Smell the cinnamon,
clove, molasses scents

your nostrils...

merry molars

Malaise in My Heart
There is a void in the hollow of my breast
where once my heart beat, undeterred
It flurries now in lethargic rhythm 
quelling emotions its never repressed
unraveling its three-fold cord of silken threads. 

I never imagined they would come unbraided 
believing their...Read More

For the most essential sense of all:

Smell claims to be the most exquisite one,
Sound insists to be the sweetest ever,
Taste brags to bring the most scrumptious fun,
Touch prevails in intimate endeavour.

Premium Member Absolved of Faith
The allowance of possibilities in the absence of proof
Gained from other than my own eyes,
Which can be fooled.
As a child I didn't recognize, 
Slight of hand, special effects, and perspectives of light.
I didn't care because I needed love and loved...Read More

Come kiss me, love
Come kiss me, love, and make the time stand still;
seconds to hours and hours to years extend. 
Come, kiss me, love, and with your lips' soft thrill 
my heart will leap and all my passions send 
a song of love;...Read More

Premium Member A Hidden Trigger
A casual game of chess: spectators 
Respectful of the players, watch silently 
One rests a finger on a piece’s top,
A bishop maybe,
As thought to pirouette, hesitates,
Not go diagonal across the board for now.
Then it slides across the bias of...Read More

The Feeling Of Feeling

In my rose garden I can smell the spring coming,
listen the sound of music the whistling zephyr brings,
I taste the dew on the unfurled petals so divine,
the smoothness of silk in their velvet touch I feel.

The pristine smell of rain-soaked...Read More

The path back home
Fumbling through dementia, finding oblivion,
Mind is slowly dying, waning to black obsidian,
A trail of breadcrumbs, left behind in my wake,
Beacons across time, for the trek I now take,
Paving my way for the journey, back home. 

These markers I’ve set, some...Read More

My Dearest Friend
Her hair is a cascade of water,
Warm, tender and complementary;
Her sparkling eyes speak to me,
While her lips are uniquely primary.
Since I saw her for the first sitting there,
As she concentrates on your studies;
I became destructed many times,
Thinking how lucky...Read More

The water lulls me into a soft sleep
Lingering at the ocean six minutes
My relaxed breathing gets even more deep
My eyes flutter as I dream of flowers

Unicorns in meadow take a front seat
Meditative state I find myself in
Dreaming softly in sun...Read More

Your Eyes Are Like Magic Marbles

Your eyes are like magic marbles 
made of blue sky madness,
they draw my sharpest senses inward
rendering me helpless to your red devouring lips,
which pucker with a blinding instinctive intensity, 
as with silent snakes seeking a...Read More

Premium Member Beyond the Grave of Perception
He looks at the mirror and frowns at the image

	‘Is it the glass or my face that lies shattered?’

		Fault lines burrowed into borrowed time

			Tim wonders about censorship and cracks

He sees a crossdresser between sadness and joy

	A veil of burnt out...Read More

Seeking Peace in the Land of Furnace
Long I've grovelled
Plainly I've waited
To see the rising fire
and finally get lifted

Far from incandescent mind
Betrayed by sight 
but in honoured scent
I felt the blazing horizon 

Trekk i did to closer comforts
In seeking peace from rising red
To accept the calm in...Read More

Premium Member Phantom, I Reckon
Who the figure from out of dark dreams-
Where she flees in terror and silently screams?
With the looks of a demon!  What a heart of love!
And passion for the opera which plays above.

Tears of music fall from his eyes;
A face...Read More

Maybe if I look him directly in the eyes,
and try to hold his gaze little longer,
If my hand reaches out for his and for a moment, lingers ~
If he notices my fingers twirl a strand of my hair

Love Me Like You Mean It
The night was stormy
The rain lashing against my windows
And the thunder,
Deafening my senses!

Lost and agonising,
Tossed and turned in my bed
Seeking to find
The meaning of life
The material realm
Laden with illusory tricks
Has had me losing my grip on it!

I closed my eyes
Tumbled...Read More

Oh Maya, you are so cute and beautiful,
Dancing like a damsel around me.
I came here with a definite hope,
Of winning you without a delay.

Oh Maya, showing your softness and grace,
You delude me and made me a slave.
But whenever I woke...Read More

Waiting for the Holy Spirit 

As we stand amongst the pews 

Waiting for the basket to go ‘round 

Hearing the hymns from the choir 

Smelling the incense that burns so sweetly 

His Holy Spirit is coming.

Used as a paperweight for discarded inked upon manuscript pages
