LIKE SPILLED BREW


LIKE SPILLED BREW

S.JENSEN ©2018

SO VERY DEEP ALIVE

WITH RICH AND EXQUISITELY LONG

DARK LASHES

WENT A SHADE PALER

BEEN SLEEPING NAKED

IN THE DRIPPING HEAT

THE BATTLE SCARS

WORN UPON THE SHOULDERS

VISIBLE YET NO LONGER 

ALARMING

FINE FLURRY OF FRECKLES

IRISH BLOOD AND NORSE NAMED

A FORCE NO ONE SHOULD

WANT TO RECKON WITH

SET OUT THE GOLDEN CHALICE

DRINK THE COLD MEAD

TO TAME THE TRENCHES

OF HUNGER

TOSSING A LOCK OF

PALE ASHEN GOLD HAIR

TO THE SIDE

AS AGE HAS THINNED IT

AND OH SO WALKED

TEMPTATION THE STRANGE

TREMOR FELL UPON HER

OH TROUBLE ALWAYS BREWS

FROM BLOOD SPOKEN WORDS

SHEER EXHAUSTION

TO RETREAT TO BE PRIVATE

IN THE FUTURE

THE FINAL STRAW

NO WORDS TO BE SAID

IGNORING HER SHRIEK

OF RAGE

FEW FEET OF HALLWAY

OH SO EXPECTED

TO JUST TOLERATE

THE BEHAVIOR

TO ENRAGE

EVER SO PATIENT

ITS JUST NOT TO BE

CONSIDERED

DANGEROUS IN HER PASSION

FINGERS FLEXED AND UNFLEXED

THE MOMENT HAS COME

VIOLET EYES AND EBONY MASS

IN A HANDFUL OF HAIR

GENTLE TUG FOR THE SO CALLED

FAKE IS DEEP DESIRE

THE LONE WOLF

INCREDIBLE INSAITABLE PULSE

DRIVES THIS HEART

SHE TURNED QUICKLY TO STAND

BEHIND THE DOOR NEAR THE

GREAT BED THIS WARRIOR OF LOVE

WILL NOT BE SILENCED

INTO THE BREAKING OF DAWN

TO MEET THOSE FIERY EYES

GAZING INTO THESE OCEAN BLUES

WRAPPED UP IN A LOOSE SHEET

SPREAD THE SUN HIGH IN

THE HEAVENS WHERE SHIPS

SAIL OUT FOR PINK-STREAKED

HORIZONS.

CREATE A BREATHLESSNESS

IN MY KNOTTED THROAT

CONTINUE TO SHIVER

A HEAT SPREAD OUTWARD

THROUGH OUT TO KNOW

NO MATTER WHAT SENSE

OF VICTORY TO BE HAD

SPINNED RIGHT AROUND

IN WAVES OF SHIVERS

IN JUST ONE SIMPLE KISS

VOICE SO RAW

SO CLEAR

WILL ALWAYS DEFY

THESE SENSES TO BE

IN THOSE EYES

OVER THIS FACE

THIS HEART

AND THIS SOUL

ENTIRELY FOREVER MORE

A CHALLENGE

LOST IN A LOVE

NOT HERE OR THERE

BUT SO BEYOND ANY

RIGHT OR WRONG

ITS EVERYTHING SIMPLY

EVERYTHING

TO FEEL 

TO BE

TO KNOW

IT RESTS ON THIS

THOUGHT

FOREVER AND EVER YOURS.
