Unknown Me – poem by Fiona Dye

FIONA DYE

Unknown Me

 

We kiss when there is no-one else to see

Words saying less than each stray, panting moan

Outside myself, I fear this unknown me.

 

Your hands invade and claim new territory.

Your arms, a vice, your hips entice me home

We kiss when there is no-one else to see

 

Our lips confess the sinners we will be

Our conscience lies, completely overthrown

Outside myself, I fear this unknown me

 

A sugar rush creates dependency

A hunger briefly sated, never gone

We kiss when there is no-one else to see

 

Shirt, jumper, skirt, are lifted hastily

Replaced more quickly still when we are done

Outside myself, I fear this unknown me

 

I close my eyes imagine you are free

Desire has swept me to this shore alone

We kiss when there is no-one else to see

Outside myself, I fear this unknown me

 

 

 

Unknown Me by Fiona Dye received a special mention in the Sentinel Literary Quarterly Poetry Competition (May 2018) judged by Derek Adams.
