Sundays

Sundays

A Poem by DrD

It is Sunday, no reason to leave the bed

I pull the blanket about my shoulders

And stare at the ceiling

You loved Sundays and came to me

With toothpaste kisses and

Warmed your feet against mine

You loved putting your head on my shoulder

And suggesting things we could do

Museums and shows, exhibits and parks

There was no limit because it was Sunday

And you loved Sundays

 

There were days when your eyes were soft

Saying “Love me or I’ll die”

And days when passion clawed with your eyes

Saying “Love me or I’ll kill you”

And from the bed I can see the flowers

You planted on the balcony and almost feel

Your fingertips coursing my cheek

In seductions so subtle my mind could not

Understand the message of my body

And you would finish with trembling breath

Before surrendering to soft, embarrassed giggles

 

Hands fitted into each others, we would walk

Pausing only for an expresso at Dario’s

And a while to lean on the railing of the bridge

To watch the dark mystery of the canal moving upon itself

We would lie in the tall grass and watch fireflies

Dance against the tent of night

Then race madly to catch the last train home

Where we would eat bread and cheese

And drink cheap wine on the table we made from boxes

And life was young, alive and beautiful

Because it was Sunday, and you loved Sundays.

Oh how beautiful. You lucky man to have experienced this - it escapes so many and often times we don't appreciate it until too late.... It speaks of a man who loves his woman the way she is - complex and contradictory, rather than trying to mould her into an image that makes love "safe".

You are more than welcome. Anytime.
Oh geez...this is amazing, lovely! You have made this story come alive and I adore the ending. "Because it was Sunday, and you loved Sundays." It is one that will stay with me. I am horrible so far at this kind of writing, so romantic and present, incredibly charming. I don't usually like poetry about love but you are very good at it.

Thank you, Beccy. Not a dream, true story.
Wow, such a great write, portraying a love filled relationships, but it almost gave me a feeling this this girl was no longer part of this relationship, gave a sad image to go along with the love... great job :)

your totally welcome! :D
You are graceful in word and obviously in tune with your soul. You have the intuitive eye of a lover that really pays attention to the big things, the little things, and all the nuances in between. This display of remembrance is palpable in its bittersweetness.

Thank you, David. I always appreciate your visits.
Your poetry finds its way into my soul every time. The melancholy bittersweetness is overwhelming. To have had a love like this is to have lived life to the fullest....to have shared all the simple pleasures of life and to know your partner wanted to be with only you. May memories help you get through the days.....your words are stunningly poignnat. Lydi**
