Sated Love

The look bestowed upon me makes me yearn
A smile that speaks of favored pleasures near
You blow upon the embers make them burn
Shut out the world; enclose me in your sphere

I feel within your arms the burning urge
To claim and make me yours as captive one
Your raw desire now with mine does merge
Your searing hands defy the blazing sun

Scorched in the flame of your inferno’s heat
I moan your name as soul and body melt
Hands clutch and twist the damp and crumpled sheet
As hungry lovers we the rapture felt

A cooling breeze from open window seeps
As sated love once more in dreamland sleeps

Eileen Manassian Ghali

Song of Solomong 2: 5 - 7

Strengthen me with raisins,
    refresh me with apples,
    for I am faint with love.
6 His left arm is under my head,
    and his right arm embraces me.
7 Daughters of Jerusalem, I charge you
    by the gazelles and by the does of the field:
Do not arouse or awaken love
    until it so desires.

    Incredible! You have written a masterful poem here. Great rhyme, great meter, and the choice of words and placement is brilliant. I love the whole poem. The first stanza is breathtaking. I'm in awe.

    Thank you, Mr Seal. Your post is greatly appreciated. I'm glad that I have been able to brush up on my sonnet writing. Craig was great help. I was asked to write one to mark the jubilee hear of our church's establishment in Lebanon. I wrote a sonnet entitled, Faithful through the Years....It was well received. :)

    I need a drink. Another set of powerful lines filled with desire & clarity. Rarely is there something more fierce than an unblinded desire.
