Lie With Me


Lie with me
in a golden field of sun-ripened corn
beneath a beckoning sky

We shall listen to the gentle breeze
rising and falling, rising and falling
in sweet crescendos
synchronised with our love –

whispering, whispering

Lie with me
we shall seal our togetherness
with moistened lips
and eager breaths

before the falling of the sun
and the coming of the mellowing night

    Ah! Free verse that says something with great sweetness and purity.A body with soul.
    So beautiful in expression. If you can can do this well without rhyme, so let it be.

    Its an exquisite composition and pleasure reading through.Its also the title of a British English film featuring love stories of London and the percussions of togetherness of an english woman who by chance fell in love with an english man in club, took a job for a family dream but the man was in the turmoil of womanizing and a decision hard to reckon with for a family.Watched that in 2008 and that too in London itself and tried to experience the pain and pleasure.Your poetry added valour and voice to the feminine character.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
