Tendrils of Love

a tiny seed landed held fast pushed down deep where it landed (which in this case was my heart) it (my heart, that is) was stone hard clay but that seed dropped from your soul onto mine that first glimpse of your face in my eyes you were so beautiful it was a tragedy from […]

And Now I’m Grounded

I miss your fingers tracing my ribs soft curves and divots a keyboard that released different pitches of sensation and your hand as it played up and down my spine gentle at first then added pressures and sighs I was transported high into the heavens my head a swirling galaxy of thought and emotion I […]

Suffocation

feel my weight upon you as I lift up and dip down again our tongues dancing wrapping around each other bodies slick with emotion and motion and movements more precious than rain in a desert my nails rake along your chest as yours dig into my hips I cling to you famished dying of thirst […]

Scarecrow Hotel – Collaboration

Somewhere east along Highway 37 A neon sign flashes intermittently vacancy The Scarecrow Hotel remains alone Stained threadbare carpets muffle TVs And tearful phone conversations Sixteen parking spaces yet only four filled Warm shower and a sagging bed for the night The ancient bricks lure the demented and sick Vultures eying through the windows Black […]

Bitter Pill

Come fuck me Lover Use my body like I use yours For just an hour maybe two Make me feel like a woman Like I am wanted and desired Don’t look me in the eyes I don’t want to see the truth there Just use me and Let me live this silky lie just a […]

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 […]

Scarlet Letter

Stones in my hands Coals for eyes Back ramrod straight Cardboard shoulders Stockings run Bloody knees ‘Neath a skirt torn Heft the weight Breathe deep Take aim A sobbing call for justice Memory fades out Remembering His hands upon my flesh Squeezing as I shuddered His fist in my hair pulling Exposing my throat to […]
