Because I have studied him

Spread the love

Because I’ve studied him;
know exactly how it plays across chiseled features,
this wild honey,
this art of reaching into the soul merely
by listening—
it appears cloudier still,
how lips taste like every thought I’ve ever had;
this magnetic hypothesis’s efficacious
is confusing.

    Oh, Sanaa, this line is just so good:
    “how lips taste like every thought I’ve ever had”

    I’m gonna swim right there for just a little while. Wonderful.

  4. There is no escaping magnetic attraction, Sanaa! I love the thought of ‘wild honey… reaching into the soul’ and lips tasting ‘like every thought I’ve ever had’. No wonder it’s confusing!

  8. Lucy says:

    I love this. The beauty entwined, the rawness of the piece, and the passion, it’s stunning. I also love the confusion at the end, because of how so many emotions entangle us in their web, we experience a plethora of them. Brilliantly penned and sensual, indeed.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Lucy 😀 so glad you enjoyed it 💄❤️

  9. Erotic, sensual, yet existential, this piece is bang on, for when lust arrives with the cloudy glasses, intellect and logic are sent to their room

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Glenn 😀 so glad you liked it 💄❤️

  10. I love how strong the opening line is on this, and then the imagery the follows on. I had to have a little pause after “this art of reaching into the soul merely / by listening”. The pacing is so perfect.

      That is such high praise! Thank you so much, Carol 😀 so glad the poem resonated with you 💄❤️

    I like the way this piece changes tune from oh so knowing to confused. Love is just like that. This line is stellar…”how lips taste like every thought I’ve ever had”.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Mish 😀 so glad you enjoyed it 💄❤️

  22. Dora says:

    The sensually evocative qualities along with the keen perceptiveness is disorienting, like passion. Well done, Sanaa. So beautiful.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Dora 😀 so glad you liked it 💄❤️

  23. I could feel her draw to him, especially in the line with the lips as echoed above. I almost feel like she’s saying she knows him so well, but she can’t quite comprehend the power of those feelings, a fun mystery unravel!

    1. Sanaa says:

    I love the phrase ‘how lips taste like every thought I’ve ever had’ – the effort to understand someone we love is eventually rewarded, if they love us back.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Ingrid 😀 so glad you liked it 💄❤️

  26. this magnetic hypothesis’s
    efficacious is confusing.

    The more desirable the more mystifying they become. It somehow is a natural phenomenon so it seems! Truly said Sanaa!
