St. Valentines Kiss

Silent tongues sway to the beat of two hearts

Whispering of love, closely entwined

Souls joined in embrace dance in eternity

Arms caress as a gentle breeze

Feelings deepen into bottomless seas

Each swell, each wave, brings hymns of the heavens

Under vast open skies; jeweled nights

Staring into forever; knowing eternity lies within her eyes

Lost for days in feelings words could never touch

Every breath leading into each other’s arms

A kiss, a quiet romance

Wrapped in the folds of passion’s curtain

Love; for her; for him; forever.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Tells of the incredible feelings that kissing that special someone can give you.

I can now say surely that you do obviously have a great talent, the way that you seem to capture the moment and hold it in place, like a photo, in all of it's vivid color, is not something I have seen from any writer in a long while. I can almost see it, and it is completely beautiful.
Thankyou for this, I haven't felt this way since I stopped writing songs.

The line about eternity in her eyes places you with the greatest of love poets, including Dante; but the poem, as a whole, confirms that placement. You have a way with words that, though unlike what I have usually preferred (I normally stick to strict rhyme and meter), is so overwhelmingly impressive that one forgets any minor questions of form in order to bask in the effect of the poem. Again, this reminds me very much of the early Claudel; and, moreso, of the great Irish poet and diplomat, Denis Devlin. (And I urge you to run, don't just walk, to the nearest library or bookstore, and begin reading his stuff. Ambassador Devlin will make you work in his poems, but he will pay you back for the effort.)

You have captured my exact feelings in a kiss in this poem. It made my heart fluttered and my knees weak! To know someone else feels the same about a kiss, especially the opposite sex, is a great releif and joy to me! Have fun

Hey there,
I have read all six of your pieces on the site, but this one touched me the most. I was just captivated in the beauty of your words, and how you aren't afraid to express your deepest feelings with such honesty. You do truly have a gift and I'd be very interested in any more work you may post in the future.
Also thankyou for the kind critique on my poem.
Keep in touch,
~* Catriana *~

Indeed the right kiss can do a lot. I'm one to write more sorrow or depressive poems...wising I could write about love, but it doesnt strike on paper as powerful as it does with I leave it to people who can do it...and you are one of those people. I love romance. Thank you writing it...
