A Strong Man Like A Baby in Her Arms

He is a strong man: unbendable, unbreakable…steel
He is a brave man
He fights his battles
He claims his victories
Vicious and fierce when the need arises
Protective and overly zealous
A fighter
A gladiator who can wound
To protect what is his
A strong man by day
Everyday

But then at night, oh sweet blessed night
A strong man like a baby in her arms
He is covered in her scented softness
She lets him suckle at her breast
Feeding him her soul
Nourishing him
Whispering in his ear
As she runs her hand through his hair
Gently binding his wounds from battle
Caressing his taught muscles with fragrant oil
Soothing him
Crooning to him
Letting the last sound in his ears
To be her melodious lullaby of love
Her mighty warrior...her baby

He drifts off into sleep
Covered in her blanket of charms
Safe from all harm
A strong man like a baby in her arms

    Yes, we like a lot of that lol, not the fighting part though. Great write you should enter it. Take care, Richard

    I say enter it. You're only giving the sponser what's been asked for. He will, I'm sure, consider your poem on its own merits.

    Yes...there wouldn't be any fighting, Mr Seal, if men got it right the FIRST time round! Hmmmmmm...what is construed as nagging is merely men putting things off till kingdom come, so they need gentle reminders! You've come back with a bite!!!! I WOULD enter it, except I think that perhaps it would be unfair for the sponsor to have to deal with a entry about one of his own poems. What do you think?

    Quite similar to how Yin & Yang get along so well. Balance of strength & heart. Excellent job.

    I cant believe there's no comments on this! Its really good. Made me smile, not like laughing, just genuinely made me smile in a happy way, interesting for me to read this from the perspective of a man but still, I completely understand the meaning here, I think that's when you know you have strong love; when a man, normally unbreakable against the world, could crumble into the most open person in your arms, very nice poem, enjoyed reading it.

    WOW! What a lovely post. Thanks ever so much. Well, you know the Odepus complex and all that. Some men still need to be babied and mothered. Women are caregivers...who better to baby than the one you love! :)
