Her Dance, Her Song

She climbs the dizzying heights to where I buried my heart. Harvesting my words on her way, she plucks the neglected fruit and with each step, seeds my blood again. She scatters whispers and shouts of joy, and meets me

in beds of passion
with words woven, dances spun
I melt into you

when my dance is done. My feet fly me to the dizzying heights where she planted her heart. Rivers of desire stream behind me like the ribbons she once laced through my shoes, running rampant through her beautiful words. She bursts into bloom, and I dance.

    1. Thank you for a wonderfully inspiring prompt! (Even though I kinda cheated on the “everyday object” part…)
