Lyric Fire: NaPoWriMo 2012 – Day 20 of 30 Poems in 30 Days – Sequestered Love

NaPoWriMo 2012 – 30 Poems in 30 Days – Day 20!

I’m super proud that I followed the poetry prompts four days this week! Today though I’m back to freelancing as this poem has been dancing around in my head for awhile. Thanks for staying engaged! I appreciate your eyes and your comments during this poetry challenge! Enjoy your coming weekend!

Sequestered Love

crushed ice

half-empty rum bottle

falling temps

roaring fire

the scent of lavender

mixed with musk


a cabin



covered in frost

insulated with heat


neglected bodies

tortured souls

many meetings here

away from the world


high powered lovers

living low

underneath the radar


heavy footsteps

pick up pace

making a crunching sound

in the hard packed snow


inhabitants inside

so far away

inside of love

no boundaries

passion makes them deaf


pounding on doors

drowned out by a squeaky bed

shrill screams and gruff moans


the apex is in sight

longing for an ending

so they can begin again

just as the fever hits


the door bursts open

the spell is broken

the scandalous secret is out


oh no!


aren’t you guys tired of each other yet?

ewww! gross!



didn’t we teach you how to knock?

how did we get blessed with such nosy children?

nervous laughter ensues

silk sheets cover exposed limbs


role play night is over

the parenthood has begun

    My dear friend…steamy passion indeed!! The ending was quite surprising I must say but very funny. Great imagination!!

  3. Oh, yes, getting that private time can be a struggle when you are a parent. So deftly described right down to the embarrassment. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Keep going, Tameka!

    Thanks Martha. Glad you could relate. I don’t have children, but I can imagine being interrupted by your kids would be very embarrassing. ๐Ÿ˜‰
