Words of Berry Sweetness

by: Bobbie Gross

I stand aloof.
Avoid your gaze.
But I’m caught in the rays of your radiance.
You shine in the distance–
illuminating the distance,
drawing my distance like rouge on your cheeks.

I beckon you nearer.

Your face gathers in a warm embrace.
Emotions meld into feeling,
feeling into air
or perhaps the compressed space between us.

Unstressed sounds and
more stressed silence couple
in the throaty sighs and

unsighs that undulate in waves of velvet pulse.

My lips to your ear drip
drip in berry sweetness–
dribble down your chin and linger,
luscious like a soft repose.

My words caress and stoke the burning.
Let them linger
as you view them
on the darkness
of your eyelids

as the heart in your neck titters and
leaps like a naked bird in a silken tree,
leaving you breathless–
in the eternity before
and the moment

after.
