Chant

Realistic-Portraits-by-Christina-Papagianni-21

Chant

I will chant your name

The chords beneath my fingers
no longer break the silence
with words I cannot find.
Only hunger resonates.

I will chant your name,

I will chant your name
in this night of endless yearning,
drowning in the echoes
yet thirsty beyond belief.

I will chant your name

Your eyes have held me captive
Starved me without thinking,
crucified my days.
Yet our suffering is the same.

I will chant your name

I will chant your name
A hymn to aching distance
Until all latitude means nothing
Only lines to score desire.

I will chant your name.

Your body will dance before me
a vision of solemn beauty
numbing me with need.
A longing beyond your golden skin.

I will chant your name

I will chant your name

I will chant your name …

If you have read my untidy word juggling, you will know this. But I like it. So here it is once more in case you don’t know it.

Word Theft

I hate plagiarism

This post is stolen almost word for word from me.

https://rasantiago58.wordpress.com/2016/06/28/find-you

I am afraid this woman is a thief. Perhaps you should check out her work to see if any of it is yours.

I have posted this work twice

I am a slave

Art by Loui Jover

 

I am a slave

to the fascination

of her mind

the beauty of her face

the eloquence of her eyes

the sensuality of her mouth

the seduction of her breasts

the rhythm of her hips

the glory of her arse

the temptation of her thighs.

I am a slave

and she is mine.

Serene

Art by Danielle Richard

 

There is a stillness about her

a quiet peace

a cool poise

an elegant tranquillity

a gentle serenity.

.

She rarely reveals the fire

burning within.

.

Except to me.

Anachronism

fabian_perez_untitled_II_print

They make me laugh

these boys

with their 50 Shades clichés

their limited vocabulary

their barely disguised misogyny

their ‘do it because I say’ mentality

their unlikely claim

to a suit.

.

They surely only thrill

the most naive

and un-demanding

of girls…

.

Yet perhaps it is me

that is old-fashioned.

Anachronistic.

A remnant

from some classical and heroic past.

.

One day soon

I shall write it all

as it was

And then hang up

forever

this blindfold

and cuffs.

.

Written two years ago. Still true, though the hanging up gets closer.

Hush

Art by Azamat Kuliev

 

When it began

there were no fireworks

no pealing of bells

no unexpected violins

no dirty trumpets

no endless drum roll

no children carrying flowers

no choirs of celestial angels

no multiple gun salutes

no roar of jets overhead

no rolling breaking news

no million hits on YouTube

no city street cavalcade

no prime time TV chat shows

no crowds filling up the square

no celebrities endorsing

no leaders making tributes.

no mystical signs in the heavens.

 

When it began

you and I

us

there was only a deep hush

as if the whole universe

was holding its breath.

Like no one before

Art by Victor Bauer

 

I want my poetry

to seduce you

to undress you

to restrain you

to control you

to direct you

to pleasure you

to thrill you

to use you.

 

I want to own you

like no one before
