tagNon-Erotic PoetryThe Calm After my Storm

The Calm After my Storm


If I know what love is
It is because of you
Basking in the warmth of your arms
As the world around us fades away
The silence of your breathing
The beating of my heart …
These things speak volumes to me
In shadow beneath the night stars

A simple touch upon my flesh
The claim of your lips upon mine
The place that whispers for your breath upon my soul
Implementing the promise of your caress
Retracting the memories that hurt up until now
These things soothe the storm that was mine

My existence has a clear purpose
You have confirmed this with a simple smile
Broken promises but a fading memory in my mind
The rumble of the storm has passed away
And I can see the hint of the rainbow peeking through my clouds

Comfort lies in my expelled breath
The one I have been holding for ages
And it is soothing like the tidal waves roll
Washing away the broken castles in the sand
My slate ready to be rewritten upon once more
