You Make Me Feel

you are trapped in my  mind
in the maze of my dreams
haunting me

your whispers brush my cheek
and get tangled in my hair
tormenting me

your touch melts my heart
and scorches my soul
torturing me

your kiss leaves me breathless
and words die on my lips
confusing me

your eyes leave me vulnerable
and naked before you
shaming me

your gaze grazes my skin
and I embrace the pain
you make me feel
punishing me

you make me feel

bringing me sunshine
whenever you cross my mind

It's a beautiful day!

Covert clandestine encounters serve as satiety for a surreptitious
servitude of temptation
Gold symbolic of intertwined eternities begins its satirical,
metamorphic transformation
portraying austere shackles and assuming a sadomasochistic
restraint devoid of gratification
Blame blazes a path between the paradoxical pastures of
consummation and fornication
Denial draws the dark cloak of deceit closer enticing delusion and
appeasing suspicion
Guilt masquerades as manic mood manifestations escorted by
indifference and dissatisfaction
Remorse, coerced by conviction, shows itself, contemptuously
licking at the wounds of revelation
Forgiveness drags its feet as it follows in the footsteps of despair,
confusion and humiliation
Betrayal, born in the belly of lust, basks then slithers, like a serpent
through the cold ash of devastation

Vernal Equinox

Spring has officially sprung! Roll on warm and wonderful days!

Super Moon

Last nights 'super moon' fortunately we had clear skies and I was able to capture it. A bit disappointing really - I don't know what I was expecting to see?

No One Home

you don't call me back
maybe you lost my number
maybe you lost more than that
the clock's lost its chime
maybe I can't remember
maybe I just lost track of time
days slide into long nights
maybe I don't know the difference
maybe I turn on the lights
and leave them on all day
maybe people at the door
will eventually go away
maybe the lights are on
but no one's home
maybe I'm not alone

Tasting the sweet buds

To Fate

your kiss
the foreshadow
of death
your words
a knife through my heart
your love
a poison chalice
I drink
deeply, greedily
to fate

Pig's Ear

Lily of the Nile
Virtuous and pure
In death and in love
rebirth and resurrection
Chaste with white spathe
and long phallic sword
The epitome of
lust and sexuality
Paradoxical beauty
The quintessential
Venomous virgin
