Whispered kisses on my cheek.
A grin plays on my lips; so coy and so meek.
My muscles are sore.
In the heat of passion I begged for more.
I stretch my body giving you a show.
You aren’t really there, but how could I know?
The touching, the kissing, making love until dawn.
Now come this morning you are gone.
My back has gone cold.
Longing to be someone you’d hold.
My fingers run along your pillows dent.
You never even gave me the slightest hint.
Now my heart is breaking.
The tears are falling.
Your name I’m calling.
I stare at your side so empty and cold.
How many secrets left untold.
It hurts too much; I turn away.
Forever wishing you would stay. This is the first poem I've written since high school. Thank you to those that encouraged me to try. It may take me forever, but I do listen. Eventually.
