Band-Aid

Band-Aid

A Poem by AprilRN1210
"

little fixes are still fixes sometimes

"



“Love is something far more than desire for sexual intercourse; it is the principal means of escape from the loneliness which affects most men and women throughout the greater part of their lives.”

-Bertrand Russell






Let your fingers

slide through my hair

electrifying the spot that erases the day.

 

Let my lips

                 taste escape

as they sample the story of your soul.

 

Let your flames engulf the chill

              from my frigid tendencies

smoldering heat stealing our inhibitions.

 

Tangle my thoughts

    in pleasure

         towards tranquility….

 

 

……even if only temporary

A scribbling daydream of loving escape to come "home" to after rough day. A girl can dream.

What a lovely write! It was unusual to see a quotation at the beginning, but it added context to what you were saying. It did feel as if the last line did not convey the same "spirit" as the rest.....The preceding lines focused on a deeper intimacy, with the temporary nature of the last line pulling the carpet from underneath the reader, so to speak....:) If that was intentional, well, that surprise was done really well, though personally it felt as if it should have ended on a more positive note....:)

April, may your daydream come true... as for the poem, big SIGH... and wouldn't be really special if the closeness and emotion of love you describe is more than fleeting or temporary???? but where coming home is coming into warmth...

your poem reminded me of the Langston Hughes poem that goes:
"Bring me all of your dreams,
You dreamer,
Bring me all your
Heart melodies
That I may wrap them
In a blue cloud-cloth
Away from the too-rough fingers
Of the world."

I love the Russell quote, is that from the conquest of happiness? I also really enjoy the line electrifying the spot that erases the day. That really gave it a lovely pop. You don't need the large fonts at all, your words loom large enough on their own, but if you like them then you do you. thank you.

Love-making can be a tonic.
The dream can also be as good as the act.
Your poem sounds a bit like a prayer. I hope you found that tranquillity, even if only temporary.

Sampling the story of your soul...Now that is a line everyone reading this will wish they wrote.
A beautifully written piece, connecting future connections and longing for thoughts to be tangled, however briefly.
Superb.
