It’s the Smoke in my Eyes that Makes Me (Shape poetry)

I want a symphony, play it for me
I want roses to make my day
I want everything come what may
I toss and I turn, night sweats in their turn stroke me gently
Each droplet a shiver, moist dreams my river sending you my way
I want tenderness, play me for you
I want longing to reach the length of you
I want everything come what may
The heat, exhausted sweats roll over us before touching
Explosions grip the flesh that is gripped by our flesh
I want this to never end, keep it for me
I don’t want morning to be the end, make it go away
I want everything always, come what may

But,
with
this passion,
I give to
you, a light,
a flame,
burning,
new.

Shadows dance
to hide heaving
breaths, shallow
thrusts, deepened
lust and hollow
trusts. They are
melded with intensity
in the naked embrace,
pinned against hopes,
face to face, then
thrown onto the wall
silhouetted in night’s
sweats and tears
and desires and it hears
soft moaning, growing
into explicit amber
reaching the heights
of the naked flame’s
want – it wants it all,

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
