Chemistry

Tree Of Passion by Nina Fabunmi, Acrylic on Canvas 4x2 inches in 3 panels. 2011, SOLD

When fuel met flame, a fire emerged

Whipped cream on hot chocolate

Emotions that lack commotion

Hearts beating like drums being pounded by drum sticks

Breaths cut short like an asthma attack

Attraction with no distraction

The reaction of blind passion

He undressed me with his eyeballs

Like a body under an x-ray machine

Vulnerable and at his mercy

Mutual trust that will never rust

Transfixed by his gaze upon me

Just as the moon descends on a lonely forest

And gives her sweet rest

I was lost in awe

Care mystery

Opulent stimulant

The click that turns on the light switch

When he touched me

I felt shock waves flowing through me

Like I had been bitten by an electric eel

I moved in ways I never imagined

Key in ignition

A connection that needed no correction

The speech of the unspoken

The treasure of pleasure

It was right without a fright

Like light in the night

A spark in the dark

A dog with a bark

Vehicle roaring like a raging lion

In anticipation of acceleration

We became one and begun our journey

To the never ending land of chemistry

Chasing Waterfalls

the-peace-of-a-tear-drop

My eyes are like waterfalls filled with savage emotion

The current is intense

The descent is deep and dreaded

The depths beneath so daunting

It’s dark and forlorn

Eaten up by the cold

Stinging me from within

Drowning in ache

And still the overflow is unending

I carry a weight upon me

It will never cease

I am moving from sorrow to sorrow

A heavy heart profuse with that, which plagues me

I am chasing waterfalls

I am that which I pursue

And yet I cannot escape from me
