Captured

I like to include a woman's perspective on the subject matters addressed in this blog, and in light of this consideration I give you this entry written by Jennifer Hester and published in the Posse's Lair, enjoy!
Not about the color of his eyes
The weight of his stare
pushed her back
pressing her will against the sheets
her eyes crushed close
an attempt to obliterate the heat

She wrote
not about his lips
the way they
pretended
to hold some shy secret
brushing temptation
pulling back
evoking her appetite
she believed starvation
would eat her alive

She wrote
not about the battles they repeated
with wet skin
fire
fingers clasped and limbs
entwined
Their warrior cries and
hushed urgings
the inevitability of death
a quiet relief that held
only until
war was incited once more

What she did write
the sadness
the annihilation of reason
that completely devoured her head
How unreasonably
her ego
stood down
refusing to protect her
banished to the emotional
unable to
talk herself out of his charms

I suppose this is the reason
she didn't want to write
