Day 57 of the 365 poem challenge.
Word of the day persiflage meaning "frivolous light hearted talk"
Lap of tenderness
And I never understood how she could see anything in me the way her hair was and the way her hand rested on my lap I'd never known such feelings our easy persiflage our easy way our togetherness and yet there was an absence of tenderness and an element of fantasy was it that she wanted me to be or that I wanted her to be an answer to my quandary on that moment this moment this electricity charged moment where her lips are thick with the candy of her cadence and my eyes are charged and an energy vibrates in me and this is ours and she and I will be something more as though this is my creative passion she is that and more to me
You stare at me and possess me like a thing possessed I can imagine you sitting grotesque in my lap and your tongue is like a dogs and it laps and it sticks onto me with pornographic intent you dream of me in some phantasmagoria as though I were yours and you mine and that I was somehow undiscoverable and unknowable use synonyms use exotic wild untamed use names and words for me pretend that it's not my labia you want to bury and meld with pretend and dream of lies where we are happy and I laugh and its in slow motion and my lips are fat with music and harmony do not confuse contempt for lust.
