Shop Ice in a Summer Heat Wave

The times
Of love
Always take me by surprise
Leaving me melted on the lino floor
Like ice on my back in a heat wave
And your finger’s
Easy under my olive summer skin

Your hooded eyes away
There’s really nothing to see here
Its just love disolving into itself
Inevitably taking the rest of the world
With it

    Incredibly beautiful imagery here – and as Debbie has said, that line is particularly beautiful. This is a superbly crafted and marvelous poem. Deeply moving.
