Beauty in Their Bareness, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Beauty in Their BarenessLa scapigliata, Leonardo Da Vinci (1509)

Beauty in Their Bareness

He stared at the sharp tan line on her breast
Without any effort his mind regressed
Thinking of a time not too long ago
When each other they truly got to know

His anxious breath labored he did confess
The first time he saw her slowly undress
Her breasts were tanned but most was milky white
He said that such a contrast did excite

Eagerly her body he soon caressed
With desire pressed her breasts against his chest
Overwhelmed was he by warmth and softness
And the two did revel in their bareness

On her flesh of milky white were his lips
While his quivering heart made countless flips
Resulting from his expanding desire
A feeling he hoped would never expire

Need You Near, a poem by Robert A. Sieczkiewicz

Need You NearMorning Sun, Harold Knight (1913)

Need You Near

Be it a day or a week we’re apart
There is such loneliness crushing my heart
Closing my eyes can see you standing there
But reaching out there is but only air

I need the tenderness of your soft touch
Your hand in mine in an eternal clutch
Walking together not knowing the end
Not faltering our pace when at a bend

Need the promise you to leave me never
Be it sunny days or dreary weather
For without your help I am not complete
And love for you I can never deplete

May be selfish to want you ever near
But the loss of you is my greater fear
