Free Verse # 207 (drunk on love’s potion)

In the auburn glow
Of her blood stained kiss
All his poems melted
Into vaporous rivers
And coursed, sighing,
To her infinite womb.

~

Sweetest lethargy!
Drunk on love’s potion, they sank,
Blissful, ecstatic,
Aware of nothing except
How their bodies merged and wept.

~

He laid anchor in her heart
Thinking it was an eternal port,
But lo! it was an ocean
Wider than the sky.

~

Etched with his tongue
His words were sown in her like seeds.
After the long winter,
In the arms of spring,
The seeds awakened
And she became his song.

~

From her wild breasts
He drew sustenance,
Sun, air, water, earth,
As over her he grew like a tree
That now reached for eternal skies.

~

The world a ripe star
crushed between their bodies,
its white, burning wine
covering the great sky.

~

I am made of longing, and every whisper my soul heaves cuts a little deeper into the fire that I am.

  1. enjoyed all of them, Pierre

    but..

    Sweetest lethargy!
    Drunk on love’s potion, they sank,
    Blissful, ecstatic,
    Aware of nothing except
    How their bodies merged and wept.

    LOVED this one 🙂

    1. No warmth equals that of this womb. We have a word for it in Arabic, عشق, which translates poorly into English as passion. عشق is where two elements or substances merge in one another as one cannot tell them apart anymore nor separate them once again without destroying them both. Annihilation is the core of love. Be it between two lovers, or between the lover and His Beloved. (And I do believe that the Beloved can come dancing, embodied as a lover. Nothing is more beautiful.)

      1. Oh my Lebanese friend ❤ You touch my soul. Sit with me and share what you've learnt, guide me through the journey you've been on..it so resembles mine. I've been drunk on the same wine, I wish to be annhilated at the same altar. Stay around, I treasure thee x

        1. The exchanging of breaths that, like fireflies, shall land deep in each other’s flesh and soul, searing into each other our unique calligraphy that bespeaks love’s eternal alphabet. Let us drink together from this cup which is about to overflow and carry us like river into the ocean beyond time. I treasure thee as well, Himani. I sent you an email, should it arrive in your junk filter.
