The Ritual.

Darling, my lips measure your spaces and wounds
with the thumb, I knit seismic waves on your back
Paradises stitching, lands coinciding inside
Like a wildflower, I bloom here.
Soils: A bark of memories, red and black.
I travel beneath the surfaces and measure
the cleaving knots, dome-shaped illusions.

Light strikes the stardust and I am a Mirror again
Foretelling your miseries
Holding the icicles of stories on my palms,
I have a newborn skin tonight,
with things to clean
with love as sweet medicine
with White curtains
Sun-kissed air, I am a falling bridge
Having a heart as your canvas.
Flickering. Motionless. oh, Darling.

      1. I am sorry if I have put down your morale in any way, but I think to see something and to feel something with broader aspects you have to make some distance between them…and your words are so full of love, that’s why I thought that. However it’s completely my point of view. ☺️

      1. Then I have been remiss for that. I apologize! No excuses, but I’ve been a bit busier and haven’t taken the time I need to remind other people of their lovely work. All the best! 😄

  2. How tremendous this is!! The sensuality steams through the screen; yet so human with imperfections and frailties bleeding.
    Congratulations word conqueror; I surrender on my knees ❤ ❤

  4. What I loved it that you titled this seduction ‘the Ritual’.
    If I look deep there is something very comforting yet something dark lurks in the corners of the title. All is in the perception. But well written my darling!
