Free Verse # 146 (fire for poetry)

Over your body
I break my heart
and scatter its wine
over the sanctity of your hills,
poems unfurling like dark petals,
soaking through your blood.

~

Flicking my tongue along the curves
of your honey-dipped words
a flame in my throat burns
and I become a dragon
breathing fire for poetry

~

Slowly
let me sip from your lips
the poetry of love

~

Like the wind caressing the fields of spring
your breath breezes through my ribs,
stroking to a tender ecstasy
the sea of my flowers.

~

Drunk on your caresses
you gently tilt my head
and I sigh all my essence
into your luminous heart

~

In the silence of the heart
a dawn is constantly breaking,
flowers suckling at the luminous sky,
and lovers, entangled, spreading ecstasy.
