Always on My Mind you baby...

The superhero
ruling in her fairytale
is the deified pharaoh
Who is savagely astonished
with his silence
Between two words
He plants his dots
in her land of thirst
His sharpened swords
are lethal drops
updated boards
of legalized shots
a little bit of sadism he is
painfully tempting
lovingly hurting
so right
as her black and white
too charmed
That she never asked
why is he like that
how can this wild seduction be kind
Resetting their damaged dreams on rewind
she just wanted to ask him
how he was..
but he knew,and Stole her question
in a sneaking in redemption
Between two hesitating smiles
wrapping the question around his neck
back to his silence
inspecting his elegance
with a sighing sentence
questions are mostly a decent trap
to which we drag the others to a more complicated state
Refilled with honest resistance
To the truth
One day he said,
"Don't ask
just know...
I smile the truth"
that day she learned her lesson well
she knew she was all he has to tell
tried to invent a new language for him
one without question marks
expecting only answers to design her own
only then she would add the question marks
or even exclamation ones
that would mainly turn into
admiration lines of full stops.
He never said anything
Except one of his definite words
She didn’t understand how
Only silence between two words
Can make that effect on her chaos
How can that desire be inflamed ?
With an exhausted look that lazily climbed
Her murmuring flesh
incensed and fresh
Turning wherever it passes her fire on
With one word she puts it all back in place
She knows that love doesn’t think
Has no memory
It doesn’t benefit from it's earlier stupidity
Not even from those tiny disappointments
That once created its major sadness
Despite of it all
She forgave him, happy with her defeat
Inspected at his feet
Like a shaking sparrow
In a rainy winter night.

"To the truth
One day he said,
"Don't ask

I smile the truth"

Beautiful lines you got me there...

Darling his vows were right there for you sip them deep inside. Yet truth be told he's painfully tempting, legally lethal and so lovingly hurting but he never forgets how to satisfy his lovers, he does it so well we're hooked. We don't need words just his silent mourns define everything in his queens, will do my best to be back and promise xoxo~

Tantalizing this man who bruises her soul. He doesn't need to say a word he trapped her without it.

Bill Cook said...

Love the rhythm and flow of the narrative. I'm not sure if I find the hero attractive or fearful. You've successfully generated that tension. - Bill

KB said...

This is a wonderful write. Thanks for visiting mine earlier.

Wonderfully writ! Fine rhythm, combined with a story that just flows effortlessly. Good, good stuff.

Fear this creature called hero...

Dear Desert Rose, I come back to your blog, really thirsty for your satiny words. And I am now satiated until the next post.

At the end of the day, it is words of love and the sensual that move us the most.

For is it not true that all the other beings envy us this the most?

buttercup said...

We all need our moments of silence.. but sometimes, even those are meant to shared with another...
Poor lady.. all she knew was her love for him.. what he gave or took from her in return, was something she never really bothered herself with.. wow! That's unconditional love.. but is there really such a thing? Or was she too tired in the end? I guess I will never know for sure..

Such an amazingly well written poem, Desert Rose.. Hats off to you!!!

Stellar. Just stellar.

She aches to fall on the sword of his fierce presence.

I loved that part about the stealing of a question. I can just feel the vacuum left in its place...
