dusk arising

you ask me why?



she asked of me
the unanswerable
"tell me you cad,
why you love me?"

For the way you make me feel
turning everyday problems unreal
for this spring my step now knows
and the vigour which tickles my toes
the adoration i have for your eyes
the curve of your neck, your soft sighs
the way you've included me in
making us a quite impossible sin
and how softly you coat the mundane
the foolishness you make life's game
your impossible way with my stove
your beautiful, pert little nose
the indignant way when you curse
and that picture of me in your purse
and that one thing which makes you - just you
whatever it is, i've no clue

        One never knows - just the little things I guess - great write (pleased you wrote 'sighs' and not 'thighs' - or there again...!)

          I knew that temptation as I wrote it and guessed each reader may have a similar thought.... thighs - sighs ... the two just follow somehow.

          Beautiful, imbued with the warmth that only 'being in love' can bestow, although my favourite part is in the author's comment section:
          '... but I know what love is for it has journeyed with me, romanced me, and pleasured my existence along the way to here'

            You enjoyed this didn't you - so did I. But it was even more enjoyable in the flesh! Thanks LBM, we all need a bit of loving along the way.

            "Picture in the purse," my wife has one of those, she uses it to frighten off muggers.
            I ain't got a clue either,even after 50 years.
            Good words today
