It's a Time Like This
It's a time like this when I take a trip,
a mental one in which I am a child,
riding on a carousel without a care,
feeling the circular air blow in my hair.

The animals on the carousel beg me to ride,

Under the canopy of the pine trees we lay*
My brothers and I, and our mates the other three,
They wore a different uniform the colour grey
Yet here in purgatory a smile from them being free

Oh to remember how we all played...Read More

Woven are these pages in poetic verse,

With bare threads of our deepest feelings,

You will find laughter, tears and remorse,

and words of wisdom, prayer and healings.

On my knees I will be,

Premium Member A Dream
A dream of a sweet soft kitten,
a cuddly kitten to hold and love,
daily friendship and fun.

A dream of the morning daybreak,

Premium Member escape the darkness
in the darkness
one can't see the shadows
falling down around them
but can feel the chill
as it rises in the air
sweeping over them

with misty eyes
even these skies cry
as the clouds of fear
hide glimmers of hope

it's times like this
where the darkest hours reign
that...Read More

Premium Member It's All Good
Slobbering kisses ain't so bad
and slippery tongues are grand to be had.
Tender touches with back sliding hands
are caressingly shivering and sensually rad.

Warm oil rubbings from head to feet
leaves one wanting for something horney to eat.
Nibbling on nobs is nastily sweet

When men are men 
In the upper class ready to defend 
Their social status as leaders 
With innocent images of being sweeter
Finding ladies to be courted 
Despite not being able to afford it
