Cloudburst…

the rain could not drown

the fire in our hearts that day

nor could the humid frigid air

borne upon the storm front

slow the rising and falling in our chests

if ever a heartbeat could be heard

like a thunder-clap through soaked

cotton and denim

our embrace was proof enough

that skin could conduct sound

for when I gently took her chin

between thumb and forefinger

and her eyes looked up at mine

through the dripping curtain of her

chestnut locks

the moment our lips touched

lightning split the earth

    Eric, this is truly beautiful, especially these lines:

    “for when I gently took her chin
    between thumb and forefinger
    and her eyes looked up at mine
    through the dripping curtain of her
    chestnut locks
    the moment our lips touched
    lightning split the earth”

    Truly beautiful, indeed.

  3. Eric – you know I absolutely adored this. 😊 I’ve been lucky enough to experience this feeling, it is truly awe inspiring and an indescribable sensation. Hoping to experience it again in this lifetime. I hope you know the feeling. 💕

  4. Full of beauty and passion but, for some reason, these lines struck me (I know, I’m hilarious).

    if ever a heartbeat could be heard
    like a thunder-clap through soaked
    cotton and denim
    our embrace was proof enough

    #mast 💕

  5. Romantic and beautiful
