Some of life’s greatest treasures can be found in the most simple things. Revealing some of my secret obsessions, I found that some of them are simple pleasures that I just can’t get enough of.
Softly on skin, a gentle stroke
a teasing touch, just as I like.
Longing, aching, wanting it much:
Feel the breeze on a lovely hike.
Caressing lips as feet move on;
they need that kiss, a sweet surprise.
And for that taste, I’ll hike till dawn,
oh chocolate, you are my demise!
I’ll stop to rest so eyes partake
of lovely lines – enticing stares;
Inspiring dreams while wide awake –
in books I love to cast my cares.
This was written as a response to the Verse First prompt. Writing about three obsessions in three stanzas took a little work to wrap things up into a short, sweet, concise poem. It was even more fun, writing about those obsessions as if they were intimate lovers. Drop me a comment and let me know which was your favorite.
