Missing Piece (A Love Poem)

These memories
sustained
by love
wish
hopes
and dreams.
Fruition
will come soon
oh so soon
so hard to wait
to keep within
excitement spilling over.
Sleepless nights
brain so fogged
as I await
needing
desiring
wanting
to be back in your loving arms.
Wearing your shirt
face burrowed in your pillow
still ever so faint
a whiff of you…..
the smell of you
love
hard work
oil
and grease.
Sweet dreams
smile on my face
I fall asleep wrapped in your scent.
Middle of the night
sudden warmth
arms around
I roll over
here you are my love
in reality.
Hold me close
let me embrace you
as I melt
slow sigh
my missing piece arrived home.

Miss You

I miss you
miss your arms around me
miss the smile you give me
when what I say
it makes sense to you.
You listen to me
listen like no one has ever done
making me wonder
who you are
what your game is with me.
Why do you reach out?
Why do you make me feel?
I was content for it to be playful
no emotions
no feelings.
You changed the game
or was it me?
And now we look at one another
eyes hooded with lust
with desire
with trust.
All I want to do
is crawl into your arms
to have you stare into my eyes
I want to wrap my legs around
draw you close
baby please draw me near.
We are scared
we are daring
we want one another
what we don’t want
is the pain
the fear
that we carry in our hearts.
