freja-beha-erichsen-by-moussy-spring-2011-campaignAmber used to be a color
something from frankincense bible
a captured piece of the past
coated in sticky prison
wait for me to catch you
maybe we are caught in time
like sticky insects rubbing legs
I’m chasing your long legs into sounding shadows
amber was not the smell
of you opening yourself
to my low entreaty
leave me to run myself wild over
your freckled skin and tanned cheeks
It doesn’t matter how far
wait for me to catch you
my hands and your long hair loose
amber was not the liquid
honey mounting your urge
in my mouth
making ourselves sore on rhythm
we are jarring our cries for jam
wait for me to catch you
unbuttoned in savage grace
amber was not a gentle
rain of longing spilling
over my lips
clasping your laughter to my own
skipping in each thin wish bone
wait for me to catch you
surfaces falling away to expose
amber was a faraway thing
before you became the echoing girl
with honey colored hair
chasing my blushes with your narrow hips
between your thighs releasing
the past and future of all
rebuking color
changing behind movement
like a slow melting
amber sun rise

      1. Likely. And, beauty is different to everyone so there’s as many descriptions as there are people, I suppose. But, you’re writing? Empirically beautiful. 😊

          1. True. Though I’m not sure someone could truly convey all that sex is and feels like to someone who’s never experienced it. But, like you said, it can be hinted at. I’m glad there are talented writers, such as yourself, who are adept at description in vivid ways. Words are very powerful.

  1. I was going to quote one line that I loved but then I continue reading and I would have to quote the whole thing. I am saving to get your book by the way. And soon I will get it autograph by you

  2. Candice, beautifully stroked my dear. I love your play between the sensual and the sensuous. I have missed your poetry and this is an exquisite one to return to. Amber is rising on my list of favorite colors! Keith

    1. Wine will have that effect eventually πŸ˜‰ (so last night I was thinking about other classics, I wasn’t overly keen on Last Tango were you? Dunno why just didn’t work maybe because he was so gross by then?)

      1. Agreed! Last Tango left me cold. The fact he was so gross by then is a factor but I don’t think it was the only one. I think, for me, there was a certain…vibe exuding…control in some way? Or something unsavoury of the kind, I don’t know.

        1. Especially after I heard they raped the (actress) in real life, it didn’t surprise me, there was something dark and wrong about the vibe of that film yet it was so successful. I’d like to see another film done in the style of 9 and a half weeks, there really hasn’t been one that good since or before.

          1. Yes exactly!! I wasn’t surprised either when I heard!
            And yes, there should be! Obviously Mickey Rourke can’t be in it but I’m sure they could find someone as scrumptious (I thought he was then)
            Did you see Wild Orchid? Totally not in the same league.

          2. Yeah Claire Otis. She makes most actresses look good, she’s so wooden she could make furniture. What the fuck happened to Rourke he turned RANK and he used to be a right lil pouter. Ah well. If I had the energy I’d make a really hot movie, because needs must! Most of the stuff now doesn’t seem so sexy it’s too obvious. And the soundtrack isn’t badass

          3. Yeah she was awful wasn’t she? We should really think about writing a screenplay…except since I know absolutely nobody in the film business, it’d have no chance to get off the ground

          4. The irony is I used to work in the film business but burned out quick because I couldn’t handle the pressure and the pretention and competition. I’m not competitive at all which means I usually fail – ha ha! Anyway … my first degree I studied film and wanted to be a director (stupid dreams) so I’m totally down for that, damn I wish. Actually I was vaguely thinking of moving back if I did I’d probably be near your neck of the woods so it’s not like it’s an imposibility, like I always say, the wrong people have money and the right people have ideas and no where to express them. We’d do a bad-ass film I just know it.

          5. I’m so in awe of you. You’ve done everything. Or it seems like it anyway. And omfg if you did move here, that would be the most amazing thing! People around me would be jealous as hell. Apparently, I already start too many of my sentences with “Candice said…”
            The other day, I got interrupted mid flow with : “let me guess, Candice said?”…and I laughed because I haven’t even met you and my family and friends hear about you all the time. It’s crazy, right?

          6. Na honestly I haven’t and I let myself down a lot with what I am capable of and what I just can’t do because of a mental block. The whole introvert thingie, that’s another reason jobs like that didn’t really work for me. Oh shit well if I have that kinda rep I’d better come with a different name and at least one dragon πŸ˜‰ No it’s not cray it’s the connection that’s so rare as to be damn miraculous xo
