Abs to Heart


You said
'I have not felt
anything
for some time now
and I have placed there
instead
my fantasies
in the gap
between
what I get
and what I need;
I am looking for someone
who does not have to be told this;
I am looking for someone
who can sense this
and place me against the wall
of my own indifference
face placed against the mirror
and show me
how much
I am needed.
I can't bear
not being needed
I need
that loud music
that loud cry
which is my own voice
responding to you
to your gathering
wish
as I pretend
to coyness
as I plot
allowing this.

If thrill
is Yin and Yang
move and parry
flirting
and message smiles sent
then abs to heart
we fit.
I am no longer Princess
I am woman
full blown
with blood red
senses.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
