You are the elegance of a whisper
The deep longing in my verse
The passion of a first kiss
The crescendo of a sigh

You are a garden of fantasies
An arrangement of dreams
The bloom of my smile
A bouquet of sunsets

You are the reason I breathe
The exhale of my balladry
You are a sonnet of love
A scent of poetry

    1. Veery flattered and sefriously so happy. Keeping it fresh can be difficult, but for me, a man not currently in love with anyone, well, that was of a challenge.

      Delighted that you appreciated this poem. Thankful for your words and read.


  1. The crescendo of a sigh – incredible way of using words – I thought. And then the entire poem became an incredible feeling and experience.

    you make poetry
    into a feeling
    and an experience
    a beautiful one.

  2. Very nice very lovely. My day was well spent and although being locked out of my motel while it was still dark outside, I talked to a lot of people today. With the buses and walking around, I can say I sufficiently wore myself out. But to wake up to the poem was a beautiful ending to a lovely day. Thanks for posting it. And I’m so so wore out that I can scarcely keep my eyes open even after a nap!

  4. The crescendo of a sigh, The reason that I breathe!! Two breath taking statements indeed that leaves one waiting to exhale my friend.

Amazing work indeed!🌹🌹


    1. Humbled by your words Roy. I have been working so hard to be very selective over every single word I choose.

      Be well my friend.

  6. I have been away and have missed so much. Your news is so happy and I’m happy for you. It’s so good to read your poetry again. Happy Belated Birthday. Yours isn’t far from mine. Aries are awesome people. Every person in my household is an Aries. We have some interesting and firey conversations sometimes and everyone has an opinion. *smile* This poem is lovely. I know this is a chatty comment but I have only come back to several posts. Feel free to read and delete it. Best always, dear Drew. β™₯.
