you're reading...
interested, love poem


I was inspired by the smile of one of my friends as she changed her profile pic on FB last week … I built a poem off the feelings driven by her pic.  Enjoy, and be made…


You left me speechless:
tongue tied.
Voice fading into nothingness –
the abyss
left as I fell into your eyes,
mesmerized by the wonder of your smile.
My heart skips several beats
as my brain entreats my lungs to work again;
Starved for oxygen as
your beauty takes my breath away…
I have to pick my jaw up from the floor.
Twinkling eye gives allure to your face,
hints at the poise and grace you have
as you move through my mind.
Can’t help it – can’t find anyone else that
gives me chills;
wills my breath to still until you speak,
hanging onto every word.
It seems absurd that a portrait makes me rhyme,
but it wouldn’t be the first time
that a picture inspires a thousand words –
which is ironic because, although I type
Releasing the feelings your features inspire
My tongue is on strike, conspires with my mind
To keep me silent; the words that I want to say
Stay trapped behind the wonder of your gaze…
And I am rendered speechless.

  5. Wow, is all I can say! This is absolutely beautiful and there are so many lines I loved…”as I fell into your eyes” and “can’t find anyone else that gives me chills; wills my breath to still until you speak.” What an amazing poem just from one picture… 🙂
