In the wasteland wilderness of disappointed love I find you Haggard and famished Ravaged by the blazing sun I find you Spent and on the verge of death I find you I kneel beside your still form I wet your parched lips with my tongue of truth Your eyes flicker open And I see the fight for life dawn With my hand behind your neck I gently lift your face to my breasts of nourishment Weakly, you start to feed on my love’s sustenance I speak softly to you, words of hope and courage Slowly, some strength returns to your frame Knowing the need for solid food to survive I lay open to you the scrumptious feast of my body A rich faire of succulent meat in abundance More than enough to bring life back to your wasting limbs I call you to eat... In a frenzied need for survival you devour Tearing into flesh, you satiate your starved body You feed, you feed, you feed Engorging yourself on my love Insatiable, unstoppable, indefatigable You feed the demon of your hunger The memory of your near death fuels the frenzy There is no pause in your love feast I give, I give, I give Still in the onslaught of your primal savagery Knowing this ravaging repast Will bring life to your bones I give Until you finally lick your fingers and lips Satisfied The cool of the night approaches I languidly make you drink from my fountain the frenzy replaced by fantasy the fervor for survival by dessert of desire Refreshment for the journey head I let you regain your strength As you then slumber on my pillowed breast Your last night in the wilderness of disappointed love Reaches an end with the dawn of a new day As I hold your hand and lead you away Out of the wilderness and into verdant oasis Of my love Eileen Manassian

Desire is never too far away, Jimbo. It is my constant companion...and at times, overrides my rational thought. Thanks for the visit. I appreciate it.

From the wilderness comes something extraordinary, yet from you the poet, this just a continuation of amazing poetry...

You are everything an exhausted and injured hero needs in this brutal world...his rescuer...his nourishment...his lover...and his teacher...the romantic, and ravaging process of resuscitation is so total, from the urgent lip lick to the gentle suckling...and then the sweet ravishing! "I wet your parched lips with my tongue of truth...Engorging yourself on my love..." Mmmm....you know how to lead a man to paradise Eileen...J.A.B. FAV!

:) Hello, Eagle...Warriors get wounded....a hero needs a heaven...A man is only as strong as his woman makes him. It is a universal truth...Paradise is not a far off place...though there is a paradise to come......Paradise is the here and now. "Oh...heaven is a place on earth." Do you know that song? Thank you, Justin. This write forced itself on my consciousness...demanding expression. I'm glad you liked it. I value your judgment.
