Appease My Mind

Appease My Mind

written by: Maria Dulce Leitão Reis


I woke up
To the panting sound
of your breath.

Why are you breathless
my sweet?

Calm down
I’m waiting for you
calm and serene.

I want as much as you
a kiss…
a hug
an atmosphere
tender and seductive
before we enter
in the jungle of our passion
and make love wildly
and continue
beyond the climax
until we cannot take it anymore!

Do not prolong my wait.

I’m thirsty for you
quench my thirst!

Come on… Fill my body
appease my mind!

Maria Dulce Leitao Reis

I was born in Portugal, in the centre of the country. I have two children. I’m retired. I worked in accountancy and I was Businesswoman of Restoration and Fashion. I am living in England since 2006. I am a co-author of 56 Anthologies of Poetry, Prose and Children's Stories and 7 solo books in Portuguese, translated to English. The dream of publishing solo became true. Reading, writing, sudoku, photography, gardening are some of the things I love most. I'm a lover of nature. I fight injustice, inequality, discrimination and violence in every way. I believe in love and peace, vehicles to make the world more balanced, more attractive, where everyone will live joyous and happy. Poetry is an amazing and wonderful force! And it is in this force that I seek the breath to move on and it gives me joy and serenity to live life with sweetness! Poetry is the soul and prolongs me in the dream and draws me closer to God! Poetry is the air I breathe! It is the sap that circulates in my veins and brings fire and passion to every corner of my being! Poetry is love! Poetry is life! Poetry is my bread and my stick!
