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 […]

Snakebite

And now I see There’s venom dripping from your slick tongue Oh, that same tongue I loved to suck on The one that first invaded my dreams Which danced before my watering eyes The one I spread myself wide open for That tongue which wrapped itself expertly Around all the delicious parts of me Curling […]

Do You See?
