The Longing
The longing beckons, impatiently awaiting
with promises of bittersweet seduction.

It is my consort, whose malefic fingers
casually fondle my breast,
while softly crooning love songs in my ear.
I could easily tumble into endless chasms,
where its dark embrace wraps around me like
silk sheets with lingering scentsedi of spent passion.

Take this longing, dredge it up from the recesses
of my soul as a sacrifice to the light.
Perform the ceremonial exorcism
that will free me of this tainted possession.
Lay it upon the altar, pierce its heart
with a clean blade, and cast it into the fire.
As smoke rises from ashes, so shall I.

I like the shades of love, of questioning, of rejection and overcoming.

The lines are fierce and penetrating. Metaphors like - ceremonial exorcism, malefic fingers,

tainted possession, bittersweet seduction speak loud and deeply too.

Great work J.

Congratulations on winning a Featured Poem Award Jody.

Comment By: FreeRoger Bacon on August 6, 2007 11:13:01 AM Report
Yep.  Congrats on your award!
Comment By: FreeJames Thomas Whitworth on August 6, 2007 03:27:52 AM Report
This was, as ever,  a certainty. Even before you posted, this had winner all over it. In fact, if you read between the lines of this one, that is exactly what it says: "This is a featured poem". That, and "I'm pretty, give me money".

Well done, pet.

Can anyone say cliché? For those who can, congratulations. Now get out because this is not the place for the likes of you.
This is a unique a piece as I have read in a while on here. I certainly do not get such things as "the lingering scent of spent passion" from anybody else. That there would be trouble if I did is beside the point.
In such a time when there is nothing new under the sun, it is the mark of the poet to find a voice to relate new meaning rather than to search vainly for a central idea, and, while the theme of this may be universal, the execution is singular.

I could not be prouder of you.

There is no death for the unborn

no pleasure

no pain

for the numb.

There is no ledge for them to climb on

Their falling

Their failing

Their done.


it's better to long and long than never to long at all... for some reason I don't believe this is about love.


I really liked this piece.

This is so you, it is not even funny...  Beautifully, and as Michael said, skillfully written.  A perfect example of your talent my J.

This is beautiful, Sorceress, I love what you have created here. As always your ability ot weave such vivid images of abstract concepts amazes me. I think this poem is truely wonderful.
I love the passion of this peice, and the twist of perspective half way works perfectly. Changing darkness into light and an internal strugal into a physical release... A beautiful idea.
Love, D.

Comment By: FreeWide Awake on June 8, 2007 09:49:18 AM Report
Loved this! :o)

Comment By: FreeWide Awake on June 8, 2007 09:48:41 AM Report
WONDERFUL Ms.Sorceress!

Wonderfully written piece of profound wisdom...

How to quelch temptation unbidden...

You wove the seduction so poignantly,
and admonished the unbidden so inarguably...

Excellent use of words as well~

Bravissima! :o)

Pretty heavy-duty stuff, Aces.. I love this..

"Take this longing, dredge it up from the recesses
of my soul as a sacrifice to the light.
Perform the ceremonial exorcism
that will free me of this tainted possession.
Lay it upon the altar, pierce its heart
with a clean blade, and cast it into the fire.
As smoke rises from ashes, so shall I.

It's amazing how mere words, comprised of mere letters can evoke such strong and passionate imagery..This is PRO, darlin'...yereverlovinfurrball
