My Pleading Heart
My Pleading Heart
By Tony DeLorger © 2011
The warmth of the morning sun,
stirring me from the depths of dreams,
brings me to thoughts of you.
Breath shallow, day beckoning,
I reside in half-consciousness,
imbibing memories of your touch,
your sweet fragrant body,
warm and succulent next to mine.
I reach across to you,
but you are not there,
and I am thrust into reality, wanting.
A wandering mind revives me,
keeps me in your dream,
alive and captivated,
your lips enticing, your eyes pleading.
your soft curves swallow me whole.
I miss you so, each second an eternity without you,
my heart pleading, my soul longing.
How did I ever live without you,
and now found, my bed is empty,
my heart yeaning for more.
This ocean between us shrinks to a pond,
each day recedes to a second,
because meaning exists only when we are one,
together in the tender arms of love,
and I cannot survive without you, I don’t want to.
I turn away from morning, and there you are,
your eyes, deep in emotion, fill me,
bodies collide and souls sigh.
My mind relents and I am lost within you,
melding into one life,
each sensation alive and exploding.
I breath you in, my hands absorbing your every cell,
my thoughts evaporate into us,
writhing, enraptured, being.
You are me and I am you,
and love cradles us,
in the soft folds of life.
