No Matter

No matter the season I crave your love.
The heat of the summer days and mugginess of its nights.
The cooling wide array of an autumnal rainbow.
The white ashen frosted death of winter.
Or during the green reawakening of spring my heart leaps around like a young girl in a field of flowers.

No matter the time of day I crave your love.
At midnight with the moon high above to show me the path to you in the shadows.
During the waking of each day at dawn as we say goodbye to the darkness.
In the morning with the sun waving through the clouds.
During the blazing midday sun when there is hardly any shadow below my feet.
In the early evening dusk as the sun goes to sleep a burst of jewel tones illuminate the sky as my heart also burst for you.

No matter where we are I crave your love.
Under the cover of the trees with its heavy branches and its light leaves.
On the busy city streets with the blur of beings and vehicles whizzing by.
On the edge of the beach, lake, or river with each body of water my heart seeks yours in a gentle raging flow.

No matter what your mind thinks your heart needs to know that without fear or reservation I can say;
I love you under the sun, moon, and stars.
I love you under the clouds, rains, snow, and rainbows.
I love you with or without people around to witness it.

No matter my confusion my heart knows it belongs to you.
It may have taken my mind awhile to catch up to what my soul already knew.
Simply my heart has belonged to you since first I saw you and it beat in my chest like I had sprinted up a steep hill.

I will love you way after my heart has stopped.
I will love you way after my body has returned to dust.
I will love you for many more life times and each and every time we are reunited our love will bloom.

Autumn’s Fall – dVerse Trimeric Challenge

Light gales move and drop the leaves
The shades of color do magic weave
The storms we shall weather together
The sunburst jewels on the trees come apart with their final beauty

The shades of color do magic weave
As we step on the brightly crunchy floor covering
Hand in hand we walk on this and all future brisk autumn’s eve

The storms we shall weather together
You and I as one are tougher than leather
Warm and strong in its embrace, but its caress as soft as a feather

The sunburst jewels on the trees come apart with their final beauty
Though you and I begin this journey
Let the autumn’s fall be our guide that brings us through our union duty

A Man Comes Forward – Gender Bender dVerse Challenge

Here I sit in a cold sweat in all my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered, “I fell from weakness at the site of her ample beauty.”
But here I sit in a cold sweat in my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered, “I fell when I saw her tilt her head toward the speaker on her right”.
But here I sit in a cold sweat in my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered, “I fell when she played with her hair as she spoke to those around her”.
But here I sit in a cold sweat in my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered, “I fell when I wanted to glide my fingers over her blue velvet off the shoulder sweater and onto the span of exposed supple skin”.
But here I sit in a cold sweat in my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered, “I fell when I heard her roaring merriment”.
But here I sit in a cold sweat in my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered, “I fell when I saw the euphoria in her glee filled gaze”.
But here I sit in a cold sweat in my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered, “I fell when her sweet jovial smile lit a flame in me”.
But here I sit in a cold sweat in my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered, “I fell when someone turned up the thermostat on this frosty December eve”.
But here I sit in a cold sweat in my trembling manly self.

No man ever uttered these things, but despite the cold sweat and not feeling my knees I need to let you know that you captivated my thoughts, my heart, and my soul.

No man ever uttered this, but I’ll show you how I’ll love you for an eternity, how I’d rather spend Saturday night laying next you reading or holding you than out acting a fool with the boys.

No man ever uttered these things, but here before you I am trembling, sweating, and barely breathing in fear that you won’t have me.

So will you utter the words that will have mercy on me and make me stop sweating and trembling? Will you have me for your own?
