Pray to Stay


Last night I held my lover close

 and spoke of dreams and lust ‘til dust.

Quietly, I fell asleep

 within his arms our love to keep.

I miss my lover in the day,

 while we’re apart,

 while he’s away,

 and think of him, I often do,

 the way he holds me, strong and true.

I wonder if my lover feels

 me missing him,

his golden touch, for it I yearn.

He must be longing too, I know,

for in my heart I burn,

 awaiting his return.

At night, a simple kiss divine

or if he chooses, I make him mine.

But in the day, when he’s away, in his love

 I pray to stay.

Once heart,mind, and body have forged that bond you sometimes wonder if it is felt in equal portions by both parties. Well conceived and crafted work!

Correct assumption! After forging that bond, you gotta hope that it stays with both parties enduring ever after. Thanks!

A beautiful expression of love and desire. You bring truth to the fondness the heart feels brought on by absence. A great write.

Thanks so much for your kind comments, glad you stopped by, hope you'll read more sometime. I will certainly return the favor.

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
