Speak To Me

The sound of my name upon your lips
is a beguiling caress
there is a warm invitation
in the way you speak to me.

I feel an intimate familiarity
that spans the physical distance
to but an arms reach

When you speak to me
I am enveloped in an embrace
that steals my resolve

Through the darkness of a late night
you speak to me and send my heart
racing with excited stirrings

I hold my breath in anticipation
of the magic your words weave
You have but to speak to me

I recall the first time
you spoke to me
time ceased to move

With your “hello”
a common word transformed
becoming a physical touch

That left me longing for more

beautiful poetic write, well done.

This one came out pretty much the way it is now. I wrote it and waited a day before posting to see if I saw something to rework. When I couldn't see anything I put it here for second looks. Thank you for your time in reading and commenting on this piece.
