whiskey smooth

whiskey dances upon

my cherry red lips,

plied apart and heavy

begging for that

soothing burn

to numb the pain,

liquor laced with

the poisoned remains

of lovers and old regret.

velvety amber slips

down my parched throat

in one clean swallow,

a rush of warmth

offered to a pinched stomach

starved for tenderness

and touch.

/

his phantom hands sift

through my tresses

tugging on a waterfall of silky black,

exposing the curve of my neck,

smooth, alabaster skin

laid bare

meant to entice

and ensnare.

an ember swiftly fans to inferno,

as anticipation builds

and crests

pushing us over the edge

with prayers

and pleas

and breathy m o a n s,

drowning us

in raw pleasure,

flesh moving on flesh

in a rhythm as old as rhyme.

his words whisper

over my slick skin,

don't go

but this is my goodbye.

/

another smooth swallow,

another burn

before the memories

begin to fade

and mellow

anesthetized by a swirl

of barley and rye

as i slip to

the bottom of the bottle

where blessed oblivion calls,

and i can escape

his haunting,

if only for awhile.

    Oh man this was too good, Heather! The imagery is so good I can taste the whisky and feel the burn. I especially love the line, ‘liquor laced with the poisoned remains of lovers and old regret.’ That one stuck with me, great job!

    Very effective Heather. Excellent job and haven’t read any that cover this object/issue.. ☺️👏

  • It's hard to imagine you have ever experienced such absence & emptiness. But you express it so poignantly & viscerally, I feel the depth of this ache.

  • JBaz5 months ago

    I felt like I was invading a private moment, but kept reading anyway. The ending was sad, and so full of emotions.

    well written

  • Cathy holmes5 months ago

    Smooth, sexy, senuous and at the same time, sad. A brilliant mess of emotion drowning in amber. Excellent work, my friend.
