Warm air swarm
Expecting less than nothing
Except whatever the term
Is for the birth of a cling
The bass of the wind
Sing a song so unnoticed
As the world spins
Such goes unfocused
The pure curiosity
Stopped me from logic
Pausing from the worlds atoricty
A chance- joyous or tragic
I listen close
As the air sings about my beauty
You are the choice I chose
Who responded with vehement duty
Kissing so slow yet perfect
The wind, the song, the feeling in slow motion
For once everything clicked
Flowing like an ambivalent ocean
How this unfolds?
Possibilities are many
For now it’s unknown
But I expect something funny
During this pause in life
I let the wind’s ardor in
Penetrating deep like a knife
Careless to realize it’s a sin
Two beings acting as one
Forever in a still moment
Ending the timeless fun
Although words were barely spoken
Wind handled with care
Yet I crave more
Let’s do it again, I dare
Aiming slowly not in a tore.
This poem is about a man named Salvatore. I was day dreaming about a sexual encounter with him during a warm spring night. While people were walking, talking, and living, I focused on the light wind blowing as I thought of him. I named it Tore because I wanted to be subliminal to him.
Stanza 1- I feel the air around. I think of the night and the amount of time before the act. I didn’t expect a thing but I was interested, noticing the start of the attraction or “clinging” on to him
Stanza 2- i vision this while I hear the wind blow. As the wind is unnoticed so is the he. As things happen around me and him, the world starts to dim and he starts to be my focus
Stanza 3- I was curious in him. I stopped thinking and imagined the possibilities, regardless of what’s going on around me. The last line enhances the chance regardless if it goes well or not.
Stanza 4- I focus harder on this wind as I reminisce on us being alone. He notes my beauty. The third line “ you are the choice I chose” has the word choice means great. The sentence means I fully decided this is what I want. It’s meaningful because this is something I wanted & it was mutual. He responded with such passion and romance.
Stanza 5- he took things slow— which was great. I got to take in every moment. Everything came together. Although this was all great I began to have feelings making me second guess my choice.
Stanza 6- because of my mixed emotions I start to question the result of this. He makes me laugh, I know I can count on him making me smile.
Stanza 7- during this drift away from my current reality I let the “wind’s,” which is now Salvatore, passion in. As deep as a knife can get, he was in me. I didn’t care if it was a sin because it was extremely passionate
Stanza 8- we are as one. The oxymoron “forever in a still moment” & “ending the timeless fun” represents how this felt so lasting but at some point it had to end. It also represents the moment I took away from my reality to remember this moment. We barely spoke to each other but actions spoke louder.
Stanza 9-He was sensitive and made sure not to hurt. I wanted more. Now that it’s over I dare us to do it again. Tore in the last sentence means to hurry or speed up. But Tore also represents him. Contrary to the word being in his name, he aimed solely.
I never explain my poems but I wanted to paint what was in my head. This took place in the city while the encounter took place in a house. Both happened in a busy area. People around talking loud and interacting with each other. Yet we found our “wind” in each other to take a moment out of reality and focus on each other. Something I want again.
