LOST


The twinkle of her eyes
Enslaved me in her yard
My ears tilt to her whispers
Neglecting the call from home

The thickness of her brow
Revealed patterns of love
And layers of hair
Dept of lust

It is the smell of her hair
The twist of her waist
The gloss on her lips
And the stretch of her arms
Drawing me closer to her
Like a fish is drawn to a bait

Lost in the stands of her hair
Sinking in the tenderness of her skin
Trodden in history
Buried in leaves

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
