Brave Lovers

couples meeting in the street
embracing in the darkness
in the rain
and between the slanting light from neon signs

watch them talking sexily to each other
about their attractions
and their distractions

and i am attracted to them
and to their sensuous interactions

and yet it falls
- quiet nature -
in glimmering waterfalls
moisturising lips and eyelids
washing everything clean

today was a sexy day
i must confess
and so my sensibilities are no longer sensible

but i can still recognise lust in an eye
or the subtle smile hiding within lips

i remember talking in the rain like them
i remember cutting a finer silhouette

we've all been the paramours
and the rejected

passion is as much a gift as creativity
or intuition
it is a thing that makes people look
and think
and remember

it really takes courage to stand there - committing to something

but i'm sure you both know
how lonely it can also be
on those rain soaked streets
silently wandering around
with far too much time to yourself...

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

I REALLY like how the end ties back to the beginning with the rain connection. Standouts:

 

i remember cutting a finer silhouette

 

we've all been the paramours
and the rejected

And to what Marti hilighted, I'll add

 

slanting light from neon signs

 

and

 

about their attractions
and their distractions

 

and i am attracted to them.

 

Very much liked.
