Show Me

A bright light engulfs the room
and suddenly disappears
ushering a blazing essence 
that  abruptly evolves in the atmosphere,
buttons unlatched 
zippers break loose
shirts collapses over skirts
flesh dancing in flesh
flesh devouring flesh
and impatient breath 
whispering soft words in her ears.
emotions bathing in emotion
exotic moment intoxicated with fear.
listen carefully and tell me what you hear?
sounds thundering beyond steep mountains
doors hammering speechless voices 
debris flying high in the air,
but they lie there firing  on without fear.
Lights grow dim
and a mysterious sound chime in.
Pum  Pum  Pum
It must be the voice of an angel 
walking up and down his gigantic chest,
kindling a soft fire that rips aimlessly through their ears.
It captivates their emotion
and enflame their burning passion.
dancing and prancing 
skipping and dipping 
sliding and gliding
they went to the extreme.
Eyes fixed in a steadfast motion
calculating the mysterious sound
chest pressing against chest
chest pounding upon chest
spilling tears of joy all over her face.

    It makes me think of war and when humans have a brief window to express their passion they take it. Damn the flying bombs! I have never known war but I can imagine when death is looming close you feel things with greater intensity. I felt that in your poem.

    the heat n steam, that parts the dream, the puntuation stills, the tortured breath, till stillness yet, when all have got their fill, and love surfs oer the hill, in rapture of the thrill, so says the daffodill... Don re: Show Me....Christine Phillips
