Cathedral

Her heart is a cathedral. Bright stain-glassed windows, each a story to tell. So her own story is mapped out in ink across her breast. The entrance, tall imposing doors, not easily opened with gargoyles guarding each side, lips raised in stark, snarling warning. Beware. Yet, if you simply step past them, you’d find they […]

He Makes Me Beautiful

When he lays me back Strips all my clothes away Stares with desire I feel beautiful When his lips and teeth Devour all my dips and curves Peaks and valleys I feel beautiful When his fingertips Trace my lines My scars, my stories I feel beautiful When he tenderly Brushes my hair aside Exposing my […]

Phoenix Rising – Prologue

I arrived late for the conference, an oversight on my part in regards to timing the commute, traffic, and parking. Who am I kidding? I’m always late. But better late than never right?
