An art school dropout from 1970. I am an accidental poet who has been writing for about 4 years. This is the 3rd profile I have done as I inadvertently deleted the first one and the 2nd was no longer relevant.Not to worry, it was time for an update and this explains the reasons. Originally I only performed at one open mic but now I read at as many as I can manage and still stay married. Things are changing in my poetry world. I have been invited to be guest poet at quite a number of venues over the 4 years I have been performing. My collaboration with my mate John 'Blackneck' Matthews was a brilliant time and fulfilled an urge I had to fuse spoken word with music, these days John is busy trying to make a living as a musician, so our collaboration is on the back burner as he will never be rich with a poet as a partner. (heh, heh)
SUBLIMINAL. As you step out of the shower My senses devour Every aspect of you. My thoughts are subliminal, Subliminally criminal. And I want you. I watch you dripping, My morals slipping. And I want you. When I see your perfect face Commanding the space Where my criminal, Subliminal thoughts ache to be. I want you. They flicker and flash, Career and clash, As you flick your hair. And I wish I was there. Holding you. My eyes are hungry for more, Glancing through a crack in the door. And I want to be with you. Showing flashes of skin As you dry yourself down is a sin. I want you. I have thoughts without thinking. I feel drunk without drinking. Waiting for you, wanting you, loving you. You come into the room, and sit on the bed. Now subliminal desire is filling my head. So, I reach over and touch you. I reach over and clutch you to my chest. And I want you. You feel soft to my touch. I want you so much. And I take you, no need to make you respond. We make love on the floor. And I want you even more. Your body still dripping, Two skins slipping, four arms gripping in desire. As passion unwinds. Our bodies entwine After the desire has dissipated. When the passion is sated. I still want you. Forever. © By: - Pete Slater. 2013.
