Distant presence

 

Your distant presence

curls around me

like smoke

like liquid

like ivy

like a cat

like a dancer

like a lover

your exquisite body

finding

the perfect fit.

Waiting

 

A pale

silver-gold

wintry sun

caresses

the walls

and strokes

the furnishings.

 

This late

November afternoon

is silent

hushed

and still.

 

Yet with one eye

half-open

as if waiting

for something

or someone.

Inch by Inch

art-by-javier-arizabalo

 

I am the poetic cartographer

of your sacred body.

I will discover you

and map you,

explore you

and draw you,

observe you

and describe you,

chart you

and render you

inch by perfect inch.

Something about you

 

There is something

about you

a quality

an intelligence

a wit

a generosity

of spirit

even more compelling

even more adorable

even more desirable

than the exquisite beauty

of your bone

and muscle

and of your hair

and skin.

And then

 

I thought

I had become

immune to beauty

indifferent to sexy

unmoved by submission

unstirred by intelligence

unexcited by control

untouched by desire

unaffected by dance

and then

there was you.

That secret

 

That secret.

 

That wild

dark, erotic

sexual fantasy.

 

The one you conceal

from everyone.

The one you hide

from yourself.

 

That secret.

 

That secret

is what attracts me

like a magnet

compels me

like a drug

draws me

moth to flame

makes me yearn

for you

to release it

just for me.

Dark secrets

art-by-victoria-selbach

 

I have learned

to love the way

night descends

fast and early

at this time of year,

cloaking trees, hedges and fields

hiding streams and rivers

blurring edges

disguising shapes

swallowing buildings

 

and concealing

all our dark

and dangerous

secrets.

.

Posted first three years ago, but … well, it is that time of year, and there are sometimes dark secrets.
