Distractions of a Lonely Night

Distractions of a lonely night at rest,
Empty dreams bereft of fascination,
This weight of solitude upon my chest,
Solely I await emancipation.
Then morning breaks in awesome bands of gold,
With rising sun a day is newly crowned.
A welcomed comforter against the cold,
So too my love for you is newly found.
To breathe and drink your love once more I dare,
Renewed again to eat a loverís feast,
And sated thus, devotion to declare,
My loverís litany each day increased.

To shout my love to all that care to hear,
My Sweet, sheís everything that I hold dear.

David~
This like all your other
pieces is quite lovely. You
have showed your heart truly
in this one! I enjoyed it very
much. Take care and keep up the
excellent writing!

It's up to you to make it happen."

I absolutely love everything that I have read of yours.  I just read them...sigh...and read them again.  They have such an easy flow that you could not stop in the middle, even if you had such an absurd desire to do so.

A wonderful poem, I can relate to the first half. I know these lonely nights you talk of and you described them perfectly.
maybe one day I will be able to relate to the second half.

Distractions of a lonely night at rest,
Empty dreams bereft of fascination,

Solely I await emancipation.

With rising sun a day is newly crowned.
A welcomed comforter against the cold,
So too my love for you is newly found.
To breath and drink your love once more I dare,
Renewed again to eat a loverís feast,

excellent piece

Wow.  This is powerful, David.  All I can do is sigh...

Do you write these to a fantasy lover, or  does there exist an actual flesh-and-blood recipient of your poetic outpourings of passion?

-emma, who is anxiously awaiting your next installment

emma,
   There definitely does exist a real life recipient of my outpourings of passions. She is the love of my life and the only reason I write.
