Waking at dawn, a primal time,
little death, then the rise and shine.
Bellicose barking, blackbird alarms the
sun, who rips you from my arms.
Milk train rattles, postman swings,
The gate against the bin – again.
Eyes stay shut to daily trial,
Willing the darkness to stay - awhile.
Were you here, were you now,
did I feel you at all?
Your body inside me,
embrace like a shawl?
Breath on my neck?
Pulling me close,
‘gainst fear of losing
What I want the most.
You are the night , stolen to here,
kidnapped by dawn, a constant fear.
Dreams mislaid, to wake with dread, where
nothing is left but your heat in my bed.

This would have been an excellent submission to 10th Daughter of Memory
word verification: sinchef — the devil
BTW check out the narrator of my last entry to the 10th DOM, Between the Sheets, you may recognize her.
amazing amazing :) this is the kind of poem that I want to memorize :)
Thank you both. Although not perfect, I kind of like this one!
I like this, Minx.
I say everyone should hsve call in sick that day.
If you have a hot lover in your bed in the morning, Mac, then it is definitely time for a 'sicky'!!
Wow... Minx that was perfect.
Scarlett & Viaggiatore
Heck, these days I'd settle for a worm one Minx ;)
Thank you, Scarlett, glad you said 'intimate' - I did think it might be a bit soppy for some!
Mac, never settle for anything less than you think you deserve! Worm indeed - oh please!
pee ess - were you aware that we now have two dicks running our country? Have either of you got a spare bed - I think I might emigrate!!
Very nice. Poignant. Just like a sex dream.
Nothing wrong with a sex dream, Rita, beats dreaming about washing the dishes!!
Well, I type fast sometimes and my fingers are stubby and it was dark in the room so I couldn't see the keys well, I was wearing sunglasses, had a flat tire....
Shit, I was sloppy and didn't check my spelling. I am sorry. I meant 'warm'.
And, no. I will not settle, thank you.
On a happier note, I have a fairly big place with a couple of spare beds should you decide too many Dicks are over there. But, be aware, we have our share of dicks here too.
Jeez, Mac, I was just about to write that I was well aware of your dicks - thank God I didn't!!!!
All I can think about now is the "Dicks" speech from the film Team America.
How wonderful to see the words flowing again. Long may they continue. xxx
Mac - heh heh - love that!
Yoo hoo, Debi, I am trying to flow, really I am....
To all readers of Mutleythe dogsdayout
I am so terribly sorry to break this news:
Rob, the author here on blogger of mutley the dog, and my beloved partner in life died peacefully in his sleep in the early hours last Friday, the 21st of May.
I would have preferred to email readers privately. That would have been best, I know. So sorry. Simply it is this - I am heart-broken.
At some near time I will post properly, as Rob would wish - a celebration!
Thanks, Kate. I am devastated.
I will post something later when I have got my head together
