Sleepless Nights

I lie beside you
Trying to keep still
Yet…this need is eating away at me
I sigh
Sure that my desire
Is working its way out of my body
Glowing out through my pores
I’m sure it will hover over you
And entice you with it’s aura
Pulling you awake…
And I wait….
The minutes drag on
My thoughts consumed
By images that sear into my flesh
What could be….

I can’t quench the fire
Sleep is impossible
Not now
“Wake up!” My mind shouts
Yet my lips are sealed
My breath comes in muted gasps
“Please…wake up”

“Selfish, selfish!”
My mind cries
“Let him sleep
It’s been a hard day
He needs his rest.”
I acquiesce

I toss and turn
In my mind I converse with you
“It’s been awhile
Surely…you want it too
I don’t know what to do!
How can I sleep 
When I desperately want you?”

A movement on your side
I hold my breath
Hoping it’s true
The craving that will not sleep
Forces me to speak...

“Touch me!”
My most sultry voice
Breaks the stillness of the night
Your heavy breathing is stilled
I feel an awakening
Emboldened
I guide your hand 
To my waiting breasts
Which I’ve bared for some time
In readiness
In anticipation
Waiting to bring me pleasure...

You pull me to you
And your lips close over them in turn
Making all my dreams come true

The open window carries out the sound
Of our frenzied sleeplessness
My every womanly sense 
Is taut….alive
Wanting
Needing
Demanding
Pleasing
Energy born out of insomnia’s rage
I blaze through these moments...

Satiated…I sigh
The tenseness wanes
My body goes lax
My eyelids heavy
As a plant a kiss on your lips
I slip
I slid
Into that land
Of sleepful bliss.

    sorry. I could not comment the subject of your mom on your poem... :-(..... I could not read pass the first line in your words.. "years before her death, my mama would pray>" that very moment I knew what the poem would be about... .. however, I will read it when I am stronger... love Linda.

    Dreamer Avatar Roya Dreamer Date: 7/7/2013 3:34:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Yes, Linda....I understand, my dear. You read when you are able. May God carry you through this difficult time and comfort your heart as only He can.

    Thanks ever so much, BL. Glad you took the time to stop by! :)
  1. Date: 7/4/2013 9:59:00 AM

    wow, YOU really did this theme creatively!!! and I love how you show the woman's point of view. a man would not care at all about the woman having worked hard and needing her sleep. He would just go for it, wake her up, and not lie there wishing for it. haha. love this.

    Dreamer Avatar Roya Dreamer Date: 7/4/2013 10:07:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Yes...we have needs too, but I must admit...the wait was terrible. Yes...we are more considerate, I guess. Then again that "I have a headache must drive them mad...Guess it goes both ways....Thanks for stopping by...

    Beats the heck out of a sleeping pill*lol* I never mind being aka ken for this purpose.

    Dreamer Avatar Roya Dreamer Date: 7/9/2013 3:44:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Richard......You just are too kind to me, that's all. A sure win...how I wish!
    Dreamer Avatar Roya Dreamer Date: 7/4/2013 9:39:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    At least for this contest I didn't need anything make believe...This truly happened. Yes....married couples do need to fulfill each other's needs...Biblical proof for that. The marriage bed is pure and undefiled......Don't deprive one another unless it is for consecrating time to pray...which this wasn't. Glad you dropped by, Richard. My prediction is that it won't do well...Call it inner intuition....Still...was fun to write. Hugs

    This is a sure winner Eileen.

    Halfway through reading this I knew he'd stop pretending to be asleep lol. Another blazingly sensual write from you my little Desrt Orchid, though this was more Xena like. Take care, Richard

    Seal Avatar Richard D Seal Date: 7/24/2013 5:24:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Yes, I thought I'd make a little time for you tonight lol not like I've got nothing else to do with my life lol
    Dreamer Avatar Roya Dreamer Date: 7/4/2013 9:40:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    BTW....pretending to be asleep is just plain mean....Can't believe people do that....
    Dreamer Avatar Roya Dreamer Date: 7/4/2013 9:34:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    This is pure reality....no fiction in this one. My poor hubby has his hands full in more ways than one...... ;-) Can I help it if I can't sleep? Yes...Xena like I am when the need arises....in me. ;-) Thanks for the visit, Richard...glad you've made time for me...

    So deeply emotional. Sensual yet romantic passion flowing through this each line like a magical song. Love this. Love, Gail

    Dreamer Avatar Roya Dreamer Date: 7/4/2013 9:43:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thanks, Gail....it's fine line between romantic and borderline vulgar. Hope I didn't cross that. :-D
