Let Me Pass

Let Me Pass

~

If I see in your eyes

just a comfort of life

with no flame burning deep

let me pass,

let me be but a fool

seeking passion alive

in a look, on your lips

or a tender embrace

when the years that I lost

cannot easy replace

with a smile of content

in a lifelong impasse.

And I need not the ice

but the fire within

to light up what was turned

long ago into embers.

If I see in your eyes

not the fire but nice

let me pass-

It’s Not Love

Lust-1

It’s Not Love

~

It’s not love but lust

and the heat of her touch

that I miss, that I miss

under sheets left to dry

with no kiss, with no kiss.

And I search for the why

I was left with not much

if I tried, if I tried.

~

It’s not love but her skin

as it burned next to mine

that I wish, that I wish

and the heat of her touch

under sheets left so cold

that I miss, that I miss.

And I search in my mind

among memories old

if I tried, if I tried.

Hot Bread

~

If you touch softly certain parts of me

I’ll become butter melting on your fingers

the aroma of freshly baked bread that lingers

when we pass the counter at the store

but head for the salad instead-

But that touch I so much crave

makes my mouth water with anticipation

which I gracefully hide and behave

for a taste of such flavors misled

my dreams and desires before,

and although I crave much more

I won’t show my hesitation.
