Among the wildflowers


Among the wildflowers
I laid my heart bare
Speaking to myself
But imagining you there

Your eyes stared back
Hungry with need
As I spilled the words
My heart ached to bleed

You felt the fire
Underneath my dress
As I searched for heartstrings
Embedded on my chest

You fueled my flame
With your incessant desire
And I couldn’t hold back
From what you’d inspired

I gave myself over
To your smoldering touch
Pulling you closer
Wanting you so much

With my eyes closed tight
I uttered your name
On the edge of bliss
You were now mine to claim

I took all you offered
Begging for more
Freeing my desire
Like never before

And in breathless euphoria
My body laid bare
Hidden by wildflowers
Yet you were still there

        1. I completely understand… I think my inspiration often comes in waves. I try to write something every day, but I don’t post very much of what I actually write. There are just some things I write, that I feel like the world is better off seeing. I hope you’ll start finding more inspiration. When you do write, it’s always meaningful and I can tell you put a lot of thought into your words.
