Awaken





The hunger weeps in the night
what will you do to wake up your soul
what you will do to awaken mine.
Desire filled nights
our hearts racing
as we wait for dawn's light.
I washed my soul in the ocean
while tears fell tenderly.
Your fingers ran down my spine
and left a print on my skin .
Your arms a homecoming
sun kissed days
that ached in sweet surrender.
You are the dew on the morning grass
You are the sound of the rustling leaves
You are the wine in my empty glass
What will you do to wake up your soul
What will you do to awaken mine

  3. I love the title and specially these lines:

    You are the dew on the morning grass
    You are the sound of the rustling leaves
    You are the wine in my empty glass

  17. Those three opening lines are riveting and could stand alone. They say Everything! Beautiful! I love "I washed my soul in the ocean" and the beauty in the "you are..." closing lines. Loved this poem!

  25. Ayala - at the end of every line, I thought "oh, yes - beautiful". That just about sums up how your writing here affected me. So many lines really hit home for me - washing your soul in the ocean, fingers leaving prints on skin, and those last 3 - you are the wine in my empty glass.. Stunning. Thank you. - Vivienne, of OneVoicePoetry.
