Words from an Insomniac still trying to find her way

Young Lovers, Where are you at 4 in the a.m.?

young lovers,

some are sleeping


of each other’s warmth

each other’s breath 

so close, next to eager lips.

dreamers live passionately


frame by frame

if only seconds at a time

of lovers on a high

with no end in sight

and nothing in their way

lovers sway,

within each strong embrace

engulfed in a beautiful glow

an even more pleasant scent

heaven kissed

and no one

wants to wake up from this…


young lovers,

wanting, needing

what books divulge in

what movies indulge in.

love wearing a little bit

of lust

a dash of sin

a hunger for attention

anything but loneliness.

young lovers seek out others

in dark seductive bars

in far away destinations

of romance and eroticism



for a bit of what they crave,

just a taste 

and a chance to

return the favor,

just the same.


young lovers,

are always in the mood

when the right melody is playing

when the right words are persuading

and fantasies are fulfilled

pleasure meets the thrill.

late night surprise

early morning release 

who needs sleep

when lovers are around?


Feeling sexy

feeling bound and excited

kissed and enlightened

all senses heightened

no more daydreaming needed

this time is the real thing.

young lovers are always satisfied,

you can see it in their eyes

and in their walk.


young lovers

even those

that have been married so long

with no harm done

because each day feels

like the first aching burn

the first moment of a yearn

when hearts were on fire

and firsts were conquests

to be desired.

Even now in their wrinkles

in their aging bones

love still finds its way


in a walk, a conversation,

in silence and in sleep,

loves peeks its foolish grin

and stirs up feelings 

new again.


young lovers,

love is always young

always yearning for a bit

for a grip on all of us.

give in

be uninhibited

for once

learn to live

just learn to let go

learn to never say no

and enjoy the moment

you dream of most.
