Daily Prompt: Anticipate

Time seemed to have stilled and
Rendered them motionless, except
Her quickened breathing and
Pounding heart; she could feel
His gaze on her, and she hung

Half fearful

Half yearning

On it.

I still feel for you;
But the question is, what is
It that I now feel?

Sonnet

I hate you.

I hate you for breaking down that
Dam that I had carefully built to
Hold back all those emotions that
Were – are – not needed.

I hate you for making me promise to
Love you always, if God so ordains
To hold me – who has difficulty
Keeping even promises to myself –
To that promise I made for the
Love I have for you, no less.

I hate you for realising the
Impossibility of us finally, then
Leave me in the lurch of our devices
Drowning in all this love gushing
Blood-red, out of my veins.

I hate you for saying I shouldn’t
Be feeling this way, that I should have
A hold over this cuz you told me so
Because one cannot love to order.

I hate you for falling for another
Because you cannot fall for me
Because it hurts so much when
I am loving you still with a
Selfish, possessive love, for I am
Only human and incapable yet of
Unconditionally loving.

I hate you for this situation we are in
This “I don’t know what you are
To me” mode where I am living in
Limbo between feeling and unfeeling
Hold back and show, life and death.

I hate you for still having a hold
Over me, that despite everything
I can no longer leave you, God knows
How hard I tried and I hate myself
For feeling that way because hey,
I want to love you always right?

I hate you.

Writing

Sort of.😆

Writing is like jizzing;
When it comes it
Explodes uncontrollably
Torrential gushes of glory
Till orgasmic waves subside
With the last drop of poetry.

Daily Prompt: Lust

I want you to pull me into you
Urgently, your lips crashing against
Mine, fevered and desirous
They part to let you in –
Hot and wet, alive and furious
My senses mingle with the
Scent of you, primal and predatory
I want to be your prey.

Never Goodbye

Like any afternoon we would meet, I was in his room. He was draped in his chair across from me, a relaxed look on his face as I twirled a pen between my fingers.

“So… what was your very first impression of me?”

“Well… I thought you were so proper and good.”

“Really? Wow.”

He smiled, a little smug. I smiled back, then continued.

“But when I got to know you better, it all changed…”

My turn to grin as he looked slightly annoyed.

“…I found that you had your own wacky perspective of looking at things, were witty and best of all, you could catch my puns. I love that. I like when someone can go deep with me.”

Looking visibly pleased, he grinned back as me. Then, a thought crossed his mind.

“Remember when you got angry and almost walked out on me? I was so worried you would.”

“Ah yeah…” I furrowed my brows as I remembered. “…but you know I’d never do that.”

“I’m glad you didn’t.”

I took a breath.

“Out of all of them, you are the best.”

He looked at me, the slightest hint of sadness in his eyes.

“I guess this is the last time we’re gonna be here like this.”

“Yeah well… you gotta go.”

I felt a twinge in my heart.

“But hey, this is never really goodbye. I can always go meet you there, get a coffee or something. And there’s always Skype.”

He brightened up a little.

“Yeah, I guess that’s another way to look at it.”

I gave him a wink.

“So I’ll see you again.”

“Yeah, we’ll do just that.”

I had to smile. “Soon.”

Ethereal

Aurora-like skies
Ethereal the sunset flight
On Pegasus’ wings.
