LOVE STRIKES GIRL

LOVE STRIKES GIRL

This poem is to honour LGBTQ week.


…your lyrics are lost upon me

but your face arrests me

instantaneously

eyelashes flicker

over pale cyan orbs

the kind of colour caused

by the set sun

and begins to bleed bright blue

against clouds

you twitch

and cropped wheaten hair swishes

across the nape of your naked neck

another twitch

to side profile

and i study your nose

which is slightly upturned

as though sculpted by pixies from some forgotten land

my gaze falls to the ripe crisp crescent of your lips

i’d like to know them

i think those lips i’d soon grow to miss

and I imagine what they’re like to…

someone like you

who relinquished garish girlishness

but still cherishes a sweetness

between sovereign steps

only glimpsed by those

who truly search

you laid down face paint long ago

your nakedness beguiles

you expose

and allure my longing

like a honey bee seeking sweet nectar

blinded by so many before you

but you stripped off your petals

that summer you went to live in the city

to reveal the most exquisite harmonious bud

possessing the sweetest nectar of all.

you’ll never know

but thank you.
