An Illusion - Poem by Joan Hart

Your fingers electrify my skin
And send shivers down my spine
I’m so very aware
Of your hand in mine

And your breath across my neck -
It almost is too much
It doesn’t make sense how sensitive
I am to your touch

But in time the feelings fade,
Disappearing with the night
And your touch becomes a burden
As the morning sheds her light

And the minutes, they drag by
And through all this confusion
I slowly realize
It was simply an illusion

    Nothing last forever, the tension has to go. Things must die to be reborne. Good writing! ! (Report)Reply

    Hi Caroline,

    A very interesting twist. Exqusitely written. Provocatively poignant.

    A nicely crafted piece. You have a fine feel for poetry - and that's something that can't be learned. You're born with it. Looking forward to reading more. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply
