Angela Davis

(1976 / USA)

Entranced


Unseen I stand alone
watching, waiting
silently worshiping
the goddess of my heart
She stands at the water's edge
her wet, nude, sleek form
gleaming in the silver moon's glow
The gentle swell of her hips
sweetly arched back
her confident stance
enhances her beauty
She pauses to shake
her dark mane
and I stand entranced
helpless to look away
Her gaze captures me
and I stand captivated
as she strolls my way
in her natural grace
Her lovely arched eyebrows
rise slightly in speculation
Dark doe like eyes meet mine
hypnotizing me
Her delicate features
belies her inner strength
I cannot resist
and match her every step
Her full lips slightly curve upwards
in her pleasure
and amusement at my plight
Finally I stand before her
I cannot move a single muscle
or speak a single word
All thought is lost to my mind
other than my goddess
Blessed I am
as she tenderly cups my cheek
Softly she speaks
'Have you no words for me? '
All reason has left me
in rapture
at the unspoken promise
held in her eyes
to take me to heaven
All I can say is
'My Love...'

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
