Post-Aubade

A Poem by Alessander

I want to be the bed covers
You wake to
That your restless limbs
Have smothered
That your emanating body
The fabric
You have tossed-and-turned in
8 hours hence
Imprinted with your scent

And the mouthwash
You gargle
To swoosh-and-splash
Along your tongue
To be in you
Like liquid ache
Sloshing
Waking


I want to be the fork
You pick your eggs with
My metallic spine
In your slight fingers
Your demure  hands
Scarred sustenance
Yolk sun

I want to be the comb
Tangled in your frizzy hair
Your wavy hair of smoke
And shadowed lakes
Soft as lint
Cascading

I want to be the cig
You light on the corner
To warm the brick morning
I want to hang on your quivering lips
Like an autumn leaf from a branch
I want you to inhale me
Let your body loose
Feel me utterly
Then exhale...

Let me evaporate
Into the nothingness I was
Before

You

This had me from the first line, so creative to use every-day objects no one thinks twice about, but you manage to make come to life so poignantly. Like other reviewers reading this caused my body twist and pulsate, especially in this stanza "I want to hang on your quivering lips
Like an autumn leaf from a branch
I want you to inhale me
And let your body loose
Feel me utterly
Then exhale..."

I don't think you can get any closer to person, I mean being their mouthwash!! :D

Utterly wonderful piece.

This piece is very well crafted. Normally I have criticisms, but I honestly do not with this piece. It feels very polished and finished. Well done.

Thxs, Gabrielle! Glad you found it worth reading.
I am beyond envious that someone has awoken this amount of passion within you.
There is no better feeling, is there?
This piece is an absolutely perfect product of that passion, I love it.
