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.
