Bare Souls, Raw Love

In my mind, I see us there. Bare souls. All the special places inside you are shaped just like me. The flavors in my mouth are found only in the bright colors of your mind. Our hands are stitched together in a pocket of wool and rainbows. This glitter in my eyes is the heavens […]

2:06am (Insomnia)

We were laying on the bed facing one another. Our breathing slowing as we had just made love and it was intense and deep. We were looking into each other’s eyes and I reached over and gently stroked down the side of your face with my fingertips. Your eyes gently closed and you had such […]
