Friday 55-Skin Hunger



As the sun's first rays warm my face
I roll into your arms.
I feel your chest press my back,
your breath on my neck.
Your hand slides
from my hip
to cup my breast.I wriggle closer to you,
tangle my feet with yours.

The alarm jolts me.
I awake shivering...
alone.

This was very sensual.
You used to write these often.
I'm so glad you remembered how, although it's a bit sad....

Sad but lovely.

Suldog said...

Heck of a nice poem, even if a melancholy ending.

Craig said...

Nice poem; very evocative. But the ending is just too terribly sad; the communion isn't supposed to end empty. . .

Claudia said...

Soooo sad!

Wow.... do I relate....

Beautifully written.

Lulda Casadaga said...

Ah lovely, but sad too! Well, at least you didn't have a snake in your bed/dream like I had last nite!!

Stephanie said...

What a gift to have knowledge of such a love.... I've come back to this several times today to read again.... I once knew such a love...

Really beautiful!

Rob said...

While perhaps more subtle, stealthy, subliminal (not to be confused with "sub-Lime-inal"!), surreptitious, and slowly-presenting than the more conventional form of starvation, skin hunger is no less pervasive, pernicious, punishing, and (ultimately) lethal (to physical, mental, and emotional health)! I'm so sorry you're being deprived of such a basic human need and entitlement, Lady Lime! (Sighhhhh...>

Incredible poem!

Jericho said...

Whether writing of others' customs, presenting the mundane in an interesting way, writing of food or community, you always tug at some core we all can relate to. You're a wonderful writer, and this 55 cuts marrow-deep.

Jericho said...

...and you inspired me...

That had an unexpectedly sad ending.

Sometimes waking up is not so much fun...

I love the back hugging picture!

Jocelyn said...

Sounds like my twenties.

And my college years.

Ugh.

Sigh.

Beach Bum said...

Great post but a bummer...know the feeling.

tsduff said...

This was made even more poignant with the pictures you chose.

EmBee said...

Well this just makes me sad.... and a little horny.

Just wanted to let you know I'm back to blogging... It's taken me most of the day to get a post up so it's not like a duck to water thing, just in case you were wondering. :-)
