what i wouldn't give
to have my body sink down
into yours, cocooned
in the tumultuous quicksand
of human flesh.

i have never been so moved
as by your touch, the slinking seeping
brush. the universe dispels
and in the absence of everything,
i am less alone
than i have ever been.
cut me slack, i can't remember the last time i wrote a poem. i should be working on NaNoWriMo but my head is currently broken.

way too early to be a midnight something but not really a real poem so it will have to do.

I rarely read poems here on DA, especially since English isn't my mother language. But I have to say I really like yours, the words have a beautiful harmony when reading them out loud.

I feel like this poem is everything my boyfriend has been trying to tell me about the way he feels when we make love, but doesn't have the words to say.

An unusual compliment, I suppose, but a compliment nonetheless. Thank you; I'm glad my poetry spoke to you.
