About the Poem

This poem was inspired by a period in my life that I am both happy to recall, and at the same time, ashamed to admit. It is about having an affair.

Let me be your retreat,
From the stress of life,
From the battling children,
From the bills and fights.

Let me be an oasis,
Your fantasy realized,
Your secret lover,
Your intimate soulmate.

Let me into your heart,
Just into a corner,
I know it's filled,
With the love of another.

Let me be an oasis,
To quench your thirst,
Ease your restlessness,
Soften life's blows.

Be there for me,
As I am for you,
Sharing, loving and nurturing,
Be my oasis.
