Can You Explain?
Author: Terrie*


can you explain the symptoms
that I have?
my heart is always singing
my heart is always glad

what makes me dizzy?
yet I still want to jump up so high?
why do I feel an electrical wave
ricochet inside my soul?

I do not know what a neon flash feels like
but I bet I can describe it very well
and i know you would surely tell
because you'd see me glow

when I hear his voice on the phone
I get so weak,
I feel my heart race out of beat

as I close my eyes
I can feel his words caress my bare skin
I can feel him gently clasp his hands against my face
I can feel his arms wrap around my waist

I can feel the heat from his body cling onto mine
I feel my self levitate to a higher ground
but can you explain the symptoms to me
of why I feel and taste life as I do?
because i'd like you to feel
and taste it too..

love is sweeter than candy....

Umm signing in you're soul, Heart pounding at every turn, is it or is it not, could it be this time or not, love calls at every turn but only when we are open, does our heart hear it's knock. Again Terrie you write so well.

Clive, indeed it is love...

vibrations of his singing heart enter my soul..
the taste of love, such a sweet sensation
felt between two hearts i almost passed a love
w/a sweet caring heart.i indeed am in full bloom
and very much in love...thanx to an understanding man, whom put up such a sacrifice for me...HUGS/LOVE
