I curl and shrink until I fit perfectly in the palm of your hand lift me cradle me tuck me between your ribs you are my warm cocoon a shower of gentle yet fierce love there’s no denying you have every part of me and now I grow tara caribou | ©2020 Read this and […]

Star-Crossed Tongues

Effortlessly you slide deep inside After signing your name All along my curled edges I sigh I taste your essence On my tongue That which is truly you Your profane mind Coating your wicked mouth I’m thirsty, ravenous I want more But now you’ve pushed inside me And I’m overwhelmed Exceedingly so Full of your […]

Heart-Shaped Puzzle

Painted cheeks and a fistful of tokens Girly giggles tugging daddy’s hand with Cotton candy fingers Screaming horses stampeding past Wearing saddles of red and blue A trumpeting elephant, trunk held high The giant white rooster’s purple saddle Garish music begins slowly Building in tempo and volume Smudged faces racing past Gripping striped poles Covered […]

System Failure

I’d like to replace my heart the latest model available using dials and numbers cogs and wires a cold calculating machine all the hurts, disappointments unable to penetrate the reality that is me input, output facts and observations be it love or pass-me-by would I still remain untouched? >input received: you’re sweet 01001110 01101111 <false> […]
