He left
That night locking
Her away with a kiss;
Her soul captured by his spirit,
She stayed.

She waits -
For the spirit
To light her pitch-black days;
To breathe into her missing nights;
She’s still.

The One Who Survived

            cramp in both legs
      as I fought the rough sea...
  panic, calm, endurance; made it
                  to shore

  Contest: The One Who Survived
         Sponsor: Sara Kendrick

This is a true event; happened when I was 18 or 19 years old. 
Imagine what it’s like to swim with legs that become heavy like 
lead, while at the back of your mind you know that the extra 
effort could bring cramp to your arms as well!!  
A ten minute distance became an eternity!

Autumn Reflections

Now feel,
Reflect summer,
That mirror resonates,
With your winnings and cold mistakes:
Can change.

My love
Beguiled me,with
Soft sensuous lips,sleek
Long thighs with rounded hips,twinned heart's
Eyes closed
As lips caressed,
Mouths joined,impassioned
Tongues explore,in our love's embrace,
in the
The warmth
Of love's invite
Encompassed my desire,
In two soft whispered words of love,
Be mine !

                                                 The scabs 
                                              we cannot see
                                         will never really heal,
                               because they are the ones we keep
