Wild Abandon

August 6, 2015 | By

A love poem about the wondrous desires of the heart and the ardent passions that define them.

white jasmine

“my manicured garden bore forth white jasmines
their fragrance stirring unnamed desires”

Today, as in days long gone by,
my manicured garden bore forth
white jasmines
their fragrance stirring unnamed desires
in the hearts of strangers
as I adorned my hair.
But the insipid white of purity
left me unstirred
till you grazed your hand
plucking and tucking a wild rose instead,
splashing red
in the serene silvery moonlight,
to fire my love
with tempestuous desires
of forbidden passions
when you crushed me to your breast,
leaving me breathless
as you mingled
once again with the crowd.

    There are two possible results of an action. Failure may dishearten one but that should not stop one from trying to act. If one stops trying, one also loses the chance of success thereby predestining the act. The author says ".......but you are doomed if you don't try."
