A Tiny Little Sigh

by MsPetra

She laughed, sighed a tiny little sigh and smiled

A smile that cut deeper and had a different meaning

A direct communication of things

That was unspeakable

I felt my perceptions expanding to receive

A great and beautiful being

I felt the colors of life and of love

That shimmered and fluctuated vivid with a beautiful glow

Like a rainbow

With a rising and falling that burned into the conscious of my world like fire

Fire that would burn forever

Intuitively expressing fluently

The music of a different pitch

Elevated to a higher place

Rising above everything and everyone

Coming together as one

Sapphic voice

In a tender sweet singing

Held to a higher rhythm

A compassionate understanding of everything that was to be

Simply for the sake of the beauty

That she conveyed to me

Reaching farthest, deepening me

Apprehending the unseen within me

And I will lift her veil of illusion

As she gives herself to me

I run my fingers through her hair

Touch her here, touch her there

Whisper her name in her ear

Her every gesture full of intelligent involuntary expressions

Of love

Poetry set to music

Just between us

A touch of hands, soft caress

Raises goose flesh

Sometimes nature creates a marvelous human being

An effervescent soul


Of all, she knows

She knew me and could read my desires

As though they unfurled before me in scrolls

Of thoughts and yearnings from behind my brow

As if the same though given at the same moment to both

All that I desire

I claim as my right

To find one human heart who trusts me

And understands me

Elegant, captivating

Upright, refined and pure of mind

Sensual, vital, enticing

With a gentle swaying of motion made all through life

I delight in the warm devotion

Spoken in her whole being

Rather than by words

A delicate sense for sympathies and attractions

Such an expression of femininity her soft curves

She looked to me with eyes of compassionate understanding

In a tender sweet sort of poetry

In the excellence of love

Honorable devotion

Intoxicating and captivating

She sighed a tiny little sigh and smiled

She gave her spirit and embraced my spirit

In a manner that was electric and intense

Out shining anything and everything else I ever felt

We were attuned to music of the finest vibration

There arose all about us a high, tender sweet singing

Rapid singing, waves emanating, fine and powerful

Deeper, of a different meaning
