Island of One

Island of one
in a world of man
absent of all
nothing to land
my boat on
that travels from
far away times
searching for you
for solid ground
to settle my feet
in the sand of your heart
lie in the heat
of the sun of your soul
peel off my clothes
bury my mind
in your warm naked skin
that holds all of mine
with caresses of senses
that tickle my veins
sending shocks to my heart
leaving scars to say
that you’ve been here before
many times with your lore
of love that burns
all of my core
to smoldering ashes of lust
an ember sparked
sending fire back
to the start
where I launched this boat
searching for you
the island of one

to make it

island of two

  1. Very cool, Em. I love the way your poem starts in innocence with the launch of the boat and ends somewhere else, far from innocence, but with a reminder of the boat and the search and all that has transpired. There’s so much in here but the overriding feeling for me is of a deep passion burning brighter than all else… So damn good πŸ˜‰

    1. Wow, kind thoughts, thanks! Half the time I don’t know where I’m going until I get there…my subconscious is entertaining and never fails to surprise, I’m sure you can relate. πŸ™‚
