Come to Me!

My love,
Wherever you are,
Come to me!

I have heard your voice
In the serenade of the songbird
In the swaying branches of the tallest trees
In the humming buzz of distant stars.

I have felt your soft and delicate touch
In the swaying blades of grass
In the smooth contours of every Oak and Maple
In the glowing embers’ warm embrace.

I have tasted your sweetness
In the fresh-picked berries and ripened fruit
In the the darkness of the cacao
In the refreshing simplicity of water on parsed lips.

I have found your scent
In the living, breathing soil just after the rain
In the open fields full of fragrant flowering flora
In the spring air, life rejoicing in renewal.

I have seen your visage
In the waves crashing undeterred against the rocky shores
In the sun shining through overcast skies onto peaceful scenes below
In the ageless peaks and valleys carved into the very Earth itself.

I have sensed your presence
In the hottest summer days and the coldest winter nights
In the minutes that pass like hours and the days that go by much too fast
In the busy city streets and the lonely country lanes.

I only wish
I could know you now
As you are
Unguarded and undiluted.

I want…
To hear you whisper wispy words in my welcoming ear
To feel you run your finger along the weather worn lines in my hand
To place my lips so close to yours, hovering, your breath hot and heavy, your flavor pouring out and through the thin space between
To breathe deep your heavenly fragrance, sweet and savory one in the same
To behold, with eyes unfettered, your form in all its natural splendor
To be with you now, wherever you are, however you will have me…

    1. Oh isn’t that so true… I may seem it here, and I am really working on it in my daily life, but I am actually a fairly introverted person. I have a very hard time expressing myself to others. Recent painful events in my life left me open wide, and I am actually grateful beyond words that they did – I really had no choice whether to be open to those around me, and rather than let it break me, I let it teach me the value of intimacy (not sexual, just intimacy – being close to someone as they really are without any defensive barriers, and allowing them to be close to you in the same way).

      1. I’m very much an introvert… Although the people who have known me for several years know that I’m am more balanced than I used to be…And people who meet me these days argue with me about defining myself as an introvert. Lol. Like they could know? Intimacy is definitely something I struggle with (possibly why I’m still single). I’m so glad you have turned whatever happened into something positive. That’s really the best gift we can give ourselves!

  1. That shift! When you begin “I want” the pulse of this piece quickens, words hit with need, not thought. They scrape at that part of my neck that switches off cognizance…
    So delightful!

  2. That’s it.
    You just cannot blog here.
    You have to publish an anthology… And share this with the world. Think about it. Seriously. Ill buy the first one provided you autograph it for me.

    1. 🙂 This makes me very happy. I actually have this on my to-do list, at the suggestion of several other bloggers (one of whom has already been promised the first copy; sorry! I will get you the second though). I will definitely let you know when it is ready!
