Shiny Minded Stone

"What's your story?"
she questions,
"you seem interesting."

wildflower eyes
I reply, "NOW."                                                                    (Kwan$aba! Ha! Really, 

often people become confused                                                    
by such a unique response                                                            
not this one...                                                                                
she's a beauty                                                                       
shiny minded stone                                                                  
lives warm under veins
lacks definition of alone

tho solo she stands
tallest green blade
each time the oily blade passes above

she stays the same
tingling pulses exhale her pores
she'd rather sink
than have to think the way of worldly whores

malice skips her
no ripples in the lake
dripping from her face
sunshine slips across tangerine cheeks

gold flows throughout waves 
streaming locks
sky clear eyes surprise those
choosing to be consumed 
by her entice

hands free of envy
no webs to spin
hips unmolested
thighs slick

be warned
she will divide you
no voodoo 
or silly twisted games
though safe may escape you

the girl
baby of zero maybes
she knows

as clarity lent us its giant umbrella 
her lipstick smacked my tongue 
from there
we never looked back

Well I sure am glad i read this beauty, Joey!! Only 33 reads!? I loved the imagery and words you put here, totally captivated me...enjoyed reading this immensely and yes, that sounds like some treasure of a woman, this is very romantic in a not too obvious way, which makes it even more romantic to me. Ha! I am weird! Faving this :D!

Yes, you do really well with this kind of poetry. WE are such complete opposites. I laboriously work on forms and you just let your free verse flow!! I don't know if I quite get this, but I love the images in it. Disney land? I would love it but I'm too poor to even take a FREE trip anywhere since I'd lose out on my work hours to survive once I got back from the trip . haha. Luv, Andrea
