One Word At A Time

And so we begin this affair of the soul-blown heart. Words written long ago, long before the meaning was fully known. Embedded now in flesh that once was stone we rise and seek its very taste. Its gentle ways caressing, lighting the path before us. Illuminating hidden signs like a beautiful star kissing the precious […]

Tendrils of Home

Your fingers brush against my skin as you gently gather my hair and move it away from my neck. I shiver. I sigh. Inside I’m humming, anticipation for your next touch.

I am covered in anguish and measured lines. I am tracing and repeating and inward mind. I am troubled of spirit and a passionate desire. […]

Vow of Silence

Silence surrounds me Smoke curling out my nostrils Inhaling your words Left me breathless No matter They are oxygen to my lungs Slipping my fingers lower I’ll write your name there Just like I’ll use my tongue To sign my name along your thighs There’s poetry written across your clavicle And beneath my breasts Hushed […]
