My Heart It Never Lies

my heart    it never lies 
with the morning light 
I pause      and close my eyes 
 
dawn is a lovely prize 
still I unpack each night 
my heart    it never lies 
 
she presses on my thighs 
soft and wrapped in white 
I pause      and close my eyes 
 
dawn’s warmth is but disguise 
I feel her cruel bite 
my heart    it never lies 
 
she slowly makes her rise 
then showers golden bright 
I pause      and close my eyes 
 
staring in her mirror 
I reach for something sharp 
my heart    it never lies 
I pause      and close my eyes

The Beach

crisscross clouds
leave unseen tracks

warm sands 
ruffle velvet shoals

ocean sprays
release salty tears

fine pebbles 
squeeze wrinkled soles

sapphire waves
grind sparkling glass

supple limbs
explore hazy shores

This Is Me

this is me this is all
head down and open eyed
see us rise hear us fall

trapped in this earthly wall
terrified creatures hide
this is me this is all

each day brings a new brawl
fueled by jehovah's pride
see us rise hear us fall

for lucifer’s downfall
left wickedness denied 
this is me this is all

with harmony unshawled
we’ll embrace genocide
see us rise hear us fall

now hope rides newborn wings
scorched by lies, father sings
this is me this is all
see us rise hear us fall

Pink Butterfly

Oh pink butterfly where have you been
did you see the mighty river where the wild flowers sing
have you touched your wings on the honey dew
did you lay in the sun til I saw you

No More

henceforth be known
all men are weasels
and carry their pride
forlorn and inept
yet waxing with sand

hear the bell – satan
your parcel retrieve
no more

Mary

bend over  bare breasts and pink nose
the sun's silhouette fades where you lie
shadows retreat, wings rise to the sky
dark hills recoil while your hair lashes fly

shrouded in black and turning plumb
cherub's encircle the abyss of lost souls
in the eaves,  deliverance rides an Aphrodite beast
her blood brings salvation to the tormented and weak
