Empty Apartment

Candles sparkle, reflections bounce off the accent wall I painted red
"When a man loves a woman" bangs from the speakers
Pops from the wood echo through the room
my body trembling, your hands are impatient
Tires coated in rain water glides across the black tar blaring from the window cracks
The heat from your dark chocolate skin and the shine from that cherry limade lip gloss I 
picked up from the corner store seemed to scent the room
You change tremendously in size
My emotions are tangled like yarn in the hands of a kitten
My temptations are like mating tiger in the safari
We reach a new esculator of feelings
I take it all in, the sounds, the popping of the wood, the music from the streets drums in my 
I give into you 
You are floored by me 
And the steam from our love makes the candles sweat
As we lay there panting like the haunter and its prey both staring at that red accented wall
I turn to you with love in my smile 
and then I close my eyes
and when I open them I find myself alone with only a memory of us in my empty apartment

    Victoria, what a beautiful and captivating name. This poem is sooo hot and very beautiful. The last three lines are so sad. The emotion of this poem warmed me. Take care, my hands are weak after reading your words. Jancarl

    Damn Victoria...this was powerful but, for me, sadly familiar. I'm glad it's just a memory now, though. You poured it strong here. Great job!
