Mango butterflies

It is in your actions, your words
Your backwards glance
In the moments of chance it manifests
Deep within a heaving breast, a sigh
dilating iris’ of the eye
a subtle arch of your lower back
a firmness rounding every thread
In heels tensing curving calves
Treading paths of silk, unsaid
One by one each step endured
Tacitly, your intensions heard
Helpless I transform, a vassal
Lured, my soul is not my own
Enticed, entranced, involved, in love
These feelings newly felt, unknown

In your absence, devoid of home
These feelings only just, unknown
silent, effortless, absent of touch
the pain unbearable, will I survive
to taste your lips and eat your words
and turn your curves in silky tango
exhaling moments deep, into your eyes
you're sweet… as mango butterflies
you're sweet as……

    Enticed, entranced, involved... Intense!

    Reminds me of a cherry being twisted into the knot with a tongue
    And someone is the lucky cherry...

    Much sensuous waiting. Illustrated well. Emotion less rather construction getting its superiority. So it can't be much intense by its passion. Nice post.

  • Yasmeen Khan (9/9/2013 10:59:00 PM)

    it's written passionately in a nice flow.
