I splurged and bought myself some well-deserved magnetic poetry last year. Composition #1 was released on Facebook, sans formatting because that’s the way Facebook rolls. Here, I present the latest, with formatting because that’s the way WordPress rolls. And it’s inspired by the romance novels I’ve been reading. Why? Because that’s just the way I roll!
I remember wild magic
salt in the night
a fever voiced his desire
throbbing like a secret ghost
come dance, he laughed
a ferocious need blazed
yet I looked away
soul bleeding in the steamy air
caramel lips devouring my vision
a blush of velvet poison explores my naked woman.
I wake to champagne mornings
embraced by perfumed kisses
lingering in the fire of melting darkness
I soften the concrete prisoner
but worry of circling time:
Will I open to this man
and trust the dazzling breeze of home?
