A Night with The Sun

A Night with The Sun

A Poem by Sherline Heriveaux Poetry



His strapping hands cradle my buxom figure.

Just like an antique, I become important and fragile.

Those extended fingers search for a place to call home,

I become their map and suddenly, he is attentive and docile.


When his lips touch mine, doses of dopamine explode.

Dreams of reaching the finish line are painted and we burn our clothes,

He and I, rowing away fears in our own love boat.


I don’t imagine a white dress or red bouquets awaiting their fate,

He just holds me for now and in his devotion I bathe.

He’ll always have room for me when the world doesn’t.

He’ll choose me, over and over, with no resentment.


His innocent patience is the star around which my heart strings orbit.

On vulnerable nights where silence is the backdrop,

His light is the reason my warmth exists.


My beauty blends well with his beast and our hearts often glisten.

We quarrel, we quit, and then we explore affection.

His need to be loved is at the center of my giving system,

That is by far the most important source of our connection.

A poem about love, lust and vulnerability (at least that's my interpretation). This is what being human is all about, the frailties and desires that drive us as beings. I thought it was a touching read. Thank You.
