~Honey Laced Pages~

One Shot Wednesday @ One Stop Poetry

 

 

We tell a tale together
With our fingertips
We sketch out passions dance
Your imagined smell on my pillow
Tracing rhythmic glimpses
No desire left unsaid
Your language whispers down
The back of my neck
Too lovely to paint with my words
I hear you just the same
As your tongue traces out
The desire in my name
Your fire tastes of honey
Filling in this moment
From my needed space
To yours
Still we collide through these pages
I’m so lost in you
And this
Intoxicating place
You put me in
Reaching out to you with my paper
Biting you with my pen
Loving what is placed before me
While your heart runs through my fingers
And my soul drips to your toes
My ache for your lips
Won’t seem to let me go
I imagine our waters endless
Fighting through a distance
That this life demands
My words beat my desire
Resting in your hands
I swallow your gripping motion
Stretching far beyond this skin
Reflecting our brief moments
With each new line
We begin again

  1. A lovely bit of writing you’ve shared with us today, and the ending note, delightful:
    “I swallow your gripping motion
    Stretching far beyond this skin
    Reflecting our brief moments
    With each new line
    We begin again”
    Passionate and heartfelt.

  2. Each line is indeed a new beginning, Jessica. Very passionate poem with lyrical flow. The desire in the lines fits the image well.
