Ask Me Again

Rating: 5.0
How did we come to be here, ask me again?
Quietly, resting with our eyes ajar,
intoxicated by each others skin,
we are but silence wrapped in spell,
he lays words in my mouth, slowly nibbling,
with my face inside his eyes… he asked me again,
to love again at that corner bookstore,
same time, same day, same second,
same year…
I say, ask me again, my mirage,
after all when lovers converge,
the sun turns into an ocean.

Hi Emu - This is revelationary - I love it. Scores a ten for structure (dynamic) contents (awesome) and impact (immediate) it is all a Good Poem should be. Line 3 is all about the sense of touch - it is so intoxicating - and so so important in a real loving relationship - TOUCH ME AGAIN. Line 5 The importance of words - that is why POETRY is such a Global Force - ASK ME AGAIN. Lines 678 The power of place - nostalgia - deja vu (disambiguation) - TAKE ME BACK TO THERE AGAIN. The ending is infinite. 'I say ask me again my mirage - after all when lovers converge - the Sun turns into an Ocean - AWESOME. Your last line is a beautiful poem - well done Emu thanks for sharing.
