Needing More Than Hugs: Romantic Improv Email Sonnet

November 10, 2010

Is that all you want? A hug?
Oh, E, oh! I need so much more!
I need you to roll up the rug!
I need us to tear up the floor.

I need to caress your sweet-framed face,
to put you in a trance,
as I glide you from place to place,
in a soft, warm late autumn dance.

And then you’ll take me by the hand,
and lead me where you will:
up stairs, down halls, to promised lands,
where our volcanic intensity thrills.

Where days, weeks, months, years of craving
moves and melts into fun misbehaving.

Men Aren’t The Only Ones Who Don’t Write: Revolutionary Email Sonnet

August 24, 2010

I guess you’re saving
all the words I’m craving
for the novel you’re writing
(which people will delight in!)

When you decide it’s no chore
to write much more,
please jump right in
and write me again!

But until such time
as you can deliver prose or rhyme,
I’ll say adieu,
and my writing’s through.

Getting to know someone through two or three words
borders, I think, upon the absurd.
