A paroxysm to sire.

A wanderlust, a desire.

Soledad, I come home.

Wish for a glass of Merlot

and dream of Rome

Following my mind,

you pull me close

‘Leave behind the mires’,

you urge me so.


In the dark of the room,

you lead me on.

Tease me, seduce me,

on the desk, then the porch.


In the scintillating darkness,

I pin you to the sheets.

Ink you with passion,

watch you wriggle and writhe.


In the gentle tweaking

of my fingers,

I see you twist and curl.

As minutes become hours,

you bleed in my colours.


The fierce and the fragile

unleash every emotion.

As night approaches dawn,

divinely, both are undone.


Breathless but relaxed,

yearning yet satisfied,

a thing of sheer beauty yourself,

And oh, just how I’m fully alive!

    1. Thank you, Sayanti.
      It’s one of my favorites. Not because how it came out to be, what because of what it took off me. It was a lovely experience penning this one.
      Appreciate your kind words.
      I’ll be around yours soon enough, dearest. 🤓


    1. It’s a pleasure to know that, Prakash. It’s totally uplifting to know that all you lovely readers enjoyed reading it as much as I loved writing it.
      My favorite though is this:

      a thing of sheer beauty yourself,

      And oh, just how I’m fully alive!

  1. armed with passion,
    desires of your *sigh*
    i unleash every arsenal,
    aimed at you.
    but, when the screams
    and moans subside…….
    it’s always me,
    yes satisfied,
    but destroyed.

    absolutely loved this……..brilliant!!! 🙂 🙂

  4. Asha, this is one of the best poems I’ve ever read from you. 😍😍😍😍😍

    I mean, I was actually sitting with my Oxford Dictionary to find out some meanings. Wow.. the concept, realisation, rhyming, imagination, everything was perfect.

    I just loved it Asha. And those heart took my heart. Haha😋😍😘😅😊


    1. Isn’t it beautiful, Charvi? I’ve always experienced that I am just as delighted as one would be after having made passionate love to a lover. Words bring that satisfaction and wholeness. Heart’s just as content as it could be.

  5. That’s indeed the struggle of parched mind wandering in a Desert of Words to find an Oasis.
    Some times words are like dew drops gathered on a flower of tired mind in the early morning


  6. You have tapped into the true beauty of any writer it’s not about the money to be gained from a book it’s not about the fame or notoriety …it is the sheer romance and seduction of words , words that we as writers can not get away from , that we as writers feel in our very soul. You captured it well Asha !


    1. Most often, I’m grabbed with the feeling that it’s the words that lead me than me leading them. I like the twist and twirl of thoughts under the influence of the words on paper. It’s a feeling like no other. Like the aftermath of a beautiful romance. Like magic.
      You said is most rightly, Jerry. Words seduce us, than we doing to them.
