Dying of Thirst

Dying of Thirst

A Poem by Kelly Scheppers

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.

I have missed you more than I can say - thank you for the smile!
are we ever fully satisfied with that given by another?
we are but living imperfection placing priorities ... wrong?

Just my take on a situation I hope I never experience - many thanks, abg!
Okay this is the ultimate metaphor.
Drink and quenching.
You deserve both.

...why thank you, Paul!
I enjoyed the metaphor here, but surely, she should be sought after more than a drink. More than a quench. Loved it Kelly.

I am so happy to have you here, David. Thank you for making my day!
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!
Fanning myself here...the passion, the longing, the urgency....WOW! Kelly, your poem is so very enticing. Lydi**

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.
