Come Home Darling


It's been long since you've gone.
Though we chat, regularly somewhat,
See you on Skype, every night,
Yet that's not enough, seems tough,
To live without you. It's nothing new!

The night before you left, we hardly slept,
Heightened emotions, kept us in motion.
Intense desires kept us afire, oh my dear,
What a climax of ecstacy was there!
The fury of love roared everywhere.

Now my body aches with pent up desire,
Like a volcano ready to erupt anywhere.
Loads of unspent love and desire
Await your arrival to feel and share.
Please come with the preparation you require!

Come home, darling, I can no longer bear,
The memory of that night, our bodies bare,
Fulfilled, inch by inch, with nothing to spare.
The thought kindles the physical desire,
Aches and spasms are caused by the flare.

    @ Naida Nepascua Supnet,
    Thanks for agreeing to the emotions expressed in the poem. Physical presence cannot be replaced by the virtual ones. (Report) Reply

    You talk of many couples afar but still making it through. Constant talking is not enough, never be enough. It will not suffice the presence needed.
    Ah, as always, very nice. (Report) Reply

    @Samantha,
    Yes, it is passionate. The poem was written with the feelings of separation when my love was on a tour of duty, away from home, for not too long (yet it was unbearable) .
    Thanks for sharing your sad feelings with me. It makes me feel I was able to communicate. (Report) Reply

    @Sandra Feldman,
    Yes, the fire of desire, to be with your love and to make love is overwhelming, all engulfing.
    I cannot thank you enough for your second line. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
