Speak To Me


Without your words,
Your palms are claws
Tracing a path of pain
On my tense skin,
Without a sound,
I am unsure
If this is heartfelt,
Or mere couplings,
Occasioned by excesses
Of fluid,
In your silence,
My heart is cold
And my juices
Become grit,
Without a whisper in my ear
Insecurities reign
Dancing through my thoughts–
crazy children in the rain,
And I lie there like a log
lifeless and limp.

Speak to me
My beloved
Tell me of your longing
Reaffirm your love
Soothe me with soft singing,
Whisper sweet nothings in my ear
Serenade me with your loving,
Mummur your passion aloud,
Call me the names of our vows,
Wrap me in your words,
In a cloak, of warmth and wantonness
Let your tongue
Be salve to me
A balm of tender healing
Intoxicate me with your words
As one drunk with fine wine,
Make fire from my ice
Set the log aflame.

Susurrate me with
Your praise.
Awaken the lover in me,
Then together we
Will ride passion’s waves
Unified in an ageless rhythm,
Entwined as salt in sea,
Assuaging the storm of need
Ectasy trebbled in mutuality,
Til we lie spent on its shores




yet longing
For more.

    This was exquisitely beautiful… so much so that I was overpowered by a compusion to donate 30 points to you.

    Please don’t keep on writing these kinds of poems unless you want to bankrupt me and reduce me to the level of ‘Newbie’.

    Well done.

    Mummur should be Murmur.
    Susurate implies whispering or whispers. The line it is used in should be looked at. It does sound nice to the ears though.

    Bien escrito. Bien hecho…$ß.
