Dying of Thirst

Dying of Thirst

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

 photo rain_down_on_me_599x349 - Copy_zps2mc83qcf.jpg


Dying of thirst

 

 

His lips placidly conformed

to the bottle’s annular opening,

his thirst

momentarily quenched

as he grasped the curvature

of its tapered neck.

 

He consumed the malted liquor,

fervently licking the heady delight

repeatedly  from his lips.

 

Just once, she wished

he would take her

with the same

unchaste provocation…

 

her insatiable need,

momentarily quenched.

Well, here i am, sipping my coffee and you alter my plans for the day!

Kelly, me long time buddy, you so enjoy taking readers on a joy ride, don't you! Your words mesmerise with inferences, hints and naughty little nudges. Then, via their reactions, show folk exactly how THEIR minds are working! Brilliiantly sensuous steam... :))

Strangely enough, me too. Hope you are well Kelly
after much deliberation, my jury has come to the decision this is a very powerful poem. You are guilty on all accounts of displaying a poem with imagery, flow, finesse, style and sensuality. Beautiful stuff! I heard a joke along these lines of devotion and erotica towards his love only to find out it was the wine talking!!!:)

I tweak a lot of stuff before I post it. I think we all are our worst critics!

I do believe I am blushing - thank you so much, Lydi!
oh my .... that's one hell of a beer ma'am! what a pin head he didn't get the implications of his own satisfaction and deliver a little of that attention where her needs reside .... hers, is an eternal elixir no man should draw back from says i! ;)) love the theme, love the subtle sexy ..love the two characters so fully developed with so little hinting ... kind of sad the two of them sitting there ... side by side in completely different worlds :(

we all have our thirsts and ways of quenching. fires burn. perhaps a healthy compromise is in order - he has his beer and then she gets hers with equal gusto. powerfully provocative & suggestive Kelly.

I had an uncle who drank all the time. His wife left him because of it. It's sad when the thirsts .. read more

understood. everything in moderation.
The thirst for soul-fulfillment seems ever lingering. As his quench remains unfulfilled at the bottom of the bottom so does hers. Lonely is never so lonely as when felt and acknowledged. Lovely!

Thank you for your review, Linda. What a pleasure it is seeing you!
her insatiable need,
momentarily quenched.

Love these last lines a lot! Also like the contrast between the man and woman's needs. This was sensual to read 🙂

I'm so glad you enjoyed it, Tina...thank you!
Realistic and true words written. I believe when we forget the days of wild love and crazy needs. Leave our lover alone. We had failed our lover.
"Just once, she wished
he would take her
with the same
unchaste provocation…"
I understand the lines above. I'm guilty also. Love need constant attention to keep alive. Thank you Kelly for sharing the amazing poetry.
