Mad pleasures

The tender movement of goosebumps
To the winking awakening of my flesh
The bad itch of I will not surrender yet
Funny how itchy chooses a place

An urgent sensation I never invented
Oh the thrill of mad mad gratification
Madness out in a perfect sneeze yes
For the next irrational swelling.

  1. Bula Nomzi, I enjoy your poems particularly this one. Thank you for following my blog; I greatly appreciate it and look forward to more of your bits on life. ๐Ÿ™‚


    1. Hello Siteri. You are most welcome. Does Bula mean hello? What language is it? I appreciate your visit and encouraging words. Enjoy the rest of your week. ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. This one took my tongue away. The lines lend themselves to multiple readings and divergent decoding, the theme universal and the crafting very suggestive and all very deliberate. Me likey!


  3. Are you writing about the universal “itch” or something more intimate? Either way, you’ve got me scratching! ๐Ÿ˜‰


    1. Hello love, I am well. Grey days in-between work too. Yes, a grey day that finds me peaceful. It is what it is. Somehow not enough hours in a day though. ๐Ÿ˜€ How are you doing? ๐Ÿ™‚
