A little something

This thing we have? 

I’ve learned never to ask

“What are we”? 

The truth is:

We’re nothing.

A little something in the evening

A soft hand on a hard place

A gentle caress of the face

Going nowhere. Nowhere to go.

This time I’m ok with that.

You don’t sing me songs, right any wrongs.

You just touch and go.

Ask me no questions

Tell me no lies

Our conversation is made up of sighs

Moans. Groans.

We’re on loan. Not alone.

I don’t look for hidden gems

I don’t dig at your soul.

It is what it is.

A little something. For a little while.

Citrus Light

adult-2179093_1920

Can I be a warm balmy evening?

Can I be fresh citrus light?

Can I coat you in apple blossoms

Taste your cherry flavored gum

Just for fun?

Can I breathe out desire and soak in stress

Make life seem less…. just less.

Can my soft skin tip yours so that goosebumps hold you close

Can I be the mosquito that sucks your blood

Both annoying and good

Scratch. Scratch me.

Let me in

Under your skin

All over your mouth.

Let me linger on your fingers

Loll on your nose

In quiet repose.

I can be in all of your senses

All of your dreams

Just wish it so. Wish it true.

So I can be all of those things for you.

Lava Girl

couple-731890_1920

This is what I’m made for

To float like dandelion seeds in the wind

To dream of your tongue on my navel

To taste the sap

To sip from your tap

This is what I’m born for

To crave your skin

To long for you to be in

And out

And around and around.

I will linger and linger

For the tip of your finger

Like a seal on rock

To feel your ….

I’m lava now

Hot and molten

Waiting to erupt.

Scrambled Legs

womens-2318996_1920

You scrambled my legs

Macerated my brains

I’m all sorts of jam but no preserve.

 

You liquefy the bones of me

Turn my organs to pulp.

I can’t speak. I gulp.

 

With just a lick and a nibble

All I can do is dribble.

I’ve turned into quite the fool

Standing in a pool of drool.

One Night

girl-97433_1920

‘Just one night’ he said ‘And then no more’

It hasn’t happened but I feel like a whore.

‘Just one time.. she won’t find out.’

It hasn’t happened but he’s still a lout.

‘But no more contact, no more texts

This is not a relationship

Just merely sex’.

Does he know I’m human

That I have heart?

Was I not clear about it from the start?

I have feelings and if we shag

He’ll throw me away like a dirty rag.

I’ll want it to be special

I’ll want it to be more

But I’ll be left lying at the door.

So he really thinks I want a one night stand?

I’d rather use my own right hand.

Semi-decent Human

pair-1974236_1920.jpg

Your persistence paid off…

I love you.

Yep that’s it. I do.

You are human after all.

And that is my only requirement.

A semi-decent human and I’ll be yours forever.

That’s why I don’t allow myself to go so easy.

There isn’t enough of me to divide out with you all.

That’s why it took so long.

But once you chip away the shell

I’m all soft inside.

I’m like slime in those kids toys.

Throw me around and I’ll stick to the wall

I’ll stick to you all.

So be careful.

Once I’m covered in fluff

You’ll have enough

Longing

woman-506120_1920

Oh silken longing

You wove your way between us

And the heat we felt was like no other

Thick and unctuous.

Palpitating. Radiating.

Destructive.

Killing us kindly.

Blindly.

We followed it to hell and

Now we spin in sulfurous steam

Flayed and splayed.

A fire that will never turn to cinder

Never return to sender.
