Four AM

It’s four AM again and I can’t sleep I didn’t hear your voice again last night. I turn and fluff my pillow, tug the sheets resist the urge to reach up for the light. The morning sky is damp and gray It’s raining, yet another day and really, can I feel this way, all stuffed […]

Devour Me

I know where to touch you As fingers incite follicles And warm sweet breath invites a tender kiss. And so familiar is this place where, moist and musky, you succumb eyes closed so you won’t see my face. How dangerous to meet your eyes And shiver when they touch that place. Oh yes, I could […]

Submission

Tidying the crumpled mass of white, Disarray attesting frenzied heat, Morning mood more somber than last night, Alone after another fast retreat. Our crucial choice invoked by meager time, Synergic dancing tongues or soulful eyes, Submitting to the pull of that most prime, Followed by uncomfortable goodbyes. Patiently, I hope you’ll meet my stare, Answering […]

Estranged

Lying beside you in the gloaming, So natural to roll over and bury my face under the shadow of your darkening profile, lifting my heart on your dizzying scent. I have to fight the urge, lest I forget that I can’t do that anymore. My head no longer welcome on your chest, my fingers hungry […]

Attempting Temperance

Attempting temperance. Suppressing sudden impulse to send fingertips or quivering lips usurping warmth from flesh of neck. Embarrassment as ardor jumps the gate and loving arms encircle from the back accepting that you won’t reciprocate.

The Couple

Young eyes reflect a battle weary soul. They gaze from shadowed sockets, parchment skin stretched over skeletal visage. He holds her hand, her gnarled knuckles laced within his plump brown digits, as she rests her head upon his shoulder. Standing on the train, I wonder what afflicts her. Almost dead, she sits beside him. Trying […]

Promise Me

Please promise me you’ll never promise me. No crueler master can there be than hope. It lingers and invites seductively my desperate hand upon it’s safety rope. Too many times I’ve grasped a tempting line and fallen, holding hemp that’s torn and frayed, recovered to a footing truly mine, and gathered up my strength, while […]

Gusty Lover

His icy fingers, grazing cheeks, brutally toss my hair about my face. Whipping open my coat, he seeks to grasp my naked limbs in harsh embrace. Clutching my clothes around my frame, I march on disregarding every gust. Too risky now to play his game and chance my fragile poise to winter lust.

Adrift

I need to cast myself adrift again, Let go the tether holding me to you, That faintest hope that you’ll remember when Nothing else existed but we two. For long before you hoisted your first sail, Before my first three-wheeler cycle ride, Our souls, connected, without much travail Soared across the heavens side by side. […]

Free Fall

Trembling tongues tentatively touch through parted velvet lips. Luscious, liquid body falling, falling, falling into you.
