Trifextra: Week 102/Simmer

Welcome Trifectans
This week they are asking for 33 of our own words about love gone wrong, but we can't use the following words. love
sad
tears
wept
heart
pain
Now this is a Challenge!


     Simmer

The remembered embers
 of your touch
 Simmers underneath
my skin.

Its difficult to control
 this slow and steady burn.

 This ache of  starving
for you arises.  

How utterly  delicious
your simmered meat.

Thank you... and if you want to join check out Trifecta

  11. Glynis, this is freakin' awesome! I did not see that end coming. I love how you started with the hunger for an ex-lover and flipped the switch to just plain hunger. Deliciously dark, my friend. Loved it!

  12. That first line overtook me Glynis. This whole piece is incredible - especially all the elements of the extended metaphor of heat. Awesome.
