Poetry Monday

For my Cookie

"Write Good Sex Baby, I Love You"
reads the note stuck to my wall.
"There is coffee in the kitchen.
Drink some water, I will call."

How'd I ever live without him?
I inhale the coffee's steam.
He's my winning lotto ticket,
he's my living, breathing dream.

"How you feeling? How's the writing?
Work is fine the place is packed.
Tell me what you want for dinner,
I will make it when I'm back."

What did I do to deserve him?
I dont cook and I cant sew.
I am scatterbrained and flightly.
Yet he loves me, why? Who knows.

"Did you write good sex today hon?
Man, its good to see your face.
Will I read it? Sure, I'd love to.
Take a bite, how does this taste?"

He defends me from all comers
who would dare to doubt my goals.
He is brave and he is goofy
He's the balance in my soul.

So I hold him in the evening
and I tell him how I feel.
How I thank whoever sent him
How my love is true and real.

And he smiles as if I've given him
the world, the moon, the sky.
And I know that's all he wanted.
All he'll ask for till he dies.

After all the years of lonely isolation
pain and doubt
I hear "Write Good Sex, sweet baby."
And I know what love's about.

I know she loves me. I can feel it in every touch, every look. I can hear how much she loves me when she says "good bye" in the mornings. But she hit home, hit my heart true with this poem. Made me tear up. Made me remember how much she means to me. Sometimes I get wrapped up in my own crap, and forget that she is my universe. Sometimes I forget to tell her why I breath in and out, why I wake up each day. It's for you My Love. Thank you.

Oh, that's awesome. How totally wonderful.
And Cookie's response is just...amazing.
I was blog rolling and thought "RG will have a poem up! Cool".
I'm so glad I remembered.

Well, seems to me that writing good sex means you're writing what you know... I'd keep you happy too! *grin*

Seriously. The Tour Manager does a lot of this. I say all the time that he makes my life possible. I hear ya.

sniff...with the crying people.

I am with you on this poem, SO deeply. I feel the same way about my sweet man, and wish I could write something as moving to let him know how much he is loved.

really great

I'm so glad I stopped by, Dearest Doppleganger, even though I am crying my eyes out.

What a lovely poem and what an amazing response from your Cookie. You are both so fortunate to have found each other.

Well that's it-you made me cry. Just a little welling of the eyes from the poem, then The Cookie had to come on and really start the water works. But unlike Crystal and Rhian, I love a good cry, so thanks.
I love you guys!*sniff*
