Penny Kisses

there is a sonnet
of torture
in the hours
spent away
from the ferrel
heat
of your gaze
the thrumming trill
in my skin
when the absence
breaks
and your fingers
fit like lock
and key
between mine
my nerves grow
electric
as your pale eyes
drink me in
and that one
cocky brow
does it’s comical dance
for my
amusement
but nothing consumes me
like your skin
in the dark
your body pressed
against me
your hands playing
new chords
along my greedy
flesh
stealing my wit
breath
and pleasure
until I’m left
with
nothing to
give
but penny kisses
and the cheap
promise
of a new song
tomorrow
and
always

Morning

Morgennebel by rattus_bavariae via DeviantArt.com

When the sky falls
You pull me near
My umbrella
My savior
My hope
Holding onto me
So tight
Holding me up
When I feel like
I am the sky
Burdened by the
Weight of the sun
And responsible
For feeding
The world
You remind me
I’m only a girl
Your girl
And my obligation
Is simply to rest
In your arms
Until the storm
Passes
And a new day
Kisses my lips
Infusing me
With strength
To try
Again
Push through
Another day
So that i can be
Held again
Saved again
Each night
And every morning
Through
Our
Forever

Alight

An idea sparking on
Through the hazy
Wavering fog of
Doubt, guilt, darkness
The light, so warm
It consumes me
I am fuel for something
Greater, better
A chemical burning
Phosphorescent
Within the safety
Of his grip
My wicked lust
Fanned by his breath
As he protects the
Flame
With both hands
It is irony
The most simple form
Of God’s humor
That I should be
Held delicately within
His security
Feeling a pleasure
Incomparable
To the dark
Wilderness
I’d stolen away to
Before
He rescued me
But now, watched
Carefully
And protected by
Our bubble
I am free to burn
As his will closes
Around me
Tightly
Healing me
Right down
To my
Scars

Sidewalk Chalk

 

162: Sidewalk Chalk by Lilliva-Dast

 

I poured this concrete
Mixed together
The burden of love
With the sandy
Salt of reason
And the
Soft sweet liquid
Smiles
Of babes who would
Never understand
Otherwise
It churned
Inside me
Until it grew too toxic
To hold in
So
I poured this concrete
Stepped in
Waded out
Until it hardened
All around me
Now
I’ll spend my nights
Coloring pictures
Of what true love is
And lying
About the color
Of the chalk

Garden beyond the woods

You

Find a seed, a pretty, sweet and simple seed

Plant it in your garden beyond the woods

Water it with your boundless words

Feed it with the warm glow of your attention

Watch it grow and blossom into something greater than you imagined

It’s roots twisting deep to reach what they need

It’s leaves uncurling in a magical dance of exploration

It’s flowers peppering the air with sweet, fragrant kisses of wonder

You

Find another seed, a different seed, a gorgeous seed

And plant it, also, in your garden beyond the woods

A true beauty, redesigning the plot with its exotic grace

It’s roots delve to new depths, avoiding the other, under your skillful training

It’s leaves, so glossy and bright, an amazing compliment to the delicate softness of the other

It’s gorgeous, young flower, luscious and vibrant, with perfume that intoxicates in its superior seduction

You

Watch your creations, excited and delighted, master of this space that is solely yours

You

Admire and adore your craft, reveling in your ability to control these natural wonders

You

Lovingly create these things for more than this… For more than you…

Your garden, beyond the woods cannot keep you

It overwhelms you

It overcomes you

It destroys you

So, You

Abandon the incredible gifts you created

Run to the woods

Dissolve into distance

Return to your heart

Your garden beyond the woods, so perfect in design

Made to keep each plant in isolation…

But, in your absence, the leaves, stems and vines branch out, searching for you

Instead, they find each other

They find another

They find your truth

They find closure

You

Might wither without the gifts of your passion

But they

Will thrive, free and wild, without your mediation

Yes. They

Will live on, in your garden, beyond the woods, and grow stronger and more incredible than you will ever be.

Take me

Forever by KrisVlad via DeviantArt.com

Take me to the beach, Sir.
Walk with me, in the sand.
You could hold me close,
Or simply take my hand.

Tiptoeing through the surf, Sir,
My heart would beat with yours.
We could lose ourselves in the rhythm,
Of the ocean of emotion that roars.

Stop and watch the sunset, Sir.
Our eyes could see as one.
The world between us would shrink,
Until the dream we share is done.

Meet me in the waves, my Sir,
Breath the warm, ocean air.
Feel my love surrounding you,
Lifting you as high as I dare.

When the moon speaks to us, Sir,
It’s certain to offer the light,
To blend our hearts and souls,
With the magic of that one night.

Take me, at the beach, Sir.
Own me, fill me with you.
As it should be, forever.
Because I am taken with you.
