Hush me Now

Hush

In the dark hush of dawn,

Before the dew rests on the lawn.

I feel your arms envelope me tight,

Not sure if I want to see the light.

I lay my head upon your chest,

You shush me now; you know what’s best.

Legs entwined like young oak branches,

Tell me the time, what are the chances?

Draw the covers up round us tight,

Morning thrill, you’re quite a sight.

Then turn the clock face, turn it away,

So we can steal another day.

Please hush me now, while twilight lingers,

I want the rush from your soft fingers.

Take me down our lover’s lane,

Before I go completely insane.

This is a beautiful poem, and describes my life. Every morning, I awaken, wrapped in my husband's loving arms.

Namaste.

Very thrilling and sexy. I loved the entwined bodies, it breaks one into a sweat:0) Seriously though your blend of verse was captivating and I hung one each word. Very well done. I am impressed.

..reminds me of Kate Bush - high praise indeed and very very sensuous - if people could make love the way you write poetry - there would be no more war or NFL football!

Whew!

Had to jump in the old cold shower after this one. (laughing) Sorry, that's probably not a very classy comment for such a well writen dity, but it's true, and I'm not the shinning emblem of class anyway I'm afraid. (note my Hub handle) Anyway, good work, and I'll be reading more.

Colin,

NO MORE NFL?? I thought you loved me man. Dude, you're killing me! (sniveling)

I enjoy your writing styles, your words show thoughts and passion, but do not delve into the graphic tasteless verbiage that can take away from a well written piece. perhaps you would enjoy "My Special Friend" a short I wrote as part of a challenge to romantic venues. It is on my hub-home page. Once again, very nice work!

Now I Know Bliss, The Lion and the Lamb, and now this one....There is not a shower cold enough! I'll have to see what's handy....hmmm.

Hush Me Now is so reminiscent, sadly, of a time past, when I would awaken in the arms of my lover. But now, as David Gilmour sings "we're two lost souls swimming in a fishbowl, year after year...."

Your poetry makes me long for a time long gone in my dismal marriage. But thank you for letting me know that I'm still alive and have desires. Fabulous writing.

Badegg, your comment is bittersweet. So glad you liked this poem, but it saddens me to hear the flames have gone cold for you. I would rather further comment privately. Thank you for the follow as well. I need to read more of your work, and since sleep escapes me tonight maybe I will do that. Keep writing Del. ~ lvh
