Ink and Feels

“Writing is nothing more than a guided dream.” ~ Jorge Luis Borges

.
I’ve stolen dreamed words
out of Borges’ mouth
and written us on my skin.

In the book of us,
your words are drummed to song
I dance into ink and feels;

there (in the wicked wild)
I am verse with you,
there (in flawless chaos) I
become your curiosity,
there (words are always
made of you and me)
quieted only by kisses.

Remember that kiss,
the one that lasted until you knew
the flavor of my mouth by heart?
I felt it, during a dance
of flesh and soul,
while my eyes sipped a mountain
of snow and summer and you.

I’ve stolen words
out of a book of peace and hope,
and popped them into my mouth

while the world watched
and smiled
happily, seeing me

being me… with you.

  1. Oh, this poem is a feast of delicacies, and the good thing about this feast is that it doesn’t need to be savored because I can keep tasting it again and again, sometimes greedily and quickly, and sometimes slowly savoring. I *love* the last seven lines.

  2. Oh how I love this, Magaly!❤️ There is such an incredible amount of fire and passion in these lines; “Remember that kiss, the one that lasted until you knew the flavor of my mouth by heart? I felt it, during a dance of flesh and soul, while my eyes sipped a mountain of snow and summer and you” sigh.. you redefine love and do it to perfection! Beautifully penned!❤️

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

    • Borges and Campbell tend to make every negative day a bit less so. Or, at least, their writings and research are very good at giving us the tools to make things positive for ourselves. Love them.

  4. So much love and hope and happiness in this piece…it may be “nothing more than a guided dream” to some, but it is “envisioned reality” to me 😀 XXX

  5. There is a very dreamlike feeling to this indeed, (as love should be) and the joy and intimacy of it is refreshing in a world with little of either we don’t struggle to bring and create ourselves–I especially love “I am verse with you,…” (!!) Thanks for lifting my heart, dear Magaly.

    • Someone once said that when the world is burning our happiness, we should blow cooling kisses into the flames. All right, so it was me who said that. And I just said it right now. But that doesn’t keep it from being true, does it? 🙂

  6. I don’t know how I missed this! Oh, Magaly! This is so romantic. You have made love with these words and my eyes just orgasmed reading them. I, too, re-read it several times! Simply amazing!
