Music Prompt #43: “Someday We’ll Linger” by Gaelynn Lea – Love Screeches!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jb1oCjiIu9M

 

Love screeches! Did you know that?

It reaches into your very soul

It twists and turns inside

Making you its plaything.

But you play,

I know I’ve seen you

Watched it tickle your fancy

Felt you gasping, craving

As you squeal for more.

 

Love screeches! Did you know?

It demands and its cajoles

It kids you, wakes you

When you think your senses are dead.

It rises, drags you at first

Kicking and screaming

But you feel its caress

Soothing those fears

Relaxing you inside its grip.

 

Love screeches! Did you know?

It’s a complex multi layered

State of mind, where you doubt

Rejoice, celebrate,

All within the space of minutes.

You wrap yourself within it

Your tingling bits

Echo inside your head

Your need, your yearning.

 

Love screeches!

You do know that…don’t you?

  1. I know that, Michael 🙂 lovely poem!

  2. It does, it does. Love this.

  3. I love how you describe love. I agree, love doesn’t whisper or caress. It screeches 🙂 Thank you, Michael
