Conquest


I was inspired this morning to write a new piece.  I hope you enjoy it!

Conquest

I want
To not be the explorer,
But the explored –
To be the land
Ravaged
Blazing new trails
into virgin territory;
Seeking veiled treasure
Hidden behind the unknown.
Making sojourn as musky heat rises –
Passion’s noon.
Skin scorched in blazing need
Seeking unattained zenith
Never before conquered.

I want to be the territory
Claimed in the name of the Empress
Lips taste salty sea-
Men’s brew…
Eyes have never gazed across this horizon before
Searching out new places to explore
She slowly caresses
contours of her claimed country
Maiden journey of discovery…

  5. There is so much sensuality in this poem… thanks for stopping by and commenting on my poem about the “hang,” or I might not have found you. To view oneself as unexplored territory leaves so much to chance, to wonder… an excellent thought, a great poem. Thanks so much, Amy

    • I’m glad that you found me. I love your writing style 🙂 ‘Listening’ to the poem with the Hang as a backdrop was awesome. Thanks so much for your comments 🙂 Keep going back into the archive … I’m sure you’ll find some gems in there 🙂

  6. Exploration into virgin territory…to be touched in ways not known…to not be the one making the journey, but to be the object of discovery…beautiful sensuality in this. Its velvet words make the heart beat faster….
