Touch Me - DUSK

the day
when my warmth
caressed your skin
and cocooned your heart
in blankets of soft smiles.
Gentle yet penetrating,
a balm that soothed life’s abrasions
with a rich elixir of summer
and a drizzle of sweet molten sunshine.

Re-live it and relay it back to me,
free me from this chilly-fingered grip
that squeezes the light from my eyes
and the colour from my breath.
Kiss me with soft shadows
and burnished highlights
that I may know
how it feels.
Touch me


Sharon Tideswell

    I have no idea what an etheree is, but this reads and flows so beautifully. Dusk in your part of the world must be amazing to inspire such a write! You are truly talented with words, I think there's no form you can't adapt to! Hmm...did I just give myself away with that? Haha, let's just say, I read a lot that's why! My thanks to you for stopping by my poems and for your awesome comments, made me smile. I'm glad you enjoyed reading them. By the way, anagrams are cool but my name isn't one ;).

    Great expressive work that reads like a winner to me..Good luck in the contest..Thanks for the kind review of my work..My mother died when I was fifteen months old and there were four boys and my dad to look after me..I ended up at my father's mother home in which she had another son with his five children so there were ten children for this 77 year old woman to care for and I was the baby of both families..She put me up for adoption..Sara
