Honeyed Love – A Collaborative #Love#Poem for #RomanticTuesday


The poem that follows is a collaboration I recently wrote with fellow poet Braeden Micheals.  As he explains in his bio he is:  “Born in the cold and lives in the warmth. A fan of Dr. Seuss. A lover of words. A man that can find light in the dark. A man that can see beauty in pain. A lyricist, writer, and a poet.”  His blog  Overflowing Ink always holds something unique, something provoking, something stirring.  We began with the beautiful quote, which is from Guillermo del Toro’s ‘The Shape of Water’. I found it So Beautiful, So Passionate…and it stirred both our imaginations, promoting a conversation between two lovers.  Braeden’s verses are in italics to designate his writing.  I hope you will enjoy the verse we’ve created.

“Unable to perceive the shape of you, I find you all around me. Your presence fills my eyes with your love. It humbles my heart, for you are everywhere.” 

You are the Breath of Passion
The Embodiment of all my Heart beats for,
Longs for,
All this understanding
So unworthy of the least of You,
Can ever perceive.

You are the blood in my veins
Saliva drippings from the fire ooze magic
All this longwinded gust
Soar through every inch of
my glowing urges

Stars that span the ebon Nighttide,
Miracles of Light and Time
are mere phantoms,
shallow and hapless,
Unremembered figments of Yesterday
Compared to the Depth of my Love

I can see fragments of the twinkles
Sweat pouring from the golden heavens
Caught in a whirlwind of passion
Your moans are magnetizing
Never ending cravings
Watching you grip the sheets,

All that Speaks of mystery
All that Whispers portentous enigmas
All the Hums with the Vibrancy of Forever
Are Fading shadows,
Dim and Meaningless
Compared to the Depth of my Passion

Caution tape ripped
Entering euphoria without bounds
Slippery and yet rough edges
Lip biting memories etched
Nonexistent tenderness
Unleashed saturations 

How I Sigh in your Sweet Embrace!
How my skin yearns for the Touch of Your hands,
How these lips long to be Kissed by
How I have waited,
Breathless, Trapped, Longing
For Your Sweet Honeyed Love!

A bellow of raw words
Intoxicating oceans
Commanding you to vulnerability
Taste the lava, taste the lava
Overwhelming fervor
Yearning for more 


I would like to thank Braeden for taking time out of his busy schedule to collaborate with me.  I always enjoy writing with another, and this was no different, while being effortless and delightful. Thank you!



    1. Thanks so much Penny! It was indeed quite stirring writing with Braeden 🙂 I’ve never written a love poem with a man, usually other women writers..and it was quite a difference perspective!
