Men from all quarters would
Slay each other to the death to
Get close enough to
She of milk-like pallor, shadow
Painted lips, shadow
Painted nails, flowing hair and
Garments that compliment her supple shape,
Fine-boned corset that embraces her
Ribs tightly, all black
As evening w...

You inspire me to be more than I am,
It has been unconscious since our meeting.
I strive for your affirmation,
To have my hopes dashed by my own hubris.
My pinnacle is your salvation,
But just to conjoin myself to your journey is its own reward
I am enamoured by your presence
Your beauty is Maine's first solstice.
I could not delineate my narrative to you,
In fear of ...

at right angles to beauty,
geometry's not my friend,
full reservoirs of make-up
my proportions won't mend
other girls seem so pretty
my torso's a basket case
lobster nose, carrot hair,
mirrors crack at my face
I dream of drastic surgery
features lissom and new
Romeos on my doorstep
aftershaves in a queue
each day flushed torture
in a self-consc...

If your minds eye was open,
Would you consider an unabashed divulgance?
Your forthright nature checks my exubernace
Your beauty makes me timourous
I suppress my passion in fear of your answer
Do i dare wonder about consequence?
You make me feel alive, there is no other, there is no level i can gratify
I would be yours, if not for the latitude of convention.
You bring me joy

Pursue the beauty until the ugliness leaves you alone
and let you bloom
like a flower in the stone

Can the difference in our souls be overcome?
The asterism of our fates cannot so opaque.
It is ironic that what we both seek can be defined in a chronograph of sand.
You have so far to travel and yet your peace is already found
I long to tell you of the falsehood of my pretences
To unlock the anacucis of your affections to me would more beautiful than a strand of your auburn locks...

The red dust of Mars settles on my heart,
only her will can stop the thrashing of cymbals that call me to her.
Every cascade of flaxen strength undermines the facade of purity
but the tilt of her smile will resound everpresent.
Ablazen are her cobalt eyes, I draw strength from their tranquility
she could not know the foundation she raises the pyre of my love,
the freckled shoulde...

When you left, you took a piece of my heart
When you left, my whole world came tumbling down
I became so lost
I was left in the dark
You took with you my light
When you left, I learned to fight
I learned to navigate this world without you by my side
I learned to be strong to no longer rely on your love
You thought I was weak,
For feeling too much
Now, you're the one ...

A hyper-sensitivity of feeling
your art connects across the senses
The roughness of ancient bark
beneath gentle fingertips
A kiss from rock-pool water
warm against bare ankles
A double exposure
it's poetry, the sensuality
the sheer never timid beauty
lensed so gracefully
with such assurance and dexterity
The texture, a waking daydream
a cloak of fog, shaft of sunligh...

eyelids and earlids
beauty from color
glimmer from a lake
all lost with eyelids closed
birds songs in the forest,
symphony of city car horns
beeping to a crescendo
cooing of a morning dove
breathing of a lover
all lost with ear lids shut
is one better
to loose than the other
one would have to ask Helen Kell...
