Never let me go


Those smoldering eyes
They have made me your captive
You have bewitched me

I watch your fingers 
As they work in the kitchen
Deft and beautiful

The warmth of your smile
Soft words as you speak to me
They play with my heart

You shine like the sun
With you I can live again
We both will flourish

Your voice like a song
Such sweet melody of love
In time with my heart

I idolize you
Put me in your sweet prison
Never let me go

  7. Oh! the delight of the presence put together with yearning and the fear of losing. "Prison" is a sad replacement for a heart! I love the complexity of this poem which pretends to be simple.

  10. Submission to love is sometimes a scary thing to do. But having that experience is worth trying.

    Have a nice week ahead, Robin.

    Once captive one is worst off than being captivated. One just surrenders!
