I WOULD...IF I COULD

I WOULD...IF I COULD

A Poem by ReedWrite
"

A poem...who knew?

"


I would trail my words,

   Like gentle fingertips,

Along the flesh of your mind.

Feeling the shiver,

  Hearing the moan.

So intoxicatingly sublime.

 

I would taste your response,

   Like pearls on the tongue,

Rich beyond simple imagining.

Trembling with ardor,

   Gasping with need,

Every cell compelled to sing.

 

I would burn your soul,

   Living fire from within,

That sears you to your core.

Scorching inhibitions away,

   Melting reason and rhyme,

Bringing you ever back, for more.


I would...if I could...

This speaks of love on a whole other plane. (Not the mile-high knee-trembler in United Airlines toilet type of plane) .; p
The type of joining that is beyond the physical. Pure energies merging and being way more than the sum of them. Such a love - such a 'meeting' is forever burned into the psyche... regardless of whether any physical conjoining occurs.
This is brilliant ReedWrite

Imagination at the peak and for sure intoxicated spirits when they find each other replica of their own.

I would burn your soul,
Living fire from within,
That sears you to your core.

Interesting choice of words and expression. Very well written!

Well done, ReedWrite. It's a well known fact that the mind is the most active sex organ and the body the largest erogenous zone and your poem adroitly combined both. Good write

Thank you, Ted. Appreciate your words. Thanks for the read and review.
Because -- perhaps -- it is all over those things connecting at once?

Regardless, this is a very respectable piece. I am a fan of your work. Great flow & pace. You were able to pick it up after you halted it. Great rhyming. Great descriptions & meshing. Great imagery. Great concept.
You are a very well-rounded writer. I look forward to more.

Thank you so much. Appreciate the read and review.
Marvellous job. The body is only a small thing relative to what is within. And that which is within is the most astonishing thing in the universe.

Thank you so much R.J. I appreciate that you took time to read and comment!
Love this from beginning to end. What a wonderful thought the flesh of the mind is, that line alone gave me shivers. Your words here touch the part within that you speak of so eloquently, almost hypnotic , with a rich and decadent feel as the reader falls into your groove of thought, knowing that they might never return from that place that feels like home. Superbly captured.
