Embrace (Photo credit: aarmono)

I shudder within
Translucent skin
I tremble above
The sighs of love
In terror I turn
Unable to learn
I climax, I fall
Lost to it all

The moment I breathe
I’m starting to leave
With never a word
So much may be heard
In loveplay I lost
My soul to my cost
Do not bid me sigh
I’ll never reply

Just let me here burn
I’ll never return

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

    Shudder, tremble, sigh, climax, fall and that’s just the opening! What follows is mere smoldering (do you live near Pompeii?). You take this piece from paroxysms of passion to simmering sorrow quickly and concisely. It is all the more pointed in its construct of short lines and direct statements. Very well done Helen.

    If the cost is too high is it still worth it. You inspire with lovely words.

  8. Wow this is intense and sad and gorgeously written
