Poetry Challenge by Tammy L Wilkins


Lover of the Light

The mouth-wateringly rousing words you utter
Oh how they make my heart shamelessly flutter

Soft caress of your fingertips upon my skin
Secure in your tender hold, love and lust akin

Just for this fleeting moment, you are only mine
Want, need and longing combined, our bodies gently entwine
I come undone by the three words you whisper once more
Eliciting such an intense emotion I’ve never experienced before

You’re my fiery, passionate ball of light
Whether in the distance or right before my doe-eyed sight
Your glistening flame continues to melt my carefully carved walls
Crafted to protect myself yet you insist on making me fall

You kiss with deep meaning and sensual delight
Steal shy glances my way each and every night
Touch with warmth and adoration created to rock my core
Slowly but surely, this is how you’ve made me yours

And yet, after all this time, my heart still flutters
By the same three words you so gloriously utter

Though now so far away, you express such strong devotion
For your love is still present through words across the oceans
