Band-Aid

Band-Aid

A Poem by AprilRN1210
"

little fixes are still fixes sometimes

"

“Love is something far more than desire for sexual intercourse; it is the principal means of escape from the loneliness which affects most men and women throughout the greater part of their lives.”

-Bertrand Russell






Let your fingers

slide through my hair

electrifying the spot that erases the day.

 

Let my lips

                 taste escape

as they sample the story of your soul.

 

Let your flames engulf the chill

              from my frigid tendencies

smoldering heat stealing our inhibitions.

 

Tangle my thoughts

    in pleasure

         towards tranquility….

 

 

……even if only temporary

A scribbling daydream of loving escape to come "home" to after rough day. A girl can dream.

Sampling the story of your soul...Now that is a line everyone reading this will wish they wrote.
A beautifully written piece, connecting future connections and longing for thoughts to be tangled, however briefly.
Superb.

Thank you Tim, I appreciate it.
Dreamy, enchanting and mesmerizing to the limitless escapes to love's tranquility. You do open the closets of your heart to share your favorite wardrobe of today's romance. Or your dusting off the library of the souls to find deeper meanings to it all. An excellent one...:).............

Oh Fran, it is such a sweet sexy thought isn't it! Thank you ma'am, so good to see you :)
Are dreams what love is made from
Or is love what dreams are made for?

We all dream of that special feeling.

Really enjoyed this.

Bertrand Russell quote is true. We accept less to know some peace. Your words realistic and true. Thank you April for sharing the amazing poem. You are right. All of us need TLC.

There is a beautiful poignancy to this one, April. Even a one night stand can bring happiness to a lonely soul. Your writing is always worthwhile. Lydi**
