FOREVER NOT YOURS, Love Poetry by Gloria D. Gonsalves

The mighty pulse dwelled majestically, ready to tango with

every last longing until inhales of flesh befitted desires.

So a creed of passion was written, thou shall devour every moan

until the combe overflows with nectar

Part of the 2016 LOVE Poetry Festival.

 

FOREVER NOT YOURS
by Gloria D. Gonsalves

 

You came and left fast like a thin Santa in a fat chimney

with promised gifts of goodness.

 

I remember your worshiping of my body like sacred petals of

a flower and heralding me your godly foreplay.

 

Your unsaid words showered me with deeds of heavenly award

that made Venus gasp with envy.

 

The kisses that you whispered to me were angelic hymns
of redemption, blooming what had long gone withered.

 

Caressing dormancy to awakenings of red purity and

passionate avalanches. Nothing of me was spared from melting.

 

I was flown into the heart of your eyes mirroring startling thirst

to be taken with the wings of adoration and submission.

 

Exhausted with imperfect melodies, you fine-tuned my hesitations

with forbidden baton of arousal.

 

Unleashing the timid façade, I dared to excel in the challenge

of unrestrained picnic with you.

 

The mighty pulse dwelled majestically, ready to tango with

every last longing until inhales of flesh befitted desires.

 

So a creed of passion was written, thou shall devour every moan

until the combe overflows with nectar.

 

Amidst my party of juicy emotions you were done and gone.

Alas, I was forever not yours!

2015, Poetry by Gloria D. Gonsalves

It was a year of everything and nothing.

A home.
Tight-knit family.
Happiness.

They came and robbed us peace.

A chaos.
Disintegrated family.
Loss.

2015, by Gloria D. Gonsalves

It was a year of everything and nothing.

A home.
Tight-knit family.
Happiness.

They came and robbed us peace.

A chaos.
Disintegrated family.
Loss.

Then I met Louis Phillipe.

Cherry finish.
Classic.
French.

He sat me down to write it all.

Memories.
Laughter.
Mostly tears.

* 2015 saw largest exodus of people fleeing from the Syrian Civil War. There were also other events which shook the global humanity. Some continue to occur (e.g. the eastern Congo as the site of the deadliest conflict since World War II and the Israeli–Palestinian conflict) and others were quickly forgotten (e.g. Nigerian girls abducted by Boko Haram, the Nepal earthquake and Germanwings plane crash).

 

Writing gives me courage to face grave realities. Prior to the end of the year, I was gifted a Louis Phillipe writing desk. It is there where I continue to find solace for my soul and spirit to have faith in the goodness of humans.
