Poetic Secrets

by LaVerne N. Curtis & Trina Williams-Emigh

The man who gave me everything I've ever wanted
Lives miles away
He looked past my masquerade
And saw who I really was
Although I was hidden behind metaphor
And encased in verse
Using words as my camouflage
I spoke without speaking
Yet he read in-between the lines
And discovered me there
Despite my whispering quietly...who I was
Somehow he heard me loud and clear
And exposed to me
My poetic secrets

Intellectual foreplay
Mental orgasms
That's what this man served me
His rhyme and reason 
Erotic at best
Poetically showering me with his knowledge and intent
I found myself locked inside his stanza
His words aroused my womanhood 
The distance too much to bear
I had to be touched by this man
If only for a minute
Feel the power of his strength wrapped in-between the lines
He loved me on purpose
And serenaded me hypnotically with his words
I found myself in a place of sheer ecstasy
Not knowing what to expect next
But he.....him......that man
Caressed my soul and got my juices flowing
Feeding my soul Divinely
Soothing the very depths of my flesh
And exposed to me
My poetic secrets
