Adore

20120215-190646.jpg
Streetlights play with shadows as pedestrians stroll under
Flickers stroke your hair and hover gently on the strands
I could watch for hours as the world keeps moving onward
Placidly content to hold my universe in hand

Storefronts sell their fancies catching glances from the children
Snowflakes grace the fabric of your sweater as we stroll
Hands entwined so I can keep you safely near me always
Hats and furs like armor in our fight to thwart the cold

Have I ever told you
How much I adore you
How much I am warmed to know that you care
Have I ever mentioned
You have my attention
I’m pleasantly caught in the heat of your stare

Crystals form in corners of the windows through the city
Taxis run like blood cells through the arteries of town
All the decorations and the lights aren’t half as pretty
As the silhouette you cast like magic on the ground

All the presents pale beside the gift of being with you
All the vendors fail to place a price upon your love
Every time you smile I think the moon gets slightly larger
Glowing like a dream and you are what i’m dreaming of

Have I ever told you
How much I adore you
How I’d stop the world if it was what I had to do

Have I ever mentioned
You have my full attention
Totally transfixed and wanting nothing else but you

  1. All the decorations and the lights aren’t half as pretty
    As the silhouette you cast like magic on the ground…loved it
    dreamy nights and twinkling days, love sure walks on magical ways..
    ~hugs

  2. Too many brilliant lines to quote. You honestly are such a true and sensual poet. You take a concept that could be explored in such a shallow way, and you dive in so deeply. I am enjoying watching you evolve.

  3. I love how descriptive you are. I can imagine and “visit” your world in poetry.
    **Have I ever mentioned
    You have my attention
    I’m pleasantly caught in the heat of your stare**
    This is such a powerful statement of love to me. We often overlook these simple moments.
    Beautiful my friend.

  4. So many wonderful lines in this, VW – (well, ALL of them, actually.) This poem is full of splendor. (I’ve never used the word “splendorous” to describe a poem before, but that’s what came to mind!) Very beautiful sentiments, and another gem of a poem!

  5. A truly mesmerizingly beautiful love poem! The rhythms, the repeated questioning refrain, the movements in the city together, the changing of scenery and lights all match the ever increasing sense of adoration for the beloved on the part of the speaker in this poem. My congratulations on your success with this topic here.

  6. I really love the refrain: “have I ever mentioned you have my full attention”. What a strikingly fresh way to say something so meaningful!
