Fragments

Art by Francine van Hove

 

She sifts through his poems

studying every nuance

examining every subtext

measuring every sentence

considering every meaning

reviewing every word.

 

She digs ever deeper

for a fragment

of her.

Choose

 

I send a kiss

across the miles

for you to choose

where it lands,

for you to feel

my lips

my breath

my desire

my longing

my lust

upon your gorgeous skin.

Beautiful Thief

 

You are a beautiful thief

You steal my time

You steal my balance

You steal my attention

You steal my concentration

You steal my sleep.

 

You are a beautiful thief.

You take my breath away.

‘Like’

 

There is no

‘Like’

I long to see

bestowed

upon this untidy

inelegant

tangle

of random words

more fervently

more ardently

more deeply

than yours.

Words

 

Today I have

words to write

words to read

words to learn

words to sharpen

words to hone

words to borrow

words to follow

words to choose

words to lose

but the best

of words

I save

for you.

She has it

francine-de-van-hove-11

 

He adores women.

Their curves, their elegance, the softness of their silky skin. The way their bodies sway when they walk, Their sense of humour, their warmth, their generosity, their clear, incisive intelligence.

He adores their hair, their eloquent eyes, the hallowed velvet of their throat, the aching sensuality of their thighs.

He adores their femininity, their courage, their balance, their insanity. The way they talk so intimately amongst themselves.

He adores their resilience, their vulnerability. their anger, their passion, their truth and their lies.

He adores their motherhood, their sisterhood, their sainthood, He adores their independence, their sociability, their ability to survive.

He adores the fact that he finds them all so desperately, outrageously fucking sexy.

And yet there is something. Something that turns adoration into hungry desire.

Something intangible, wild, expressive, beautiful, endearing, submissive, strong and utterly mesmerizing that compels him. Something that captivates him completely.

She has it.

I originally posted this seven years ago.  It is my hymn to women in general. Although when it was written it may well have been for one in particular. And who knows, it might even be for one now.

Someone

 

There is always

someone

who is our weakness

 

Always someone

who breaks through

all our defences.

 

Always someone

who leaves us

breathless.

One to be adored

 

You

are a goddess

a priestess

a woman

a girl.

 

You

are an angel

a siren

a dancer

a nymph.

 

You

are one

to be adored.

Weakness

Art by francine-van-hove

 

She has a weakness

for strangers and poets

artists and dreamers

masters and dancers

adventurers and saints

and men

who make her feel

dangerous and safe

at the same time.

Atom

 

Somehow I know

for certain

that I have just

been touched

by an atom

that has been

touched by another

that touched

another

and another

and another

that touched

an atom

that has been touched

by you.
