Love Plea

Feel my voice call gently, like a Peaceful Dove.
Sparks of life will enter Time to gather Love.
My love, come lay upon my pale naked chest,
We are freed from Eden’s green and idled rest.
Let not the dark powers burn your passion dead,
Black and white must caress the deep waters red.
I will be your lover, friend, and servant too,
This gift I grant freely in hopes of knowing you.
Love’s touch can soothe every proud and shameful fear;
I shall hold you tender, warm, and ever dear.
Black and White must caress the deep waters red.
Let not the dark powers burn your passion dead.
We are freed from Eden’s green and idled rest;
My love, come lay upon my pale naked chest
Sparks of Life will enter Time to gather Love.
Feel my voice call gently, like a Peaceful Dove.

    This is beautiful, Amanda. There is an embodiment that love seems to span that includes an entire gamut of emotions all-inclusive. What we give, what we receive, what we sacrifice, what we endure, what we exact, what we express, and so on, seem to embody the totality of what love encompasses. Love is being, wisdom, surrounding, setting free, fulfilling, draining and all those ideals and traits that consciousness afford us as humans. Love is the acceptance of ourselves and others to a degree that we're able and willing to let a little of ourselves out in order to allow a little of those we love in. It's a perfect meld of acquiescence of two becoming one.

    This poem was so soothing. I read it several times and it felt so calming like home, and personal as it relates to human encounter. This is purpose, our purpose, in this realm of understanding we temporarily inhabit.

    It occurs to me, as well, that love is, as well, risky business is it not?

      Well my comment did not post. Lol. I think what I said was this: Every loss of love is worth Its journey. I appreciate you very much for your deeply felt remarks. You are a true gem.
