Do one last recall, and this is the real farewell. Last summer, those unbridled loud cries and laughs -- Floated away! Quietly flowed through my body, as swept by a gust of tornado, ran towards the opposite direction and disappeared in waves.
Glossy leg fell asleep. It will no longer wake up. I knew. You hold my face under the moonlight. When tears become pearls, my reborn life is announced.
So screw those miniskirts! Even wearing black nail polish, I have miraculously regained virginity.
Let me use the gentlest voice to talk to you. If there is no tenderness, how can we survive? You must take me with you. I'll grow between your fingers. When they clench, I obediently fall asleep. When they open, I show the most coquettish erotic dance to you only.
And then, I will sit among crowds and listen to the stories of countless others. I listen to stories. I write stories. I tell the stories to lots of irrelevant others. It also gives me joy.
Apart from you, this is the second thing I feel happy for. And this will do. I am very satisfied.
Another sunny afternoon, near summer. I woke up.
The soul in the flame died along with the evil body. The reborn life stands in the ocean, with so much excitement. Darling, let me show the most coquettish erotic dance to you only.
Ancient Heart Magazine is here again! Now based in Sydney, Australia. After a number of years of publication I decided a while ago to give it a miss. But, poetry being poetry, I couldn't keep away and now here we are again; all new and bright and fresh. In a slightly different format, namely that of the blog.
Submission Guidelines: Leave a comment on the latest blog post/poem containing one poem, your pen name, home town, country and optional email address. In due course your poem may or may not appear on the blog/mag. I will not enter into any correspondence or acknowledge receipt of submissions or feel obliged to answer any other queries. I just want to get as many great poems as possible out there.
