I Love You, But

You always chose the most inopportune time to use your razor, cutting, broken edge, serrated shred. Words that slice deeply, creating wounds that never heal, seeping, scabs that never form. That was the night I decided, standing naked, exposed...

Will You Forget Me

Smiles mile wide beseech Miles between now breached Hands clasp entreating and true  Arms enfold to hold anew Lips that yearn meet their match Bodies entwined soon dispatch

Bonny Bunny

I will spring to you come spring.
 Where the garden grows covering the balcony.
 To the vines that clamber and climb. 
I am coming home to you. 

I will bound to you like the bonny bunny.
Where I'll hop and flop and circle your feet.
 To hug and ...

Patterned Precision

Your skin, soft and smooth,
 Tastes sweet beneath my tongue,
 Like vine ripened grapes.

 You watch as I trail it along your body,
Leaving it's glistening path behind,
 Miniature mountain tops forming in it's wake.

 You shudder like the trees,

Rhyme In Time

I write and sing of love, of loss, of never ending pain I rhyme in time, infinite keys to climb, to invigorate your forebrain. But to write in prose of life's repose, seems more feeling in a sense, An artful semblance of linguistic forms withou...

You Knead Me

Your allure pulls me in like the moon pulls the oceans tides. In perfect alignment with one another as is the Sun, Moon and Earth. You are my moon, I am your sea. I gravitate toward your unmistakable duende under nature's night light. The man of ...

Love’s Gallop (etheree)

The Desire Betwixt us Is a double Edged sword cutting through The air without any Resistance as it quickly And swiftly sunders the shackles Of inhibition allowing our Love to gallop freely between our souls

The Poem We Have Become

Moonbeams danced in the night, lighting the darkest shadows of our hearts. Her words, sweet as the juice of a tree ripened orange, were etched into my mind. I craved her lips pressed firmly against mine, burning like the wax of a hundred candles....

World at war

Fight harder, fight longer. Achieve the national desire. Kill without mercy, hoist the flag even higher. More lamb to the slaughter, while the grim nooks and crannies of a bunker are filled with laughter. The elite sits in calm, sheltered from the...

Bring Me Your Pain

I have crossed the waters of time I have sailed upon newborn skies I have seen, I have touched, I have tasted I have searched, I have loved, I have lost So bring me your pain and your hurt Lay it before me like silken sashes at a Persian Bazaar T...

Your Inflorescence

You are my Ocahui Blooming every century I am providential, able to witness your blossoms only once in my lifetime You have crumbled my parapet Left it in ruins at my feet Leaving me defenseless, void of strength to refuse your luxuriate desire ...
