Harlequin Horizons

if preference implies prejudice
then guilty i should be found
for wanting what my heart desperately craves

these flesh filled feelings
i am made of

desires i cannot reduce
or disguise in the crevices of heartbreak

like a lover’s sweet lips
which hide the truth in a word
spoken from the hips

the lies
minds screwed loose

cobra pose… my favourite asana
peace sign for the cause… her legs to the heavens

by the romantic life we abide
and use to procreate

    Beautifully expressed words of poetry. Prose could never say the same.

    I totally agree with your remark. Prose has its place but it’s not the ideal medium for tackling profundities I don’t think. Poetry packs more meaning.
