I caught you
walking out on wires again,
falling out my window
in a trick so beautiful
that your father wept
and your lover
held his breath.
You called it
an act of defiance
in that voice
that brings me to my knees
and begs me
to argue with you
when you know
that all I really want to do
is strip the pain
from your insides
and bed you
like war.
Prompt - fly

For Victoria

Thanks so much! I had started out with wings, not wires...and then realized it was the line in a play, so I changed it.

Desire, passion & Brendan's love for his lady. A very powerful & dynamic combination.. .
If I was where a hat I would remove it & bow to you.

You are an amazing poet with an amazing heart that wields your heavenly pen.. :clap: :rose:

Oy! I must have been really tired that day. I meant, "if I was wearing a hat I would remove it and bow to you." :blush:
Making spelling errors when writing to a master poet...sheesh...not good. However, you are very welcome! I love reading your work, as each piece is a new surprise, a new experience in how you view love or life. I am never disappointed. If I could fav everything of yours I would.

Anyway, I am long-winded tonight, so I should quit while I am ahead. .. :D Please never stop writing your beautiful words. :rose:
