Variation On The Word Sleep

This poem exemplifies the deep, sincere craving to be intimate, to truly connect with another person.  It starts off as tender and wistful, in askance even, for the chance to sleep with another person.  Transcending the physical, it is a desire to tap into one’s unconscious, one’s vulnerability.  The imagery evoked in the passages, while sensual,…

Dirt Garden

For you who continues to see the good in me, who continues to see me as a broken whole, I shall continue to blossom in and for you.

Happy Once More

I thought I’d always be miserable. I thought that my past was going to haunt me until it got the best of me. And for awhile, it did. The ghosts of my past still come visit me but I find it easier to face them since you’ve come into my life. Maybe this is already…

Waking Hours

    i want to hold you in early morning when i’m not sure what day it is and how much passed of a night   with the edges of your curtain light slivering before a crack and cool air coming to tickle our feet if they are not together   the darkness becoming mere…

Escape

Darling slide out  Of your worries And bury Your heart In my lips I will slip out O f my fears And wear nothing But your touch Clutch my skin Between your Thinly veiled Smiles and we can Run away for A while

By your side

You may be cold and tired or uninspired but you’re not alone in this, when you wonder if your  thoughts ever find the person in which they were designed a chill rushes over your skin, but you’re  not alone we’re all together in our solitude.  

i am only enough because you believe i am i’ll be more for you.

Be Last

I know you’re not the first person to kiss my body and make me feel on top of the world You can only retrace lines that have already been drawn with kisses on my skin And my scent has been inhaled by quite a few before you     No, I don’t delude myself by…
