Closed curtains in day time

grayscale woman in bed

The dust of you is still impregnated in my palm

I run you through my hair, over my cheeks, down

my neck, between my rising breasts

like washing without water

our hair pressed into the sheets as you

pushed me deeper with your own weight

our magnetism inflaming the very air

your scent is my obsession

carried in my skin like rare perfume

only you possess

I hold you after you are gone

in a thousand ways

words have never touched you

in the darkness when I say

the silhouette of you drives me wild

I do not have fingers enough to

press into your skin and leave my

indent of love

you smile a weary smile, for you are

already thinking of other things

and I am only building desire to

a higher pitch

as if tasting you once sets me aflame

and I burn again and again

with the memory

lighting the way to never ceasing

if there were a hundred years

I’d still be aching for your touch

my thirst

never sate

a need to climb inside you

and fuse into one

reaching across

where you lay

the outline still visible

in the weak light coming through

closed curtains in day time

  1. This is absolutely beautiful:

    “your scent is my obsession

    carried in my skin like rare perfume

    only you possess

    I hold you after you are gone

    in a thousand ways

    words have never touched you

    in the darkness when I say

    the silhouette of you drives me wild

    I do not have fingers enough to

    press into your skin and leave my

    indent of love”

    Hands down, such a sensational blend of words.

  2. Being Vegetarian since 13 I haven’t eaten meat so have no idea about that, but I will ask the doc 🙂 The symptoms are different though. They think it’s Epstein Barr (Chronic) that’s caused the Stomach Arrythmia and it basically cycles and sometimes I’m good, sometimes it comes back to bite. Overall, much better than August 2017 when I was in and out of the ER every week. And down to 80 pounds. I’m good 🙂
