The Morning After

The morning after, I watch you sleep, dawn-pearled
and crumpled in lust-musky sheets still rumpled
from the thresh and billow of last night's love.
I feel the pearlescent essence of you slowly leach,
the secret warm seep lacing my thighs, cooling to opaque streaks.

Last night, the room was tropical with heat:
air simmering with cinnamon sighs,
vermilion vibes, kaleidoscope cries;
your hands cupping my nipples like rose-pink shells,
my mouth mouthing please-yes-oh against yours
as we clung and came in a hothouse spin of stars.

The morning after, light is always softer;
a languid tease of gold tonguing curtain cracks,
gentle, like a lover trailing warm fingers
over gilded skin, tracing newness upon me.

    Very good provocative writing my friend. You make people feel like they are almost there with the visions you create with your words. Your friend Michael

    Fierce setting & message. "Cinnamon sighs", "vermilion vibes", "kaleidoscope cries"...flawless tone in your work.
