Every Inch

Photo by Graham A Stephen (http://geotopoi.wordpress.com)


You grow like ivy around my heart.

Clinging vine overwhelms my soul.

Every inch of me you cover.

Sweet darkness in your embrace.

Enwrap me.

Don’t let go.

  1. I love this. Having ‘dealt’ with ivy (literally or metaphorically BRH? I’ll take the fifth on that one please Rose!) I’m fascinated by the way that removing it can also damage the thing it clings to too. Oddly, I read this more as being about addiction more than romance.

    • Oh, really? I’d love to have tea with you and hear all about it. Do sit down! 😀 Yes, there definitely is addiction running through the vine. Isn’t love an addiction? — that need to connect with that person body and soul?

      Such an astute comment, B! I love your words. Now, let’s have tea. ☕️🍰☕️

  2. Rose exposes the fragile yet warm and loving side of a relationship. This is the side that holds a real relationship together for it provides a strong foundation and becomes impenetrable in times of challenges. This is a beautiful poem that will rekindle the romance in many relationships.
