#37. Love’s Call

Day 21. NaPoWriMo- Celebrate Poetry, All Month Long!

lovePoem: Love’s Call

(Inspired by the movie ‘The other end of the line’).

A phone call across oceans and continents

I am flushed in strange feelings and sentiments

Lost in the hypnotic patterns and inflections of your voice

The rich timbre, the cadence, the tone, it drowns the outside noise

And I knew this was true love’s call, though unexpected

It came gently and yet suddenly, my life’s peace interrupted

This is not merely rapport, I am totally smitten, enraptured

I am caught up in your trance, life’s given me another chance

Hot liquid pools between my thighs, I am all aflutter in sighs

As you speak to me and paint pictures I only ever dreamed about

Your words open my world with such clarity, no room for ambiguity

I listen with curiosity, with the wonder of one re-awakened

Love came once before and it was cut short in death

And alone and cold, I have ever since mourned

For decades on end, I sat alone, here by my heath

By life and love, so heartlessly and wickedly scorned

Until I heard your soothing voice at the other end of the line

Before your call, I’d given up, content to never bloom or shine

And then you said ‘hello’ and my heart knew to follow

And I answered with all of me, to love’s beautiful call

Uprooted, floating, into your arms, I dare to leap and fall.
