Supplement Me

Moon shed maximum bulb shares us her grey making floodlight flash beam Hitting front sides bright, the rest seen by cautious shuffle, by textured touch Forest in scratched cotton, we wander, lost Find ourselves intrigued by her windswept Tree top violent fighting, underneath kept Becalmed below canopy' s tantrum tossed Frail lady limbs lift in praise of invisibility Humans don't usually walk in the dark Quiver leaf edges wave light seeking spark Together no register of dark difficulty Trek begun in afternoon's everlong promise Assured us fireplace evening in holiday home True to weekend whimsy, we went without phone Too hazy to feel when dusk tamped upon us Blinking regularly at beacon moon vivid Busy branch hands reach to tangle my hair You strip it from me, supplant yours there Scooped, encaved by you, lips delivered Questioned, will this ease our fear, kisses Colourless mouths drive and receive message Clarity in your signalling lips impressive Way home where we are, present, viscious Biting reminds me, intensity of life is vital Your intent brings surety, my body flourishes Urge to absorb your heartbeat encourages Chest connection pulsate, music to cry to Roar of angered branches above turn timid Spectators to human demonstration Star ceiling winks at our illicit illustration Hushed forest watches as flush is kindered Closer isn't enough, heat travels free of clothes Bottom on moss embankment sponge flung Entangled in forest enamour, ice fingers stung Blood streams bravely over stoney shallows You become the hum of frantic tree faces Merged mammoth canopy caresses me I chorus with owl implore carelessly One with lost pressed urgent embraces 2nd September 2020

Thanks, Beth. Thought I'd combine lost in forest with love, as one theme can lean on the next, thus (hopefully) obscuring weakness in either category.!
