Fever

 

 

I never forgot your smell,
or how soft your cheek was;
like tender coconut flesh.
How soft your cheek was,
when I dared to push my lips against it.

I never forgot how
my back pressed against the wall.
Green, cold, flaky paint.
I remember trying to remember the moment
the hot flush of love against the cold of the wall.
The memory lives, grows, sears.

It is a fever. You shudder, you sweat.
You want to lie down, you need to sit up.

Yes, a fever. A fire that’s burning me up.
A fire that won’t listen to reason.

I will be your phoenix, you can be my arsonist.

Scarlet lips to burn you, flushed cheeks to burn you.
Here, inside of me, is a living arsenal.

A veritable, flammable woman;
you will keep me alive with flames of longing.

That first spark has grown,
brighter now, bolder now.

Your lips are under my thumb:
trembling pink flesh. Now wet with wanting,
now parched in anticipation.

Fan my flames, for I need you, to make it through
this stark and lonely night.
Touch your tongue to mine, quench this longing.
Nay, stay away, lest all turn to ashes.

There is a desperation in this denial. A quiet hunger.
A spasming want.
I will wait. I will make you want me.

    I am very impressed, your romantic writing is incredible, unlike what you thought you wouldn’t understand my accent, For Your Information I don’t have an accent, you stole my heart, made me fall in love with you so deeply, my heart is crushed, Please tell me where we go from here, I need to know, silence is not the human who claimed so much love for me, would love to know before I go to the White House, this week.

    Your Blogs are great, beautigully written, if I didn’t read them I would have never known, from your seductive DM’s & Emails proclaming so much love & tenderness.

    By the way someone sent me DM about your Blogs! Thank You

    PS: I love you with all my heart & soul

    With Undinyiable Love
