Treasure Island

Owain Glyn


Just You


How do I find the words
To say how much I love you?

When you are near
My pulses race,
Blood courses through my veins,
To feed the inferno that was once my heart.

Your perfume blinds my senses
Leaving me directionless,
Without a guide,
But heaven bound.

Your touch reduces me
To hopeless shivers,
My inept vocabulary,
Takes flight upon my breath.

Should you deign to kiss me
Or, to brush me with your lips,
Then I am lost, in ecstasy,
I'm off, to dance with the stars.

How do I find the words
To say how much I love you?

Only one springs to mind,

You,

Just....You.

    Lovely in it's honesty. I have trouble expressing things as well. If I could carry a pen and paper around and be given a 15 minute pause in conversation I could write it down but unfortunately my mouth says the silliest things. Very romantic, not in a faery taleish way but something attainable. (Report) Reply

    Impeccable in its purity no chasing cliches just good honest emotions laid out as a red carpet for the lady of your desire. I'm saving this as I love it. The tie up line speaks volumes plz excuse my age old cliche there but it fits. Tyvm karen (Report) Reply

    A spell binding ode to the lucky lady who is your truest love. Absolutely beautiful and romantic to the highest degree. A very touching and emotional poem. You have mastered to skill to express in lovely words all emotions from romantic love to whimsical children's rhymes to deep thoughts and contemplation of life as one faces that last breath in all your various poems. I can hardly wait to buy one of your published works one day. (Report) Reply

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
