When the world conspires

 

I am here

when the world conspires

against you.

 

I am here

on your side

without judgement

without reservation

without qualification

without criticism

without presumption

without disapproval

without condemnation.

I am here

on your side.

 

I am here

when the world conspires

against you.

Between my lines

art-by-francine-hove

 

I wonder

if you can feel

the ache in my words

the desire in my sentences

the sex in my poetry.

 

I wonder

if you can feel

the you

between my lines.

If I can touch you

francine-de-van-hove-11

 

If I can touch you

without contact.

If I can reach you

without being there.

If I can arouse you

with the caress

and kiss

of my words.

Then you must

ask yourself

why?

If I touch you

art-by-francine-van-hove

 

If I touch you

deep

and dangerous

and dark

and for longer

than the brief moment

in which you read me

then there is either

an ache for poetry

or a longing

of a different kind

in your soul.

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.

Where she wants to be

e0def16158199c58c130937b62962948

She does not know

when it started

why it began

who reached out

how it will go

what will happen

or where it will end

only that here

and now

is the place

she wants

to be.

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 three 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.
