Dreaming was I by Arcadia Tempest

Currently unavailable for purchase

Dreaming was I

Dreaming was I
Dreaming the sun was shining on my face
A warm lingering along my neck
Embracing my shoulders
This dream knows my little secret
The angles of your clavicle I find divine
The left and right are angular delights
Painters have found them exquisite
The symmetry of the little keys
I find a sensual breath between them
They entice your eyes to touch
I have no idea why
I just find them inviting
So incredibly enticing
covered by brief skin
I want to get my charcoal mind
Draw them again and again
Impressions they leave in me
It is lines of your sensuality
I will not notice your eyes as much
As I savor the jewel lines
A collarbone collector is I
From your lips to your neck
these wings that meet your shoulders
They are your angel wings
You never did loose
My darlings

Feelings and words fall on to the page
Sometimes they bite back
Sometimes they tug on our sleeve
Sometimes they have a cheeky grin
They stay once a page has found them
Words are faithful to us even in the dark

    “A collarbone collector is I..” as usual the writing capitvates me
    the photo- something about that vein running up the neck makes it come alive.
