The Author’s Desire

I long for you to
curl up on the corner of your couch 
read me,
pierce me 
with your eyes,
pillage through my pages-
insignificance trails like a hound
my only chance 
for escape-
the sound of you
 turning pages
my poured out soul
keep me from 
that which I fear
let our minds intermingle like 
warm wine 
on tongue
sweet, not dry-
ripe, full bodied, red
find me
satisfying, mystifying-
well said.
Linking at the Pub, ooh-la-la for Open Link Night at dVerse
Come on over!
