Day 18 A-Z Challenge, R = Romance (free verse)

~::~ Amorous Dreams ~::~


Thoughts of you send me tingling
With shivers down my spine
Every inch of your face, in my eyes twinkling
While I yearn to make you mine
Your mellow voice, fresh in my memory
That made me lush beetroot red
Your dimpled smile, alive in my reverie
Twists my heart in a knotted thread
Your delicate fingers with butterfly touches
That inflame every inch of me
An intoxicating furor, potent rushes
Oh baby! You set my heartbeat a’glee

Day 13 A-Z Challenge, M = Magnolia (Quatern)

~::~ Magnolia Dream ~::~


Magnolia! You make me yearn

You blossom wild, in grief I burn

Set ablaze for eternity

My immortal love, come to me


In every life, affection spurned

Magnolia! You make me yearn

He came, he left without a trace

Oh, how I crave to see his face!


Scorned love, in every existence

Passion decried of its essence

Magnolia! You make me yearn

Time after time in every turn


Waiting ‘neath the magnolia tree

For love to set my soul a’free 

I burn with the orange Saturn

Magnolia! You make me yearn!
