Housing my soul

This is getting ridiculous, my obsession for you
I am beyond any thing else, save you
I know I am being very predictable
Grand passion, heated body, exploded senses are nothing new
In a way, those are most over-rated.
You can see how everyone goes on and on about it.
Still, that is how I feel about it.
As they show in those movies
Write in those soppy novels
Can’t you feel electricity flowing through us?
Each electron going towards its goal with a single mindedness
My fingers slowly touching you, pushing all those buttons
Right touch, exact amount of pressure
Nothing is forced or contrived
Intensity seems to touch a new height each time
Newness never ceases to surprise me
Is it all from my side?
Without me you are reduced to nothing, incomplete, a block of wood
Even after so long an association, you are so detached
Do you realise, when I wish to forget myself, I come to you
How our desires merge, becoming one.
Housing my soul in yours, we together make music

Great poem, too bad a man can't play that way.

Music does truly speak to the very core of our souls.

"Each electron going towards its goal with a single mindedness"

I just loved this line, and also the clever insertion of the Writers Island link!

More a sublime desire here, I think. Perhaps it is how it really is.

simply beautiful.

Steve said...

You write with such emotion and such incite.

I love it!

Wow, I really liked it. Made me salivate for every next line.

I wrote a poem a long time ago like this, but it sounded like it was sexual and it was just me playing guitar. :-P

Clare said...

Hi Gautami! I love the musical yearning and passion in this -- fun and full of connection and relationship. Really well done!! Very enjoyable reading.
:)

"
Do you realise, when I wish to forget myself, I come to you"

has kept me wondering.. really a profound statement this one

LittleWing said...

...desire lost in music...nothing is forced or contrived...yes, i believe...

The Mama Bear said...

Oh Gautami this is so moving, and the last line, I think there isn't a woman on earth who wouldn't love to hear that.

Superb

I know a lot of guys without passion, living like robots. It is just UNBELIEVABLE...

This is truly beautiful, I love the way your mind works, and how it flows into words...

listen, I know you might be busy, but there's an interesting meme at my space which has three pieces to it, if you have time, would you mind responding? I would love to hear what you think. Follow my name to get there. Thanks.

Herb Urban said...

Passionate, beautiful yearning for connection in song and souls. Incredible poem.

Very nicely done. You are a wonderful writer and so talented.

chicklegirl said...

I love how you make your poems so tactile: "My fingers slowly touching you, pushing all those buttons/Right touch, exact amount of pressure".

Prats said...

Wonderful use of wirds to describe sucha vast concept.

rch said...

Hi guatami, very sensual look at desire. So many buttons, so little time ;)
