drunk on sun

You thought I'd been drinking,

but I don't recall alcohol,

just sky, sand, fucking you,

drunk on sun.


Drifting through the heat haze,

white-hot, your breath.

My seared skin soothed by your soft touch.

You; warm, laughing laughing.


Sandy smooth, salted wounds 


Gentle fingers trace down one side

& my heart washing away with the tide.


A kind of rush;

the sound of the waves &

the sweet music you make 

bounded in my seashell.


If I raise it up to my ear 

I can hear

      immersive, to say the least
      heated: pulsation, within words of magnetic attraction!
      a good read, (and thanks for inspiring my little scribbled reply)..
      'ahem - well dear poet, this reads
      as one hell of a pulsating nightmare
      you've dreamed - as idyllic scenes of poetry
      in reality, the Sand in our feelings
      trespass into every nut and cranny
      insuring, we seldom get a chance
      to accumulate, such pristine memories
      of unscathed: bliss...'

        I love that: 'the sand in our feelings' - a recurring theme in my poems I think. I'm glad for inspiring the continual flow of words. Although they may be poor tools sometimes, they remain tiny acts of rebellion against the meaninglessness of existence & us connect
