New Poem – Respite

Come into my arms, dear man,
And hide from the bruising intrusions of the worl
No longer alone and vulnerable like a naked bulb
Casting scant light in some dreary hall
Come into my warmth and claim the sanctuary
Of my breasts.

Accept the faith that hides not far behind
My eyes.
Yield to the strength of my slim hands.
Increase my light with yours.
Trace your plans and hopes with gentle hands
Across the whiteness of my belly,
But leave a trail we’ll find again
In the dark nights of our fears.
Give me your tears as easily as your smiles.
Then rest with me matching breath for breath
‘Til the world can no longer hold nor harm us.
Come into my arms, dear man,
And let me love you.
