Joe Dawson

There’s no such word as no tonight. (Afterglow)


Notice of absence from Joe Dawson
I shall be away for quite some time. It's been great fun. Stay safe, stay well. Goodbye for now. Joe

Love-locked fingers, hearts entwined,

Calmer now, love's storm's passed by,

Lover's heads on heaven's breast,

A time to spoon, a time to rest.

 

A time when two lay back as one,

Combined in fortune, faith and love,

As moonlight traces love-moist flesh,

A kiss that fairly takes the breath.

**

Shall I tell of secrets spawned in dreams,

Of love's confessions, hearts revealed?

Eyes that transcend worldly ways, a

Whispered wish, a promise made. Does

Love demand we ask too much? Oh, yes

My dear, I'm sure it does.

**

Lips that linger, love that lasts, scorching

Fingers, soft caress, pillow giggles, eyes

Divine, there's no such word as no tonight.

    Nice words Joe, very romantic. Reminded me of a song by Luther Vandross 'love won't let me wait'.
