Love's Touch - Poem by Lonnie Hicks

Love's blind touch gropes in our dark
and I hear you giggle
reveling in the hide and seek
in your cape of satin sheets
the lights out
pitch black
the only sound
is of stealthy breathing
which first lurks

and then leaps

straight onto my back

I shriek the shriek

and you the vampire bat

clutch my trembling neck

yelling gitty up! gitty up!
and I fall

down pretending dead

as you pause

unseen in the dark

and then I rise

and blind leap

catching you hiding

at the side of the bed;

you shriek

and outside the kids bang on the door

saying
'if you two don't
cut it out

we're calling 911.'

Let us in!

We giggle;
crouched inside.
