Treasure Island

Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy

(5 September 1817 - 10 October 1875 / Saint Petersburg)

Do Not Believe


Do not believe, my dearest, when I say
That I no longer love you.
When the tide ebbs do not believe the sea -
It will return anew.

Already I long for you, and passion fills me,
I yield my freedom thus to you once more.
Already the waves return with shouts and glee
To fill again that same belovèd shore.

    Unbound For MR
    In your homeland
    winter lingers
    passion runs on sleighs

    Your language
    cuts as skates on ice
    unheard passion pulses

    Into my wanting
    your long arms reach
    into heated desire
    your fingers probe


    Taken to the zenith
    before the posted boundaries
    passing known pleasures
    we explore

    My body, the vehicle
    taken by your desire
    handled willfully
    mastered, I open

    Waiting for the nectar
    the next encounter
    I dream the possibilites (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
