Icicles


It gave you pleasure,
melting my resistance
shining in the sparkle
you found in my eyes
twinkling treasure

Partially hidden from view
wrapped in glossy paper
you tore away layers,
ribbons untied

Held this gift in your gaze,
touched outer layers,
slipped in skillfully,
heat replaced cold,
closed my eyes, milky ways

I have often wished upon you
like some far off star
in the icy wintery sky,
and thought,

Darlin’, if you only knew

Man!  This was a great poem, with a KILLER last line.  Any man who reads that last line and doesn't "gulp" is made of stone.  I'm going home right now to see my Lorelei and make her see those Milky Ways.  Thanks for the inspriation.

LngJhnAg - thank you so very much! If this  inspired even the teeniest bit, then my day has been made!  Much thanks also for passing it through once again!
