High Tide

I felt your pull and how could I fight it? Why would I? Your waves gently washed over my heart and filled all the tidepools of my soul. You brought life and fresh oxygen to my limp and lifeless hands. When your fingers slid over and around my thighs, I opened myself completely to you, […]

Wild Animals

It’s not that I really have to battle any real wild animals. I live rurally. Pretty rural. Out in the wilds of Alaska. But they’re out there… I know they are. Oh wait….: I mean honestly… this is what I primarily see. Mostly wild. I say mostly because to be honest, if they hear my […]

The Ocean’s Daughter

Oceans

an ocean rages inside me pours out in sobs and wails crashes against my ribcage drowning my heart, my soul streams of liquid heartache flow down tears constantly falling I was whole when you were in me you walked effortlessly across my stormy peaks and troughs now I’m dry on the outside parchment skin and […]
