Passionís Ghost

How blind she was to be deceived
By nectar, well seduced.
So sweet its taste, its warmth divine;
Her passions first set loose.

A hurried shock from hand to heart,
Then red blush drapes her cheeks.
A drum encased in flesh and bone,
When passionís voice first speaks.

To kiss again is not too soon
When last kiss is complete;
To make of them a love-born chain
When passionís kisses meet.

She feels his pulse through zealous flesh,
Conferring hers in turn.
Flush cheek to neck and lip to ear
When passions dawn and burn.

The nectar sweet disguises self
And masquerades as good,
Then hearts betray their wisdom sound
And passion knew they would.

Acidic ire is sweet turned ill;
Heís found another host,
And leaves a wounded debutante
To live with passionís ghost.

Felicia Stone

Here, I share, with stark honesty, my life.

Felicia, I have read so many of your poems and have thought each one was wonderful, but the more I read, the better it gets. Keep posting!

Passion's Ghost
Paula, your words play interestingly on the tongue, was liking every thought, but I must say, your last stanza, girl it is brilliant! Much enjoyed.

Heís found another host,
And leaves a wounded debutante
To live with passionís ghost.

Passion's Ghost

I thought that this was a remarkable poem, and I'm not saying it to be nice, and as you can see by what the other's have said, it truely is wonderful. I liked the last stanza the best, just as Nae.

Keep up the good work!

Not to be repetitive, but this poem is so wonderfully written and evokes such feeling. I am going to find more of your work! Thanks so much for sharing!

James and Dreamer
I never tire of hearing that something I've written has evoked emotion in someone else. For me, it is very therapeutic. I get to weep at the keyboard as I conjour up memories I've tried to hard to forget, and that somehow gives me closure, without dragging anyone else in my home through it with me.

But, Poetry is about more than ourselves, it is about reaching out to the people in our world and connecting in some way that helps us all to understand each other and ourselves better.

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my work. I always appreciate feedback!
