The Magi Beats Sweet Mindless Hum Drums Against Day's End

"The Magi Beats Sweet Mindless Hum Drums Against Day's End"
The abstract lines you hold onto tight are leaving marks in my heart like rope burns the pleasure of winning by not giving in and then some pain when you walk my mind, you never turn away, you stay My mind is volcanic a salve for romantics a soiled grave for real living it is bedded 6ft deep in dreams and new sheets wrapped around us, the notes old for loving and singing it’s unforgiving Love, my Love A tug of war between being there and sliding closer to here I kiss and swap notes on a tongue enveloping our secrets you wet in the swimming of hum drum daily exits book marking our beginnings (LadyLabyrinth / 2020)

"Do you find it gets a little easier Each time you make it disappear? Oh fools the magician bends the rules As the crowd watches his every move"

The shape of the poem made me think of a spine. It’s sad when we allow relationships to become humdrum. The act of not being seen makes being close feel like the furthest away place in the world.

Everyone is seen here. I read extensively, I may not comment on everyone's poems. This place is about 'human connection', not purely about 'writing'; the most important connection some would say is touch - there is something to be said about 'touching' people with your mind. You and many others Lamour'eux - have that beautiful gift. Never lose it, and never let negative comments here or outside of the Consomme, dishearten you. One is never alone, it is just a matter of reaching out. There are some beautiful stellar minds here, who have the gift of touching others - where they need it the most...the heart. Leanne x

Skinnydipping is US Inc. surely is the way to go, but not now, too cold, you'd freeze your gonads off in Australian waters.
