POEMS AND SHORT STORIES
I usually stay well within the dark, but sometimes I have been known to wax erotic.

Spoken Upon Flesh
#lust #courage #sex #lover #sensual
Unheard but spoken still.
It is said that a man's hands can
build up, and tear down.
As these hands caress the contours of
your body, desire is built and fear
is torn down.
They say that the tongue can breed division.
As my tongue divides you, my mind is drawn to togetherness.
The taste of your acceptance quenches
a thirst only known to solitary men.
Gentle sighs and deep moans spark a
hardened conviction to please you.
Your physicality and sexuality take me
to heights beyond measure,
but as I drift back to Earth, and rest ...

Love Eternal~ with the beloved crimsin
Somewhere on the edge of time
you kissed me and said goodbye.
I wept bitter tears...I knew it meant eons in exile.
I was untrue to you,
you sent me away from your thoughts,
hid your face from me.
Sent to Earth in the body of a mortal woman.
Born of weakness,
I was to learn true love
or burn out...a star never meant to be.
Time has stopped for me.
That I might taste your kiss eternal.
I weep as well, a void was left during your exile,
filled only with longing.
Open your eyes now my Queen,
cry into the...

Write into you.
I want to write myself into you.
Each pen stroke, fingers upon your skin.
My poetry, a warm breath at the nape of your neck.
Undressing you with words as we dance to rhyming stanzas.
Your walls crumbling at every line break,
entering you, I taste the writing of your story.
We flow together, a love born of art and magick.
Our cursive words unravel from the pages of our poems and weave our hearts and minds together.
Stepping into forever, we make love and poetry.
Two souls, one journey.

The safety and sorrow of a life sheltered in fantasy.
You can write away the reality,
but before the ink dries,
pain knocks at the walls of your heart,
and a grievous spirit cries.
Slipping into a self induced coma.
Wrapped in book pages and lies,
lost to fantasy that's fleeting.
Even the best dream dies.
Battling angels and demons,
the warrior without tears.
In truth your sword dulled by
heartache and fears.
So rest a while in fantasy,
but never forsake,
that a life that's worth living
is lived best while awake.

Until they find Eden.
Arms stretched wide,
constantly reaching and grasping.
Never an answer,
though forever he's asking.
Slipping the gravity,
he fell towards the sky.
Through the fingers of Atlas,
preparing to die.
Alone in the Cosmos,
she found him near Mars.
Offering her breast,
to feed him the stars.
Together now travelers,
within time and space.
for their perfect place.

Our cottage, warm and cozy, was strategically placed upon littoral land.
Sunsets and breezes breed allure, a scene deftly painted by God's hand.
A safe space where inhibitions are challenged without judgement or fear.
Where two intertwine harmoniously.
Love's light is refulgent here.
My lover so guarded, rests comfortably
within her shell, chelonian style.
While here, her walls fall like cascading drapes, and she gives me a winsome smile.
I undress her with my eyes,
and want washed over me tout de suite.
All the facets of her...

Empty eyes and candles burning,
nights grow cold while leaves are turning.
Traces of ash and altar blood,
my skin is draped in drying mud.
Ancient trees that offer learning.
Empty eyes and candles burning.
Resting 'neath my Master's wing,
listen as the demons sing.
His forest cries for sacrifice.
The roots below are cold as ice.
Empty eyes and candles burning,
feed the beast to sate it's yearning.
Sweet stench of burnt flesh filled the air.
A screaming crowd of no one there.
Gift for the dark one's...

Love and Poetry
You make love to me
with your poetry.
Writing the loneliness off the pages
of my life.
As dry parchment drinks the flowing pigments, so do I absorb your
thoughts and dreams.
I rest in the margins, caressing your
rhymes, I'm aroused by the flowing
I reached out to you with words,
you answered in kind. We closed our
eyes and leapt from the page, to meet
in our dreams intertwined.
We made love with

I died again today.
I died again today.
Standing in the city square,
losing time and unaware
of the simple fact,
I can't turn back,
and no one knows I'm there.
No funeral for me.
From within the crowd
I scream out loud,
still someone you won't see.
To a lonely song I sway.
The pain won't go away.
Without a tear,
I succumb to fear,
and die again today.

The X Fracture
Son of a single mother that couldn't cope.
As my rage ran wild, mom turned to dope.
One day she slit her wrists, it came a flood.
They found me finger painting in the blood.
Sacrifice sanity upon the altar
A thirst from childhood, animals no longer quench.
Succumbing to demonic voices because
Blinded by the arousal of the stench.
Life taught me that everyone runs away.
Only ropes and cords will make them stay.
Never been about the amount of blood I spill.
Watching you suffer is the biggest...

reeds on river sway
at the whim of Autumn's breeze
