Thank you everyone who is following and commenting here. And welcome to all the new readers and followers (almost 400 in the last week)!!! You are wonderful and I cannot thank you enough for the appreciation you have shown me.
After a short break from 30N with the prologue for 90D last week, I’m continuing to post the remaining chapters of TMM/30 Nights, as promised. As before, each chapter comes with the painting I think represents it best, a poem I have written for it, and the song that played in my head when I wrote it. As for 90D, there will be some additional teasers off an on… Thank you so much!! Links below.
Of your open mouth,
I have learned to expect
the ocean air that keeps me alive
the cinnamon scent that spikes my dreams
the rose’s bloom that laces your smile.
From your parted lips,
I crave too much
A tempest of words that will set me free,
The soft music that mutes battlegrounds,
The sighs that lullaby a man to sleep.
From your open lips,
I desire salvation,
Benediction of my infinite days
But should you wish upon me condemnation,
I want your lips to burn me to the stake.
But of all the burdens I place upon your mouth,
Of all that I crave, and all that I miss,
It goads me love, something profound,
that your petal-lips remember this.
When next they open, they let fall
like crepuscular snow into the abyss,
the secret knowledge, the primal call,
from flesh to ash, they scorch me kiss by kiss.
Song: Nina Simone, Feeling Good http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OfJRX-8SXOs
