Secret Romance

When I’m all dressy, you adore my charms -
I’m reaction-affected straight into your arms.

When morning touches our bed, our snuggle wiggles closer -
Light touches us as one and soft kisses are freshly begun.

In lighthearted moods, we laugh and play in rain -
Building ample joy to sail through any life strain.

We share secrets, dreams and life stories -
We grow by delving into all life categories.

Before night embraces our star bound wishes -
You seal them ambitious in love sewn stitches.

What I watch, you see, too;
When you need a fan, that is who I am;
When I laugh, it is echoed by you;
When you need a listener, my ears are healer;
What I feel, you seek to reveal; and
When you find joy in any minute, I am in it.

Content, you read your book while these words I write,
yet you have no knowledge of even being here tonight.
You have never gazed at me with love in your eyes
or offered me a smile that made your face light.
Only love's pretense stifles my heartbroken cries
and keeps my desire safely wrapped in disguise.

    I think we all need a seccret love when we need to feel special and no-one is around at the time to make it so, to get us though a tough time or for reasons known only unto ourselves. Life without a little romance must be hard indeed and for some no doubt unbearable. I can relate to this poem on a number of levels. A 7. Glad the soup is still holding your interest.

    Such a true to life poem, CayCay. I think, as poets, many of us live in a dream world.

    For me its so itimate and moving its like knocking the glass over when you reach to switch off the light. And say how I needed you

    Love the poem and the thoughts put into it. To love someone and not have it returned is sad but not all people show love by emotion some show it by doing or simply by being there. love phyl

    Well done, CayCay. : ) What mansions of thought we may create...

    I really enjoyed the format of this poem, the changing stanza style really made an impact. The message/theme was fantastic and I loved the line "yet you have no knowledge of even being here tonight." It really touched me as I know this feeling. Nicely crafted CayCay

    Does he care for you. A person loves if he takes care of you. Not everyone can show emotion. A lovely poem my friend.

    Love if not returned is no love! A sad beautiful poem that fits the contest demands dear, CayCay. Good luck my friend and a 7 to go along!
