In The Midst Of Building A Tomorrow

Both he and she
Had intentionally
Taken it slow…

There was no rush,
Both their hearts
Still healing
From past hurt
By others,

Too much tearing
And tangled emotional wont…

Their scars
Still tender.

So at the end of
Tonight’s date
Neither was looking
To force the issue,

Just to let things flow,

As they walked
To her door,

Hand in hand,
Hearts coupled
By unspoken need
And longing,

Purposefully pausing
On her front step.

Maybe it was
The wash of moonlight
Over their summer skins…

Maybe it was
The flow
Of her sundress
With the warm breeze…

Maybe it
Was his heat
Enrobing her
As his hands
Cupped the
Small of her back…

Drawing her
Into his world.

It was all
Of that…

When their
Lips first touched…

Firing a

Fueling the burn
Buried so deeply
For so long
In their core.

Tonight will be
So different.

In the building passion,

This man
And this woman,

Are in the midst
Of something brazen,
And deep,
And intimate,

And personal.


He and
She are
In the midst
Of starting a fire,
Forging their love
Into something strong,
And lasting…

All their worries
And regrets,
And concern
For their future,
Now gone.

Tonight they are
In the midst

Of building

A tomorrow.

  1. Beautifully written as always, Bill. I like the out-of-body writing technique you have used this time, instead of the I-person a she and a he. Deeply romantic, intense, tender and sensual. That is how real love must always be.

    1. Thanks so much Marta!! It’s strange…I shift from this “me and you” to “he and she” structure. I find that the theme of the verse pushes me one way or the other. Oh well…just another example of the untrained, unpolished structure of my words. πŸ™‚

      Guess it’s just whatever comes to my mind and pen.

      All the more reason to thank you for your forbearance, interest and willingness to read! πŸ™‚

      2. It’s strange, isn’t it? Don’t know why I feel the need to do so… but I do! 😊

      3. Always my pleasure. BTW, I have posted a review of a book written by a friend of mine, Mario Savioni. He is a poet who also talks about love relationships, especially about infatuation and unrequited love. I see a few similarities with your work. Perhaps you may want to have a look? Mario is a very important person in my life. If I had not met him I would not be writing poetry, have my blog and come across your beautiful work that always speaks to me. 😊

  2. Things happening naturally are the best moments in life. Never forced. Never expected. Just riding the waves and seeing where you’re taken. This was so profound and beautifully written!

    1. Thanks so much!! And I totally agree…which really influenced my nuance of “letting things flow.” I just loved the picture of a man and woman embracing on her front porch…constructing their future in the moment. Makes me smile.

      So much appreciate your continued interest and willingness to read my verse!!

      PS. So is it Brandi…or Brandy? Or perhaps I’m totally off the mark. πŸ™‚

        As for my name… It is Brandi! I guess I owe you a shiny, gold star! ⭐️
        Great researcher you are! πŸ˜„πŸ‘
