where the writers are
Three Names

OLIVIA

 

Pleading and

enticing,

Relinquishes to no one;

vanquished solely by my presence.

 

 

MARIA

 

Satiated only by pure love,

erotically sounded by your name.

Rituals aren’t enough and

verbosity is just too plain

Evading your touch, Maria, is my hell.

 

 

CLARISSA

 

Beneath the curls of your hair, was

ecstasy of no kind,

an experience of soulful poetry

unembellished with lies.

Though you have not the slightest affection,

You are my pain and glory.
