Romantic Tuesday -Stay With Me

Sometimes we just need to know that someone will be there for us – not to fix, not to talk, and maybe even not to listen – simply to be there and hold your hand



The sky darkens in my world

As her tears fall to the earth

The sun drops behind the mountains

The wind begins to blow fiercely


I try to heal her pain

With my words

But she tells me

She cannot be mended


She only wants to feel my love


I hold her face in my hand

Stare deeply into her eyes

And remind her

With all certainty


“I am here”

“I will not leave you”

“You are not alone”


Her tears flood the bedroom

Until we are floating in deep waters

She doesn’t want me to fix…



I fall silent

Wading with her

In a sea of unspoken thoughts

Until the storm passes


Romantic Tuesday – Unconditional


She supports me where I am at;

Not where she would like me to be.

She is a strong fortress of hope;

And I am inspired to live bravely.

So I continue on my path;

Not veering as I often do.

Because she holds onto my hand;

I know she will be there through and through.





Romantic Tuesday -Anticipation


She didn’t say a word

She just threw down her purse

Took off her dress

And collapsed onto the bed



Her lover walks into the room

With a single rose, strokes her

With the soft tip of the petal

From the back of her neck

Down to her right ankle


Startled, yet pleased

She lets out a soft moan

A shiver runs through her whole body

Energy she didn’t know she had


Suddenly awoken


What happens next

Romantic Tuesday – Lost In You

I’ve decided to join romantic Tuesday this week! Who knows, maybe every week! I thought it would be a good jump start back into writing. I hope you like it! 🙂



You stare, longingly, into my eyes

And I get lost, in your sea of blue

Your touch so strong and passionate

I melt into your skin, and we are one


Both excitement and fear, overwhelm my thoughts

My breath quickens, as I feel your body close

And I can feel my heart racing

Faster and faster, longing to be closer


My ear, pressed against your chest

I hear your steady heart beat

I feel your warm breath on my lips

Once again I am present with you


Time passes by like there are no clocks

Hours become days, days weeks

I stop counting the minutes until tomorrow

I am finally content, at peace; no more needs
