Painted Life

The world, our canvas
Is as clear as it could ever be
Impromptu strokes, beyond stoked
For the surprise,I am yet to see.

Follow the scene of my soul,
lighter moments of color
Paint the scene of my mind
Keeping pace with the road ahead
As steps move us forward,
In places where anything goes.

Lo and behold
Paintbrush bristles, kiss the poetic palate
Imprinting our souls and what they see;
A persistent light in the unrelenting darkness
Painting pictures with words that appraise
What the rest of the world
Would not hesitate taking for granted.

I follow my bliss with a like-minded soul
traveling into the paradise of beauty
and I know you will follow me to the end of days,
in this moment we shall walk together
basking in the creation we become
upon this canvas of a place called life
treading lightly into the miracle of now.

Michael from over at Original Dante and I have been working on another collaboration that we were finally able to wrap up with our busy schedules. Michael had sent me a few images and this is the one that spoke to me most. In hindsight, I look at that artwork now and it reminds me of my missing cat, as she would sometimes greet me in the road like a long lost friend. Beautiful memories remembered and a wonderful chance once more to get together with Michael.

Ecstasy unfolds
image
I hear Your voice,
Sweet, Alluring, Delicious;
And My body quivers,
a Willow in November wind;
I have no choice.

I hear You breathe,
Hushed and Rhythmic, Unconscious Seduction;
And My lips tremble,
betraying the Sweet Obsession
that lies underneath.

I feel Your Guile
Measured, Purposeful, Deliberate Plea;
And My eyes close,
Pulse Races and Reticence Scatters;
I see You Smile
As Ecstasy Unfolds.

Beguiled
image
Eyes that smolder, drawing you in
the teasing smile like a sensual sin
she gazes through, lights your soul on fire
as your thoughts burn like a funeral pyre,
her skin so smooth, so silky light
and you want it so much, this lovely delight.
Her words capture you, a sweet southern drawl
on hands and knees you’d surely crawl
to touch this maidens soft pale skin
your fingers run down as you begin
to trace her back like a delicate dance
lost in the moment of this romance.
Beguiling words to quench your thirst
for lust and life she will come first
to weave her magic on a poor souls heart
you never want to be swept apart
this wild hearted woman with a wanton need
will claim your soul, on this she’ll feed
and take you to the dream you crave
for her you’d be her beckoned slave.
She is the master of such desire
a sultry mistress you’ll never tire
as she leads you to her chamber door,
Oh God, you think…I must have more.

Clandestine
image
Awake amidst the Morning’s shimmer,
Glimmer Smiling upon your Skin,
Begin the day with Love Beguiling,
Smiling to know the quandary we’re in!
Beyond the Whispers, Silent as Prose,
Rose Red Morning lifts her Gaze,
Haze of Fire Softly Singing,
Bringing Mischief to these weary Days!
Oh My Love, Before you Leave me,
Be my All one Moment More,
Implore from me my Heart’s Desire,
Fire Kissing a Boundless Shore!
Clandestine Love, Immortal Treasure,
Amidst stolen Moments of Exquisite Pleasure!
written by: Cynthia Morgan

Deliberate
Deliberate Plea
You come to me
Deliberate and gentle
In my weakest moment
You gather me close
Skin touching skin
Please, let us begin.
Passion fills the air around
Touch me now,
Don’t let me down
I am filled
My cup overflowing
You are all I desire,
With you my soul is on fire
As we are love-inspiring
Take me now,
One more time.
