A WOMAN'S b. Malin

Photo by Stephan

What was I thinking about last night when my thoughts were running wildly in my brain?

And my fantasies were conjuring there as well...heating me to my very soul.

My brain and my passions danced together with such warmth and desire, the perfect duet.

As we lay so close together by the open fire.

You rubbing your beard in my hair, and telling me how good it smelled.

You seemed so content...I felt restless...though I swear I don't know why.

You laid your head upon my chest and your breathing soon became that of a man in deep slumber...

MY desires slowly ebbing away...making way for the sadness I felt entering me.

When you woke in the morning and found me gone...

What did you think?

What did you do?

I I sit on a bus going somewhere, will you even notice that I'm gone?

Or will you just throw another log on the fire...and go back to sleep.

      I was once involved with an alcoholic woman. She passed out while we were having sex. Talk about turn-offs. I can relate all too well to this poem.

      I thoroughly enjoyed this. Yes, I agree with many of the is intriguing-questions unspoken, and the 'emptiness' speaks for itself. I think the picture is exactly the right one. Nice job.

      De-lovely, Thank you for liking my style, and you are so right, things left unsaid leave their mark.

      dianeaugust, the man is a mixture of men...maybe one who take his lady for granted, and she's had it...they are very different from one the end she knows she wants more.

      Your technique is getting very refined. I see that you have been working on it. This is a melancholic piece but few will resist such brandy to the soul. Well done my dear.

      b.Malin--I like your words and the picture they provide. It is what is NOT said that intrigues me as a reader almost as much as what is said--which is a marvelous technique. I wonder about you, the man, the reason, the place, the fulfillment or lack of, and the absence. Much to be said about absence. Wonderful! DA
