Inhale sandalwood embers
Smoke seeps from the corners of her eyes
Drifts past her cheeks
Soot trails
Maps of tears

Wispy withering clouds
Caress then fall away
Skin bright
Dewdrops etched
Step out trailing vapor
Swirling ‘round ankles
Falling free

Cracked and fracture
Dropping pieces
Leaving behind crumbs
Glass shards
Finger prick
Bloody sliver melts
Gains wings
Flexes and flies away

Glitter floating
Showing where she’s been
Amongst the branches and bark
Petals and blades
Flittering fluttering
Landing to lap sweet nectar
Tongue delving deep within

Her thighs spread wide, wider
Beckoning the forest
Come fuck me
Leave behind
Your sugared seed
Bursting forth
New life orgasms

Gasping panting
Speeding toward the dirt
Oh! Oh! ooohhh!!! Fuck!
Galaxies spinning away
Crystals and glass

Begin again

Thanks for the encouragement, Anthony. I needed it. Well, that and the specially knitted cloud-bath and sandalwood candle.

Also, AP Christopher over at constant VARIABLE restructured this with rhyme and rhythm. I am so blown away. I think his (our?) version is better.

      1. Thanks for checking. My blog was shut down…I didn’t have it marked as mature. So, I have new site and wanted to invite you over. It is still within WP. If you do visit, I’d be interested to know if you can find a “follow” button anywhere.

        1. Michael. I was not able to find a “follow” button until I liked a post, when it asked me “follow this blog?” I looked in the app and on the web. Various places. Couldn’t find one. This must be very frustrating for you. I’m sorry about this!
