Embedded in the polished face
of a moon-blind eye opened wide,
an ideology of place;
of everything which lies outside
the heart, once lids have been pried
fully apart; of mirrored core
where love reflects as so much more
than an optical collusion.
| Yes indeed. Reflections can sure be funny things. Very often they are not what they seem. Well written again.|

They say that love conquers all and I definitely have a tendency to want to believe. I imagine alien civilizations that have achieved the transcendental accession to ascension. That they might even have been able to continue to exist without corporeal physicality (not that they totally outgrew their propensity for it). The thought of such spirits wandering the cosmos, being creative, having fun. We must be such a disappointment in so many ways. A mirrored core I that!

Oh this is exquisite. Sensual and spiritual. Lovely
There is no more that needs be said..beautifully done.

With the goal of racing to orgasm
Just to get it over with. The point gets made
Conception occurred. But personally I would
Have felt less used if there had been a bit of foreplay

I like, about this, that it's kind of shiny and neat, which maybe goes a fair way toward disguising what rests below the surface. I think your word choices work double hard, effectively to offer a sense of something slick and/or pleasing in appearance that turns out to but less than so. Really like the parting shot 'optical collusion' as it brings it all home. Nice work.||| Posted on 2013-12-06 00:00:00 | by emwren | [ Reply to This ] |
