Specters



~~~

Your eyes

Blued steel

Daggers

Forged to pierce

The heart

Of any mere

Mortal man

~~~

Your hair

Long and wild

Liquid ebony

Scented

As free

And unadorned

As your spirit

~~~

Your lips

Full and luscious

Painted and parted

In the want

To be consumed

They create

Undeniable hunger

~~~

Your heart

An ocean

Unexplored

And filled with

Abounding life

Hiding a treasure

To be found

~~~

Specters

That haunt

Every moment

Every dream

Every wish

Of the man

Who loves you

~~~

  1. The heart, the ocean, a great metaphor to a very precise and perfectly written poem filled with images and movement. I feel it as a song with an intense sort of forward moving rhythm. Great work my friend!

    Wow! Just wow! This one rendered me speechless. 😍

  3. I’m sure that it was real – that I could feel the pull of your words toward the intensity of emotions behind them!

    powerful imagery. When I first saw the phrase “blued steel”, I thought of Zoolander πŸ™‚
