Beyond the Sub-conscious

entry picture

His fingers waken running through her hair
Only pulling back when she opens her eyes
Blinkered by the yellow sunset like flowers
Dropping consciously across the windowsill
Dangling on like fingers on a balcony
Tied up in invisible chains across derelict moods
Journeying beyond invisible emotions
Streaming conscious all over the place
Like totally mis-matched kissing
Beyond the sub-conscious.

Mmm - there's nothing like running your fingers through hair. It's loving and tender or sensual and erotic, depending on the situation. Not so nice if someone with grubby hands is doing it though ;)

I like the ideas running through this.

I like the line

Journeying beyond invisible emotions

Which in this poem those fingers certainly do.
