As Night Descends...

Beckon these eyes a whisper in trees
Scarlet passion in hot molten heat
With your fiery touch I will hit my knees
Fevered oscillation on warm amber sheets

This skin awaits your raw carmine kiss
Breath…indrawn from smoldering flames
Inside deep eyes of sweet chocolate Swiss
In searing red throes I call out your name

Trembling in the blazing torch of your touch
I whimper blue....a shattered disarray
A blistered journey…you are my crutch
A bursting heart pulsing crimson display

         Morning awaits a crushed coral flower
                     Entombed......inside an ebony tower

    Another wonderful display of your lovely way with words..Beautifully written. Keep it up..Love it..Thanks for your comments on my: The Kids Have All Been Fed. She better not turn around too quick, I might kick her in her rear . That one made me cry when I wrote it, and I don't even have any kids. Don't even have a wife. I can still remember when my mom and dad use to fight and how much it use to keep me and my brothers and sisters upset. I left home when I was 17. Lawrence in Lou.Ky

    ... reading this one.. yet again... and melting... I think you are my poetic idol..... LOL... Thanks for all your comments Christie....

  1. Date: 2/20/2009 10:57:00 AM can't think of anything else to say.....are sonnets supposed to be this intense? I know they're usually love poems but somehow I don't think this one's about love (mental love)...I won't even bother analyzing the blue whimper.

    Christie, this reads like a passionate dream, one where we reach out to another, call to them, share with them only to awaken the next morning with the realization we are still where we feel we cannot escape from. The words you use are so descriptive an clear, along with the style this is one beautiful write. Hope to read more soon, have things to deal with. Michaelwith
