Of poems and misspelled wants

Spread the love

The night draws moments upon my flesh
as I lie breathless beneath the cold moon,
searching for warmth in your eyes.

Desires burn every fibre of my being
I am lost in my yearning of you,
greeting the season with a half-smile.

Sunshine soft spreads over startling sky
as poems one after another make their
way onto virgin sheet of paper.

    Sanaa, I was not startled in the least to read your poem using the first 4 Different words from the others. Hooray. I can count on you to bring the passion to the paper. Virgin paper is all the more tantalizing, and I love “Sunshine soft spreads over startling sky…as poem…”
    It brings more than a half smile to my face to read you. Thanks for participating.
