My Surrender
~My Surrender~
Lamia-L.jpg picture by blueyedsoul_cindy
What is it that makes me seek you out?
Looking for you to appear somewhere in my day
Why do I long for your warmth and presence?
When you are so far away
And when you surprise me out of the blue
Why does my heart ripple like a pebble across a placid pond?
You opened a gate I thought was forever closed
Making me believe in the power of love
And when you unlocked the poetry of my soul
Dismantling these walls of stone
Stripping me of every defense
My utter vulnerbility revealed
I fell so helplessly
In love with you

Writing humour is difficult, taking on a Love Poem in the face of all those great poems that have gone before and finding a new edge to the subject is extremely difficult. I can only write on the subject through metaphor not in the first person. So this is a good poem, in my humble opinion because of its narrative style. The sound and metre make it sincere and the reader is in no doubt you have written it from experience. Where you use metaphor itís very clear what you mean. I like it.. Its a good poem.

Why does my heart ripple like a pebble across a placid pond?...only a master can craft such lines.  this is a beautiful work of art crafted by one whose talents are unequalled.  your imagery sweeps away your reader, pushing him to yearn to be the object of such affection...

Yer box was full, which could be a good thing, depending on the type of box...Here's my response to your comment..I think Richard's comment where he said he was about to hurl very satifying...If something like this doesn't offend SOMEBODY, then I didn't go over the top enough...len

Give in to me now, you can't resist,
you became mine the moment we kissed.
Getting through your gate was easy to do,
finding your heart was the key to get through.
So many years you built up that wall,
with just one kiss that wall did fall.
My victory was in your surrender,
come with me now, I'll love you tender.

I love this Cindy, terrific write hun, Joe
