Guest Poet – Freckles of Fire

frecklekiss

An anonymous fellow poet shared his sexy work with me a few weeks ago; I’m thrilled to share his words here.

Sunbeams have touched
Where my lips desire
And left their marks
For me to pyre

Connecting the dots
In a lover’s game
Freckles of fire
Calling my name.

I kiss you here
And kiss you there
The lustful sun
Has shown me where

Funny how spots
Made from a star
Makes me wander
And go so afar

Guest Poet

Businessman writing in an accounting ledger

One of my long distance lovers has taken to writing poetry, in an effort to connect with me. He’s a math-brained, smart and nerdy kind of fellow — which I find incredibly sexy –and I adore him very much. I’ve previously featured his work here, and here.

I am intrigued by the way he approaches poetic forms, first the shardorma, fitting syllables into structured lines with care. I’ve been sending him new forms to try, like the tanka and the cinquain. He recently told me he’s come up with his own formula, and likes it very much.

There are five lines per stanza, with a break-line between each stanza. Not only can you read straight through, but each line of a stanza also forms a stanza for a secondary poem when combined with the corresponding lines of the stanzas that follow — first lines of each stanza are combined, as are lines two, three, four and five, to form a separate poem:

Two of his examples are featured here, in a form I’ll call accountant-poetry:

POEM 1

You see
kind and loving,
handsome blue-eyed mann
noble, strong, protective and smart —
your love.

Every facet is me.

I see
mediocre,
average man,
polyamourous and rebuilding —
a man.

Every facet is me.

They see
adulterer,
bearded wife-betrayer,
unjust, weak, neglectful and rash —
a fool.

SECONDARY POEM:

you see
I see
they see

kind and loving
mediocre
adulterer

handsome blue-eyed man
average man
bearded wife betrayer

noble, strong, protective and smart
polyamourous and rebuilding
unjust, weak, neglectful and rash

your love
a man
a fool

every facet is me
every facet is me

POEM 2

yes Sir
gift of service
to give of body, mind, soul
a longing to be of service
good girl.

Service is the strength to surrender but not be lost to another.

my girl
need and want meet
to focus loves and lusts
we share the two sides of a coin
I lead

Leadership is bending one’s wants to another’s boundary.

collar
want obedience
to protect and nurture
a need to be followed
Sir’s pride

He Wants to Speak Poet

 

Microphone

Sometimes a poet girl is lucky enough to find a lover who wants to share poetry with her. I’ve been lucky, more than once. This week, a lover I’ve known for a very long time chose to write me two poems.  A math-brained man, with very sexy intelligence, he took a risk, chose the Shardorma form, and jumped into the unknown, all to speak my language. The results left my heart full, and my mouth empty, with no words to describe the gift I’ve been given.

Every girl should feel so celebrated:

 

 

surprise kiss
the curve of her neck
sun kissed
inked skin
passion of word within her
lust after touching

———-

fire inside
to touch a stranger
bold hunger
new delight
embraced burning passion
flying above the sky
