Abandon of Flesh

Abandon

How you wrap around

every thought and ache

sliding unsolicited

into places

I never knew existed

touching warm silence

awakening unread pages

strong hands

crying to read

every inch of my skin

for the first time

then over and over again

story touching your soul

and your mind

is lost

in the abandon of flesh

escaping into pleasures

the gods wished upon us

granting fantasy

to mortals

craving what no human

should have

  1. Beth, as always, beautiful and sensual words that seem to reach beyond the physical connection to some more inherent need – connection and recognition of a deeper hiddden part of our humanity. This lines strike me most:

    I never knew existed

    touching warm silence

    awakening unread pages

    But the whole thing, as always, just so beautiful.

    Thank you Barista!
