Love Song




Let us go where the night
is sultry songbird
crooning lyrics to moon
                  voluptuous red 

I'll twine my arms around your neck
& wait for time to uncurl
its sweet fruit in your hands
                  plump dark

Let us drift closer for a kiss
There's sharp edge in the air
crackling our skin electric
                 brewing storm
               
Our love song is playing
& I want to be carried far away            
swaying 
                drunk on moonlight                   
                                                    & you

  17. "Where the night is sultry songbird," oooh, what a phrase. From beginning to end, just like this night you've depicted, the poem oozes romance, sensuality, and the true meaning of "remember that night when...?" I feel like I'm having a hot flash... Amy

  21. A bone fide love poem, romance without droll sentimentality, and like some noted, with more than a pinch of steamy sensuality; liked the line /there's a sharp edge in the air/ crackling our skin electric/ brewing storm/ nice job.
