In Love's Absence - a Poem

Updated on February 26, 2015

Love lingers on finding you in the midst of darkness...

Source

In the absence of love...comes a wishful longing

WISHFUL LONGING

Before the sleeping sun wakes to rise

My mind was filled with thoughts of you;

With faint smile and dreamy eyes

You and I were under taboo…


A closed door and absent light

Seduced breathless kisses to the floor;

On a creased blanket soft and white

We desired for more.


Quiet stolen moments embraced that night

The only entertainment was the sound of a gentle rain;

A glimpse of your face through spectral light

Took my every breath away, again.


Our secret…soon unveiled

Like the bare-naked silver moon;

The door, the blanket, all revealed

I guess, it was too soon.


Then, I realized it was all a dream

And to find meaningful words to say;

Someway, somehow as it may seem

I long and ache to be with you this day.

      Thank you, Tammy! I went through my old poems that I had compiled in the past. This one was composed in 2004. Thank you too for the vote and I am very pleased that you've thought of sharing it. :)
