One Third

Poetic Asides – Poem-A-Day Challenge – Day 17 prompt:

So today's prompt is fairly straight forward: Write a poem in the 3rd person. You can describe a scene, an event, whatever. But there's to be no use of "I," "me," "my," etc.--not even "you" or "we." No, keep yourself completely out of this poem. I'll leave the subject of your poem up to you.


Lust

an overwhelming desire
burns in her flesh
an appetite, insatiable
shudders through her soul
to know and be known
to read and be read
to write, and feel release

tension builds, smolders
lightning, bottled up inside
like a woman absent from her lover
aching with need for his touch
his hands, his skin against hers
the mind fogs and the vision blurs

only this clear, demanding urge
pulses in her ears
her mind, her fingers
races through her body
demanding that she give it release
slice open a vein
and spill it out across the page

an elixir mixed of joy and pain
life and death, words, phrases
to feed the reader
who might need reviving
need reminding what it is
to live, to love, to feel
to fuel a passion
a lust for release
