Strolling through the fields of desire

Spread the love

Desire is
feral, that
touches you

until your
insides melt
like a cloud

while words sweet
softly kiss
muted thoughts

🌼

Disheveled
like a pale
rose in sand

my fragrance
clings to you
unchanging

until you
arise from
stranger dreams

🌼

I trace words
on soft skin
not paper

lest passion
wastes away
with blue rain

Desire is
knowing I
can’t have you

🌼

Align my
fleeting thoughts
I’m certain

you know it’s
your name that’s
on my lips

though whispered
in velvet
hot darkness

    Desire. I love that word in a sensuous setting. You did that so very well, Sanaa. I still shake off a little like a wet dog when I read yours or have thoughts arising. With a slight smile on my face. Thank you.

      Thank you so much, Jim 🙂 so good to see you ❤️

  8. All tricube gems, Sanaa! I love the imagery of desire melting your insides like a cloud and the lines:
    ‘I trace words
    on soft skin
    not paper

    lest passion
    wastes away
    with blue rain’.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Kim 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

  9. Old Egg says:

    Such a beautiful but oh so sad love poem Sanaa.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Robin 🙂 so good to see you ❤️

  10. Longing, and the whole idea of “longing,” is a sad thing. Someone is not here, someone is gone away, someone is with someone else. Makes for pretty sad poems….

    To let somone live “rent free in your head,” and in your heart is a waste. Hard to control. There just has to be other ways to be?

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely 🙂 thanks for stopping by, Annell ❤️

  11. Mary says:

    Deliciously sensual! But sad that one feels frustrated in the longing, knowing the person desired is (for some reason) out of reach.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Mary 🙂 so good to see you ❤️

  12. Anna :o] says:

    Sanaa, your words are indeed beautiful.

    “velvet
    hot darkness”

    Love those words to bits!

    Anna :o]

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Anna 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

  13. Marian says:

    Yowza! All right, Sanaa! These are all wonderful and leave me with a deep sigh. I love them!
    Kind of addictive, this form? I haven’t written mine yet but expect it to be enjoyable.
    Really wonderful xo

    1. Sanaa says:

      Yayy!❤️ Thank you so much, Marian 😀 so glad you enjoyed it!❤️

      (Yes the form is fantastic to play with! 😀 thank you for the lovely prompt)

  14. “Desire is knowing i cant have you” is so painfully beautiful. Sigh. You used this form so beautifully. I love “Disheveled as a pale rose in sand”.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Sherry 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

      Thank you so much, Therisa 😀 so good to see you ❤️

  21. I want to take the first 3 words of your poem and dance with them for days and days and days and nights… “Desire is/feral”–what a thought! The images that phrase brings to mind are wild and glorious, and screaming for a story of their own. Yum! Yum!! Yum!!!

    1. Sanaa says:

      Aww gosh!❤️ Thank you so much, Magaly 😀 so glad you enjoyed it!❤️

  22. Susan says:
