This Man Within.........

The very next time you feel something
it may be him
A caress .....but from within ......
not what you might expect
A finger drawing down the side of you're neck
light as a breeze
Or his fingers pulling back the
hair over the top of your ear
Do not fear's just
This man within......
A warm breath on the lobe
of your heart.......and now
and then your ear......
His thumb and one finger
encircling your wrist........
As he marvels at how
delicate your hands are.....
This man within.....
Yes ........I know .......
but it's true ....there is a man
who would do these things
just for you.......
This man within.....
As you shower he would love to touch
the soft curls at your neckline
as you lather your hair
He blows away the soft soap
suds at your breast
This man within.......

This poem sends a delightful shiver throughout my body. It's words seductive and single out the reader as 'the one'.

Well, ahorseback, how am I (now fanning myself), meant to get through my working day!!!!

Beautiful :)

Do not fear's just the

This man within

(Is the the redundant or intentional, just a question)

SO this hub could go either way, my dear, lol. And it is lovely, too. I really need to read your stuff. You have grown so much as a poet. I think hubpages is wonderful, in its allowing us to work through our own process and discover this POET within. Thank you so much again for commenting on whatever hub you did, not mine as I recall. Rediscovering these from a male pov is breathtaking.
