Sleeping With The Enemy


See what you want to see
Don't Look at me!
You are staring you are watching;
Eat what you can't be

Come sleep by my side
The whole world is our playground
Don't make a sound
Stop clowning around

In the mist of the night,
You keep me from crying

I wipe off the taste of your lips
You kiss me starting at my inner hips
You broke me in a way..
I hate to say your love is better every day 
I deny you, the one thing I can't say

You are my pillow
Where I rest my legs,
Can you feel me~
This moment feels right
I just want to die here, 
Die here ~ 
Die here by your side

I sleep with my eyes wide open,
I sleep with the enemy by my side
Come here and hold me
After you watched my worlds collide
Come here and love me
I'm yours till the end of time
You can rock me!
Under the moon and its rhyme
I put it all to a side, how I hate you inside
I can't let go
I just want you to know
I'm a fool in love with you
Even if it doesn't show!

    SKAT, this poem is from-the-heart honest while exhibiting exquisite poetic language. It's an understatement to say that your poems are magnificent. The muse is surely your constant companion. Kudos!

    Honestly written from your inner soul. Sometimes you don't get a choice of who you fall in love with. It just happens but not always for the right reason...

    Dear Skat, After perusing your poems, I ran across this gem. It really speaks to the beauty of abandoning oneself in the high wire act of intimacy, and the need for the unspoken, as a way to capture the transcendence of the indescribable. wonderful poem lots love michael

    Captivating and erotic with erratic confusion torn in lust. Thank you for commenting on my poem "Timeless Oxford" So this one is a winner, I have yet to learn what that means. Happy New Year. Dr Neil Stewart McLeod
