Mr. Slow Learner

I have learned something worth learning.

Sure, I know how to touch your body a thousand different ways.

But it’s love that brightens the sky.

And making you happy is the greatest turn-on of all.

it's one of those things we want the one we love to say to us, that's all that matters, seeing them happy. i don't think there's anything better than loving someone and seeing them smile. it's brilliance, it's pure.

Sheri said...

You gotten this right. Love brightens the soul and everything else just gets better after that, doesn't it. Hands are good too though...

I like the photo but all this talk about touching has made me prudeish.

The picture perfectly matches the words...

Wine and Words said...

There are so many facets to a relationship. Touch/sex is actually so minor without all the rest. When we each focus on the happiness of the other, amazing fireworks!

Wonderful words.

That last line is my mantra. I'll assume the royalty check is in the mail?

Wise and loving words! Knowing that you and you alone brought true happiness to your love is as you wrote "the greatest turn-on of all." It feels amazing for both!

I love the exploding yellows captured in the photo. There are at least a 1000 hues that reflect the sentiment 'thousand different ways.' I admire your art, Ed, your photos and words. Thank you.

The Empress said...

This made me cry.

I have a poet for a son, Ed. He is 16. A beautiful, breathtaking boy...who has been shot down by every girl he has asked out in school this year.

They all pass him over for the football star, the swimteam star, the soccer star.

And he comes to me and I say, let's go for a long drive and I let him swear and drop the F bombs with the windows in the minivan rolled up.

And I drive and listen: and I say the F bombs along with him.

Eff them, sweet boy. They have NO IDEA! We scream it together.

Your post brought me to tears today.

Brittany said...

Gorgeous.

I wish more men like this, existed.

But most are just storm clouds.
