Pomegranate by A.D. Labuschagne

Poem

You unfold before me
Like a pomegranate
Soft, and abundant in soft flesh
Your skin smooth as wax
And melting at my touch
Your lips dripping with honey

You are my oasis

In you I find peace
And new strength
You are a river of pure
Rushing water
Like heaven to my parched mouth

I want to shower you with kisses
Like the summer rain
I want to be and stay one with you
Until eternity drifts away into sweet whispers
In the heat of a cold winters night

Your eyes show your hunger
My heart thirst for more
Your touch, fleeting
But for a moment
Reappears with a cacophony
Of longing
And desire unchained

I will dwell in this oasis

Enveloped in the shade
You provide this nomadic heart
It has travelled far
Just to be here with you

You taste like velvet
And you pour like rain
Leaving blossoms in your wake
You are Nature
Creation
In all its simplicity and
Complexity
The big bang happened in your eyes
And when everything was dark inside
You whisper…

Three words…

Your breath dancing on my cheek…

And the room explodes with light
And life
And abundance…

Your eyes contain a million stars.

The rivers rush
And the waters rage
Like a hurricane within me

And I just can’t contain
Myself…

You are my oasis

My nomadic heart
Has travelled far
Just to be with you
