Play My Soft Love Notes

Soft strings you’ve stroked  
Inscribing love notes all over my tender flesh like an instrument of your preference  
I hear the sweetest melody of your soul playing in the distance wind  
The crescendo of alluring whispers, I come unto, weakening in the height, I befall  
Within the recess of my mind  

I taste the forgotten passion that once dripped from the cathedral of your lips  
My temple you knelt upon  
Dividing the ingress, sanctioning my spirit  
Comforted in the calling as we frolicked in the offering of midnight’s glory  

Closing my eyes, the sync of heartbeats, I feel  
The pulse of absence I hear, leaving me breathless, spent in the need  
Reminisce of a time of you and I  
Enthralled by the overtures of each breathless touch  
Casted upon my skin ever so slowly, as our souls blend  
 
Falling under grace the signature of promises, set me free  
Worshipped my body in the baptism of your soul  
In the depth of surrendering, purifying me with sacrifices as we partook in the commencement  
 
We loved in the center of time’s foundation  
The rings of infinity entrapped tender emotions of our alliance  
Us, was ordained written above the illumination of the stars  
Heaven you came unto me like a raging thunderstorm  
 
Pouring the crux of your soul  
Purifying me  
The silence of asunder echoes in its beautiful awakening  
Playing my soft love notes  
One beat at a time  
I hear the sweetest melody of your soul playing on the softest breeze  
of forevermore

Within You

Skin flavory scented as soft petal’s dew
My lady love I harken unto the tune of your silken persona    
Your smile soothes my mind
Relief I escape deep inside you  
   
I tenderly embrace your stalwart being  
The gleam radiating  from the chasm of your soul    
Stretches beyond the measurement of infinity  
I lose myself within the calling of your heart’s serenade    
   
In your eyes resides  
The doorway to earth's sweetest promises    
Coating my existence    
Like the warmth of the sun    
   
Alluring you to feast upon the unspoken taste of ruby red lips  
Begging in remembrance for my honey dripping kisses  
The beautiful astute of your heart echoes in the wind    
When you took my hand  
   
You reverberated the foundation of my world    
In the vow of destiny my hands on you softy dance  
Close your eyes, feel me in the hereafter  
As you engrave the swing of your soul in the rhythmic cadence of mine

Lone Spinster

Proud
enthusiastic wind  
sweeps
white feather  
a lone spinster,
of downey fluff
avoids debris
resisted
 
Sail on  
the eddy, spiral
motion, soars
to heights
out of reach
out of
sight
 
Laconic, carefree  
sinks, slowly
horizontal
wave
vagrant amongst
leaves, that fall 
 
Catch, froward
torrent menacious
ill regard  
to the pacing 
of the east wind
 
Rest now, 
soothing  descent,  
gathers
freely with spent 
petals 
of Lady Banks
Rose 
 
Fragrant cloudless
sky smiles 
to  white feather 
lone spinster

What the funk? (blues & jazz)

 
     
     
my heart's desire...      
she beats a mean beat;      
every pound in my chest      
is another secret that reverberates      
a cacophony of beating pitter patter      
becomes a heartbeat of a jazz infused      
swing-styled scatting scatter      
another beat~ Billie Holiday croons      
still another ~ Armstrong's cornet looms      
pulse quickens in innocent shivers      
whilst Thelonious Monk's piano delivers      
or Miles Davis to lead a swing band      
as his trumpet is blowing jams      
The beating becomes incessant      
like the stylings of Coltrane or George Clinton
with a P-Funk - only kinda rhythm
My innermost soundtrack
of jazzy blues, funky, fuck fusion
Songs that beat or grind every other beat,  
a certain groove and funk
from one desperate beating heart to another
in an amused, free abandonment of
love, sex, desire, pain
that spills forth and is accentuated  
by a very particular brand
of love with no shame
 
I am your 45 minute sweaty jazz fuck fusion.      
     
....

Monk ( don`t blame me)

Figures somehow coloured, just the hammer on the strings  
the tinting of the phrases, a spread of darkened wings  
offset shine, like rapids falling slowly, fast all intertwined  
the order unarranged, will ever stay, sublime  

Inhabiting one's soul, with echoes of discord  
and never missed a sharp of flat  
arguments, the undertow that edged the pointed sword  
to stay or just to leave, the message in each tap  
 
I was waiting for a chorus, but there was no relapse  
hope, like the ring upon his finger shone  
a soloist upon a stool, the cord of love was snapped  
for blamelessness, cant play one hand alone  
 
For in both hands the relishes  
the reason to be born  
sad melodies, drive your spirits. was it selflessness?  
a message, listening to you perform

TOWARDS THE NEXT LINE OF TRUTH

TOWARDS THE NEXT LINE OF TRUTH

Truth tickling the keys of reality
opening up the next entrance of entrancing
dancing fingers flying towards the next
escapade flowing in a reality serenade
SENT OUT IN TRUTH
upon all who happens to listen
at the glistening notes, slappin' and gliding
upon the sliding songbirds of past life and youth
TOWARDS THE NEXT LINE OF TRUTH

Yearning to Write

 
Here
Sitting on the floor
Legs criss-cross
For a second it all feels like a memory
A perfect weaving of kinetic harmony
Remembering a time never lived and only longed

The notes and chords resonate like words
From the soul
An extension of the self through fingers
Like aural brush strokes on ivory
Each one painting vivid tones
Vibrating
Awakening the senses

I’ve been here before
In love
Yearning to write and muse
The moods
The timbres and the hues
Each one calling me back
To an era before my time
Expressing the melancholy
That strays away
