You, knew me well

L. B. Mek


I think

I prefer, the peeling action over the actual consumption 

I murmur to an empty room, with belated realisation 


like with this gripped Tangerine

its skin - pressed tight, forcing me

to tear into it, with arrowed eyeteeth


slow and steady, a game of unravelling

in one continuous motion, revealing its juicy flesh

one tumbling spiral layer, at a time


did you - know, back then

and is that why, your little-black-dress 

with its distinct, golden side-zip

would be laid out, waiting 


basking, in that peeking moonlight 

whenever you felt, like we needed

to rekindle

our attractions, faltering furnace;


years later and I’m, still learning

why my loyal fingers fervently remember


right hand - purposeful

deliberately savouring - each

teeth element’s surrendered, (z)nip

sliding, caressing - flowing

over every hinted sway of seductive, curve


like a single bead of sweat’s teasing descent 

on a cool Winter evening’s, gooseflesh skin


left hand - resting

at that nerve ending, sweet-spot

where your beckoning waist, greets

those enticing hips, resonating

with your anticipation’s unbidden tremors 


just, as I deliver a suggestive gentle squeeze 

to coax free

our simultaneous sigh of breathless intoxication…

    Best be careful there, friend; for zip to lip often draws blood and a lasting painful warning. Awesome poem.

    • L. B. Mek

      spoken like one whose lived through it
      and survived...
      and as-ever, pain recognises pain
      not just in wincingly vivid imagery
      thank you for the empathy, dear poet
      I'll aspire to heed your wise words

    • sorenbarrett

      Your wording and gradual buildup was seductive and alluring. So tastefully written it was enticing and drew me in. Very nicely done.

        Be proud of this Mek, very proud indeed sir ...................... Neville

        • L. B. Mek

          'from your fingertips, to Poesy's ears'
          your kindness never fails to humble me
          dear Poet supreme!

          I agree with Neville - this is certainly one of your best and so readably penned it goes straight into my list of favourites with top marks my friend.

          • L. B. Mek

            wow! just awesome
            you've made my day, dear Fay
            thank you!

            As the flow goes, it’s immaculate. While reading my mind wandered off to many scenarios - a seduction of a female, or that of a string instrument

            • L. B. Mek

              ohhhhhhh, you clever Poet
              what a great layer of interpretive depth
              you've added to my humble scribble
              I thank you! with the utmost sincerity

            • Eugene S.

              Really like the tangerine allusion. Great poem!

              • L. B. Mek

                so glad you enjoyed this fruity read, kind Poet
                thank you!
                for the supportive words
                and encouraging gesture
