Hold Me Close


Hold me close, under the sunset
and let Gods reds and oranges soothe your eyes,
like this is all a dream.

Hold me close, under the sunset.
You can kiss my neck a little, if you like.
Or better yet, walk my silk shirt off my shoulders.

Hold me close, under the sunset
and hear me chuckle as you do the same-
staring deep into my eyes.

Hold me close, under the sunset
in the middle of the park.
I don’t mind; with you it could be anywhere.

Hold me close, under the sunset.
Scream for me, scream for me
and light me up like all those years ago.

Hold me close, under the sunset-
I whisper to you as you close your eyes.
You’ve probably passed out…
never mind;
You won’t remember me, next time I slip something in your drink.

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
