Falling In Love Again
But since it's leaving, I have felt my heart harden a bit. I have tried to wise myself to the ways of this nether word we call the blogspere.I remind myself that Dumbo never needed that damned magic feather to fly in the first place.
Yet, Thursdays come, and I am compelled to read and write Poetry. I catch the scent of poetry in the air and turn, hoping to see all that IT meant to me, back. Smiling.
So when I heard of this new beginning, I decided that while "the first cut is the deepest, I'd try to love"..and write..again...
As with any new lover, some things are the same...but oh, how the differences make my breath catch, make my cheeks flush, make my mind go crazy in the possibility that THIS one may be THE one....
Check out their first prompt....impressive!
I wish I were close
To you as the wet skirt of
A salt girl to her body.
I think of you always.
'Salt girls' boil seawater down for the salt.
Was it just yesterday,the first
time I let you?(No, that is a lie.)
I WILLED you to unbutton my blouse.
I dared you,with one look,to slide
your hand up.Damn the torpedo's!
Damn those good girl brittle rules.
"Break me! Like my shell makes
no difference at all. Open me
like a egg, crack me,wide."
Such a thin space
veiled with skin
between you and I.
So,it was, me waiting for
you,for your fingers to come.
For you, to pick that button.
Thanks and congrats to the proud parents on the birth of their new site.. She's a beauty...and thanks to Deb of Stoney Moss for the directions.
