Make This Last

Please make this last forever, Dear, and bid the moon not disappear. For when it does, then like a brash, will come the light of day to dash this night as soft as warm cashmere. You say sweet words and are sincere, but love can die and leave a gash, and passion’s sure to turn to ash. . . Oh, can we make this last? I touch your face. . . you are so near that as I whisper in your ear, I see upon your cheek a lash. Now make a wish, and in a flash I’ll have it off. Please ease my fear - Oh, Darling, make this last! Feb. 14, 2014

    This gal doesn't sound too sure of her man. Tell her she is terribly vulnerable. Good stuff, Andrea. Love, daver

    I so enjoyed the thoughts in this poem. We usually sense when it's not going to last, which makes the fire burn much more intensely, pleasure and pain. I've gone 68 years w/o knowing the fallen lash wish. Can you believe it? Congratulations!
