Physical Love is Madness

Physical Love is Madness

A Poem by Annie Wilthew

Conflict between innocence and adolescence

Physical Love is madness.
Raging, frustrating, ricocheting
Irrational, forceful , inexorable
Piercing, frothing, pressing
Slough of Despondence; marsh, swamp
Swallowing me deeper.
Filling my mouth
Sludging, plastering into my lungs.
Sealing away air
Incarcerating sensations
Begging to be set loose
Pleading to fly over the swelling rush
Of passion and sensual touch
Sobbing for the playful nudge
Of Innocence and simple love.
Not this surly grime and filth
Of developed drives
For physical release

Author's Note

Aloha, this is one of the poems I wrote today... for some reason, I couldn't stop!

I tried to give a feeling of claustrophobia and helplessness. Let me know if I was successful in that. As always, please comment and speak your mind!
