Absinthe

written by: L.M. Giannone

@LISAGNO

 

Just when I’d given up hope
Had all but packed my bags
Heading down the road to isolation
I encountered an unexpected surprise
Standing in the crossroads

Like a piece of broken sea glass
Long abandoned on the shore
You combed my beach and found me
Softening my jagged, broken edges
‘Til I shone like a prism reflecting your light

With unwitting ease you broke down my barriers
Infiltrated my electrified iron walls
Using the skill of a master locksmith
To break my heart’s combination

A prisoner in the past
Held hostage in a suit of armour
Rusty tears poured down my face
Cascading into vast deep seas
But you navigated my choppy waters
Like the most adept of seamen

The enveloping fog now lifted

Sun light peeks through my shadow’s shroud
Only you can traverse this wilderness
And explore my land full of wonder

With a match you ignited a spark
A flame fueled by your presence
Smoldering uncontrollably
Pleading to be stoked
Only you can extinguish this conflagration

Your touch on my skin
Makes me tingle inside
To see, feel, smell, and taste you
My senses on overload
This longing grows fervent
Your soul taunts my appetite

Your lips drink me in
Like a glass of exotic absinthe
Sweet anise lingers on your tongue
I share your every drop
To quench my insatiable thirst
And nourish my hungry soul

You enter my hidden spaces
Diving inside my warm caverns
Exploring my nooks and crannies
Ravishing me with tender kisses

Tongues twirling and dancing in a frenzy
Dangling on the edge of desire
You’re the harmony to my melody
Moving in unison as one and the same
Hearts pulsing in synchronized cadence

Midnight long sessions and lingering mornings
Bathed in each other’s scent
Soaking in passion’s dewy glow
Leave me out of breath wanting more
