The One For Me




You live,
you love,
with passion in your veins.
A man with a boy's heart,
you delight in hermit crabs,
finding a school of bait.
You cast a net like a matador,
in a bullfight.
Your arms strong,
your lines flowing.
I love the fire in your eyes,
those eyes know me,
the way they know the tides.
Your hands know me,
the way they know a tug of a Marlin or a shark.
When the Marlin dances,
there is wonder in your eyes.
The way your eyes shine
when I wrap myself around you
and melt into you.
You live,
you love,
you create art and beauty
from the moments of our life.

  29. What a beautiful poem to your love. I especially like these lines:

    "You cast a net like a matador,
    in a bullfight."

    Nice simile! (And thanks for your encouraging words on my dolphin poem - I wasn't quite happy with it and changed a few things after you read it. Now I like it better :)
