Neruda’s whispers

Neruda’s whispers

I want you here tonight, with eyes and hands
Ravenous, demanding to drink the silence of my inky curls.
I’ve given up every pale replacement, every word of hate,
I seek for the lagoon scent you left between satin and baldachin.

I ache for your lips leaving mine off-color,
Your smile – a beast cropping the armor inside my heart,
I void your fingers tracing the alabaster shadows of my skin,
I want you to inhale my name, to breathe me and let the violins play.

I have to elicit the colors of liquid sunshine when you speak,
Your untamed face when I hide my desires under a fake critique,
I long to feel you drain the winter out of my body,

And I’ve united vigor and passion against the dawn to come,
Following the rhythm of an ancient talisman to you,
A mistress of Cupid’s arrow, I dream to conquer your heart, tonight.

    Your words hold us under a spell

    Oooh … this is deep and sensuous … hints at intense , mindless passion with a “tall , dark & handsome man” .

    Love that last line! Actually, the whole piece was sooo passionate and romantic, just takes your breath away. I like Neruda’s style – I remember a poem he wrote about a panther and after reading it, I thought “Wow!” – glad he is inspiring you to such heights!

      One of my favorite from Neruda –

      “and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
      hunting for you, for your hot heart,
      Like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.”

      is this what you were talking about?

      Thanks Corina!

    Ohh la la, very sexy! I love it! I especially love the lines:

    I have to elicit the colors of liquid sunshine when you speak,
    Your untamed face when I hide my desires under a fake critique,
    I long to feel you drain the winter out of my body,

    So amazing!!
