honey-dewed sighs


honey, do you love me?

why don’t you say it louder

with your warm, strong hands

holding me closer until i melt

into your steady, beating chest

where i find the safest nest

within your steady heart  best

so hold me closer until i melt

into your strong, warm hands

why not say it louder–

honey, you do love me!

    Splendid. The reversal does add emotional strength to it effectively. Very enjoyable.

    Sweet and I love that middle turn verse turning this from questionning to positive affirmation of love!

    I think this one works well, Lynn. You got the two different meanings.

    Very nice love poem. I like how you made bold the center line. You could take the first, last and that center line as one poem.
