                                        jerked it
                                        out to place
                                        it back in and
                                        it seems as though I can't get any out.

                                      jerked it
                                     out again
                                  to place it back
                       in, yet, no luck in getting any out.

                                      I tried
                               form of Pleasure,
                      taking off the lid and using plastic.

                                        just wanted
                                        to drink my milk-
                                        shake using a straw but a spoon will do.

Journey of Dreams

Into art,
Casting myself,
I am focused with no destination.

-----------Elementary Love----------

Fate knew best, as fingers intertwined souls weaving…bringing elements together A patch of soil, a whisper in the wind a blackened storm, wish ablaze-- finding love ~***~ Earth embraced slumbered seed nurturing it making room for it, and letting it grow Through the years, this tree stood steadfast…solid rooted deeply yet pliant, humbly strong Air carries tall tree’s wish soars, touches stars that whisper to the Heavens, blow kisses Leaves dance, flirt with breeze in constant motion seasons fly on, lives pass by, granted wish Rain water: a blessing, tree soaks it in never drowning, drinking in happiness Its wood sails in the sea of memories, waves then crash in until it reaches shore Flames burn free, fire licks...feels, ravages wood. Tree’s ultimate sacrifice, exhausted Glowing embers now remain, gives soft light just the right heat, warming souls that need it ~***~ He was that awesome tree. He always said, "You are elementary in my life." It is only now that I understand… I was his Earth. Air. Water. Fire--Light. Love. --for Chris' Double the Fun~ (Tetractys) contest--

Soup of Friends


want to 
write tribute
with high regard
To a fellow member of this, my site
To a super poet who gained my heart
Who cries and laugh
while reads and
writes or
my dreams
shares my life
through days and nights
Or sings the tone and note that make me fly
Who backs me up when hear my rhymes and lines
Who lights the light
Who’s by my 
side or 
spell or
tells the tale
that never ends
Tribute to you I write and need no names
Full of esteem and pride I call you friend
You’re not just one
You’re all, my

Get well soon! : )

A man, 
A good man
Is now tainted
We judge by the shallow sketches painted;

 In the crimson, pallid, and cobalt dream,
The devil scheme,
A mean plan.
God bless …

A sex, 
A pretext.
Man is a lie.
Behind closed doors great heroes often cry.

River Swallow

Bird of pain makes wrong move and slips from nest, splashing into frigid, flowing water. It defies the odds by swimming to shore, shivering on slippery, concrete edge. Do I leave the swallow to die like this, letting nature take its predestined course? Its parents have done just this__turn away. Pick up the pain in my hands- offer heat, but the bird becomes weak; succumbs to death three days later- they are such fragile, finicky creatures. Was there a point in prolonging its death? What is three days in the grand wheel of time? I swallow these questions, creating more, wondering what my true intentions were. The baby swallow had been a fighter, so I must have seen myself in its eyes. And so I had tried to help it survive, merely prolonging its death by three days. I can only pray that if I fall hard, those helping hands will hold the proper keys.

Star Seeds

Skin on skin. Breath on breath. Two souls entwine, weaving into one pulsating rhythm. Give and take. Enveloped penetration- moisture dampens climactic, rubbing shock. Slow down pace, synchronize the push and pull of an engorged, dilated harvest moon. She rides the lightning; loud thunder clashes within his veins, as their thoughts fuse and merge. Tides crash on the edge of orgasmic bloom, but tantric elevation reigns them in. Sensation spirals beyond simple play- thoughts unravel, lifting up to the stars. Here, a soul is then plucked from the heavens, planted within a womb of earth and fire, as the dam breaks, finally succumbing to a release of passion and the flood.

Unseen hands


To catch

With one hand 

Never touch down

Always there waiting, watching, protecting 

Something so much greater than you or I 

Shared hope and faith

Unseen hands
