Polaroid

The memories

printed

ink stained

and stored away

often

for a lifetime

never to be

seen again

sometimes

only a reminder

of what

was lost or

once was

most times

just remaining

inside the frame

of a polaroid

 

At first glance

His fingers

ever so slowly

dance across my skin

tracing away

all my insecurities

warm gentle lips

kiss away

the haunting pain

that is buried

deep beneath my skin

at first glance

does he know

who I really am

or the weight

of my existence

his words

sweet like candy

I taste

in the deepest

most fragile parts of me

the warmth

like liquid

escapes me

filling my very soul

intoxicating

and satisfying

Wishing Well – A collaboration with Surrealisticdreams

Had an opportunity to write with my talented friend. Thank you Surrealisticdreams!

 

Sifting through

the lonely thoughts

that come

floating down

one by one

until they hit

the ground

 

Like flakes of snow

they gather

in piles

according to

their ranks

except for the ones

I tuck away

not ready to

let them go

 

Saving them all

deep inside

my stone walls

wish

after

wish

I lock

them all away

 

Until I find

the right stars

to attach each

beautiful one to

til then

they will remain

in this

wishing well

Intoxicating

words

fall like rain

upon

naked flesh

hour by hour

the passion

builds

fingers dance

searching the depths

of my core

the waves

arrive

one after another

until sated

intoxicating

the scent of us

lingers

filling the room
