A Dry Word from the Thirsty Gentleman by the Bar

I don’t want to

burden you

with overflowing

echoes of my emptiness,

but if your efflorescence

yearns for my warmth,

I’ll fill you with

my want

until

we’re both spilled,

replenished,

wrung.

But if

your echoed thirst

is misread

please enjoy this free drink.

Written for dVerse’s Quadrille #32, hosted by De Jackson, aka WhimsyGizmo. The wordplay of the day is echo.

When most of us think of the word echo, haunting, wistful imagery tends to come to mind. I wanted to try finding a silly counterbeat.
