    Fingertips,
    hushed brush strokes
    painting love in the starlight.
    Your face,
    soft canvas
    lovelier than any art
    Our hands,
    covenant
    to a secret convergence
    The space,
    between us
    filled with breath from both our lungs
    Now shared,
    from within -
    not a distance but a bond
    Our love,
    luminous
    filling thick and close to bind
    A gap,
    forgotten
    because this all feels so real.
    This poem,
    born tonight
    as it rolled down both our cheeks
    In drops,
    but not tears -
    tiny vessels of rapture.
    These words,
    like droplets
    A Saltwater Lullaby.

    Sleep now,
    my angel
    more precious than my heartbeat.
    Whole beauty,
    held so close
    as I join you in sweet dreams.

      It's very interesting the way you write, the title on its own is already very promising and catching...it caught me!:)) ''Painting love in the starlight" - OMG, what beautiful words. What a great imagery! I've got an optional illusion.

      u kissed her didnt you? hehe this piece easily forms the image in the reader's mind about whats going on. hold on, then you slept? ok that was a lame joke. but overall it showed intimacy, but still retained the mysterious air that makes a poem so...eeriely mysterious...good work

      Beautiful. It's like the quiet time in the deep of the night when everyone is asleep but you're awake and just gazing at the person you love, cherishing and adoring in perfect peace.

      This poem,
    born tonight
    as it rolled down both our cheeks.
    A very intimate piece, enjoyable to read...very much so. I love the lines like:

    "tiny vessels of rapture" they just add so much to the piece.
    The lines were so short, but yet still so powerful, thats a very cool effect. I have to so I very much like this piece to, not a favorite...but still very ejoyable to read...
    Thanks for writing

      Meaning ful and poignant. Very good. I can tell you thought out each word (like you said you did). A very good poem and I can certainly relate on the line "more precious than my heartbeat". Women have the knack of getting us to care about them more than ourselves. Anyways...I'm rambling...very good job.

      This was beautiful. The words you chose were so...Un explainable. I loved every bit of it.
    Fingertips,
    hushed brush strokes
    painting love in the starlight.
    Your face,
    soft canvas
    lovelier than any art.
    That was my fav. part. I loved how you used the artwork as a person. This was a very lovely poem. This is going to my fav. list.
