My Lover - A Love Poem


With your eyes, caress me

Brown, beautiful, glazed

A look, so familiar

Leaving me amazed


Beckon me, my lover

A night of memorable bliss

First, pulling me closer

Sweet as sugar, kiss


Do whisper in my ear

The language of our love

With words, undress me

Release the inner dove


Flying free, and joyful

Together, we will feel

Caught up in the moment

Nothing else is real


You take my breath away

Gentle, and so much

Leaving me winded

By each and every touch


How I yearn to give to you

More than a man can take

My heart, soul, everything

Yes, the icing on the cake


Take my hand, my lover

Hold it all through life

Guide me to the bedroom

We made as man and wife


As each day grows long

Nighttime draws us near

To our nest, of love

Where everything is dear

Hi Temirah- Thanks for the lovely compliment :) Dan Burt's Little Black Dress is such a nice poem. And I have to agree, in some ways, my poem does remind me of it, too. Thanks for pointing that out. I think it's because of the love and attraction two people have for each other throughout the years :)

Thank you, Epi! Such sweet words, I truly appreciate it :) And yes, I do love to cook, I really enjoy trying new recipes... Who knows? Maybe I am the perfect woman ;) lol

And it shows! I look forward to reading more...

And i am glad to see that there are people out there that could pour their hearts with such ease. We need people like you and me in this world that are not afraid to show love. This world has become so bitter and hardened their hearts. We are needed!

Hey JinnyMarte,I agree with you 100%! This world does need more love, and as long as you, me, others keep writing, expressing, and sharing ourselves through our work... the word will be spread!! I really do look forward to reading more of your work as well, you're an amazing writer! :)


JinnyMarte 5 years ago

Well you are pretty amazing yourself! I wonder why Hub Pages does not make a compilation work or a collaboration from all the great poets here and make one remarkable and conmemorative piece...

Why thank you, Jinny :) And that's a great idea you've got there, that would definitely be a fantastic collaboration! A true masterpiece!

Wow, how did I miss this sweet gem of romantic poetry writing. Angela, you are a flame of passions in your poetry always. Your book "Bittersweet" on Amazon - I have to buy it now. I am a fan of your great writing. :)
