Congeries

Blindfold me with silky whispers

Strip me naked with your eyes

Tie my hands taught with metaphors

Tease my senses with your scent

Drive my imagination wildly insane

As you degust my innate nectar drops

And I plunge deeper- in your complex folds

Where I live and die, over and over again

As pleasure of your unbeknownst…wishes

Sashay

My heart: distinct rapport

Like some rural cottage, set aside

Amidst a lush meadow of droplets

And a quaint warm babbling brook

As fluidity rushes over bold boulders

Where I-bath beneath a lunar umbrella

As sweet mellisonant tones harmonize

With each of my thunderous beats, bellowing

As if they were divine whispered messages

Set sailing- emotionally on soulful breathes

Worded vividness; wished desires; art in motion

Bound for the silky treasure of her clasp…of me

Blindingly

I often find myself subdued

Liken, a room without a view

Until I set my sights on your picture

Painted by your heartfelt words

Unlocking my mind, my soul

And between those lines, I go

Listening only to your whispery voice

Akin a trickling flow water over ice

Where I escape this acute silence

Into a realm with your silky essence

Nakedly we peregrinate shores

Where all our lofty dreams gather

As we lay upon them like a bed

Releasing all our tense constrictions

Intertwined, savoring each other

Like divine wine…from heaven

Miss Parsed

 

I became nothing but a memory

Moments after she read my words

Like an unwanted news ad

When- what I really wanted

Was to be read, and then felt

As if I was standing before her

Stripped of all veils, constraints

To be dreamed, wanted, loved

To be imagined by her heart

In colorful scenes- of longed dreams

Wrapped around her like a scent

If only she could absorb me as ink

Does spilled words upon parchment

Feel the beats of all my emotions

As one does from another’s heart

And be blind to my social aberrations

Until her ears could feel…my whispers

Scuttlebutt

There’s a thousand different ways

I could spin it, slant its effect

My version of what happened

But truth has a way of seeping out

Even in depictions we try to hide

From the world and ourselves

Only a fool would dare bother- now

 

It seemed a bit odd and yet

Fashionably accepting, for even us

Maybe even too accepting

To look forward to a bit later

Like hours later, each night

As being some quick triumph

And then again further onwards

As in like tomorrow morning

Being somehow the new summit

To aim for, to conquer if but only

In the space in our convoluted minds

As far as getting over- it all, again

While we steep- in muck

 

Maybe in some foolish respects

That kind of mess we lived

Replaced what we had- and lost

And thereby replaced reality

Any sense of normalcy or love

And getting from here to there

In love was all a bit more perfunctory

Like breathing, unnotably

In our most mundane of daily’s

 

Perhaps along our heart’s pathway

We lost what it meant to be us

What it meant to love one another

When we threw the compass overboard

And simply headed to new horizons

Braving those head on waves

Unconcerned of the weather or hunger

As our souls simply sought

To bestow something greater to another

Without concern of what we might gain

Lacking any fear of landing anywhere

Least of all- here, in this place- today

 

All I know now, was in that moment

When our ship of love went down

Was seeing your image swim away

Until you were merely a mirage fading

You- never looked back once

I’d bet my life you would, I would’ve lost

Oddly, I feel now as if I won

 

I clung on the mast, and our loves flag

As I choked on waves of bitter truth

My body, my mind slowly grew numb

Floating off in the tide’s changing currents

Almost as if I remained, in nights darkness

Never setting anywhere close to-a bit later

As if they were tiny islands of refuge

That we had become so accustomed to

Until the charity of a drier shoreline

Bequeathing granules of time, spilt over

Offered me a place far from the wreckage

Of that shattered little sailboat of- us

Where the illusion of love existed

Far more than reality of love…for one of us

Understandably

Love- is not painful by nature

Human perversion does that

Taking away its unique beauty

In order to claim ownership

Of love itself, all that it derives

Crudely etching one’s inscription

Across some fabric of delusion

 

Pain itself is discreetly infused

When the enchanted emotions

Of love is discolored, then abused

Only those who wish to misuse love

Would dare promote its wreckage

As being a necessity in loves quest

When the truth is, love only- loves

And humans, well they do the rest

 

Lust is who wears that false face

The true thief, of human hearts

Boldly stealing what otherwise

It could never obtain- or touch

Dragging us all most unwittingly

Into depths of sheer darkness

After tethering our deep fears

Submerged, we’re wet embers

 

It is there, in that dark palace

Where we are left abandoned

Far from where love intended

And the only thing we dare rein

Is our own infected imagination

Whilst our hearts beat onward

Its distinct song in silent hope

Our true lover will come along

And rescue us and truth of…love

Whet chills

Compelled, I walk alone

The fog follows

As if ghost can cast a shadow

Colorless in darkness

The scent all too pedestrian

For these steps that visit

On the fringe- of water wet

As it lashes the beach

Wave after pounding wave

Over and over, punishment

Seeping beneath- the grains

Filtering out bitterness

Only to be inundated again

Its too hot to breathe

And yet, my bones shiver

From the other side of- us

I still cling to each drop of hope

That, the waves will subside

The sun will again rise

You find me- here- waiting

And for but a little colorful while

I can love you dryly…in warm peace
