Untitled Poem Word of the Day #16

The moon is full,
the beast does arise
howling with frustration
with beauty wise.
No one can tell
no one can tame
lost in the moonlight
a singular lust uncontained.
A mournful note
hangs unbidden
over tender throat.
Teeth bared
saliva flashing
bodies wrapped
with primitive heat.
The fire that burns
searing the souls
of two twined.
Come daylight
they break apart
their masks in place
returning
always
to play their parts.
when two come together
when minds
bodies
hearts
connect
incandescent.

Fiery Necessity

Did you think that I would ascertain?
That I might acquiesce?
My love
it will not subside
I cannot pretend it is not real.
I reach for you
stroke your mind
call to you
make you feel
as I kneel
before you.
Supplication.
Naked
breast bared
heave with shuddered gasps
you fill my senses
my body
as I give to you
release
relentless
romance and pain.
We fall
lust and desire
all consuming
all eating
bodies twisting
becoming one
within the darkness of midnight.

Premature Love

Photo by Allan Filipe Santos Dias on Unsplash

Laying side by side

hands entwined

you pretend not to notice the tears

that caress my cheeks.

I wonder what is wrong

where is it that I fail you

even when you tell me

that we will be alright.

Time and time again

no matter how slowly I move

no matter how much time I take

you are premature

and I am late.

I wish that just for once

we could be together

at the same time

in the same moment

eyes locked

lips close

breathe intermingled.

I lay awake listening to you breath

my heart breaking in two

our love is never going to match

and I should abandon all hope now.
