Unfulfilled Desires


Secrets buried deep
bubble up in dreams
spill out of a boiling
cauldron of feelings
setting fire to fantasy
conjuring up
steamy scenarios
lips meeting
limbs melding
skin fusing
slaking the thirst
of parched bodies

Sated, I set free words
locked in my heart
I love you, I say
The thorny syllables
tremble on my breath
their sharp prick
bursts the bubble

Even in dreams
you don’t tell me
what I need to hear
