“One must desire something to be alive.” Margaret Deland

Lost For Words

How do I begin to describe
what is met in tenderness or
name the experience of the
lightness of a silken caress,
or speak of the urgency of the tide
which breaks over us in our rhythm,
the outward sign of our inner desire 
for connection we sometimes call love?

  1. There are words!
    Embedded in the intimacy.
    Desire, Attraction and Sinking in the emotions!

    Very nice 🙂!

  3. There are some human experiences that are beyond words. I take a certain satisfaction in that.
