You awaken me
With the light that shines in your eyes
And the gentle breeze of your smile
I rise to embrace your promise
I take your hand

You melt me
With the warmth that glows in your voice
And the fiery burn of your touch
I thaw to enter your river
I drink you in

You intoxicate me
With the taste that smears on your lips
And the heady scent of your hair
I inhale to lap your desire
I breathe you in

You soothe me
With the balm that seeps from your words
And the calming stroke of your sighs
I pause to detect your whisper
I hold you close

You inspire me
With the care that aches in your heart
And the shy wisdom of your ways
I dream to conjure your shadow
I find you home

Icarus: Favourite Love Poems

This creative collection, now in its 2nd edition, brings together love poems by Wayne Visser. The anthology traces love’s agony (“Broken Dreams”) and ecstasy (“Galaxies Cart-Wheeling”), from first blush (“Almost Strangers”) to full bloom (“Say ‘I Do!’”), as we fly to love. You’ve given me the gift of golden wings / The endless sphere of blue imaginings / The chance to rise above the silver clouds / The will to cast off untold ghostly shrouds / Don’t fly too high / Don’t rise too fast / Don’t tease the sky / Don’t taunt the past / You’ve given me the hope of warmer days / The blessed kiss of the sun’s fiery rays. Buy the paper book / Buy the e-book.
