Eternal Memory Kept


  • Ecstasy

    Eternal Memory Kept

    Rumored on lips of past lovers

    Swelled on the ocean’s waves

    Your kiss a portent to forthcoming bliss

    A wish beyond ecstasy cascades


    Gushing up like a pure stream

    Bursting it's mountain vein

    Swooning against your embrace

    Your fingers entwined in my mane


    Not withholding my secret longing

    Revealing every vulnerable strain

    Emptying and filling in unison

    Desires ablaze never to refrain


    Emotions glitter upon the facial screen

    Racing forward, delivered and met

    Timeless explosions thrust evermore

    Eternal memory kept


    -M. Jacobs

    This is a very clever piece- The imagery you use works perfectly in telling the story, creating images in my mind, and turning up the heat - 10 from me

    I like the subtle sensuality embedded in this piece... a very colorful and well crafted wordage here... i derailed briefly on the stream rushing "up" it's mountain vein... gravity aside, i enjoyed this short work... kudos and a big ten from doug....



    Thanks again, Doug. You're right, maybe I should reword the "up" on that, when edit is available. Thanks so much.

    Well thanks, Ginga. I am so pleased to hear that. Thanks for reading my new ones and I will over to your page this week.

    If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.
