All That Remains

Texte: Put your mouthful of words away
 – From the Garden by Anne Sexton

In a kiss we silenced the sound of words
And listened to the echoes of desire
Each touch so soft like the feathers of birds
Yet as fierce as the raging flames of fire
As senses stampede like wild roaming herds
On the dry savannah plains; just a kiss
Offering my spirit to your embrace
Just a kiss; a leap into love’s abyss
No more words, there is nothing to be said
When our lips meet and we stand face to face
Fulfilling the dream that has filled my head
For far too long; and now our love is real
And all those doubts and fears have long been shed
Now all that remains is for us to feel

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
