The Sweetest Verse

I haven't written poetry in quite some time, but this one just came tripping off my tongue...

Inspired by a challenge at even_angels_


A lover’s alphabet falls from your lips

Your tongue the pen outlining swells and dips

You leave me sibilant from your inscription

The method you employ defies description

From a to z you scribe in lower case

As I press ever closer to your face

A gasp torn from my lips the only sound

As you begin to write another round

I gasp again as you begin to trace

The lines and curves that form the upper-case

I’m crying out – exploding – then reformed

You’ve taught me what it is to be unadorned

Right you are! I've tasked myself with writing one of the prompts for each of the challenges since the mod has declared open season there.

And thanks for reminding me that I should mention them here in my post.

Thank you darlin'... Poetry is something that I don't do often, but when inspiration strikes I definitely go with it.
