I want to express how I feel but haven't tried
because words seem to be such empty containers
- like husk that is taken up by an idle breeze

I feel the touch of your lips upon my skin
The intensity of love in your eyes
I feel it through my closed lids
as I listen to the mesmerising sound of your voice
and we make love with our souls
Sighs slide from the corners of my eyes
My heart expands beyond the confines of my chest
I feel its steady drum - a primal beat
Love expressed in syncopated rhythm
our bodies playing out the tune

When you sleep I watch your familiar face
and trace the contours with a fingertip
- a lambent touch as soft as a thought
You stir. Perhaps I've touched your dreams
You inhale and my breath expands your lungs
My kiss lingers until you wake
and reach for me again...

Chanti, there are no “empty containers” stored within the “vessel of love,” my gifted friend! This passionate piece exudes sensitivity, desire and has such enormous beneficial sensuality pouring across the page that one indeed would be filled to the brim with resurrection just to be held once again. It’s an outstanding creation. Thanks for sharing it. Take good care and be well.

Not so...these "empty containers."
You have a very passionate nature, it seems, and a very romantic
way of expressing it.

"make love with our souls"

"Love expressed in syncopated rhythm
our bodies playing out the tune"

Indeed Chanti, that is the rhythem which has kept this troubled world and this miserable race alive. Making love with souls is an other beautiful stroke of your muse-brush which makes this poem a complete guideline for lovers. Very very impressive and romantic.

Chanti a soft touch, but a very deeply passionate sensuous feel
from soul to soul as it should be! Beautifully done!

Reviewed by Sherry Heim 8/14/2005
WOW, Chanti, I can't imgine where you got the idea that your words would be empty containers? You express yourself and your feelings so very well. True it is that emotions are difficult to capture with language, but with your words you have painted the entire picture from the physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of love and wrapped them into a package that brings back to life feelings of past moments long forgotten.
Take care,

Dearest Chants,

"- a lambent touch as soft as a thought
You stir. Perhaps I've touched your dreams"---> absolutely stunning :)

A soft, delicate and loving write, yet so full of passion. Amazing how love can inspire the most exquisitely radiant thougths and expressions. Beautifully written as always Chants.

Chanti you created a masterpiece with this one. It whispers of love, romance and the promise of desire that will be consumated with your lovers awakening. The graphic although very erotic (got my juice flowing lol) is not necessary with this poem as the words are so perfect they make draw their own perfect image. Sweeeeeeet!

Sweetly erotic with a soft touch of heat. Bravo.
