the gift

THE GIFT

Out of the darkness steps
my wild beauty.
Her loosened hair like flames
cascading down her back.
Her eyes like a clear winter's morn,
at once both loving and passionate.
Her tears pierce my heart;
her laughter fills my soul.
Before her I kneel,
both omnipotent and helpless.
She is my goddess,
I her faithful servant.
Through space and time
are our lives entwined.
Til time is no more.

~S~ wrote this for me, just a few short hours ago.

With her, I truly believe I am the beautiful person she sees. More than I ever thought myself capable of being. She gives me a gift more powerful than any I ever received before.

She gives me the gift of myself.

It's the best gift... sometimes we give away/lose so much of ourselves that we need to be reminded of who we are.

To be able to see yourself through the eyes of someone who loves you is a rare and beautiful gift!

poetry is the threat that runs through the heart of humanity and stands as the last defense to the lover's claim that the unity between the hearts and minds and boddies of two people is what allowes individual souls to exist.

It’s beautiful when the person you love makes you feel beautiful. It’s also beautiful when you ‘yourself’ can see the beauty within you. I’m having some dark days lately, so I am relying on my girlfriend to give me that ‘beautiful’ feeling.

You’re very fortunate to have a person who’s so loving!

This is the same thing I've experienced with my soul mate. I feel like a different person when I'm with him or just talking to him on the phone because he makes me feel desireable, beautiful, special ... all those things that I miss feeling when we are not together.

You expressed this feeling so well here.
