Poem for Sunday

summer Villanelle

You know exactly what to do -

Your kiss, your fingers on my thigh -

I think of little else but you.

It's bliss to have a lover who,

Touching one shoulder, makes me sigh -

You know exactly what to do.

You make me happy through and through,

The way the sun lights up the sky -

I think of little else but you.

I hardly sleep, an hour or two,

I can't eat much and this is why -

You know exactly what to do.

The movie in my mind is blue -

As June runs into warm July

I think of little else but you.

But is it love ? And is it true?

Who cares? This much I can't deny:

You know exactly what to do;

I think of little else but you.

  • my wife could have written that for me

  • Is her name Wendy? It's so nice that you think of yourself as romantic. It always helps when choosing Christmas gifts for loved ones!! 😉😉😉

  • no her names dawn but she could off, how more romantic could I get than that delux chicken coop

  • What a lovely name! I thought maybe her name was Angel to be able to put up with you! ..... Oh I'm only joking! I know you're a lovely man really! 😜😂😂😂

  • she is , she is 1000% better than my first wife

  • I hope that's true - can't be said of a lot of men!

  • Aaaah! This is so good. Like her , I'll say how is it that the sun shines as you touch my shoulder. But who care? I just like it, love it and am bowled over with it! Carry on, I am an easy target!!! Mic

  • so glad you liked it Mic, so simple, so touching, so sad if you have never had this feeling! Iris x
