Love Elemental

How could I fully explain the burning desire I have for you? Could I paint a scorching picture that would nearly singe your fingertips? Or weave fiery hot lyrics complete with a feverish tempo? Perhaps send you heated passionate photographs enough to raise your temperature? What would it take to perfectly describe the wet, wanting […]

Dreams and Little Secrets

your soft honeyed lips whispered little secrets and sweet lies my ears stretched and strained longing for more my heart knew better still I ached musical lyrics or lines of poetry I listened wishing each word was true was meant for me I inclined myself to you hoping dreaming one day lies would become truth […]

Worthless Trash

you deleted me from your life so easily as if I meant absolutely nothing the softly spoken words the whispers and sighs the groanings and aching the dreams and realities erased dropped for someone better or more beautiful perhaps a clearer voice or a wider smile I can’t really say all I know is that […]

Little Reminders

Fading out Memories Whitewashed Sterilized and bleached Shelved and labeled Photographs yellowing Slip from distracted fingertips Rivers dried leave sandy beds Words quiver then still History becomes history Novelty, routine No longer special Or unique Not a glowing star Illumination dimming The truth hurts But at least it is The Truth Little reminders of who […]

In His Eyes

Sun blossoms in her hair Remind him of summer gardens And rippling crystalline creeks Her lips need no false color Her skin no extra adornment In his eyes She is naturally gorgeous tara caribou | ©️2019

Would You?

would you cherish my beating soul? would you cherish my artist’s hand? you’re everything to me would you watch me finger myself? would you watch me shake and dance? I’m filled with visions of us would you taste my so-soft lips? would you taste my heady love? you’re more than I could hope for would […]
