Somewhere in the night
I feel you feel
As your arms enfold
Under too-old cover.
Steal, you know.
In my dream, in yours.
Still I am warm.  Happy
To trade rights -- to cover;
To breathe -- feel us feel
As rain psssts through
Sheets big on wearing thin,
Thinking to widen the gulf
Between well-constructed
Shields that still break
Just like that.  Shhhh. 
You know you know
You need

No false coverups here. Coverings are so comforting and many learn from it and to be wise in their love.

Liked this one. Kinda like putting on an old glove, one that is tattered and not quite up to snuff, but . . . Comfortable. Liked this one.

A passion that never dies and a beautiful reminder to always keep things sweet in a loving effort to endure a long-term relationship. This is the best kind of poem, Pea.

Under the cover of the covers, as long term lovers touch and feel and sense the moods and desires of each other without the need for words. This short poem may be a "breather but it expresses a wealth of emotions in the reader. well done Phyllis.
