Alive Once Again


Every time I am with you, the cold world fades away. Nothing else really matters. I cling on what you say. Your voice speaks to me gently, like a wonderful summer breeze. Your breath’s upon my neck making me… go weak in the knees. I gaze into your eyes, which restore peace within my soul. All the pain of my past is fading. Fading. No longer, will I pay its toll. In you I see wonder, kindness, and love. You promise to stand beside me, even in front of me to protect me, when things get too tough. Every day you are with me, I discover you deeper inside my mind. Somehow you have broken down my walls. I start to shed my doubts and fears, leaving them all behind. Darkness falls and we lay in each other’s arms. Skin touching. Hearts melting. We are entangled together by each other’s charm. You are more than my lover. You are more than my friend. You are who I want forever, my soul mate till the end.

Poetic form, prose.

Poetic device, internal rhyme.

This poem actually leads into another poem I wrote for dVerse. Read this one first though as it will explain the depth of feeling of the character in the next poem I post. (Which is scheduled to post at noon today. So the link will work by then…tick tock….)
