Rash's Poetry House

Candles Shimmered in the Darkened Room

With him she reached
only hinted
only a dream
of passion --
of desire --
forever unattainable
the myth that never
comes true --
a willingness to serve
his needs
wanting his pleasure
more than her own
and in return
fulfill hers

Her skin burned
in the afterglow
of his attentions,
a warm tingling --
lulling her to unwillingness
to leave the space
in which she found
the one sought so long --
and she feared
lest in the telling
she might lose
all she had desired

There are no happy-
ever-afters, but she
this one

It was not logical --

It was a dream of a prince
in a foreign land

It was a night
when candles
in a darkened room
and the afterglow
a lifetime


Candles lit in the darkened room
Candles shimmering to light a dark room

Shadow Woman
Pretend Once More
They Never Brought Flowers
Morning Desire
Dearheart, Have You Ever Understood?
Hold Me With Your Voice
The Solace of Chocolate
When the Immune System Refuses to Work
Candles Shimmered in the Darkened Room
Lillith Poems
You Have to Kiss a Lot of Frogs
