we do other things we have to concentrate on that! Mingling these two, I think not so good, particularly the person we are with, can't understand what we speak poetically! (Report) Reply
