Wrath Of Heat

I’ve been lucky enough to be approached by three different people and asked to collaborate with them. One is in progress, one is ready to be published, and this one was finished today. It’s been written with a very talented photographer and poet called Jo, and you should go visit her wonderful website for some amazing photography and beautiful words. Follow the link here. With this poem, blame me for the bad bits and applaud her for the good bits. Thanks.

Never so misunderstood
lost in their worlds,
it never should
have taken place,
that way. That night.
But tortured souls
gave up the fight.

Balancing lust and self imposed
obligation,
lost in the moment
when sense departs
in haste.
That night.
But actions wrong
still feel so right.

Those kisses though
Dance darkly still,
across my mind.
They always will.
Created music.
Poems penned.
We kissed as if
The world might end.

Remembered scent
of flushing skin
intoxicates.
Like honeyed sin.
Stories told.
Pictures shared.
We danced as though
forever paired.

We fought within the
tangled sheet,
our souls to join hell’s
wrath of heat
Goodbyes were said
amongst defeat.
Yet our bodies never
miss a beat.

      Thank you 🙂 I’m still not 100% sure that I’m good enough to collaborate – I’ll have to see how my other two are received. But thank you for the encouragement 🙂

      Not at all, I’ve said before these constructive comments are more than welcome. It did change rhythm, but as it was our first collaboration we went with it. 🙂
