If you’re reading this

I’ve so much more to say

We’ve only gotten started

Along this precious way.

 

Stumbling at times

Often falling short

Terribly uncertain 

Not knowing what’s in store.

 

Wishing that your fingers

Would reach out and pull mine in

Wishing that your lips

Would savour my sweet skin. 

 

Next to you is where

My heart can take a rest

The Moon in Reply

My darling, it

Could never be 

For you would eventually 

Devour me

And so we sit

Eons away

Space staring us 

This place to stay.

Dear Friend

It took me a while,

To realize,

Just what I feel for you.  

A mixture of feelings,

Crystallize.

And I know,

What I need to do.  

My heart for you.

Has been right here.

To grasp, pull close into. 

Your heart, a different one,

Pushes me to do.  

And I will say good-bye,

My Love.  

I would rather not delay,

The eventual manifestation,

That will surely c...

This

This

Striking my heart strings 

In such a way

Brings such hope

For joy to stay

Casting eyes 

Cloaked in jest

But you know I want

You the best

I love you, I love you!

I long to say

Bridled and silent

I can not play

Ripped and torn 

Inside my chest

Tear off pretence

And me undress

Say you love me

Say you do

All I’ve ever wanted

Was you.

I am One

The voice of one

is lost 

In the emptiness

Because no one

speaks up.

Everyone

is waiting

Conditioned

For someone

else

To take a stand.

It takes one

to create a ripple.

One step

One action.

There is no good time

No right time

No perfect time

There is only now.

And when I look back 

in ten 

I want to say

I was that one 

And, I am s...

The Sun’s Litany

My light, forever

Bright, proud, and true.

Would surely know if he was untrue?

His words a balm to desperate ears.

My body only what he holds dear?

Oh heart, emotions be.

Craving sweet shore of security.

Safe arms, to pull me close.

Cherish my heart, essence close.

Play and laugh with carefree joy,

Dance our hearth, 

Not destroy.

My warmth is strong to warm us b...

My Voice

I have been silenced for so long

I do not know my own voice

All I hear

Are your words. 

Your condemnations

Your judgements

Your lies. 

I see your glance

Haughty

Better than everyone else.  

Only

You aren’t.  

You are hiding behind fear

That controls you

And all you do

Keeping me in check

In case I discover my voice

And use it
