entangle my spirit and caress my mind
seduce my body and make me yours
seal what is yours for eternity
make me yours and rapture me in your spirit
take my freedom, take my love, take me
take me for what I am and cherish me for what I am to become
silently stroke all of me
make me wet with only the whisper of touch
take me in your arms and say you'll love no other
interlock yourself with me naked and free
enter me as I look into your soul
feel me, feel all of me
from my insides stroke me
possess me I am yours

Musing on the Fae
Break away the steel and stone walls,
Find simple truth, simple release,
Rhythmic failing heartbeat,
Whitewashed world, Black and white,
Where's Nosferatu to give me the longed after curse,
Why for do the floors move beneath bare feet,
Caught in the midnight moon-tide,
Drowning in a ghostly see of milk hued liquor,
180 prof if your lucky,
This sweet surrender to a higher power,
Unfurling wings , silk to the finger tips,
Death on the lips,
Leaving behind everything , anything, all things.
Take two sips, pass the glass.
Welcome to the Wicked Wonderland.

A personal ode to absinthe,
if you don't like it.
Quite frankly I don't give a damn.

A Question, if you will.
This community is, by name, about absinthe and poetry. But is one allowed to post one's OWN poetry. For example, I have a few pieces i have written about absinthe (and the sensations) but i also have some that seem to have NOTHING to do with absinthe though i wrote them while drinking absinthe.

and does anybody know where i can get another spoon? my parents through mine out a few months ago when i moved out AGAIN.

Writerly Inspiration...or Drinking Thoughts
For me, my glory is but a humble ephemeral absinthe
drunk on the sly, with fear of treason
and if I drink no longer,
it is for good reason!"

- Paul Verlaine

"After the first glass,
you see things as you wish they were.
After the second, you see things as they are not.
Finally, you see things as they really are,
which is the most horrible thing in the world."

- Oscar Wilde

...breaking some of the silence...Rimbaud, I believe, is one of several famous poets who's use of the green fairy and fame as a poet (poete maudit, to borrow from Baudelaire and Verlaine)are linked...wish some other people would discuss or post...for if you enter into this community for the first time it seems rather empty...I've vowed to start posting about poets and absinthe...maybe there would be a larger readership if this community went to artists and poets ...for there are many artistic depictions of absinthe (for example, Degas' the absinthe drinker--a very interesting image for analysis http://www.abcgallery.com/D/degas/degas17.html)...just a thought sent out to the creator and moniters of this community...would love to see more people involved...

Is there anyone here anymore?
I'm curious about Absinthe. What is it like?

First Post
Is the moon tired? she looks so pale
Within her misty veil:
She scales the sky from east to west,
And takes no rest.

Before the coming of the night
The moon shows papery white;
Before the dawning of the day
She fades away.

~Is The Moon Tired?
Christina Rossetti~
