Healthy Appetite

Healthy Appetite

by Laura Summerville Reed


I have a greedy mind

I have a greedy body

Indulge me

Let me have too much

Speak with me of curious things

Then put your mouth on mine

Dance your tongue inside

Fill me up and taste me

Touch me


I don’t need to hear it all

Just enough that I’m intrigued

Come feed me clever phrases

Les bon mots, Mon amant

I want pictures in my mind

I’m a kaleidoscope of color

Use my body for your canvas

Paint me with your tongue

And touch me


I have a hungry mind

I have a hungry body

There’s a thirst for words

Inside my head

And a craving in my flesh

Feed them

Sate this healthy appetite

Haha! I think his imagination has gone far beyond any steam this little engine has cranked out, LMAO! Thank you, Laurel, for saying it's gorgeous (that's one of my particularly, favorite words.)

I saw my brother Micky Dee in your fan's circle,he is not around now,on the hills riding his bicycle but he likes hungry mind so i wish to say great hub on his behalf.I like the 2nd paragraph a great deal b/cos it reflects in other aspects of life.

Yes, Micky Dee does love his bike and he's quite encouraging with his thoughtful comments. I'm glad you liked my bon mots, lol.

Come my lovely penguin to the oyster shell, the wine!

We’ll listen to the roaring rhythm of waves from Blue Ocean

Pounding on these shores with sexy foam upon the sand.

I will caress you softly dearest as none other can.

Haha! Let me just grab my shampoo! Did you hit the "up" icon or "down" on this one, my dear man?I've had it in my locket for awhile now, just had to white out a few "To Whom it May Concerns", LMAO!

That is a quote from my 'Walrus and the Penguin' poem. I see your score is very nice, you are doing well. It is getting warm now so you must come lie 'naked in the grass' wi' me. I cannot keep from plugging my hubs, bad Charlie. LOL

Yes, I remember and that's a reference to my comment on 'Walrus and Penguin', I recall how that dinner and a movie ends, lol...Bless her trusting, little, thirsty heart.


ralwus 6 years ago

LOL but did you read the Naked one? Just another reason I chose ralwus, I am what I am, unique I suppose. I don't know if that's good or bad so I am not boasting. Now I have a feeling for something really daring about sperm. . . I must be careful, but you shall see later what I mean. I was dreaming again. LOL

I was just reading it now. I let that gorgeous Devil Orb kiss my cheeks today, but I'm afraid it was just the upper pair.

Laura...those embers still got a lot of fire in them! Now it looks like you're the one keepin' me awake! Go write a sad little crime story and give us some relief! LOL

Oh, dear Wayne, it would still be a tale of crimes of the heart and I'm afraid I'd have to pepper it liberally with plenty of drawn shades and entangled bodies. But I don't write stories, ahh, well.

Sounds like a script waiting to be acted out. Very good.

Is it the sitcom you spoke of earlier? - I've got it - Moonlight phlebotomist finds true love in ICC ward while reading prosaic poetry to amnesia patient in full body cast, who turns out to be gorgeous millionaire!
