Halloween Poems Speak Softly Lie Still

Speak softly
lie still.
James WF Roberts

Speak softly
lie still.
feel no harm
float over you
softly as the palms of night
hold you gentler than candlelight

close your eyes
rest the weary mind
and fall
fall
fall away from conscious plight


Last night
as we lay silent
I felt that burning from your eyes
that question
that forever
forever
keeps away the nectar of moon tide

Lost in the river of indecision
trapped in the consequences
of life
Do you now wonder?
do you now shiver?

At the very thought of us
lying here. Silent
forever. Forever

Speak softly
lie still.
feel no harm
float over you
softly as the palms of night
hold you gentler than candlelight

feel that touch of my kiss
desperately trying to re-ignite
our previous—wondrous
feeling of bliss.
