Masterpiece of Us

I want to write words that paint the most perfect picture One that would show you exactly who I am Who you are What we could be together I want it perfectly drawn what I am without you And then again Who I become when your light is added to my darkness There would be […]

Softly Spoken Moments

Waking up in the middle of the night Climbing on top of him Neither of us fully awake I ride him, hitting all those perfect places Letting myself flow over him Run down his hard length All I want is to feel his release That small space of time in shared bliss And then I […]

In this era, walking this world, we have erroneously come to the conclusion that we need everything and we need it now. Where has patience gone? Where has peace fled to? Where is our human compassion and mercy? Examining my own self, I know what I desire. I have hopes and dreams too. Some I […]
