Love sparkles when new and glistens softly when it’s old. Love is swift and urgent with its coming yet grows patient and gentle with time. Love is craziness at its beginning, then a most peaceful insanity when it lasts.

“Colpo di fulmine”; a stroke of lightning; the moment you meet and there’s a mesmeric attraction far beyond the physical; a knowing at the level of the soul that’s innate, unexplainable, and irresistible; rare true love waiting to unfold.

From “A Thousand Pieces of You” by Claudia Gray
Lightning9I believe in a moment.
A moment when you
glimpse the truth
within someone,
and they glimpse
the truth within you.
In that moment,
you don’t belong to yourself
any longer, not completely.
Part of you belongs to him;
part of him belongs to you.
After that, you can’t take it back,
no matter how much you want to,
no matter how hard you try.

Sweetheart…
Without a hint of warning you appeared; a stranger, yet someone I already knew. This knowing beyond knowing is unnerving if I allow my thinking mind to ponder it. Yet, my heart is certain in its conviction to love you. I’ve waited so long for you.

American Catholic archbishop, Fulton J. Sheen

is not
an absence
of action;
rather it
is “timing”…
it waits
on the
right time
to act,
for the right
principles
and in the
right way.

Sweetheart…
As the rain begins to fall tonight I am comforted knowing you hear the same thunder I do. Listening to the raindrops fall makes me feel closer to you. I seem to find you these days in just about everything of beauty.

Dear Lady…
When I think of you my heart feels like when it was young before the scarring of heartbreak. I am blessed by your presence there. So easily you glided past my habitual walls and have taken up emotional residence within me.

Lebanese-American artist, poet, and writer Khalil Gibran

no other
desire but
to fulfill
itself…
To melt
and be
like a
running
brook that
sings its
melody
to the night.

My Darling…
For years I sensed you beyond imagination through every heartache that came; through every disappointment. I’ve been moving in your direction for so long I can no longer remember when your image began to take shape in my heart.

From “The Catastrophic History of You and Me” by Jess Rothenberg 
heart120aI was falling.
Falling through
time and space
and stars and sky
and everything
in between.
I fell for days
and weeks
and what felt like
lifetime
across lifetimes.
I fell until
I forgot
I was falling.

My Love…
In the early morning light sometimes I watch you sleep. All the curves of your face I study trying to memorize every detail without success. In those moments you touch me deeply without lifting a finger.

From “You Are” found at http://beccas-corner.tripod.com/id13.html
woman-sleeping-elev8You are the whisper
on the wind.
The love
that never ends.
You are the soft
and gentle caress.
You are the love
and tenderness.
I feel your warmth
and your fire.
It’s only you
I desire…
