“Say It With A Kiss”   Billie Holiday

lyrics:

Let me hear you say it
Say it with a kiss
It you mean that look I’ve seen
Say it with a kiss
There is wine and candle shine
And music in your lips
Music in the tops
Of your fingertips

Words may not convey it
Say it with a kiss
And your look might speak a book
That my eyes might miss
You don’t have to know the words
To love’s familiar tune
Say it with a kiss
And say it soon

autumn memories

timid waves inching forward

as we fell in love

shy beginnings of  our lust

tender kisses on the beach

ϿϾ

water on warm sand

cool air around fervant need

our desire building

summer’s exit unnoticed

love’s flames all that we could see

ϿϾ

walking hand-in-hand

in the sunset of  our lives

autumn memories

wishing we could turn back time

start the journey once again

this is my attempt at  Man’yoshu Japanese Poetry  ~  Somon:  mutual exchanges of love or longing poetry;  tanka:  (5-7-5-7-7)   i wrote this as a love song between a man and a woman  { though it would apply to any couple,  no matter their gender }  the lines in italics are her speaking and the plain text lines are him speaking

·Ꮫ· say you will ·Ꮫ· {redux}

 

come

slake your thirst

drink my ambrosia

come

feed your hunger

partake of me

all i ask in return

is to do the same to you

my thirst is

unquenchable

my hunger

knows no bounds

come

just let go

lose all control

let your desires reign

fires of passion

unlike any you have known

pleasure on the verge of pain

will lead you

to ecstasy beyond imagination

come to me

and you will never need

come to me

and you will never leave

“Say You Will”    Kanye West

my poem is inspired by the song,    “Say You Will”  by Kanye West.  particularly these lines ~

“When I grab your neck
 I touch your soul.
 Take off  your cool
 Then lose control.”

baby did a bad thing {redux}

.

.

i knew she was gonna break my heart

but once i touched her

there wasn’t a fuckin’ thing i could do about it

.

she took my heart between her teeth

and shook her head back and forth

like a dog with a bone

.

only i was the one

slavering at her feet

willing to do anything….

a. n. y. thing.  she wanted….

to convince her of  my undying love

.

all in the split-second

of  eternity

that it took to touch her arm

.

but she spit out my heart

whispered  “maybe another day”

and walked away

.

then baby did a bad, bad thing

.

.

i wasn’t enough….

she wanted the adoration

of  every man in the bar

and was willing to do

what they wanted to get it

.

i felt like cryin’

knowing she’d go that low

for a standing ovation

.

i lit a cigarette

caught her eye

then turned and walked away

.

i knew i’d find true love again

somewhere else….

another day

</3
