Sometimes we are afraid to let ourselves really feel our emotions, therefore letting time pass us by.

 Fallen Petals


I caught your chiseled silhouette against the moon lit window
You could have been awake,
The rhythm of your breathing so quiet and soft
I wanted to trace the curves of your body with my quivering fingers

But there was the fear of rejection from you
The fear of not being wanted as a real woman
I noticed how your eyes sparkled with mischief
Whenever you looked at me…Did you see the same sparkle in my eyes?

Your snake like smile invited me to venture closer to you
A captivating and well rehearsed trap
But the fear of rejection was always lying on my outer shell
I watched as the sands of time slowly drained the night
To expose golden rays peeking through the corner of the drapes

You moved restlessly, turning from side to side as I watched
Should I chance the pleasure of outlining your perfect silhouette?
Could I summon up enough courage to caress your beckoning lips?
You turn on your back, are you awake waiting for me?

Dare I wake you if you are asleep; to embrace your Roman structured body?
I feel the need to run my quivering fingers through grazing grass on your chest
There is an urgency to allow my hands to journey on an exploration
I continue to lie here, you are so tired, and sleep is of essence

There is a long trip in store for you; I guess I could wait until next time
Because next time we will both be ready
Eager to grab at each other
To slam our bodies in unison until we both climax

I will be here waiting with you in my heart
Once you have rested and eradicated those tortured thoughts
Once I have calmed my fears
You will feel the need to engulf me
            And I will steadily hold you tight.

Passionate write, I was feeling it.
Reviewed by Barbara Terry 6/21/2006
There is passion and romance in this, but there is also a fear of rejection too. Richard said it right, that there is a lot of emotion in "Your snake like smile", but this isn't the only part that has emotion. This whole poem is so emotive, one has to be stone cold not to feel all the emotion in this poem. Thank you Helen for sharing. Also thank you for reading my biography.

May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your dear friend, Barbie

A most passionate piece, Helen.
Reviewed by richard cederberg 6/20/2006
"Your snake like smile" there's a lot of emotion in those four words. Loving and wanting and not trusting all in the same moment.

Very complicated!
