Can I Taste You?

Beginning seven days of love:

Can I taste you?
Can I feel the girth
and weight of you
tickling the back of my throat?
Can I caress you with my tongue
feeling the velvet of your skin
against the tip of my tongue
leaving a trail along the surface
as I take all of you in
starting with your name.
I will start with tender kisses
dropping them on every line and curve
of first your name, then your body.
The switch up will be so quick
it might un-nerve you at first.
But this is something I’ve been
preparing for all my life
so I’ll go slowly. At first.

Can I taste you?
Can I caress the letters
of your name like
cubes of ice
feeling the warmth
of your lips finally meeting mine?

Our souls will continue
the dance
started so long ago
while our bodies play
catch up.

Can I taste you?
Can I know what it’s like
to be engulfed
in all of you
one toasted coconut bite of you
at a time?

Can I taste you?

Peace & Love,


About Rosalind Guy

I'm broken & my soul is weary/ my weary soul rebels, fights/ anything & anyone who tries to heal me/I beat my head against a wall of memories/ trying hard to break free from the chain of memories/ I can only be free by saying it so/ i weave a necklace from words and finally/ I find freedom/ free free free. As you can see, words are powerful to me. As Maya Angelou said, words are wallpaper of the soul. I have lots of nightmarish memories that threaten to break me, but I learned a long time ago about the power of words. They can be used to heal and destroy anything that threatens to destroy the person. Words coupled with love have the power to save and heal. I am author of three books: Skinny Dipping in the Pool of Womanhood, Tattered Butterfly Wings, and Blues of a Love Junkie. I am a high school English teacher. I am a former reporter. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a fierce advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who's voices go unheard. Check out my Amazon author page at the following link:
