National Poetry Month: Exhale

 This month we recognize the amazing art that is poetry. I love poetry and have written several of my own. So when I saw that this was a chance to be part of something so awesome, I jumped at it. Below, you'll find not only MY poem, but links to several other poems. I hope you enjoy!


In the peak of twilight's finest hour
I look into your eyes 
I see your heart
A picture of you and I
My heart starts to soar
Then you smile
Your skin crinkles around those soulful brown eyes
The window to your soul lights up
You touch my face with a gentle caress
The power I feel from your finger tips
Revives my nerves
You lay your head on my breast  
You exhale.
This, a picturesque vision of love
Is a feeling indescribable
Yet, I know this feeling will last
Forever and Always
Finally, I look at your sleeping face
In the light of early dawn
I see your lips softly part
Together, we exhale.
