A Poem by JayG

Because a very special lady isn't with me...but should be.



I woke, enveloped within the comfort only your warmth can bring
My head was nestled into the curve of your shoulder, my hand on velvet skin, stroking.

But you weren’t there.

Memory brought the scent of woman: gentle, and softly sated with pleasure
So warm with sleep, so twined with hints of passions past:
An ambiance of morning…a residue of night…a reason for joy and tears

But you weren’t there.

I woke with you gathered tightly around my being, comforting and exciting, both at once.
I woke to memories and to desire, and to comfort, as my lips�"of themselves�"sought yours.

And then, you were there. But only for a moment:
In warmth
In passion
In comfort
In life
In all that matters.

But then, sadly, reality brought a sigh, and a turning inward
Because you weren’t there.

And on waking, I wept.

This expresses such a frustrating feeling. Dreams feel so real until they aren't. I like the phrase "warm with sleep."

It hurts when someone you love passes away, or just moved on. But the memories of the past keeps making it's way back. I to can understand your poem. You have a passion with so much emotions in your writing. Thank you so much for sharing.

Leaves you wanting to believe she is actually there as much as the main character.

I loved it , i loved the settings , and how much passion you gave those words , it was smooth

concise and moving write with a deep sense of love lost. I like the juxtaposition between memory/desire and reality sprinkled throughout to keep interest.

Too deep. Yet the meaning is one which every single person from around the world can relate to. This longing and the melancholy that accompanies it is one a lot of people who had true love would have gone through

Not too terribly shabby, I suppose.

nicely expressed emotions.

Hits home, but 'should' is a strong word there. I think this poem greatly captures why a lot of us write, and the phrases that explain our feelings, but not the truth.
