Absinthe

For B–

 

absinthe2Just when I’d given up hope

Had all but packed my bags

Heading down the road to isolation

I encountered an unexpected surprise

Standing in the crossroads

 

Like a piece of broken sea glass

Long abandoned on the shore

You combed my beach and found me

Softening my jagged, broken edges

‘Til I shone like a prism reflecting your light

 

With unwitting ease you broke down my barriers

Infiltrated my electrified iron walls

Using the skill of a master locksmith

To break my heart’s combination

 

A prisoner in the past

Held hostage in a suit of armour

Rusty tears poured down my face

Cascading into vast deep seas

But you navigated my choppy waters

Like the most adept of seamen

 

The enveloping fog now lifted

Sun light peeks through my shadow’s shroud

Only you can traverse this wilderness

And explore my land full of wonder

 

With a match you ignited a spark

A flame fueled by your presence

Smoldering uncontrollably

Pleading to be stoked

Only you can extinguish this conflagration

 

Your touch on my skin

Makes me tingle inside

To see, feel, smell, and taste you

My senses on overload

This longing grows fervent

Your soul taunts my appetite

 

Your lips drink me in

Like a glass of exotic absinthe

Sweet anise lingers on your tongue

I share your every drop

To quench my insatiable thirst

And nourish my hungry soul

 

You enter my hidden spaces

Diving inside my warm caverns

Exploring my nooks and crannies

Ravishing me with tender kisses

 

Tongues twirling and dancing in a frenzy

Dangling on the edge of desire

You’re the harmony to my melody

Moving in unison as one and the same

Hearts pulsing in synchronized cadence

 

Midnight long sessions and lingering mornings

Bathed in each other’s scent

Soaking in passion’s dewy glow

Leave me out of breath wanting more
