Arid Land

heart, beat you hard within this breast
to help me remember
the excitement of languorous ardor
the texture of bristle against neck
the slap of moisture in an arid land

heart, beat you hard within this breast
as flood meets heated desert
and life begins anew

  1. Such memories linger in the heart for so long... the bristle, the moisture, the hard beat, the flood... so arousing

  2. I think the drought just broke :)
