 She was late again as usual,
it was her little game
making him wait.

 He knew she would come
in her own good time,
no need to worry
about her.

 He re-arranged the bed
with soft silken sheets,
sprinkled rose petals
on the pillows;

 she always liked that,
it made her very responsive
when the bed was fragrant
and inviting.

 He turned down the lights,
played some soft music
and then she came
to him quietly,

 he knew she would,
after all  Sleep often
kept him waiting until
she was ready.

I liked the way this one builds up the romantic tension as it approaches the last verse, but I must admit I am drawing a blank on that verse. Perhaps it is my own denseness, but I can't relate it to the rest of the poem.

I am sorry you couldn't understand my poem John. I often personalize things ie: the seasons, trees, moods. In this instance i have personalized sleep, i hope this helps

So sweetly playful Stella, teasing in a very womanly way, since I like sleeping, I would also sleep peacefully at that inviting bed lol Thank You so much for sharing this romantic piece.

Thank you so much, i keep saying that i am not writing poetry anymore but when this little piece came into my head i just couldn't resist lol.
