As of late I have learned

Spread the love

You pressed into me, indeliberately;
how is it that we realize months after the first taste?
And before I knew it, I melted.
Your lips erubescent made the light in the room grow
just a little bit darker,
just a little bit cognizantβ€”
I am conscious of the clouds chuckling behind my back
my inner city blushing with a heat wave that comes
before the rain,
if only I could turn poetry into drops torrential

you would know desire and acheβ€”
I would place them upon every sacred inch of your skin,
a monsoon, a deluge,
you have a body sensually sculpted for softer sighs,
somewhat like thulian sunset undressingβ€”
these days I find myself standing on the edge, certain.
Can you feel the wind slipping through the trees, its defenses?
I may have to
stop writing.

  6. Lucy says:

    The real crime here is what can I say that hasn’t already been wonderfully said? This is remarkable, beautiful, sensual, and mystical. The intimacy you describe is divine:

    “you have a body sensually sculpted for softer sighs,
    somewhat like thulian sunset undressingβ€”
    these days I find myself standing on the edge, certain.
    Can you feel the wind slipping through the trees, its defenses?
    I may have to stop writing.”

    Intense, Sanaa! I really like the idea of enlisting a physical phenomena to show a person just how much you feel for them. A torrential rain covering every inch of their skin would let them know!
