You glide on eventide
And sway through first light
Straight into my heart – even as you depart
And always, I yearn for your intimate bliss
Always, I crave your mellifluous voice
For no shape can fit – the space you leave behind
She does not answer his every call
But she comes when need is greatest
She gives and holds nothing back
Only to wake and leave each time
But always to return
Always to bring more
Always pulled back
To the one who loves her most.
In her absence, his love ages like fine wine
While her desire rumbles like magma beneath the lusty mountain of memory
For she knows the patter of his step, like the beat of her own heart
And he breathes her fragrance, like a scent from dreams that lingers in reality
How cruel to be worlds apart
To meet only in festive times
And yet we survive
And yet we stay true
And yet our love is always stronger
For we know our future is nigh
And one Christmas soon, we’ll be ready –
To jingle all the way…
Angels and Demons(An image-inspired poem)
My given name was once Davida.
Amongst the Angels, I am a part of many!
I follow rules and bask in the collective praise
Yes, many exalt us
Yes, we are beautiful, benign, benevolent and bequeathed superfluous divinity
But always it is ‘we’ and never ‘me’
‘Us’ and never ‘I’
And yet inside me wells torrential tides of desire, tender troves of passion, and a tumultuous thirst to discover who I truly am.
There are countless dangers on this path that calls to me
Wolves that hunger to devour
Cunning felines wrapped in deceit
And poisonous bats from deepest fears
But an Angel, I am – and none of these can hurt me
Yet an Angel is not all that I am
And the darkness intrigues me
For endless light is now too bright
And the demon within, has awoken…
My given name is Davida. But now my chosen one, is Anne.
Hey Everyone. I am posting two separate pieces today. I so loved writing them this morning and couldn’t wait to share.
I don’t think I’ve ever done a 2in1 post before this, and I won’t be doing it again any time soon. This is just a special one for the festive season. I thought I’d hit you with some contrasts just this once.
Tis the season and I’m extra eager for your thoughts.
Stay safe everyone, stay loving.
P.S WordPress is still glitching but it’s my network provider. I am finding ways to some of your work but it’s slow going. I will be there eventually.
