The hunger

by Teatart

At times I lose myself
In the reverse conflict
Between love and hate,
Admiration and disdain

My hero the one minute
My adversary the next
Why I loved you
Could be easy to forget

I soothe my soreness
With pretty words
That reinforce my views
And righteously appoint me queen

But you have robbed me of that
Unsettling my perch and
Throwing me to the floor
Lest I overlook my imperfection

I am hungry for a few
Sweet sentiments
Sniffing the bare ground for
Crumbs of candied adulation

In happier times
My ribs were coated with fat
My tank filled to overflow
With love and respect

I have learnt the hard way
A touch is not always good
Bread is not always sustenance
And love is not always given without condition.

Dear Lover

by Teatart

To my lover and mate
I pray you understand
the circumstances to which are my fate
I fear the ridiculer himself
for he cares nought of others
and solely of self
I fear the words of which
shall be spoken
but cannot halt the image
which tis not my token
I hide beneath acceptance
and hope that the ocean wave
will pass me by …
but ere comes the tide
and creep back it shall go
leaving nothing but sand –
sand and shells
shells and sand
staring eyes and outstretched hand
Strength is my pillar of salt
but tis this not my cup of flaw?
I live not for dare
but tis trouble that cares
for he shall seek out my softness and
my standing with a curved point pry
Tis Sheol that shall the door unlock
for in death is everything free!
This, Dear Lover,
shall my fate be.

Black Knight

by Teatart

Twas night that beckoned me
Coaxing me into your darkness
You kissed my velvety skin
And dribbled honey into my ears
You stroked and provoked
Teasing senses I thought extinct
I fell into your depths of arousal
Melting into your burning passion

Your presence weaves through my soul
Enticing me from the hold of daylight
Easing me into your pitch infinity
Come with me, go with me …
Join me in my hunger
His light dances at my fingertips …
Stay with me, lay with me
Be the bride of my warmth

You seduce my aching sexuality
Come with me, be with me
Let me show you the height of ecstasy
I merge into your shadow
Seeping from his vanishing light
I came with you, I went with you
I wear your crown of night.
