Poem: BeloVed One

My Beloved—take me, take me in your arms

where shield and armor guard, secret treasures—to our soul

and let me smell, let me smell, the freshness of love, each day

keeping our temple sacred, where paradise unfolds;

Rare gifts the eyes never seen, as you place, sweet scented oil,

upon my thighs, feet—love blooms, while we sail on oceans;

Where wave speak romance in their tongue:

Our eyes behold beauty, our eyes behold the sun;

Let me be the first, the first to view wisdom,

your heart—your strength

As oneness becomes our resting place:

“Beloved—do not deceive me!”

Take me, take me in your arms and hold me close,

Hold me firm yet gently, dear, yet respectfully,

Let us age, let us kiss, let us dance—gracefully.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
