_-BREATHE-_

Updated on June 19, 2013

Rise and fall

Her breath

Rise-and fall

Her chest

In the darkness, as she sleeps

I watch her silhouette

Her breast

Breathe out-breathe in

Fall, rise

Like the moment her being did

First fill my eyes

In love I did fall

Emotions intense did rise

Like a child on a seesaw

Lost in play

Up, down

Rise, fall

Love you, my darling

Breathe for me

I fall

Deep into sleep

Deep into love

I breathe

      Darn, Sir Wayne, I just had to re-visit a Wayne Barrett classic as my poetic lullaby before I go to bed here at 3:04am and hopefully put me in the mood for deep sleep (REM) and erotic dreams so I wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and a tent in my bed and then drink neurotic coffee. (lol)

      And then thank Uncle Wayne - and say man that was better than viagra.

      Because these words here are like poetic Viagra. lol

      Just listened to the Yardbirds and now the party is over

      Ed: Thank you again! Yes, Beth is the one who introduced me to the Hub, and now my youngest daughter is getting involved.

      The painting is mine as well as a few others that I have used on my Hubs. The woman in the painting is my beautiful wife, Brandie.

      .....simple, pure and perfect, Sir Wayne.

      It's so erotic too - I could visualize this one in my mind - and yes it took my breath away - I so do love your words here - it's great art in the making - sending you warm wishes and good energy with a nice cuppa tea and some shortbread. lake erie time ontario canada 9:59pm

      This is incredible. So very passionately beautiful. And that painting - I nearly cried looking at it. Gorgeous - the color scheme, the little details, the way she is positioned seems so perfectly imperfect... I adore this hub!

      Some of the best poetry I have read manages to say a great deal with a minimum of words. You accomplished that here with this excellent piece of writing.
