Free Verse # 139 (bruised

You touch me
and I become a river
roaring in the sea of your heart.

You touch me again
and my center breaks,
dissolved and beating
deep in your soul.

~

Waxing in your eyes
The evening star whispers
As in my veins the longings
Of a thousand solitary nights burn
Melting me whole,
a river in your arms.

~

I thought myself a weed
until I bloomed on my lover’s lips,
a flower sighing her most fragrant breath
into the open mouth of dawn.

~

Through You I am a sun
which exuberance outshines
the universe’s bounds.

~

Your breath,
sun’s burning nectar
melting in my wine.

~

You’re not here,
but I make love to your image
seared into the faces of dawn and dusk.

You’re not here,
but your voice falls through the wind
like autumn leaves rippling
in my soul a thousand longings.

~

The edges of your tongue
upon my skin,
a blade of fire
mercilessly dancing,
searing countless verses
forevermore to glow
as emblems of fate.

~

I was a gray cloud,
but then you touched me.
My flakes, falling on your skin, thawed,
merging back with the sea.

~

Your absence,
an abyss gnawing at my heart,
a black hole expanding,
threatening to sweep me
out of existence
to shelter me inside of you.

~

Like spring over the earth
I envelope your body,
flowers exhaling my essence
into your every pore,
bees stinging into your blood
the venom of my poetry.

~

Your kisses left me bruised,
blue patches under my skin
billowing with ocean water
and expanding, widening,
soon, soon, to engulf me whole.

~

With a whiff of purity
and a trumpet of secluded woods
solitude called out to me once more,
and I rose, and I flew
to bathe in oceans
of pure light.

    1. I would like to get published although I never put enough effort into it. It won’t come to my doorstep. Problem is I’m not really sure how to do it. The people I ask are never really helpful. I’ll see…

      Thank you Noora. You are quite a talent yourself and your words leave me warm and smiling. 🙂
