Red Wine


Red wine,

a kiss of the vine

touches my lips.


Nighttime pours into me

like viscous liquid

and my body becomes

tart berries, dark earth, rich magic.


Familiar longing,

a kind of drunkeness,

envelops me.


I stretch my thoughts towards yours like arms

and spark upon you in the dreaming ether,

where the hands of our minds

clasp in shared fate.


You are thinking of me too, you later tell me.

Imagining penetrating

the depths of my yearning,

entering the well of my solitude, bell-shaped like a glass,

and filling me

with your presence.


In the clear dawn of morning,

wine turns to water,

dreams to day.


I go to you

and we make love.

  1. Hi,

    I love this and have enjoyed reading your poetry so far.

    I am putting together a collection of poems from both women and men about Love, relationships and dating. The book is called 7 Shades of Love based on the 7 chakras. You poems would really fit the “sacral chakra” chapter which is all about sensuality, sexuality and eroticism. I would love to include some of your poetry.

    This poetry book is designed to compliment my self-help book Mr Wrong, “a humorous and insightful exploration into why some women continually Mr Wrong and how to set out onto a positive path to Mr Right.” It is a selection of stories written by women about their relationship experiences and how they overcame the trials and tribulations of these unhealthy/unhappy relationships. It also has stories written by men and stories that celebrate happy and loving relationships. Check out my about page for more info.

    Please, if you are interested in contributing. Get in touch. For examples of my poems check out one I wrote here called Real Love. Also search for Real Love and Strong Women. Poems can be as long or short and in any format you wish.

    I look forward to hearing from you! If you are interested in getting involved, please inbox me or email me at


    D 🙂
