dizzy (possibilities)

we live...
(that's what we call it)
waiting for life to be fair
hands out, begging
blinders securely fastened
pretending we're powerless

holding back
building walls
setting boundaries
fearful of what will happen
if we let go...
if we stop being afraid

be the puppeteer, not the puppet

glint of light

we are a glint of light
visitors in paradise
we are hope embodied

following the soft whisper
along the long winding road
leading to your heart

ever gentle footfalls
afraid to wake myself
that this dream may end

we are a glint of light
visitors in paradise
we are love everlasting

...and you have always been
my beautiful undiscovered destiny

I can't kiss you

deeply enough

I can only imagine

words that melt

me into you

I waited

so long for you

I breakdown


my truth lives

in your touch

the way

it's in the way
the stars light the night

in the way
your hands fits in mine

in the way
our two lights shone brightest

with all the possibilities
that exist in the infinite universe
we managed to find our way
and against all odds...

it's in the way
the stars light the night

open me up

cut me open
you will read
all the words
meant to be

scribbled on scraps
tattered and torn
pages never meant to be felt
black as the ink that pours from me

tear me apart
you will see
all the dreams
that used to be

escaping the chains
left out in the cold
my most  beautiful horrors
the demons that roam my empty halls

open me up...I dare you

delicate (not soft)

woven from breath
as real as a secret
never uttered
truth is ruthless
an unforgiving lover

fear and faith
crushed by mortar and pestle
blended, we are (forever)
diaphanous and dangerous
as subtle as dynamite

I am delicate
I am not soft
to the point of breaking
exactly what I needed

there is beauty
on this killing floor
buried beneath the midnight
the pain is alive (and unwell)
keeping me in restraints

scars upon scars
trying hard to heal
keep your fingers
from my rusty cage
I bite out of instinct

I am weak
I am not fragile
to the point of letting go
exactly what I needed

slings and arrows
real and imagined
pain brought to light
giving up control
to save (what's left of) my life

taken from shaking hands
searching for my salvation
tired of running on empty
finding rapture in release
my hope lives in your eyes

I am delicate
I am not soft
to the point of breaking
you are...exactly what I needed

no mystery





there is no mystery
lips have memory
this is magic

my angel

our fingers
as we fall

perfect love story
from the lips of an angel

your eyes
my heart
beats now
for(ever) you

from the love of an angel

life is long
the path is winding
lit by strings of stars
and I will have your hand to angel

to you
flesh magnetic
the way
your touch
haunts my sleep

by you
voodoo magic
the way
your kiss
stays on my lips

in you
compass broke
the way
your heart
leads me home

into flesh
(under) skin
yet forever

Thursday, April 3, 2014


slowly we sway
rocking gently
moved by a melody
we alone hear
hips moving in time
to our heartbeat

sliding silently
barely breathing
skin on skin
sensing the rhythm

stars above us
form a ceiling
we dance beneath
bathed in unearthly glow
beautifully oblivious
to the sweltering moonlight

(camera) obscura

shadows float
through darkness
invisible against the backdrop of the slate grey night

living in light
slow dancing 
safely hidden beneath the sultry breath of twilight

love passes
through us
like ghosts through the walls of a crumbling mansion

camera obscura
dreams come (true)
filtered through the blind lens of a heart in love

close your eyes and listen to the quiet...

lost in light
consumed by night
living on the brink

no trick of light (or dark) can save you now

(return to) oz

we are
headed for oz
a point in the distance
unknown and invisible
immeasurable by time or miles

pull back the curtain

we are
space and time
loss of memory/pain
perfect and improbable
dreams and reality coexist

mind, heart and soul

we are
finally home
here, now and forever
immutable and immortal
love and hunger overtake us

there's no place like home...

broken clock

bring me home
from this place
far away from you
take my heart
make it yours

no more darkness
no more fear
no more fading away

bring me home
wrapped in love
safe and warm with you
take my hand
make it yours

no more darkness
no more fear
no more fading away

bring me home
to fix the clock
days pass too slowly
take this time
make it ours

no more darkness
no more fear
no more fading away

sheets wet
soaked through
with our lust
back arched
velvety skin
causing my delirium
gliding touch
anointed by your lips
voice low
unable to speak
above a whisper
eyes transfixed on you
fingers tangled
in your wet hair
arms and legs
tied in a lovers knot
slipping ever further
deeper into you
biting and scratching
feverish with hunger
tasting the need in your kiss
we move in unison
bodies lubed with desire
harder and faster
we rise and fall
crashing again and again
out of our control
we fall over the edge
hands clasped
eyes stinging from sweat
gaze and lips locked...
as I breathe my love into you
