A Gentle Touch


When you touch me, I can say it's you
Even if my eyes are closed.
For your palms are like text books
That I've read so many times over,
And so they appear so familiar.

When your breath falls on my back,
I can say it's you, without turning around,
For my back has known no other warmth.
All know a soft touch gives goosebumps,
Who knows a silent breath too can do that?

When we hold each other lip locked,
Our tongues do the talking and explore
Like an adventurer to an unknown land.
No force can open your closed eye lids,
Until the tongue talking is over.

A gentle touch, yes a gentle touch!
Can spark two bodies afire.
Neither wants it to remain gentle,
As they want to explode in unison,
And gently cool like an extinguishing fire.

    Beautiful feeling. I have always preferred poetry with rhyme and rhythm, white poems are prose with structure of a poem, but they lack the music, however it is also art (Report) Reply

    @ Beach Girl,
    Thanks for reading my poem and commenting on it.
    'I love how this poem begins with subtle passionate feelings, but then suddenly ignites into something more. Loved it, '
    You are right, the passion increased profoundly, and suddenly.
    May be I had felt like that while I was writing the poem.
    Thanks for the nice words and the generous 10/10. (Report) Reply

    @Beauteous Victory,
    Thanks for your high praise, am truly inspired!
    Is this an eye catcher? Didn't catch too many eyes in seven months. Only ten pairs of eyes seem to have read this and as many souls have left some words behind. (Report) Reply

Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
