Daily missive for Monday the 2nd of January.~by Peter Forster


 

 

Daily missive for Monday the 2nd of January.

Hot touch
Burn me with your fingers
Trace my fear
Dig it out
Pain is ecstasy
When it is a sharp bite
Brush me
Just a moment
Let it linger
In my mind
This is life
But it will be
The death of me.
Passion
Is a diamond tipped
Heart breaker
It rakes my skin
Holding me
In its claws.
A bird of paradise
With a rattlesnake head.
Sweet music plays
Mesmeric tails
Hold me in their sway
It is a disconnect
Making the mundane
Become larger in life
Than in dreams.
One step from delusion
Bicycle illusions
Roll like a peloton
Across my toes
But the feeling is gone
No matter
The intensity of concentration
The passion dies
To a smoulder of older
Memories
That are the embers
Of all things
And sit together
For good or ill
Until a momentary awakening
Brings a burst
Of uncontainable flame
From the ashes
That burns with
The heat of passion
In a lick of fire
Its hotly tender touch
The spritely reunion
Of a true soul
Survivor.
