Poem a day challenge...

Day 17 Prompt: "All I want is ..."

All I want is to close my eyes
and reach for you
then I wouldn't need to search
my dreams for your face

If I could feel your arms around
me and know you're there
sleep would cocoon me contentedly
in the dark

Let me snuggle into the contours
of your body and hear the soft
sigh of your breath on my skin
then I would know I am safe

I want reassurance
from your touch 
to chase away my ghosts



  1. Beautiful! You can feel the longing.

  2. A beautiful very well written poem.

  3. There is a wonderful progression building here...I am happy that you are rising to the challenge Eaton.
