AN AWAKENING TOUCH

by thereluctantpoet

AN AWAKENING TOUCH

Our first touch–
with only your fingers
slowly brushing my hand
sent an extraordinary
jolt of electricity,
through my whole body
that I had never felt before.

The twinkle
in your eye
sparked imaginings
that lit up my soul

The smile on your lips
whispered to my heart
making its beating race
as a blush showed
upon my face

An unintended touch
that somehow came to be
as your fingers brushed my hand
and awoke a part of me
I never knew
was waiting there

I shared a touch of the new
and a lingering stare with you
and hoped

I AM BLESSED

by thereluctantpoet


I AM BLESSED - PHOTO 2


By Charles Robert Lindholm  

 Every night I count my blessings

and I‘m thankful for each one

’cause I know I‘ve not been promised

I‘ll see the rising sun

 

 Every moment is so precious

every day is special too

but the memories that I treasure most

have all been made with you

 

You are the love I‘ve longed for

You are my dream come true

and I know each day

that I am Blessed

when I wake up next to you

There is nothing quite so wonderful as waking up with your BELOVED!!!

I DON’T KNOW WHY

by thereluctantpoet

MONARCH COCOON - CHANGING

By Bree Leto – Secretthoughtswithin And
Charles Robert Lindholm – The Reluctant Poet

I’m not sure why
I keep on changing
like I do

I don’t know
if it’s good or bad
I really wish I knew.

I fear with all these changes
taking place inside of me,
others will only notice
the outer side they see.

I wish I understood
what was meant to be,
what’s the point in changing
if you don’t change with me.
growing together

Take my hand, my love,

we can grow together.
I will grow
and you will grow,
by my side

FOREVER.

An Instant

by HemmingPlay

In every life,
there’s a moment, or two.

The curve of your neck
out of that corduroy man’s shirt,

Burnt orange,
of autumn; passing of the old.

How unaware you were
that our child-like lives had just changed.

That’s not quite the right word.
They rearranged themselves

Into a new pattern, the right one.
Like random iron filings on paper

Which, when a magnet comes near,
Spring instantly into order,

Obedient to the
Truth of an invisible force.

Light house…

by Sandeep

Picture Courtesy: Rick Whitacre

I light up
each evening
before sunset as
it’s my duty,
they say, and
because, I am not
allowed to take
it for granted, oh Moon,
‘that you would arrive
tonight’!

Meet Again Where the Boardwalk Begins

by Stephen

This moment twists in on itself
A cruel freak show contortionist
Who stares agape, tear-carved
Deltas from his made up eyes.

If only it would twist into a pretzel
With lots of salt
That we’d eat with mustard.
Two kids on a boardwalk,

WILL YOU LET ME LOVE YOU?

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm 

I don’t know who I am yet
for I have not faced the darkest night
nor heard the howling demons
that hunger for my soul

I have not felt the razors edge
nor heard the wooing whispers
tempting me to use it
to let my blood be
the ink of my final poem

A RUNAWAY LOVER

by thereluctantpoet

A RUNAWAY LOVER
By Charles Robert Lindholm

She was always better at running away
from the intimacies created by connecting
sexually and emotionally than wanting to stay
for a chance to see if love and commitment
would grow into forever
