Welcome to My Poetry Site
I can feel the way you feel about love
A long rainbow-coloured Perseid flew
Across the sky and as it did so an excited
Hand found mine and squeezed tightly. A
Passionate heart stood beside me. I didn't
know her yet, but somehow I knew I soon
Would, for standing in the dark surrounded
By other stargazers, I could feel the way
She felt About love.
'Oh, I'm so sorry,' she said, 'No need at all,'
I quickly interjected, adding that I too felt
Much the same way and I was glad of her
Hand, 'something special to celebrate
Something special,' I added with a smile.
It was just an exchange of numbers but
Somehow more than that, for back home
I could still feel her hand in mine, still feel
Her standing beside me, was that Citrine
Blossom or Flowerbomb? She held my
Hand all night and all through the next day.
Maybe she'd squeezed too tight and the
Sensation would pass in a day or two, but
No, she was still with me by weekend and
Anyway, I'd got used to having her around
Now - I didn't want her to let go.
I finally got up the nerve to give her a call
and we talked late into the night. The
Telegraph wires loved her voice and so did
I, soft sweet and ever so sexy, and I loved
her heart too, for where had I heard a beat
Like that before only in my own. Her heart
Sang to me over the wires and it was then
I said for the first time, 'I can feel the way
You feel about love,' she laughed and
Blew me a kiss.
'I can feel the way you feel about love' I
Repeated, scolding myself later. Oh God,
Had I said the wrong thing, was I too
Foreward too early? I didn't know.
Well, no, it appears I wasn't too forward at
All for two days later, I found myself in a field
At midnight with a beautiful woman. A perfect
place for two stargazers to spend their first
Date. From the moment we sat down her hand
Found mine. It was almost as though she'd
Never let go of me since that beautiful star-
Studded evening when fate took a hand and
Drew us together.
For a while we just lay there in the cool of the
Night holding hands, the occasional lightning
Bug adding to the starry display when, call it
My imagination, I realised I could feel this
Woman, not just laid beside me, but in the air
Around me, she was suddenly everywhere
And I could feel the way she felt about love,
About me, about what was about to happen
In the next ten seconds. She came on like a
Meteor shower, crackling static in the air,
Love's Ozone filling my airways, my lungs,
As she rolled over into me pulling me to her
Leaving me with no option other than to take
What was mine to take.
Stunningly beautiful blue/green eyes
Searched mine for answers. Did I love her?
My God, how could I not? She let go my
Hand to button her dress and yet my
Hand told me she was still holding it. It
Was then I knew she had become a vital
Part of me, a part I could not live without.
I was hers and she was mine. Searching
The sky she pointed to Gemini the Twins
And said, 'That's us from now on,' and as
That look came back into her smoldering
Eyes, I knew I had guessed right, I really
Could feel the way she felt about love.
