I actually started to write a totally different poem but this one was rather insistent and demanded to be brought out into the world. I did finish the other one and may post it in a day or two - depending on what else happens.
A Game in the Afternoon - 30 Jan 10
Lovers meet Tempt with offers And dreams, To enter into places Where no one else can go Teasing, tempting Leading on, then Drawing back To tease again
In the warm afterglow Of day Watching the sun set Into the sea When the games have ended, The place where others Cannot go Still waits, welcoming Inviting us in
Pleasing on so many levels and, just as equally, surprising too - this was not the poem I expected.
This poem was actually birthed at the same time as "I Will Take You..." but it didn't feel right to post it then; thinking about it I felt that since life isn't all 'sweet and lovely' the occasional sad poem to illustrate this is valid.
Waking Nightmare - 13 Jan 10
Dream I lift aside the veil To look upon your face
In my sleep I watch you In your sleep I kiss your shoulder And your eyes Smile open
Awake There is no veil And you...not here
I gaze upon the empty pillow My throat knotting up I bow my head A single tear slips To land in that empty space Where I wish...
Sleep snatches painfully At my thoughts Dark thoughts in my mind Fitful sleep No rest
I wake Still alone
I shall return to sweetness and light for my next offering.

A quote I found...
"It takes a lot of courage to show your dreams to someone else."
I must be braver than I thought.
