The delicate words that spill off your tongue,
that you whisper to me in my dreams
are heard like a symphony inside my heart.
You turn my brooding in to chocolate romance
with your kisses sweet like mother's milk.
Simple moments with you I crave to last an eternity...
Though I always must return to my sordid life...

You listen to the stories I recount...

I tell you how I light the flames
and how he blows out the candles...
I tell you how I long for recognition
when he leaves me in the shadows.
You listen to the times that I've been vexed,
frustrated, and angered...

I tell you how I've built the walls
to keep from falling down.
You listen as I share with you
my lonesomeness
that I make for myself
-because it's easier in that fashion.

But when I'm finished with my recounts;
when your task of attending to me is almost through,
I find my armour falling down
in a pile at my feet.

Sweet relief, wonderful,dear. Remarkable. On a personal level, that's what I'm here for. Thank you for your gifts to me, verse and otherwise.

Great work. I enjoyed your descriptive lines, especially this one: "You turn my brooding in to chocolate romance
with your kisses sweet like mother's milk."
