Rants, Raves, & Random Thoughts

Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Look, Lime it's new... :D

Tortured Hearts

Spinning, world on tilt
Ebb and flow collide

Laughter, taunting, teasing
The thrill of the chase
The thrill of the catch
Toture of restraint
Pleasure of release

Your love, your hate, your wonder, your eyes
Flashing memories, revisited sensations
The ghost of your touch haunts me
My hands on you, yours on me
Your scent fades, but lingers for eternity

Swaying with the wind
Your smile out of place
Your hand reaching
Mine accepts
You begin to dance

Planting seeds, sewing oats
Gardens of stone
Grey skies mourn
Averted eyes pretend I’m gone
I live on

The garden grows
No change of heart
You’ve given it to me
It’s in a jar
With the others
On my mantle

Spinning, world on tilt
Ebb and flow collide
The cycle is eternal
This is the calm
Before the hunt

Thanks, Lime. I was trying for something a little different here. Sounds like I might have been successful.

Did you notice that the words are formed in the shape of a knife?

i noticed the 'point' of each stanza but missed the overall knife shape. it gave the fabulous rhythm though. i really like it!

Thanks for reading my entry in the crabby cows :) I'm always curious to get a man's perspective.

I like the poem. Sexy, yet haunted and full of pain.

No, problem, Shelli. I enjoyed it.

Thanks for the compliments on my poem.
