Sipping Secrets - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Sipping Secrets
Date: February 5,2012

I inhaled the splendor of his song
Drank the secrets capped with foam
Reveled in a fleeting breeze
To sip the nectar of his tease

I harbored hope, when there was none
Joined the games, just for fun
But soon I felt, trapped and tied
Prisoner to the fire inside

Forever hard to let it go
While warming by the golden glow
My heart is prone to giving in
Lured by passion to his sin

A bad boy dressed in stainless steel
Never allowed to see or feel
Living by another's creed
Still trying to find what he believes

The nights so cold, they froze my soul
Tied me to his whipping pole
And fire alone just seems to chill
With nothing more to haunt or thrill

So many seasons pass me by
But I won't fret, or waste a cry
Mistakes I've made are all my own
I've always known where I belong

The passion warms, while it last
A moment's fun, in the past
I know ahead, the dawn awaits
But, still the sun…won't see me break

I'll keep the whispers of his song
All the memories, I still own
No one can take my dreams away
They'll see me through the shades of gray
