Addiction

 

Addiction

.

The uncaring night will take me

And oppress me with its heat.

Leave me wide-eyed

and sleepless

In a tangle of tortured sheets.

.

Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.

.

The over bright dawn will find me

And burden me with its hope.

Leave me confused and restless

Tied up tightly in my own rope.

.

Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.

.

The relentless day will trap me

And unsight me with its glare.

Leave me wandering and helpless

Your distance has stripped me bare.

.

Since you became my addiction

I have wanted no one else.

Only to see you dance before me

I have longed for nothing else.

Past readers of this blog will recognise one of my favourite poems. I wrote it nine years ago in strange circumstances.
Posted again because sometimes one becomes addicted …

Behind my lids

 

I am stretched out

lazily

beneath a rare

hot

English sky

body relaxed

eyes closed.

.

You are dancing

naked

in the darkness

behind my lids.

.

I shift

and sigh

and harden.

(almost) all

 

When your days

are dark

and sad

and rainy

I wish you

warm green seas

azure skies

and a hot

golden sun

to stretch

your gorgeous skin

and kiss you

in (almost) all

the places

I would kiss you.

Summer dress

 

I see you

in a summer dress.

Thin straps on elegant shoulders. Your breasts captured sweetly. The curve of your hips caressed. Your arms and legs beautifully bare.

The hem high on your thighs.

Your hair is caught and stroked by the soft, warm breeze. Your skin is kissed by the friendly sun.

Your gorgeous eyes are shining.

Your smile is heavenly.

Yet you are shy

as the dress falls

like a cotton sea

at your feet.

Dreamscape

 

If the night

gives me

complete control

over who fills

my dark

delightful

dirty

delicious

dangerous

decadent

Dominant

dreamscape

it will be you.

 

Oh, believe me

it will be you.

Your light

 

There is

no golden sunlight

no silver moonlight

no glittering starlight

no following spotlight

no revealing headlight

no flickering strobe light

no intense searchlight

no romantic candlelight

more illuminating

more compelling

more beautiful

than your light.

Putting on a show

 

I picture you

pure paradise

perfectly poised

putting on a show

in a little black dress.
