rakefire longings

Language (and suggestion) more like PG+


Gustav Klimt: The Kiss, 1907-08

my rakefire* longings

smash against

your occupied heart

what grew more tiresome

my familiar contours or corners

boxing gloves up, bell rung

final retribution by

defacing your phallic* ritual

the perfidy* of her naked

lounging in our bed

I know the heart-rending,

leg-opening stories you tell


For Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Wordle # 115. and Word Press Daily Prompt: deprive

rakefire: A visitor who outstays his or her welcome. Originally, someone who stays so late the dying coals in the fireplace would need to be raked over just to keep it burning

phallic: word root for wordle: phallus

perfidy: deliberate breach of faith or trust; faithlessness; treachery
