Erosion

I hold memories of you like a wave-worn rock nestled in my pocket reaching in deep my fingers float along your soft edges the gentle curves of who you were who I remember you to be who we once were I feel your weight there touching you I hold that ache again the fervent ache […]

Memory Beaches

my lips sigh as the water slowly slips through black grains of sand how I long to feel your caress even as the waves gently lap my feet your red lips quivered when my thumb stroked you there an intake of breath and your eyes sparkled before softly closing I remember your quiet hum of […]

Afterthoughts

my face silently slips beneath the jagged waves moonlight accents edge peaks and valleys and I’m no longer fighting it releasing my final breath I’m floating softly in this cold new world sinking down into the vast depths I look above to see the gentle beams reflections of some far off light sifting through the […]

The Woman in the Mirror

“Tomorrow,” she thought to herself. “Tomorrow is a new day.” She turned and viewed her backside in the mirror again. Definitely her best side. Turning forward again, she lifted her breasts where a woman twenty-five years her junior would have them. Too big, too saggy. Her eyes lifted to her face, the creases of time […]

Morning After

Voices call and sometimes I answer Feel the cold blade How it beckons, longs To stretch across my skin Bright red ribbons Becoming darker, thicker Hot, wet, wonderful Freak! Freak! Freak! They shout into my greedy ear That’s not normal! But oh how lovely it is Stroke upon stroke A better brush and canvas An […]

Passing Fancy

how quickly I faded from your memories from your every day how my touch turned to echoes tiptoeing across your skin yet I can still recall in great detail your sexy voice in my ear details and expletives spilling upon our sheets I can still feel you between my thighs branding your name there using […]

Brain Infection

Dripping tar slid from glassy blues Sliding down unwashed cheeks Radiating infection as it goes Oozing Draining Permeating Filling the cracks and crevices That life had hollowed out With salt-flavored goo Covering over Spreading Pull away quick Don’t touch or you’ll get it too Eyes down Lungs dry Deep wracking breaths Shudder and sigh Desecration […]

Memories in Withdrawal

When they placed him in my arms, he weighed nothing at all I didn’t even know how to hold him The moment I looked into his face, I felt something burst and bloom in my heart Something I had never felt before and never have since Even today I feel the tug of his existence […]
