“A Language of Our Own” – a poem

A Language of Our Own

Checking the minutes as they tick away on the clock,

my belly tightening in anticipation,

I try to keep myself busy.

Sometimes I still feel like that girl again –

when everything was new, the excitement was maddening –

I don’t think one can ever get used to it entirely.

Woman biting her lip

Gravel crunching outside,

my heart speeds up and I wonder…

Could it be?

Footsteps come up the walk and I open the door.

It’s you, the reason I have for breathing, for being –

I was made for you.

I’ve known in my soul forever, it seems.

We kiss and embrace.

 first-kiss

In your arms, the world feels right once more,

everything is brighter,

more beautiful.

My heart yearns deeply for you.

We look at each other then.

Sometimes words aren’t necessary.

I know when you’re worried or sad, even happy.

I can see the affection in your eyes.

When you tell me how you love me,

the words are stronger because I can see you mean them.

We speak in a language of our own.

Even on a normal day,

when we chat on the phone,

or relate so well in person,

we have our own language

It’s always been this way, since the first day we met.

Our camaraderie is easy,

perfect.

Even when we argue,

we come back to each other as equals.

Our bond is everything,

35__Hold_my_hand_by_becauseIRnutty

our union sacred,

our future forever.

We don’t need words,

but when we use them,

our laughter tells it all,

our private jokes,

the silliness,

laughing-women

the secrets and dreams we share.

It’s something no one understands –

our bond – yet it’s impossible to explain.

It just is,

like the way we breathe,

we just are.

 almost-kiss81

We belong together,

we grow closer all the time,

more than friends,

shutterstock_soul mates

far more than lovers.

We are soul mates,

two people who share a deep connection.

Nothing can break us.

 Unbreakable

I don’t need words to say ‘I love you’.

I mean it with every breath I draw,

every moment I think of you through the day.

I feel it deep inside,

a part of me,

my-heart-is-perfect

an ache for you that never eases.

I need you close to fill the void.

And all I have to do is gaze into your beautiful, hazel eyes.

Then you can see my heart.

For it’s yours…

it has always been.

And you don’t need to say anything,

I can see it on your face.

That’s right, love.

We have a language of our own…

and it’s perfect.

“In Your Arms” – a poem

In Your Arms

In your arms I’ve found my place,

I can finally breathe,

learn to let go of some of life’s stressors.

 rbk-couple-embrace-0810-mdn

In your arms I am at peace,

the world melts away until it’s only us,

our quiet breaths,

our shared connection,

only you and me and nothing else matters,

your caressing hand a sign of your affection,

the loving look in your hazel eyes.

 BUUnbJ5CEAA2L2t

In your arms I am free,

I can be more,

more than I ever thought possible,

I can try new things,

be stronger.

kiss-couple-romance-touch-feeling-happy-hug-embrace-love-beautiful-camila-lima-anas-ahmed3

In your arms I find you to be a healer,

you cleaned up the messes the others left,

you sealed my wounds until I was whole again.

 2c472b7b84bf93f2fd8964ef941c61bc

In your arms I’ve found my purpose,

the reason we always thought this was destined,

two souls so alike at the core yet different in other ways,

needing a kindred to feel complete.

In your arms there’s nothing I can’t do,

no limits I can’t surpass,

in your arms anything is possible.

 BTGot-FCcAA7t4c

In your arms I find safety like no other,

I can breathe deep,

knowing you’ll always keep me close and never hurt me,

my trust is implicit.

 BW-C891CcAETXhH

In your arms…

I am home.

My Romantic Thought of the Day 48

Real love is being with someone who knows your flaws, and despite the hard times, still finds you amazing and sticks around.

“Lovers Like Us” – a poem

Lovers Like Us

From the window the stars in the sky seem to mock me,

night-sky-hd-wallpaper-2

the walls in here are too close,

wanting in this night,

yearning for your arms,

10290666_511851735615567_6318773654661052694_n

craving your soul next to mine,

                                   but lovers who hate goodbyes will always stay true…

Remembering your kiss,

c351bb9144b14049a92fd7ce8429e634

the kind that can change from sweet to wild at any moment,

recalling your hands upon my skin,

article-0-0631B92A000005DC-716_468x538

a fire that is never fully quenched.

Lovers who yearn like this have no reason to leave…

Your voice from afar is calming,

and it’s almost like you’re with me.

We talk of our days spent apart and laugh at old times,

laughing couple

we flirt just like we did in the beginning.

You’re always in my thoughts.

I am utterly consumed by you,

in mind, body and soul.

Lovers who relate so well cannot be parted for long…

My heart hurts tonight,

needing you so much,

wanting you here beside me,

just to look in your eyes,

Silhouette_Love_by_FabiiKawaii123

but I know if not tomorrow,

sometime soon I will see you again,

your hazel eyes will ground me,

your caress on my cheek will soothe,

couple-kissing-bed

your hard arms warming my body,

BW-C891CcAETXhH

all of which I crave as I have no other.

I know that I’d wait forever if I had to,

but I’d wait.

Lovers who love like this are meant to be…

I need no assurances to know the truth of how I feel,

I don’t need the validation of another couple’s story in life or a book to know we are true,

though I love happy endings.

My heart knows best,

and this heart will wait.

For now I content myself with thoughts of you.

BUUnbJ5CEAA2L2t

I still yearn but never in vain.

I trust you, and I trust us.

Lovers who feel this way will not stray…

For this is true love,

and lovers who feel like this,

lovers who need this way,

who feel so much,

BeexTTACIAAHzek

Lovers like us will always,

always stay true.
