About the Poem
To climb from the self- imposed shame of divorce, I chose to hide my heart, to allow myself time to heal - I did not realize that it was my heart that needed to be reborn, not hidden.
Then I met her, forbidden by society, yet she called to me, to my heart, asked me to waken myself - to be honest in my heart's desire - she helped me remove the fear, to heal the scars I'd used as a shield for too long.
She helped me to understand, that desire is not a sin.

The Whisperings On Val'eve
|by Tony Harmon
For longer than a taste
- or two,
I will linger;
Lips against lips,
softly against soft.
I will linger
- my prison,
visions of sweetness,
of sweat, of lust;
promisings of ecstasy’s sin
to flower upon my decadent hunger.
- circles across my tongue,
awakening and arousing whispers auctioned
in the throes of passions;
drink until my appetite is laid bare
for a moment or two.
Command my civility
- my shadow, my touch,
- my every secret;
into words spoken as prayer,
into words cried
in breaths of consummation.
- as my own is wondered well,
countless times stabs and penetrates
the beast beyond the shatterings of humanity descent
into the salvation of the truth of desire.
