When It All Started (Spoken Word Poetry)

 

 

Your words…

Each luscious syllable,
Tasting of mandarin,
Citrus, exotic sweetness,
Tangerine brilliance,
Filling my eyes.

Each phrase,
Tawny hues of brandy,
Coating, smoothing, singeing,
Liquor’s legs lingering,
Creeping rivulets,
My throat begging for more.

Each sentence,
Scent of plumeria,
Tropical eroticism,
Commanding sensuality,
Expecting capitulation,
Coconut oil,
My body flooded,
Conceding.

You…

Beautiful,
Captivating,
Evocative…

Unrelenting woman.

I’m lost in you.

Never,
Never,
Let the world find me.

With your words…

Your sensual words,

That’s when it all started.

That’s when I started loving you.

  4. Absolutely gorgeous poetry. I expect nothing less from you. But still, this is completely captivating. I was swept away by your words. (This, this right here, is why I want a poet to fall in love with me – lol)
