Written by Katharine Hemingway
Your scent overwhelms me with irresistible power, forming clouds of dust in my lungs, opulence overtaking, gliding. Drenching Power, guiding perfumed hands wrench me into unknown realms and fantasies.
Twisting upwards, you lift me I watch your mist spiral, filling my air. To breathe it in is intoxicating. Weaving around my lips, to have the nectar you bring is to execute feelings of passion’s bare hands. I arrive, opinionated and clipped by the erosion of your touch. My fallen, wept wings, whispering softly…
Lighting your candle, oils of your essence drift slowly, fulfilling my desires. I become walls of secret, hidden chambers. Captured, I glide in vain. I wish never to escape this experience of you, as you bring me to recline my body and limbs.
You seem fragile and harmless, frail and fragmented. As you rise and move in smoky billows, adding clarity, I cannot hold. I cannot frame you with iron bars nor soft downy. Pillows, wake or stir you glowing inside me, I float. I am claimed through cinders of heady texture-less grain, captured by joy. Impregnated by sweet wishes wise, to be held and sensually taken, by gathered pearl eyes.
I am yours as you wait, rejoicing in faceless slivers of justice. Showering in pure tears, falling from white petals, touched and bound, pollen enchanted dripping with seed. Opening windows, you flow into the company of caught images. I’m drawn into encapsulations of glittering air sparks, as I forego my duties, lay down in snowy bed sheets.
I colour my future wishes of return, molded to you.
