I Never

Poem By Jo Lynn EhnesAllen

I never dreamed Seduction's voice
would vanish with the rise of day.
Abandonment, a hurting choice,
has caused my jaded soul to fray.

I never felt that Passion's touch
would softly stroke another's skin.
Confusion clouds the dream I clutch,
which leaves me cold and void within.

I never thought that Sin's embrace
would wrap itself around my waist.
Temptation dwelled in beauty's face
which caused my love to be erased.

I never knew that Rapture's flight
would come so close, then slip away.
Betrayal surfaced in the night
and forced my broken heart to stray.

I never guessed that Pleasure's dance
would light the flame of love anew.
Entrancement brings a fresh romance
that tills the soil where sadness grew.

I never dreamed Devotion's gate
would open for one fleeting chance.
Affection sent to captivate,
now blossoms with a second glance.

Love Is (Found) Is Love

Love
is found;
enraptured
are two, then shared

In Solitude

Alone, awaiting warmth to show,
I'm stroked by autumn's final breeze.
These vibrant branches once aglow
are now suppressed by time's disease.

Keeper Of The Key

Revealed unto my waiting soul;
the secret keeper of the key.
A tender touch unveils his role
as rings of love encompass me.

A Seasonal Affair

A frigid spell of arctic air
adorns this tranquil western scene;
a stunning glimpse of Fall's affair
with Spring's vivacious flower queen.

A Change Of Seasons

Autumnal winds caress my face
as summer's heated breeze expires.
The years have quickened in their pace,
foregoing my misplaced desires.

Don't Rewind

back in the deepest
recesses
(where no one wants to go)
inside a mind
