Each Time I Wake (standard:poetry, 114 words)
Author: Ira L. WhiteAdded: Jan 06 2003Views/Reads: 1911/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
When you get used to someone you love waking up beside you for years, how do you feel when they are gone?

Each Time I Wake 

In that too brief instant 

When on dark raven wings 

Dreams prepare to take flight 

And my hand slides blindly 

Along the walls of my mind 

Fumbling for the dread switch 

That opens sleep filled eyes, 

I trip over your warmth 

And I suddenly feel 

The rose petal softness 

Of your flesh against mine. 

The fullness of your kiss 

Is pure as spring lilies. 

The sweet musk of your scent 

Makes me stir deep inside. 

Your love spoons around me 

In the twilight of dreams 

My last thought of the night 

Is of our house and home. 

As the circuit completes, 

My first realization 

Is that I am sleeping
