Poetry: Two Love Poems


Here are a two love poems I’m working on for a contest.
Spicy hot!

Saturdays Song
Sunny Saturday
Beams filter through
The sheer curtained window
Onto the stage of us;
A bed of messy covers

Softly, gently
you sing and strum
I lie next to you and listen
watching your fingers move

Our song of love
Fills the room
Our hearts
Our minds
Mix in the melody

Your fingers travel down
the cords of my spine
“Play me, love me
Like you loved that song”

…and you do

Dream of a Lover
I dreamed of you
Once before this time
I knew you before
Once before this life

Your walk and smile
Your eyes and caress
Your mind and spirit

Two pieces missing
For life times
Coming together at last
