Anything

I can soak my tongue in sweet, sweet words
and find the tenderest parts of you.
Or, roll my tongue in salty truth
and learn to love the sting.

For you, anything.
For you, anything.

I can lie, genteel, like a lady,
or be the woman unafraid to scream.
I can burn through you hot as daylight,
or be the cool comfort darkness brings.

For you, anything.
For you, anything.

Anything at all.

I don't have a comment. You took my breath away, the first time I read it, and the fourth time.

Ah, yes! For the first time in many, many years, I wish I had someone I wanted to share it with! You did indeed take my breath away! Have a great weekend, MZ!

That's enough to get the band back together. Excellent, MZ. The salty truth tastes the best, though it doesn't always seem like it.

This was wonderful. Salty truth, lie like a lady, cool comfort. Words. I believe you can do these things with your words.

I like the willingness you've captured here. It speaks of that longing inside to have and be had.

I had a yen to come back and read this one again, but I hadn't realized that it was almost exactly a year ago that you wrote it. I just love this poem.
