The Erotic Writer

Four writers for the price of one blog

Your Voice

More felt
than heard

It cut cleanly

Into where I had hidden the most precious parts of myself
A tangled mess of worn out hopes and
Sorrows grown glossy with handling
Rough and bleached pale they are gritty to the touch
Covered with a fine salty dust that billows around my head
Settles in my hair as boldly as time
Makes my throat sting and my eyes tear up
A merciless cycle that I have found to be regular as bleeding

 It echoed so sweetly in all my empty places

 Tuning fork that vibrated and rang in a note
That had become nigh unrecognizable in my eons of silence

About ximenawrites

I undulate in your vision A strange beauty in a world of plastic, collagen and steel The endearing oddball the living, breathing Picasso that you want to figure out but too afraid to venture into my penumbra you cower at the gate, fingering the knob on the door to my most secret place wishing you could find the courage to walk with me love me, just as I am

    Ximena,
    very poignant, I particularly like this line, ‘Settles in my hair as boldly as time’.
    Thank you.
    Paul.

      The gray as it appears and spreads. Sobering stuff, and a reminder we don’t have as much time as we deceived ourselves into thinking we had.

    There is so often such a wistful sadness, yearning and loneliness in so much of your writing. And then there’s another side of you that’s tough as nails. I think you must wear your heart on your sleeve when you write.
