Jana-Alisha O’Dell

It’s always been you.

The quiet evening beckons birds home
As the sun begins to set,
a cool wind overtakes.

Night is ready to set in,
Tuck in,
Tonight’s sunset is quite the show.
Light dances on the horizon

Sweeping hues of a color palette of fire ablaze.
Such glory to witness,
what a marvel.

I will sit and watch you in the distance
I have a box office seat to the endless skies.
I witness the day closing on,

Sitting on my favorite chair,
on my porch, nestling a hot cup of cocoa,
I tend to get lost in your beauty.

Am I your favorite?
Do I cross your mind?
Am I the reason behind that smile?
Am I the only one?

Hour 15 Prompt 15

Text Prompt

“Write a poem about someone or something you have lust for.” by Daryl Cole Curnow.

I want you,
I desire your lust,
I want to get lost
in a forest of thoughts.

I want you to take me
I am willing to burn
just for a moment
all eternity – only for you.

 

I want you to make me scream,
Excite my passion,
wreck my nerves,
Leave me hanging
for more.

 

This spell that you have me under
is my reason for hope.
I am holding onto every last word,
that comes out of your forbidden lips.

 

Ruin me, baby.
C’mon darling, the pleasure is worth the pain.
I want a taste of imtimacy with you.
I don’t want your feelings, I just want your sex.

Burning Desire. 

Random Prompt Hour #14

 

You look my way
my hair stands all over,
smiling in my direction
with your playful gaze   
strips me naked off my yearning.

 

Baby I pine for you.
Oh, we’re not meant to be.
I long for your comforting touch
we’re not meant to be.
I love another soul deeply
we’re not meant to be.

 

You’re just a boy
my feelings are like playthings to you.
or maybe I am just a friend to you.
But, you’re more than that to me.
I am trying so hard to just want to be friends.

 

I want to forget the things
you do to me.
I would like to move on.
Cause nothing good is going to come of this.
But, then you call out my name
I am back at the altar
worshipping your gaze.
Burning for you.
Melting in your name.  

 

I want more,
of you.
I desire you.
Call out my name.
Carnal desires unleash,
can’t you see it in my eyes.

 

I desire your lust,
I want to be loved by you.
I want you to recognise me,
Come save me boy,
I am burning for you.
Like a forest fire- this desire will destroy me, you, us.
Just once, burn for me,
the way I burn for you.  

 

Oh! you’re just a tease
You give me just enough
to keep me coming back for more.
You deprive me of the satisfaction
of being where you are.

 

I crave you,
I hunger for your passion.
You are my forbidden fruit.
Call out my name.
Unleash my fire -my burning desire.

Prompt hour #13 (Text Prompt)

Young wild thing
where did you leave your heart?
is it too late to feel?
Is it too late to say you’re mine, I wonder…

You were here all along,
You had that look of longing
like you were waiting for him
to look in your direction,
to notice your bleeding heart
and to belong…

You belong baby,
in my longing, yearning, my joy,
my pleasure, my pain.
You emanate in every one of them.

Your essence is in my respiration,
my inspiration and my vocation.
I’ll devote my life to worshiping you.
Your being is art, my muse and my refuge..

Bold and bright
your love dares to shine
unafraid of rejection.
and inspite of it you’ll love.

Your heart holds oceans of courage
Fearlessness sets your sails
You navigate the world’s treacherous waters
battered and bruised with an unbroken spirit.

You love with a purity
unknown to mankind
Can I call you mine?

So this year I thought I’d shake things up a bit and challenge myself, so I am mixing up the prompts and attempting them in no organised order I am simply following where my heart guides me
Also my original idea was to get the words on the image itself which I terribly failed at.  🙁

Micropoem #1

Fly me to the moon my love,
on wings of pure light
lead the way
to the promised lands
of forgotten tomorrows.
Maybe darkness and light
can create an ethereal symphony,
like the one before our eyes.
With you by my side,
all my dreams do come true.

Micropoem #2

My love has no beginning
and no end,
like space -it is in a state of infinity.

They’re all roots darling,
we are all deeply connected to the cosmos.
up high -reaching for the sky
the other is beneath the ground we tread..

Our journeys may vary
but our destination is the same..
We’re all headed in the same direction.

We meet in full circles
living our lives
Another trip around the sun.
We rejoice and mourn,
we feel everything so deeply,
we bleed, burn, still we rise.
we cry, lose,
we fight and fail.
we are continually growing towards the sun.
We reunite and we connect.

We’re all roots darling.

prompt no 22

Something about the way you look at me
You see right through my facade and bullshit.
You crumble me down to the bone.
My soul recognizes you as a familiar stranger.
Your gaze makes me feel so vulnerable and raw.
I am falling into pieces, won’t you come save me?

To have hope in your heart is strength in itself.

Micro poem #2

The light never died,
It was inside you all along.

Prompt no 21 Human Craving

I crave deep, meaningful connections.
I long for honest, unfiltered conversations.
With absolutely anyone who is willing to pour their heart out.

In the age of social distancing,
I miss human touch,
the healing power of a hug,
the warmth in a handshake;
the reassurance and confidence
that lies in the firm, confident grip.

I crave unique communications that expands beyond mere words.

While everybody is busy hoarding up,
I have learned the harsh reality of greed
and it has the capacity to erase humanity.

But I still crave the human touch.
I want to feel human again…

Alas! The immune system isn’t immune to everything.
