Beautiful Distraction

Beautiful Distraction

A Poem by Kiera Scanlon

You caught me off guard,
You took me by surprise,
The touch of your hand, 
That sparkle in your eye.

Lying in your arms,
We are the perfect match,
The distance is discouraging,
Yet I am still so attached.

Your breath on my neck,
The smell of your hair,
The naughtiness in your smile,
That strength in your stare.
Your warmth, your touch,
All worries subside,
As your sweet lips kiss mine,
Oh, that feeling inside.


And when I look into your eyes,
I see pure beauty with no disguise.

I liked the title and yet the reflective voice is apparent in the lines...as if you're saying these words in full array...I would edit down certain areas:


You caught me off guard,
You took me by surprise,
The touch of your hand,
That sparkle in your eye.

Lying in your arms,
We are the perfect match,
The distance is discouraging,
Yet still I am still so attached.

Your breath on my neck,
The smell of your hair,
The naughtiness in your smile,
That strength in your stare.

Your warmth, your touch,
All worries subside,
As your sweet lips kiss mine,
Oh, that feeling inside.


And when I look into your eyes,
I see pure beauty with no disguise.

You caught me off guard,
Took me by surprise,
Touch of your hand,
Sparkle in your eye.

Lying in your arms,
We are a perfect match,
Distance is discouraging,
I am still so attached.

Your breath on my neck,
Smell of your hair,
Naughtiness in your smile,
Strength in your stare.

Your warmth and touch,
All worries subside,
As your sweet lips kiss mine,
Oh, that feeling inside.

And when I look into your eyes,
I see pure beauty with no disguise.


Of course --- this is just impo...do what makes you feel --- you...

"Oh, that feeling inside." is so much my favorite line (of so many excellent) that it deserves its own stanza! You captured the strength of love. Thank you for sharing.
