Through The Dust Of Destiny (Part III)

I learned to swim
the waves of love
through loss of self
writ by your touch.

This ocean lures
my longing soul
to drown itself
in sweetness deep.

My blood is yearning
to be crushed
within these walls
of gentle need.

My mouth will travel
to tasteful land until
it reaches a sunset strip
along the shore.

    Beautiful “collaborative poetic effort”… I love the first stanza… Thanks for sharing!

  2. The words alone are enough to make one look deep inside themselves. I am just getting into blogging about my past experiences. Your post has given me the confidence to express my feelings. Thanks for sharing.

    I like the rhythm and meaning coming together in these lines, real nice:

    My blood is yearning
    to be crushed
    within these walls
    of gentle need.

    Fantastic! I have to echo redgladiola’s words here and say that the last stanza is brilliant. Subtle, indeed, and so well written. Excellent work, you two!

    Love this: I learned to swim
    the waves of love
    through loss of self
    writ by your touch.
