Everywhere

Poem By Brioney Leon

Thru a frozen winter forest
I followed a path to the
beginning of the sea
I was searching for solitude
but you wouldn’t leave me
I inhaled the ocean’s breath and
tasted the salt of your skin
I turned my face to the sun
The sun became your eye
I touched the damp sand
and felt the nape of your neck
I spoke your name
You answered
With kisses of ice wind
An audience of trees applauded

Comments about Everywhere

I really like this one, Brioney. I know that when I first started writing poetry, I was the motivating force in all of my work...Jefferson and others here encouraged me to work toward universality...I try...again...I'm a science major, so...poetry is on the periphery...but I know what I like, and I like this one. Nice job.

About My Lover

His love is like a hard rain
It drenches me and soaks my skin
I close my eyes and drink it in

Recital

She was tangled in her lover’s words
He always seemed to leave
more questions than answers
In her mind

With You

We made love
And in my ecstasy
I rode you like a Pegasus
racing into a hot wet sky

Sixteen Going On 21

When we were young
we wanted to belong
to everything
especially the streets

Misgivings

I have shown you everything
But still you cannot see me
You think I’m blinded
with infatuation
