Breathless

 

Image result for romance picture vintage

These lips entice your arms like an inebriated night

Meteors shaking, beneath the liquid earth

Inch by inch I am a white cloth,

coveting, hiding under the layers of painted gush

An arrow of light-bulbs, crisp and soft

With a piquant throbbing bowl of  salt,

the algae smooth and honey dripping,

chuckles held in the moisture of these fists

and my breasts lost, sounding like pepper.

You whisper my name again in the numb air

And I cast a spell on your desiccated tongue.

P.S To my love

  1. You have a way of presenting imagery that is a style all on its own. No one else can do this here:
    “With a piquant throbbing bowl of salt,
    the algae smooth and honey dripping,
    chuckles held in the moisture of these fists
    and my breasts lost, sounding like pepper.”
    No one else. Believe that.
