A bruised sky haunts the western horizon

The sun jets out in star like creation

Dusk blooms as distant vespers linger

Anticipating the evening shadows, where I thrive


My pulse quickens, expecting your crashing embrace

The transporter approaches, doors slide wide

I stand immovable along an empty corridor

There will be four more to arrive, before I see you


Loins stir awaiting union, matching the vibration of my pulse

Not much longer now, the torment would soon break

Peering through foggy air, longing time to transpire swiftly

Possessing more fever than I could sustain


Aching for pure surrender inside your arrival

Preserving a melody than could not be contained

Tracing each memory of you in my short collection

Breathing in your scent, like a wolf on it’s approach


Am I being hunted or am I the huntress

Either way, the kill is in the crosshair

Folding in as night looms, knowing the imminent

Paused, in wait, as a predator, I am.


-M. Jacobs

This is quite spiritually sensual... already a favorite added to my mental collection as well as to this site. You write not only with imagination, but hold the gift of expressed passion. 10 Soul



Wow! Thanks so much, as I deeply value your opinion of my work and want to evoke such feelings, as you have described, from the reader.

It's wonderful! You brought so many concepts together...the zig-zag thought process lends to the angst of the feeling that your words evoke...pure anticipation and desperation! Great write! ~10 from me...sorry I took so long getting here! ~ Wam



Thanks for you kind words, I haven't been on here last few days. Been busy. So grateful for your attention to my page.;-)

On the prowl again I see. Another intense and erotic piece. You certainly have a flair for this kind of stuff. I'm not sure I'd want to be in your cross hairs...well, maybe just a Again, what does your hubby think of this darker side of you? Me thinks he's a fortunate man. At least for now. God help him, though, if he ever gets on your bad side. Thanks again. I liked it a lot....K



Sorry it took me a long time to see this beautiful comment. I appreciate it so much, as I do enjoy writing on this darker side and it is ever so joyous to receive accolades from poets I admire just as much.

The level of complexity here makes me shiver. So do the messages in a write that bobs and weaves like an accomplished athlete. Very seductive. It takes loads of talent to make it work. And it does. Sultry. -Alan



What an extraordinary compliment- many thanks and blessings to you for having sent it. I hope to do that again for you sometime. Stay in touch.

Thanks for your kindness and supportive compliment to "Huntress".

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
