How Do I Regard Thee? – A Poem

How do I regard thee?
High
How do I express this?
Eyes

I take you in on the sneak
I sip you slowly like fermented drink
I’m getting a buzz
Now I’m envisioning hugs
Of epic proportions

Long
Close
Tight
Momentous

Nothing but distance between us

I’m longing for friction
But first let me get lost in your diction
It’s accentuated with history
Unveiled and honest but textured with mystery

That’s how I like it

How do I regard thee?
High
How do I express this?
Sighs

I’m turning and tossing in slumber
You’re an invader of dreams
A subject of wonder
I want to lose myself in your thunder

Let the rain fall down
As the mist gathers round
And drops from my center
The special place only you enter
My heart weeps for you

I envelop you tender only to have to let go
As our chapters close
I know the love affair will begin again
As soon as I pick up my pen

    ‘My heart weeps for you’~ and I resonate with everything you wrote…
    Wish I could express it in other forms than sighs 🙂
    So happy everytime you post something ~ your writings have a soul.
    Lots of love Tameka!

  2. Thanks so much Melissa! I am making myself find the time to post now. I am working a lot lately so it’s a challenge, but it can and will be done. Hugs to you! 🙂
