Modesty Prevents...

Modesty Prevents...



Modesty prevents detailed comment

But I must say something to you

For I have touched the sky my love

When we danced the waltz of touch


I did not think to ever reach

The door to sweet Heaven above

A journey taken by but a few

That would leave us sated -- silent


When we made love we moved as one

Our rhythm slow but searching

Urging the pace to ever race


Blood building pressure in my ears

I feel faint cannot continue

Sweet release Nirvana reached

Alistair, It is true, for the secrecy of love can be alluring but the longing to shout "I love you" burns inside the heart.  "Modesty prevents such an outburst to let the world know this is the man I love.  Great poem, wonderfully touching.  Tina

Beautiful as always, Ali!  I'm glad 'modesty prevents.'  Can't imagine what you'd write if it didn't! -- A+  --David
