Nights while you sleep  my lips are so close I can draw your breath in like an infant at its mother’s breast. I  run my fingers down the curve of your spine leaning in to inhale your scent.  I have entered that golden part of you, immersed the sea that claimed me in oceans of fiery sunsets.  When our hearts grow mute we will know we we  have drifted too near the sun.

  1. The sun has been know to all melt what binds. From muted hearts to those who take to wings and end up in the sea, the sun laughs at mortals, even gods, who try to touch it. Beautiful poem, Holly. I love the innocence consumed by fiery passion.

          1. Your poetry is consistently fantastic. You weave words together so elegantly, evoking emotions, building beautiful, passionate imagery, often teasing eroticism, and leaving me in awe over your literary craftsmanship. So often I’m left speechless admiring the brilliance of your work.

          1. Pearls are quite special, more special than man denotes.
            They are the product of a living organism.
            How dare we pillage them for this bit of calcium.
            Nonetheless, pearls can be found, much like your beautiful words. ❦❦❦

          2. Why???
            My words may be clumsy.
            You & your poetry are found pearls. You should be filled with joy that your many strings of pearls are part of earth’s found beauties.
            Do you know how amazing beautiful you are? How your words rake the coals of life’s fires?
            I adore you! Feel wonderful!

          3. I cherish them! I believe that pearls, much like gold, are never passe, in the world of romance and treachery.
            Hey, we might be onto a story.
            Perhaps a romantic foil for PBH?
