THE POETESS

For Chloe...


Her days consist of redefining cognition:
solitary - and she wouldn't have it another way
for she loathes distraction - she lies on her bed, curled
like a kitten, purring when the right words come.

Wanton, bare-breasted, feminine; she sculpts
fanciful images from abstract truths
that come across as alluring promises,
like ripe red apples from immoral blooms.

Her eyes twinkle with playful mischief
as stanza follows stanza across the screen,
hoping she'll be remembered after she's gone
as imagination's great interpreter...

but, too immersed in erotic metaphor, she eludes
the real, the solid, a lover's touch. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

  3. Absolutely amazing and beautiful writings my lovely soul sister.
    Your thoughts are pure poetry that comes from your heart and your soul. So deep inside you that I can feel the burst of energy as words spring like Old Faithful bursting forth to release pent-up energy.
    You are an amazing writer, my dear soul sister.

    Much Love Always ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

      Well, Saturday was something of a damp squib, wasn't it?!😝 But we did manage to get outside for a Sunday barbeque.
      Aren't the colours glorious this year?

      Have a lovely day!

  6. My sweet Ygraine,
    The lonely days with our distractions and the kitten, purring when the right words arrive, let her bare breasts breastfeed me with poetry, and then with her intimacy of ripe red apples.
    Our erotic metaphors take place, in the kisses we haven't yet given!
    Your text is very good.
    You always charm me!
    Many kisses!!! And keep taking care of your health.
