Aching for Desire

I caught a glimpse of you

in shoots of grass

and violet flower,

the season of rain

beginning to thin

with glimmers of light

through breaking cloud,

the moon appearing

like a deer, telling me

you’ve not forgotten,

aching for desire kindled

by the simple words

I want you.

    Beautiful! The simple saying to the one you love, “I want you”, conveys so much passion and love. It says, to me, “I choose you above all others and all else in my life.” I would fall in love with a man who said this to me! Lucky woman in your life!

    What can I say … this one is special to me. I am an old romantic boot … but I “know” the feeling/s you are describing. Well said old warrior! 🙂
