Mine – 29

should we meet? she asks him
do we dare?
will you be kind the first time?
will you be gentle?
for i’m not perfect
and it’s been awhile
since someone said i was beautiful
it’s been a damn long time
till a soul starts to wither
till it strays in search
of a touch that seeps deep within
for another soul to merge
so should we go ahead with it?
should we dare
throw everything to the wind?
will you be there?

you think me beautiful
you think me perfect
you see through the many masks
i wear
you see through every regret

you see through us
you see through the lies
you hear the words I dare
not say
you hear my cries

you feel my pain
you feel my desire
you know exactly how to make
things right
you know how to play with fire

she can’t remember the last time
she felt beautiful
when he last touched her
in her secret place
when he appeased every fear
and nightmare
when she felt safest
in his embrace

she can only feel
the distance between them
as she counts the days
before his return
for in his arms
is where she belongs
even if they both
will have to burn

Mine – 16

he yearns for her
like she were the spaces
between each breath,
knitting the air
with her smiles,
his heart in tune with her every sigh
and moan,
where there lie only desperation
and desire

Mine – 15

his kisses blaze a trail from her lips
to the base of her neck where her pulse throbs,
hard with longing for so much more,
his hands exploring, moving lower than it did
before

do you want me to stop? he asks just when she thinks
she can’t take any more.
do you want me to keep going
till you’ve reached the limits
of passion’s shores?

where your edges shall be smoothened,
and the raging of the waves calmed?
do you want me to keep on going,
my dove, and leave no stones
unturned?

 

Mine – 14

his hand traces
the scars on her skin
left there so long ago
a faint line here, followed by another,
then another in a row
no judgment in his eyes,
only acceptance
over the things
that he knows

i see you, he tells her,
though i’ll never know
the things you yearned
to scream then
but i hear them –
each scar telling him
their story
from each beginning
to each end.

 

Mine -13

where do we go from here?
she asks him
when our play is over
and the pleasures
are done?
do we return
to the way we used to be
or will the time
we have shared together
be nothing but a memory?

it shall be whatever you wish
he said,
forever –
or just for today.
for you hold the key
to whatever we share
i can do the same things to you
any time, any place,
anywhere.

Mine – 12

a simple touch
is all he needs
to remind him
that she is his
everything from the top
of her head
to the bottom of her feet,
oh, how the sight of her
pleases him 

she makes him
want to recite sonnets,
even odes
in her name.
she’s his Aphrodite,
his Circe,
she has his heart
bound to her,
his soul, enslaved.
