Cold Love


Recommended Posts

the water

the water

cool upon my face

like your cold hands

caressing me

leaving a lingering trace

 

your frozen love is so pure

and clean

cold passion that preserves my heart

a freeze bringing together

shimmering pieces once pulled far apart

 

from mist to water

from water to ice

the frosts of your adoration

descend from the skies

leaving me as soft and sensuous

as driven snow

 

this is the coldness

that i love to know.

To receive love, you have to give it...

A chilling Poem icon_biggrin.png

 

Actually, its not- It is warm, well composed and reflects the abstract beauty of Virgin Snow in the deep forest, immediate sensual, and clear...

 

Well done Douglas;-)

This is my favorite type of poem Douglas: a highly lyrical love poem. You make effective use of repetition, and adoration is used swimmingly. Not too long, not too short -- a contemporary sonnet with a killer concluding couplet -- the poem is just right in every way. Perfect title, too!

Dear Doug. I loved this poem.

This is perfect expression:

 

leaving me as soft and sensuous

as driven snow

 

And then the ending part is very well:

 

this is the coldness

that i love to know.
