Aching with 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 appears
like a deer, telling me
you’ve not forgotten,
aching with desire
for 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! 🙂
