I write these words on parchment in a matter of minutes yet on my heart inscribed in seconds. In essence there they always resided.
With speed of thought my brain speaks, my fingers grasp the quill and by awe of such thought I am stilled…
Then I write, yet stunted as ink in my tool takes flight. By new pen my heart unfolds on paper…
“I Love Thee”
By 3 words is my heart’s epistle summarized… I LOVE THEE! Such emotion intense- As bees to nectar, wanting am I of your sweet existence
By love, though through fantasy my heart accomplishes in leaps and bounds.
By cupid’s arrow, by Aphrodite’s kiss I am bewitched and lay down all resistance towards the need, which is you
Love! O Love! By this I am set upon hills and confess my heart in song- Hallelujah!
History of our union a vision of mere moments, scenes capturing our love that births generations to follow
By same love my longing flesh is humbled while in your presence, my tongue limp- lips clasp shut… in elusive thought I am lost
A letter of my love confessed is insufficient still. Writing until my fingers bleed changes you little.
You also, limited by your own sweet shell- Inhibited by time, slowly consuming lengthy and yet poor manifestations of my love on parchment
O that you would come away with me! Come dear love and intrude my fantasy… Naked is my desire!
I, confessing my heart with these 3 words do profess Love eternal…
I Love Thee…
Watched “Shakespeare in Love” on Saturday night and it felt like the first time 😮 … I’m totally in-love with the lingo and yes, it inspired me towards this piece… I just hope I didn’t do too badly 😀
