Conservatism is Stagnation and Regression

I am a wife, mother of 3, RN, and all for truth, not sound bites. I have Lupus, and several other autoimmune diseases and a stroke survivor. I am a very cheerful, optimistic and happy person, and always try to look for the best in the world! Also, I am an unapologetic liberal. Progressive ideas are what made this country and what continue to move it forward, without progress, we wither on the vine!

The Fickle Lover

Rate: 5 Flag



I await your return with fervent breath,

My breasts fill to overflowing in hope

Of your impending appearance

Softly creeping upon my willing body

Prepared to overtake an agreeable partner

But you are an erratic seducer

Fickle, cruel, sadistic many times

Yet I have no choice but to accept

All that you have to offer or not

For I await your sweet respite

The release and liberation of sensation

The paradise you offer me

Always on your requisites

For you are a full night’s slumber

"To sleep, perchance to dream. Aye! There's the rub."
Oh, I must be in a great relationship, I sleep very well almost every single night.
No choice but to accept. We are bound. But it bodes ill.
I have a bad cold and had to take cough syrup-which happens to keep me awake-go figure! I wrote this out of my frustration of fitful sleep for the last 3 nights!

Dicky, Thanks for your comments! I do miss having the dreams!

Oryoki Bowl, I usually can sleep a good 5-6 hrs, but not when I have a cold-which seems like every 3 weeks!!! Thanks for your comments!
Zanelle, That is so true! Thanks for your comments-and it only happens when I am not feeling well!
You and your man must be very much in love, or was he an allegory for that "full night's slumber?"
Lovely words about the horror we share: insomnia. You might enjoy this cautionary tale about a "remedy." http://open.salon.com/blog/luminousmuse/2010/09/01/my_affair_with_ms_ambien
