In city of grey mists and unfulfilled desires

Spread the love

Night is emblem of death, discord and delirium,
yet I allowed myself
to tread
along darkening streets of cobblestone
as thoughts of you
caress burning skin– I whispered your name
longing for you
to unfurl me as petals of unadulterated rose
and deep conversation.

  10. That’s an effective, alliterative list of three, Sanaa: ‘death, discord and delirium’. A dark beginning to a romantic poem that ends with:.
    ‘…unfurl me as petals of unadulterated
    rose and deep conversation’.

    Very seductive and lovely poem. All I can say is KL is inspiring some sensual poetry:) Have not been there for decades. Use to stay at Batu Ferringhi in Penang. At the time there were only two hotels there…yes that long ago. Beautiful place back then.

  23. Raw sensuality softened a bit by those rose petals.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Victoria πŸ™‚ so good to see you ❀️

  24. Jim says:

    A beautiful yet wistful 44, Sanaa. Walking the darkened street can be very scary. I remember walking back to our hotel at 39th Street and 9th Avenue quite late at nights. Dark, quiet, and desolate.
    ..

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Jim πŸ™‚ so glad you liked it ❀️

  25. This is beautiful sensuality.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Susie πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it ❀️

  26. Lona Gynt says:

    A lot of the comments talk about the visual richness, and it is true, you draw from a rich palette of dark and beautiful shades, but I was struck by the tactile sensuality, the rose brings an image not only of color but of a velvet feel, and the description of the skin whispering out to the night. So beautiful.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Lona πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it ❀️

  27. Love and lust are such delicious dangers. We see their teeth, but we still jump in for the kiss. Even if we know the bite will eventually get us.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely πŸ˜€ thanks for stopping by, Magaly ❀️

  28. gillena says:
