I tried many times today, to answer you, yet, I thought nothing I could say, or paint with words, could sweep you, as you have done to me.. Never have I been like this. Speechless with my own ability; Stunned. For the first time, words have failed me, and my speech is halted, because I am left one beautiful man. To the point of distracting me from other thoughts, you crept like a cat ,into my subconscious, silently, and patiently waited.. until now,and I still have mind is a blank canvas, a backdrop for your colorful and masterful strokes, to paint and create, to generate pleasure and intimacy; to love with passion, and honor with respect..and even as these words tumble out of my thoughts and into your hands yet still nothing compares with the beauty of your heart.

You have me wanting to reveal all my secrets, and inhibitions and tell you everything. Yet my fears grab hold and I am again stuck, and struck by my own inability. I dislike that I cannot trust my words, because even their simplicity betrays me, and betrays my heart. Iíve decided to change my shirt, because it reveals the place,my heart, where you have touched, so carefully, unintentionally removed it from my sleeve, and laid it to rest against yours...I cannot recall a day such as this, so beautiful or as sad ..I cannot allay my fears & yet cannot control my heart.. because it has run away with yours.

Simply delicious, is this breeze, of love you are sending, crisp and cool and just gently blowing, almost through me, as I whisper your name upon its cool breath. You captivate me.. life was never so beautiful as it is now, because of you. have made such a profound difference inside me, inside my life, just because, just because of you.

I love you.

Thoughts so creatively given, profound yet simple and elegant. Aptly titled. Wonderful in the truest sense.

Betrayel of words because of their simplicity...... Changing the shirt coz it reveals the place where he touched.....

Donna, He is lucky that he has this marvellous tribute and YOU are lucky that he stimulated to produce such a master piece.

I like how this rambles. Being in love is like a rollercoaster -- you can go from 0 to 60 mph in a split second. Love can hurt but it's a beautiful thing. Finding the right one comes but once a lifetime so hold on and don't let go. This is a different tone and voice for you, Donna, but you've weaved a spellbinding romantic poem.
