Bathed in fading sunlight
On a golden summer’s eve
I saw love the size of mountains
In the way you look at me
Tiny little pinholes
Pierce a dusky charcoal sky
I saw love the size of planets
In the iris of your eye
Struck in muffled rhythm
Through the fabric of your dress
I saw love the size of heartbeats
In the passion you confess
Bursting through the confines
Of your body where it lay
I saw love as tall as Heaven
And invited it to stay
beautiful, just beautiful. xx
I love the metaphors here. Great way to start the day
Kind of you to say so Sarah. Thank you for stopping by!
Sounds like a beautiful memory. ❤
Indeed it is. Thank you, ma’am 🙂
Now this one had my smile widening, VW and I felt happy that love was found, invited, and stayed… Heartwarming…. enough so that I didn’t stop smiling all the while I was typing this comment… 😀 xPenx
It thrills me to know the effect went beyond your mind and into your face 🙂
Wow I think this just became one of my favorites! I have read it over and over already. “I saw love the size of planets In the iris of your eye”…. Wow such passion.
Thank you very much, Lydia. I’m glad you like it! 🙂
It is much more than like vw! I think it is amazing!

“I saw love the size of heartbeats
In the passion you confess”
that is breathtaking, what a wonderful line, the realization that true love and passion was found and believed, puts a tear in my eye. 🙂
Love is a stinging pain and a flooding rapture…so beautiful when it is at work. So painful when it is deprived. I’m glad you enjoyed it!
