A Woman's Touch


You say my name.
Your deep voice slides through me,
And lands in my swollen depths.
You mean something to me.
My yearning for your love,
Opens a warm universe in me,
A testimony to the depth of my feeling for you.
I would enfold every part of you in my healing warmth,
I would make you see the other side,
Of all you have known.
And the light of loves understanding,
Would shine from you.
You would emerge from inside me,
A new man.
Strong, impervious to all,
But this woman's touch.

    oooooh, what a nice poem to read! Much similar to my poem 'A Gentle Touch'.
    My yearning for your love,
    Forms into nectarous droplets,
    A testimony to the depth of my feeling for you.
    Yes, I can understand that quite well. (Report) Reply

    Men are like a garden that needs care and affection to produce the best harvest.
    Without, it becomes overgrown with weeds, and fruit and vegatables go to seed. (Report) Reply

    Free style, like mine.
    I love your poems like fresh air
    I agree with your thoughts on women
    Who can bring out the best of men
    And also the worst of men
    I can be demon and saint at the same time.
    They are precious creatures!

    Keep up the good works!
    Thanks (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
