Nectar and Dew

 

I do not recall

Which is really better;

The sunrise sparkling

In your morning eyes

Or desire’s dew drops set

Upon your midnight lips.

But I do remember

Your love and its size

And the nectar

Of my soul it sips.

But then again, I have to wonder,

Between the nectar and dew,

Which is really most unfettered

And which is,

Really,

I or you.

Michael, what a nice poem. Full with expressions what I like:

 

The sunrise sparkling

In your morning eyes

Or desire’s dew drops set

Upon your midnight lips.

 

Sounds wonderful and so lovely, emotional.

The end is very deep and confusing and I love that part too.

 

Thank you for sharing and so nice to see you around

Hello Mr. M,

 

Your use of some unusual and striking images make this poem of longing an unforgettable read:

 

"midnight lips, Your love and its size" - particularly love the idea of the "size of love" - something immeasurable made measurable. Ah! the way poetry can extend boundaries! Excellent!

One of the arguments I always have with a woman is the age old "I love you more" thing. A playful sort of dissagreement as WHO REALLY CARES? But it is so much fun none the less...hehe
