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,

like children,

in the soft folds of life.

      I really enjoyed your poem . I miss my husband when he is not here especially during the night . So I make the most of it while he is with me.
