Love Smiled at Me
Love smiled at me as his deft arrow flew,
Toward the target that’s upon my heart.
Through the center, the pain was very smart.
Was paralyzed as I stood before you.
Struggling hard with every breath I drew,
Like antiquities was falling apart.
Unable this massive crumbing to thwart,
Feeling my final moments to be few.
But you gave the appropriate assist.
Leaning forward with your soft parted lips.
Sharing your honey sweet breath as we kissed.
Such a rush was able to come to grips.
This is a love that I have sorely missed.
Ready to take many more of these trips.
On the Waves of Love, Edvard Munch (1896)
On the Waves of Love
With the yellow moon shining up above
Come into my waters my only love
Let my soft warmth surround you completely
Releasing your red desire discretely
Let me brush against you with every wave
To give you that comfort for which you crave
Let me rock you into a land of dreams
So you may be kissed by countless moonbeams
To you my energy I shall release
When I feel that your body is in peace
I will softly place you upon the shore
No other love shall you want evermore
A Classical Beauty (detail), Léon François Comerre (c. 1900) My Love So Near
Was greeted by her glowing smile
Her teeth white as a winter snow
Her lips red as a summer rose
Willingly comes into my arms
I feel the softness of her scent
I feel the warmth of her caress
Stepping back so our eyes could meet
Her eyes soft blue-green as the sea
Her hair yellow as ripened corn
Placing my hands upon her face
I feel her skin of woven silk
I feel the dew upon her lips
This sensation that I now hold
Creates a glow within my heart
Eager for her lips to unfold
The Kiss, Edvard Munch (1897) The Kiss
Your kiss is the summer sun
That warms me from head to toe
My heart your kiss does beckon
Making my blood briskly flow
Your kiss excites to no end
Raising my feet off the ground
Feelings I don’t comprehend
Yet joys it provides abound
Your kiss please never withhold
For I would most surely grieve
My heart would turn bitter cold
Fearing that you might soon leave
Dance of Life, Edvard Munch (1900) Dance of Life
Never thought you would ever feel this way
To be alone, thinking it’s to be free
Your confused heart I wish to gently sway
Removing any reason you should flee
To be alone soon turns to loneliness
From the absence of tender loving touch
Showing understanding with a caress
A warming kiss of caring very much
Mental walls in your life start closing in
Trapped within the deep darkness of your soul
A precious life begins a downward spin
Where your mourning ends and death reaps its toll
So come dance with me and make a new life
Together we’ll chase away clouds of gray
Together our loud laughter will be rife
Oh how I wish that you’ll forever stay
