Defenceless - Poem by David Taylor

I would caress your heart
with tender handed words
and smooth your brow of worries
with such sweet scented verse
and first approaching as from behind
so that I am unexpected found
no name can reach your mind
before love pierces defenceless skin
which peels away beneath my gaze
and poetry melts your heart within.

    Sigh... defenceless indeed. Any lady whose skin is pierced by the seeping in of poetry knows exactly how difficult it is to resist... HG: -) xx (Report) Reply
