The Writer's Voice

The World's Favourite Literary Website

Back and Forth


Kirsten Sorensen

Trepidation, well bred
at the moments when
my virtue sleeps. 
you're agreeably twisted 
in my hollow 
fanatical motion. 
Ah, my contrary adoration.

To melt, this ebb
and change - it'll 
come again. 

Yesterday so raspy 
mauve, now
a little green
perhaps? Once
a menace, I see
my hold is patronized. 
No, stop, 'tis
a plateau.

Leave me, let
me sleep.

You're an imperfection
in wait, my dear.
