L. B. Mek

rude Awakenings



inching close - Sun beamed strokes

flowing through slim curtain holes


blurred wrinkles within eyelid shutters

flushed red inside eyeball craters 


winced agitations of hibernating lovers

stretched fingers roaming dishevelled covers


finding warm - comforting curves

tingling sensations of familiar nerves


quickly slapped hands dictating restraint

widely awake and murmuring complaint

    A familiar picture your impressive pen paints behind many drawn curtains as morning is breaking.........very well stated L.B.

    • L. B. Mek

      indeed a common scene, though only for a lucky few it seems sometimes
      thank you Fay

        I'm not sure if its 'all too familiar-nes' is necessarily good or bad, lol
        thanks Amigo

        A great write as I've said before and I am indebted to you for your generous comments - now I've got something to live up to. And I'll certainly save the write.

          first time I have ever corroborated on anything I have uploaded, this is a landmark moment for me and it was a privilege to work with someone of your calibre, glad you liked it
          thank you!

          Some people are just cranky in the morning. There will be no loving until they are all sorted out and feeling better. A cup of tea or coffee might have saved the day. A picture all too familiar to many folks.Well done. - Phil A.

            so very true, where would we be without our morning beverages

              Ha, well luckily the snoring moved us apart into our own beds! But I think I remember the theme of your write, these days I get cats clawing my feet as I awaken ,

              Nice GLENIT Bee, From Michael,

                lol, the 'luckily' in first line of your comment and 'I think I remember' in your 2nd line is what most people fear when the word marriage is proposed,
                glad you could have some fun with this write and I agree Michael's Glenit accounts for 75% of the light-hearted element I was aiming for
