Puzzlebox Hearts

Darkness
drenched in black
unfolds like a starless night
leaving liberty to lie
in saturated emotion.
As a sea of prayers
formed from suffocating words
slowly drowns.

In longing, I wait.
Fingertips slipping
combinations
across puzzlebox hearts
in hopes a click
will unlock forever love.

Ensconce me.

Leap Of Faith

All I believe —

The words left

Carelessly unspoken

Wrapped around heartbeats

Like roses blooming through thorns

My left hand tangles with yours

The right strokes your cheek

Your eyes lock with mine
Our lips brush

Desire leaps

And I whisper:

“Take me home.”

Slips of Time

Unfettered reality

Forms…

And You, are mine…

The scattered scent of forever

Tangled between
Rose petals and heartbeats.
And You, are mine…
You… Are.. Mine…

Unmasked

Caught
between the strands of time…

Naked heartbeats
falling
in perfect counterpoint
to kisses
pulsing
from staccato eyes…
The moment
suspends
into abandonment
between the seconds
as our needful desires
peak…
Unmasked reality
folds into entangled stardust…

And You, are mine…

Once Mine

Once Mine

Someday folded into love letters You once wrote me,
Your fingertips brushing against arcane words scribed against the chambers of my heart, Your silent kiss uncovering the tomes of desire eternity left carved in stardust. Passion rolls like waves through my mind, I forever Your Electra, the desire You reached for across the Heavens, across the darkness,
across the sea of time.
Reach for me again, pull me into your light.

Covet the unspoken secrets shared…

Return to me, reflect on those

Precious moments…

Once Ours,

Once Yours,

Once…

…Mine.

Torn Heart’s Desire

Green grass touching sand
clouds pouring towards the shoreline;
the abstract way seagulls
hang against the waves
and compliment the sun.
Hair spilling down her bare back
as she watches the frame
photograph it’s colours
into a monochrome memory
of days fragranced with lilac
in Eliot’s cruelest month.
Her heart torn and hanging
while the waves crash
and the seabirds sing
the intrinsic harmony

of a healing heart.
