I hunger

I hunger…


Serenity plagues me,

As in, this deepening calm

Purloined my intimacy

Gone that body chaffing balm…

My eyes and her rose-wet cave,

…the intoxicating waves—


-with agony they crash…

and crash implacable

And hesitations pass

With my surrendered will

Forged to you, a weapon

and me an expression…


Doe-eyed and roving hands

Reserved a spot for them

Upon your silky lands

To pathways since condemned

And your soul banned from thought

Enfolds unto me taut—


With no self-consciousness

Surrendered in sensation

to melt into nothingness

Passed out in repletion

From this mighty paragon

What once plagued me was gone.


Oh how I hunger…

    A surrendering to the inevitable, when intoxicating sensualities become irretrievable coercion, into where all translates into one colliding force of passion’s sweet caress. Beautifully written, my friend!
