Nipped in the bud


Nose to nose and holding gaze

The lights and music low

Hands cup my face; I hold you close

Heart/time dance quick-quick s l o w

I hear your rapid, shuddered breaths

My fingers trace your nape and spine

We yearn to meld; such sweet duress

I close my eyes – pretend you’re mine

“Just one kiss”, I hear you plead

My chest ignites to molten fire

Time stops; blood rages primal speed

Temptation blinds with razor wire

“I can’t”, I whisper, trembling, small

World falls back. Agony. We’re done.

You were fantasy, my love, my all;

Darling, I could never stop at one.

  10. […] OH! I edumacated Joy-to-my-world about poetry. She claims not to have enjoyed it in the past, which I took as a bit of a personal challenge, so I made it my mission to write a poem which she both enjoyed AND understood. She NAILED IT! This one’s ALL ABOUT potato chips…right?! […]
