Imprisoned by my thoughtsAnd my past was my jailer.I dreamt of escape.I dreamt of release from its hold over me.

The snowflakes restingOn my eyelashes and meltingOnto my skin,Fell down my face like tears,When youContinue reading “Beauty and the…”

Fear and Love

It was fear and love that sealedMy fate. The fear of dying again,Without the warm touch ofLips pressed to my cold skin.The fear of saying goodbye toThe ghosts in the shadows,That kept me company.The fear of another night,Trapped in my tomb,Hoping to see the moon,Once again. But it was love that resurrected me,For the finalContinue reading “Fear and Love”

Pretty Little Fears

Show me your darkness.The agony and the night terrors.The things that keep you up at night.The pretty little fears.

Show me the ugly and the visceral.Your darkest thoughts and secrets.And the words thatContinue reading “Pretty Little Fears”

Our Escape

I want to run away with you;Make our escape into the unknown.I want to make love,In every place, we flee to.

We’re lost souls, you and I,Attracted to the wild.YearningContinue reading “Our Escape”

I Remember

I remember the stars were out that night.Lighting up the darkness,That wrapped around us.Your hand reached over to mine.And we sat in silence.The tension hung thickly in the air,Between us.

Bonfires and moonlight.The taste of salt in the airAnd the stars lighting up the night sky.Memories of those hot nightsAnd even hotter days,Emblazoned in my mind.

You have me addicted to your touch.Hooked on the way you look at meYou have pierced my soul.Penetrated my heartAnd impaled my very being. You have called down the moon,Brought the stars to my feet, andErased the clouds from the sky.With just a touch of your lips,I’m yours. A shadowy masterpiece.An illusion of what couldContinue reading “Masterpiece and Blood”
