A Day Will Come

Insulated in layers of clothing
I run from house to car 
from car to house
The weather stings as it contacts
my skin 
I long for you friend 
You taunt me during the winter 
playing hide and seek with my feelings 
When you come to me 
the air so frigid 
my pleasure evaporates 
but I look 
and I watch 
and I wait 
A day will soon come when 
you will entice me to you 
I will watch as you amuse yourself 
On the deck with shadow puppets 
and I will come to you 
I know now as I step into you 
I will be filled with desire 
for your warmth 
I will shed my layers and 
let my skin bask in your glory 
The glow of your love will tend 
to every part of me 
I have longed for you 
Satisfy this craving that has 
Sustained me all these many months 
Bathe me that I might savor 
this time with you 
and indulge in the ecstasy 
of our time together

    "The glow of your love will tend to every part of me." Just one example of WOW! "On the deck with shadow puppets".....this adds a great air of mystery and musing to the piece. Oh, yes! I enjoyed this one mucho. Love, daver

    Now cut that out. Poor guy is gonna think he died and went to heaven. Thanks for your comments and yes you can use Battle Scars any way you want. Too many people only see the anger and not the beautiful kid behind it all. God Bless. Vince

    Hi Laura, this sweet reflection can be taken two ways. From the perspective of awaiting spring's warm sun (on the deckwith shadow puppets) and also as one who waits for her lover to return in the coming months. Absolutely beautiful! Carolyn

    ". . . but i look and i watch and i wait. . . /with shadow puppets" Well. . . what can I say except for "thanks" in enjoying what I write. . . while I enjoy you. Must be great to be you in some coffee shop somewhere. . . just absorbing, the way you do. Yup, one to another -- well done on this piece Laurie. . . dangerously close.
