Sunken Treasures

He speaks of sunken treasure
Draws maps to fortunes you may find
He writes it boldly as to where it may lie
Taking pleasures in his masculine pride
A gentleman cultivated in artistry
Loving lavishly he knowingly struts
Boosting his flirtatious ego
His moves, planned, calculated
To arise primal pumping blood
Eyes that manipulate and conspire
Until your dreams become endless desire
He breathes a burning fire
Embers embedded within
Unsuspected  your caught within his grasp
Words uttered to ensnare
He persuades you in a game of trust
Leads you into passion and lust
Making you believe in sunken treasures


thanks to PD for the inspiration to write this poem.

This poem was very different for me. I usually do not write darker type poems . It is more of a slam type which yes is not my style. Thanks for your comments. love phyl

Phyllis, a nice way in keeping it free verse. I love how you were inspired by one of my poems. A great honor. However, I have to be honest. I enjoy how you kept with the theme and idea of a man taking to a heart while filling it with riches, then burying it. Oh, love, love, love, what shall I do with it... :) Thank you for mastering the first 2 lines... LOVE LINDA

Hi Phyllis, I had writer's block, but writing with others helped me pull through a little. The struggle is real and frustrating. Perhaps one day you and I can write a little something. On Winter. I think winter's one of my favorite subjects. So much can be written when thinking about winter and its effects... HUGS...

It has been a struggle with writer block but your poem Midas Touch inspired me and thank you for that. I have been looking for different topic to write on and love and lost love seems to be where I have directed my thoughts to.
