Poems by Augustine Joseph

 

Once You Were A Curious Thing 

Once you were a curious thing
Stolen the lonely moments
Sown seeds of unrest
A rush in my thick veins.

You grown flesh and blood.
Innocent eyes
Haunted smiles
Glossy cheeks
Tender fingers
All grown
Across walls of guilt.

Once you were a curious thing
Each farewell
Leaves my bleeding lips
Swollen in your wild fantasies.
Each bite
Leaves an untold bliss
In fearless moments
Of treasured magic
On your secret curves.

Each time you sip love
Your feelings wet
In my eyes’ edges
My body scents
In your holy essence.

Let each of your broken pieces
Melt in my masculine throbs
In this chalice,
The divine blood of our sacrifice.

Let’s break these shells
Offer into our sacred arms
Merge in each other’s breath
Listen to our echoes
The rhythm of our compassion.

Once you were a curious thing
A rush in my thick veins.

 

***

My love,
You cannot unlove
The love we had
The nights we shared
And the hugs that soothed.

You cannot undo
The things we did
The time we spent
And the promises we skipped.

But you could redo
Those things
You did
And you loved
To do
With me
In a more lovable way.

For,
My love
You are my love.
