Past the Barrier
The desert could not burn me like your skin,
A salt and copper pressure in my throat
Your palms a vortex made to draw me in
And spill out all the words I ever wrote,
Until I'm made from sunlight spun with sin
That dries against the cracking of your lips.
The sky will melt and shudder overhead
To coat your shoulders, tiny diamond drips
That seal the fissured landscape so it gleams;
You leave no maps by which love might be led,
A stumbling wanderer in velvet dreams
Through sands that shift to dull the pulse of time

Your living poem of many-splendored themes,
And searing skin that has no need for rhyme.

I do not think this poem could have been any more vivid. I could picture every word in my mind. You really brought this to life. Very very very well done. ~Savannah.

I think it goes without saying that you do a very good job at creating a complex and visual picture in your words.  It's is a difficult task to bring words to life, but you seem to be well trained.  Very good job.

Skin is the main organ of erotic arousal - when all your skin is on fire then you are truly there.
You express it beautifully.

   It takes centuries for diamonds to form.

Tears take only a moment

to express

a woman's living poem

"that has no need for rhyme".

Love the interplay.

All the best,
