Falling In Lust

It's a primal response, lust. Who amongst us can say they've never indulged in a five minute fantasy when this particular emotion comes calling?  I have such moments and with no intention of following through, I allow my mind to go a' wandering.


My Mind Goes A'  Wandering



Across the space
                                                                              you sit
spread kneed, jeans pulled tight
into vectored angles.

Fingertipped
my eyes explore the denim 
worn in all the right place and
my mind goes a'wandering
                                                                             down
zippered paths whose teath
feel cold against mine.

Your tongue
forms questions
                                                                           and mine
responds in answeres innocent.

We talk
of things past and present,
then you lean back
                                                                        hands behind head
and my mind goes a'wandering
through a tangle of sheets, of hair
                                                                          of limbs
sweat soaked, entwined.

Reality, rent
                                                                         repaired.
I return to tenses present
and from behind veiled eyes say
goodbye

  1. i couldn't grasp the full meaning of your work there but what i could get was enough to make me understand the basic message and i guess i can see what you are trying to convey, and i guess its true. Lust is within us all, no matter how we may try to cover it up.

  5. @Anonymous, I love that, anonymous is your profile name. Very cheeky.
    @Mynx thank you. I hope the temp's have come down for you over there. And no more spiders in the shed.

    @Socom It's good to have you back. Jesus you're lucky that you didn't lose any spinal function. You'll have to start writing things down on post-its for awhile I think. Be well!

  6. Wow Anne, I'm pretty surprised to see you posting poetry a lot more but I'm not complaining at all, you have a wonderful way with lyrics. Just like Anonymouse I'm hoping for a lot more blogs with poetry in it, this is amazingly beautiful, I love it.

  8. Oh what are we to do, the poet is surely flowing out of you. Very true as well, we've all had that kind of hmmm experience, unfortantley many are short sighted and act on it, then whine and complain when everything goes down the crapper.

  12. @Pat I'm reading you and Brian and am getting inspired to write again. It's been years. The only time I've ever acted on it was with Hubby and that's lasted 22 years.

    @B thank you.

    @Barfly glad to be of service to ya. Did you get my comment about tagging you later this week for a blog?

    @Workingdan, haha, I have magical powers. On another note though, how are you doing? I've been thinking about you and hope to see you post something soon.

  13. oh, somebody really should smooch me right now... the French way off course!

  14. I did Anne, and I appreciate that. I'm not sure what to look for, so if I don't react it's because I'm ignorant (ignernt in the south) .

    Did you ever get my tweet the other day?

    ReplyDelete
  15. umm my profile name isnt anonymous its Annoymouse which is a bit hard to explain why but, what the heck. Can you please send me a link to that video you posted? I'm interested in hearing it :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Dez I'll send you a tweet in French. Will that help?

    @Barfly I'm planning it for Wednesday and it will have your name on it. You won't miss it, ya Southern bastard ya.

    @annoymouse, so it is. My brain saw the first part and autofilled in the rest. I'll give you the link on your page.

  18. I'm not 100% sure if the visual layout was done on purpose, but it works so well. The rest of it though, it makes my wandering moments seem more poetic than I would've thought them to be. Very nice.

  19. Lol too many times.
    My mind goes a wanderin

  20. "I return to tenses present", great metaphor!
    nice writing, as always :D

    ReplyDelete
  21. @Bart I know. Two eyes are so 2011. Completely out of fashion. I'm having one of mine removed.

    @D4 the layout was done as an homage to Octavio Paz, one of my favorite poets.

    @Punk I'm doing that post you tagged me for on Wednesday. I hope you like i!

    @Vulcan, thank you so much.

    @Steve, then I've done my job well. Get in that shower and cool down before ya blow a gasket (pun intended).

    @Baur now go tell the cat you said that. I mean it, go tell him. That's one of the nicest compliments I've ever gotten.

  37. I did experience a moment of lust once.
    Then they made me leave church.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Great poem Anne! Definitely rings true for me, esp. the ending.

    We've all been there, eh? I fantasize about other women a lot more than I should. i've thought about un-friending one of them on Facebook just so I wouldn't have to look at her. But I'm going to give self-control a try. :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh, I called someone else Anne on my blog in the comments, does that count as fantasizing????

    ReplyDelete
  40. Beautiful :) You just brightened my day :)
