EDIYE SERIES (III) : DIVING DEEP


Ediye,
do you know my heart has no hearth,
my words wound not
and my thrusts are turgid trusts
that never fall flaccid to toxic words?

So, look me in the eyes
and drown in the ocean of my desires,

though blue the sea you see
and deep the abyss of it
it tells how deep this love can be
and how endless the depth can be

Ediye,
dive! why halt and stalk?
my blue seas drown not.
Come now, fit your tremblings hands
in mine, and swim with me
let’s dive deeper than deeper life
into the depth of our desires

Wrap your lips on mine
and whisper words one would rather feel than speak.

Like the lines on your palms,
tattoo portraits of you and I
on the contours of your skin

Lead me on until I am lost
in the maze of sweetness,
until I see no passage
save the one your love salvage.

Make my home on the best page of your heart
And I’ll make you moan
like a happy sage in my arms

Ediye,
this could be you and I:
a piece of sizzling poetry
