Farewells to Lust


Your tender visage
Sculpted in brown sugar
Glowing like varnished mahogany
Softly anchored to my lap
On a meadow of dandelions

As I long to surrender
To the only home I know, your lips
Pulled by your subtle gravity
Summoned by your eyes
As my lips relinquish to subtle spasms
Grafting kisses on you tender skin

Your visage that pulled me like a lighthouse
And harbored me like a sanctuary
As my brown-eyed girl implores my touch
Blowing kisses in the serene wind

Oh how sweet is life
As a mellow mirth cements my soul
As we laze together on a quilt
On a midsummer morning

For lovers dwell in arcane abysses
As no two love stories are alike
For love is weaved by mortal hearts
Macerated with inner beauty
Liberated by physical touch

And ours is just that
A love story uniquely ours

Not just a quilt on the wild side
But each time
A memorable farewell to lust

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
