Of Love and Lust/Scott Thomas Outlar

Our newest featured poem ‘Of Love and Lust’ is courtesy of Scott Thomas Outlar and features in Eye Flash’s new pocket poetry pamphlet ‘The Heart’. Scott’s poem, like the rest of the pamphlet, do not delve into the subject of the heart with rose coloured spectacles, instead, ripping into the flesh and bone of the subject and laying it out for all the see. If you’re tired of the status quo when it comes to poems from the heart, then read on.

Of Love and Lust

       eager and wanton

primal

these spells catch fire

a first hint
of love

its electric tendrils igniting
your body
my body

our bodies are magnetic

a last gasp
of lust

its rivers raging
flooding
overflowing

desire has run dry
