White water sex

Tjedza's picture

Untamed current swept me
In its wake, Zambezi river white waves
Crashing me deep against myself,
Tossing my bold heart from one high to the next
As I kicked, screamed and clutched
At straw… sand

The tide tugging me torn
Body bruised, by the water’s force
-hurt me in a flood
and healed me in a single ebb,
plunging me deeper

I begged for reprieve from this
Ambivalent mess-
That pushed my thresholds
And engulfed me
As I imploded, and boiled

Until suddenly the River spit me out
Onto dry dirt
Left with scars I will never tell
Stories you would never believe,
But free…

Yet here I find myself
Years after the bruises have sunk.
Wading through shallow puddles
Along the muddy Zambezi bank
Yearning to drown again.

*applause*

This is bee-aa-u-tiful! I don't really have anything to say because it's out of my league. Keep up the good work!

Be yourself. Because if you're busy being someone else, then who's gonna be you?

wish

dunno what that person was saying - ur not out of my league yet. :) i wish u lots of white-water, bungee-jumping, freefall, earth-moving sex and passion and happinees and LOVE -deep, sweet and all-engulping. All of the best things life only grants once. i wish you that, with her, whoever she is, wherever she is, whenever she is. and i hope you hold on tight to that new wave and never let her go, like i did once.

Signed: call me what you will.
