Realization

Art by Michael Liepke

Suddenly

she realises

her pulse racing

her heart pounding

her mouth dry

her thoughts tumbling

over themselves

dangerously

that she

is the one he wants

that she

is his fantasy.

Opportunity

 

The things you do not do

when an opportunity arises

you will never do.

Because similar opportunities

are never quite the same

and the original opportunity

will never come again.

Butterfly Net

Pieter Wagemans

Butterfly Net

.

She reads him avidly

hungrily

looking for patterns

for answers

for hints

for clues

for oxygen to fuel

the breathless possibility

that she might be ‘she’

.

Meanwhile

he chases her soul

with a butterfly net

spun from the best

of his words

to capture her

completely.

This is not new – posted two years ago at least. But I still have the butterfly net somewhere.

In dreams

 

I will not be held

responsible

or accountable

or answerable

or culpable.

Nor will I

apologize

or feel guilty

or accept liability

or be judged

or even damned

for all the

dark

delicious

decadent

dirty things

I do to you

in my dreams.

Your touch

Art by Marcos Beccari

 

From a distance

across oceans

borders

mountains

cities

I will lay

your hands

upon you.

 

In your touch

I will be a lover

a poet

your Master

a stranger

the devil

a holy man.

 

I will be the name

in your mouth

the cry

on your lips.

Dream of paradise

 

Tonight

when I dream

of paradise

there will be pirates

and thieves

full sails

and deep seas

tall ships

and mutiny

adventure

and destiny.

 

Tonight

when I dream

of paradise

you will be

the treasure

I am buried in.

The girl in the photograph

Felicity Jones by Mark Abrahams

 

The girl in the photograph

The girl in the photograph
is swagger and poise
shyness and hope
uncertainty and strength

The girl in the photograph
is desire and fear
softness and style
fantasy and real

The girl in the photograph
is hunger and joy
knowledge and warmth
rebellion and love

The girl in the photograph
is danger and sex
promise and dreams
intelligence and wild

The girl in the photograph
is not mine
but I wish
she was

.

The photograph here is the stunning English actress Felicity Jones (a long-term crush), and was taken by Mark Abrahams for © GQ Magazine in 2014. Since I posted this a while back she has found much deserved fame in the Star Wars franchise. The poem is not about her.

This is not one of my new ones – I think I first posted it three years ago, but I hope you enjoy. Sometimes I see a girl in a photograph…..
