Swell is the night

Piroska Szanto – Lovers

the stars’ our friends
as is the night

here we are brave
bold
safe

never afraid

*

inside each other
the whole universe
within our bodies

tangled as constellations
that cannot be apart

i’m your prima donna
you’re my falling star

Whispers in the dark

Two Figures in a Landscape (2002), Cecily Brown

Cecily Brown – Two figurines in a landscape

lie on your back,
open your legs,
let me search…

do what i say,
let me start,
no time to waste:

from hip to hip, a bridge;
from mind to mind, a path.

drink my seed,
make me complete,

touch me
where no one has.

keep me awake,
make me sane,
once again.

lie on your back,
open your legs,
i’ll find your soul!

Charles M.  Williams – Early morning spooning

your dark waves resting in my arms
i’m like a sandy beach for you to lie.

you sleep like a baby,
never noticing how much you quench my heart.

*

i close my eyes to capture your scent
you smell like coconut, a paradise beach i never dreamed to touch.

*

the freckles on your shoulders reminds me of little stars
lost in the milk way of your ivory cover.

*

i photographed this moment in the back of my mind,
i can’t see it from here but i know your eyes are as blue as the sky.

Egon Schiele – Die Umarmung (Die Liebenden)

"I seek the nerves under your skin."
                           – Patti Smith

 

we blew each other’s mind by giving and receiving pleasure,
nights full of a latent desire that we try to hide
we try, we try, we try,
we cannot hide.

so into it we dive, chests open and clothes off,
we set our bodies on fire, our minds entwined into lust,
we fly together up high like restless birds
we create a nest to lie.

we make the most of it
in a tiny window
of our sparse little time.

i hit your spot,
you hit mine
we’re fine.
