“WOW*” – remonstrate – free verse – May 30, 2015



Long Distance Passion

just empty words without form
empty without life
like a poem without rhyme
you remonstrate and say to me …

but these words are very real
imagination’s blooming flower
born in this dark midnight hour
these words that  fill my empty soul
reminding me of other times
of passion and desire

they set my body and life on fire
ah – the beauty of his sweet caress
(as he runs his finger down my breast)
what if only vicariously
I have him and he has me

your remonstrating can ever change
what I feel for him today
he fills my needs he is my love
he lives here with me – inside my soul
though our lips have never met.
