Eros

Eros

A Poem by Sarah Conder

I welcomed you into my personal cosmos,

Beckoning to you with open, craving arms,

We glowed like moonlight, a pair of nocturnal lovers.

Consumed by longing for the touch of your velvet kisses

Against my pale, luminescent skin; delicate as the

Brush of a moth’s wing.

You traced a line along the contours of my body, painting me with your

Voracious artist’s eyes.

Your gentle words of admiration soothed my

Desirous, aching heart and enflamed my loins,

As we became a burning constellation, entwined

In our own clandestine universe.

Clandestine Universe, wicked line. your paring of words is amazing, you give them such meaning, I love reading the work of writers who understand the importance of diction or who make their poetry surround such tool in order to stand out and make it unique, rather than challenging the reader in a need to feel competent.

I too was enamored by these lines:

You traced a line along the contours of my body, painting me with your

Voracious artist’s eyes.

I was reminded of the Girl With The Pearl Earring. This is a very sensuous yet delicate piece. I liked this very much.
