Missing

A Poem by J. Elsie

Missing...

just the thought of coming home to love
causes an aching deep within

for goosebumps beneath your fingertips
for bed head and morning breath

for tears and for smiles
for kisses ending in laughter

for games of chase and touch (discovery) tag
for shampooed hair and midnight snores

for passion above the sheets so hot
we ignite fire in the evening sky

where my body lays there should always be two
i can sleep alone
but only dream next to you

Remarkable write! Very vivid and full of life and eloquence. This piece demands respect and wonderment. That last stanza is incredible. It really leaves an impression, an amazing finish, to say the least. "I can sleep alone/but only dream next to you" very powerful! Wow, well done!!!!

Gee
Can relate to this as have been married to a very special lady for 24 years.
You write very well but obviously do not need me to tell you that.

Wow. I love the last lines... breathtaking! It's just like how love should be... not an obsession in which you can't possibly breathe without the other person (though I think that's what most of us think we want...), but a completion of sorts. You portray this love perfectly.

incomplete without the other half of your heart the worst part is when you finally find it and then they are gone and it hurt so much you almost wish you never found them in the first place

Beautiful poem. Your last lines were the ending poets dream of. You have to have a memorable word, sentence..somthing, and you found it. Great. Rain..

Yes ur quite right. I believe natures beauty still surprises us all. And the power of love is harsh at times but if u dont give up u will eventually be with ur life mate.
Good poem and Im glad u gave me a chance to read it.

This is truly a work of art full of vivid images and The playful teasing way Your words brought them to life in the readers mind. Although The last stanza was as powerful and romantic. Absolutely beautiful.

I truly enjoyed this piece I found your projected imagery was very well worded. The flow was nicely wrote out. You did a fine write here.

"There are two things in life that tend to astound me time after time...
Nature's consistent beauty
and the
Power of Love"

and in ways we cannot conceive are these two connected and bring us to where we began and where we surely end, Love again and again ...
