Exhale (at two AM)

held suspended in split second bliss
along the razors edge….
so many jagged stone paths traveled
                                   saddened…..
thinking life is only there to squander 
in so many moments spent alone

in a mirage of gentle clutches
                of gossamer wings….
the princess at heart awaits
while reality is colder and much harder
like molten steel on broken lines

would it be alright to exhale 
and let the soft breath linger
on a silver wind and diamonds

sparkling a mist of white petals 
skimming a brimming alabaster surface
and you….alone there waiting

mad collision of body sweat and heat 
(arrested by love and captured by lust)

caressing my body
stripped down to the skin
   bury your hands....
entangle them in my auburn hair
mouth to red and panting mouth
     (greedy crimson cherries)
I would taste you in a starving kiss

you would ravish me to insanity
as in this fairy tale land you tend to do
(did Cinderella exist and better yet…did her prince?)
sending shivers up my spine
just a shimmered exhale on your treasured face

I awaken in the abyss 
(dark tower walls built brick by brick)
I pray to slumber 
for that is where I always find you
and in your essence lies my journey

    Such a dream sustains...it's the waking that drains! Lovely, Christie. You never cease to impress me with your talent. God bless! Donna

    "Beautiful dreamer, ta da da taaaaaa." Music and words by Stephen Foster. Hey, Steve would go up in exotic flames with this one, Christie. My pace maker just skipped a beat, then went absolutely bananas. Big Love, daver

    This is so beautiful Christie... every word is just bursting with purpose and crisp, clear picture. I love the imagery or "sparkling a mist of white petals skimming a brimming alabaster surface". You have done an amazing job!

    OH, those dreams of yours, Christie, they drive through me like a knife! Tell me, what are your waking hours like? Of all the poets on the soup, you are one of the biggest mysteries. Your imagination is amazing. Love, daver

    Hi Christie... what a pleasure it is to read a new poem of yours, and this one so wistful that it makes a yearning heart plead...."caressing my body stripped down to the skin bury your hands.... entangle them in my auburn hair mouth to red and panting mouth (greedy crimson cherries) I would taste you in a starving kiss" .. Just set fresh kindling to already raging fires... still your style and individuality shine !
