About the Poem

A poem about the beauty and freedom in a single moment of intimacy between lovers.

Rapture

There is a place for us
that no one else can enter.
It is a place that holds no secrets,
only beauty, peace, understanding.

A place that we come to,
thinking we are one,
only to have our souls
fused together for a moment.

And in that moment, I know you;
every pore, every pulse,
every thought, every fear.
And I love you more.

I feel myself laid bare before you,
and I feel content . . .
joyous that you are with me,
loving me in my nakedness.

Keep it real gurl! I have nothing but love for you because you know what your talking about unlike 1/2 the people on these sites who read a poem, type it up, and put their name on it so they can take everyone elses credit. Keep up the hard work and let us know what's up every once in a while. Oh yeah, hit us up with a new poem every once in a while

thank you, my wife and I now know the name of "our place". RAPTURE,We visit there as often as possible, we hope to move there someday, forever. Money will not buy you a ticket there, only truth,honesty, trust and love for another. You pay nothing for truth,nothing for honesty,nothing for trust, if these cost you anything at all, then true love was never there. As Karin knows with those KEYS you may enter RAPTURE at your own free will. Karin thank you for your words of love.
