Consumed With Each Touch

She was passion personified
With suicidal tendencies 
One step from going over the edge
A lopsided smile with a twinkle in her eye
With just a hint sadness

She moved with the grace of an angel
Hearts fluttered as she walked by
Men intoxicated by her presence
A fight could break out at a moment's notice
Drama just followed her like a queen

Men sacrificed themselves on her altar
Drawn to sexy wrapped with a crazy bow
She consumed them with each passionate touch
Needing their love to satisfy that longing
Yet there wasn't a heart where it could flow

When morning comes their beds are empty
She rises before the light of day
Away from them their imagined angel
She leave a feather on their bed
Heads out the door and flies away

    oh my, Richard, this is a lot like the woman in my poem I called "Her Sustenance." Except mine is about the Goddess of Love (lust). and yours is too (she is a wayward angel!) Love it.

    She could have had any man's love but it seems there was no place for a heart in her life.No strings attached...A very sad and well crafted poem.To share the most intimate of you without somrone you dnt love is many's reality nowadsys.Im just the old fashioned kind : ) Excellent visionary and thought.

    Thanks Donna, I woke up with the first two lines bouncing in my brain. I had to write them down before they evaporated.

    There is some fierce strength in these lines. I am applauding loudly from California at the truths behind this writing. Excellent work!

    Ahhhhhhh.....hmmmmmmmm.....well..........WOW! Very very well written Richard....Amazing, to be honest! May I point out a few things? Just because I want nothing to detract from this piece? Moments needs an apostrophe before the S....Last line of 3rd stanza...THERE instead of their! Last line...FLIES...It isn't that DARN spellchecker...It was the burning state of your mind when you wrote this! ;)
