Love Poem


.


I wasted a poem on you


It was a baring love piece


One of my best, so I thought


.


Single red rose


Drooping in cracked vase


Under bare-bulb’s glare


On worn Formica table


Perfectly off-center


Wadded up napkin stop it rocking


.


Risked my pounding heart


My only gift of value


Exposed for you to hold


Immerse yourself in scarlet passion.


Admire it, caress it, keep it


In awed, astounded pleasure


.


Sorry I made you laugh


Between bites of cold, carryout Szechwan


Washed down with cheap, warm rosé


Never claimed riches, refined taste


Just a hope you’d understand


My tears, my fears, my whys…


.


Soft junkie’s whimpers dying for a fix


That’ll arrive far too late to stop the pain


Ended as quickly as her lingering scent


Barrel, carefully polished for this


Eventual singularity, momentary kiss


Erupted in impersonal oral orgasm


.


Slid from hard-backed wooden chair,


Slumped on graying linoleum


Fresh red paint, color of dying petals.

A fresh approach, and very moving expression of love!

I love the line "erupted in impersonal oral orgasm" -
big SIGH...and goodnight...great piece.

Caryn :O)
