trench warfare

between your subconscious and mine

during the night

over my head

love words like cannonballs have flown

at the edge of some imaginary bed

sensuality has wept in B major

caged like a bird

i choked on metaphors

strategies of conquest

swam inside your mind

like koi fish in a pond



i drink and burst to light

roses crawl around my body

scented by eight aromatic salts

the pages of your book

sit empty now

white orchids hanging in a tree

don’t cry

your book is the last place

in which you want to look for me

  1. Good morning G. I see someone is up way TOO early for a Sunday morning.
    Another wonderful poem with images and emotions so vivid and detailed.
    Lovely little rhyme in your delightful finale, too.

    Hope your weekend is going well. Have a gorgeous Sunday.
    Watch out for the cannonballs.

    1. Good morning Drew.
      Thank you so much for your wonderful words. Their beauty woke me up.
      I wasn’t 100% up. I never am at this hour. I get to 100% at 4pm 🙂

      I hope your weekend is going well too.
      Wishing you a day filled with love and magic!

      The cannonballs?
      I have metal bars set into heavy timber in my bedroom. I store them here LOL

      1. I thought it was interesting. I’m glad you think so too! LOL

        I hope your morning coffee was great. May the whisper of evening be even greater!

      2. I am glad to hear that the coffee and the readings were great.
        Can’t wait to see what’s cooking 😉
        Looking forward to reading your next post, Drew.!
