Read me slowly

Read me slowly

A Poem by Marianne

Turn

The pages

Life’s breath

Oxygen inhaled

Tear by tear

In black ink

Crimson splashes

Testimony to love

Won and lost

Inside a sea of glass

Shattered in hollow

Promises

Victory celebrations

Crossed with swords

Unsheathed

Capital letters

Written in stone

Vows sing

Melodies of hope

The circle of life

Under a turquoise

Sky

Your name in bold

Calligraphy

Inscribed on my soul

The feast in Paradise

Under a rainbow

The colours of my pen

Dipped in the palette

Scented with lust

Sprinkled with fairy dust

Fingertips dancing pirouettes

On light white flesh

Silken moments snatched

From sacred secrets born

Outside reason and time

Knowledge fastened to

Your slender neck

Clasped by kisses

Along your spine

The hidden curves my

Journey to your ecstasy

The future sealed in

Uncertain moans and sighs

Turn

The pages

Crowned with blessings

Beyond the horizon

Signed with love

The colour of blood

So many thoughts, observations and feelings, precisely put yet emotionally worded. I've missed your writing, Marianne.

wow, what wonderful metaphor---the sensual side of this, the emotional side of this..the relationship akin to me being a poem that i want you to read slowly and savor each word of me...each line...

slowly, slowly...and carefully...

terrific stuff..

Each line is filled with such a haunting presence... it felt timeless... extravagant... deep and dark and wild with wonder... and all painted in the color of crimson...
