i Want

i Want

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

“There is an ocean in the middle of the forest.” “Say what, now?” “An ocean! In the Forest, right in front of you! See? There’s a whale! A whale!” “Oh wow,”

i Want
i want your eyes to speak as
hands that grace lilting southern magnolias ...a
tensile tenuto .... a
leaving of finger tips  stars tracing
i want
hot cocoa and ground red pepper
your hair alive with
emeralds  streaming seaside pearls
that sacred place
i want 
breath to my life 
and drinking
each from one dawn to another
impaling our thoughts ..........a
soul quenching,  wanting  thirst 
i want you.

I really like the way you mix ideas here. The sensual alongside symbols of comfort. The emeralds and hot cocoa (albeit spicy :D). These juxtapositions speak to me of a greater depth than just a physical want. The soul wanting another soul intertwined with it perhaps.

Sometimes it’s not possible to get close enough. There are distances even in closeness that make it difficult to feel a complete sense of satisfaction.

But your poem reaches. That tenuto is inspired. What a lovely way of thinking about it. Musicality and stopping time to hold on. At least that’s how it shakes out in my head.

This is lovely work, E. Love and desire do create beautiful landscapes in the head-heart. When we step back and let them speak without fear.

I believe your final line sums the whole poem up perfectly here.....we can have all the material wants that our heart desires but it never compares to having that one special person beside us to share all of those desires with. This is quite a romantic poem, very visual and sensual and that accompanying picture just adds to the intrigue and sense of romanticism. Sometimes its the simple things that are all we need. Fine expression here, dear E! Much enjoyed! :))

goodness, this is exquisite, I can actually feel the tug in this desire filled decadent long tall drink, where are there any pieces in this puzzle? I usually have to think on it for a bit, I did have to look up tensile tenuto , love how you used that , and the "chocolat" recipe for desire and it delivers a straight forward
tense long note of wanting, just beautiful, love the photo

This poem speaks not only to want but the want of a mature man who has known true love and intimacy. I’ve seen how we evolve as we age. The want of physical love remains (ground red pepper) but sharing something deeper, the merger of two souls is the essence of love, and that’s what I read here. I enjoyed the image and music, too. I studied the image for several minutes, and I’m not sure if we see the same. I see an imaginative mind, one that not only imagines and creates poetry but love and magic from history and memories.

You’re welcome. I always look forward to your new work. A true pleasure.
I love the combinations, the dichotomies in this love song. They go beyond mere passion and into something much deeper and dare I say it adult.
This feels, as I say, like a love song but one from afar. To another who is not there in the flesh as it were.
I could be way off beam however but I do like it. A lot.
