Love Like This

How am I to interpret these love lines?

How my heart hammers a steady drum beat,

purple-blossom bouquet with tassel sign

a romance swelters like the summer heat.

Spring winds blow heady fragrances on board

love swirls from my lips, from lungs, loud speakers

shout from the rooftops, feelings I can’t hoard

if not for you, my world would be bleaker.

Wishes written under the stars and moon

all that’s above granted for you and I

a light within the darkness, sway and swoon

forever whispers at work in night’s sigh

and for all eternity I honor

this love with a heart that doesn’t wander.

    Of course, if I’m just delusional and it gets rejected a bunch…
    (It’s a modern fairytale.)

    love that keeps you safe yet lets you soar is the love you must nurture and keep growing. every line held so much tenderness and I just want to say how blessed you are to be able to have such love and translate that into this really beautiful piece of poetry for the eyes and ears – yes I read your poetry out loud!
