i shouldn't want you.
if you are the sun,
i am the moon.
by all laws,
by all logic,
you are untouchable.
you are far away;
i am a drip of ink compared to your solid line.

how then have you touched me so deeply?
you have opened me up,
and explored every crevice of my heart.
you have taken everything;
every piece of me you have taken,
and loved.

you love me
as if i am really yours;
as if you are really mine.

you should be untouchable.
how then have you manged to love me so deeply?

how did we let this happen?
how did i let this happen?

There
she goes
once again
ignoring life
as she falls in love with another song.

This fleeting love affair however brief,
is the only
time she feels
truly
free.

The leaves are falling endlessly
Green rivers will turn red
We here, dancing aimlessly
I hear a gunshot in my head

Somebody heard the calling
Somebody saw you sinking
Somebody forgot your face now
Somebody will replace you

White stars like death surrounding
The warmness of the dark
Threatening with pale light
Disguised as lover's spark

Somebody saw it coming
Somebody said the words
Somebody's heart got broken
Somebody's, just like yours.

One Family united as one
The Father, Mother Daughter and Son
In unity we can set things right
In the darkness be the guiding light
Keep your eyes open
Keep hoping
The Family be the key to all the lies spoken
We can set it straight
I can't wait for the date
We all can relate
Not to hate
To a families special love
Black,White our blood is both red
one people one world so lets move ahead
We can do it
Show that we really care
To get it together for one big FAMILY AFFAIR!

We had that beach affair
That long night in summer air.
Your shoulders my heads resting place, your lips -my great escape.
But we both knew it wouldn't last

So heres to our past. That midnight summer love we can't grasp.

Lonely thorns,
Have caressed me,
And pierced me.

With extended arms,
They reached out,
Felt me beneath the skin,
And felt the agony.

Then they bloomed,
Sparkling flowers,
Gifting me,
A bouquet of joy.

Watching me smile,
They rejoiced,
Danced around,
And I danced along.

The million arms,
Dug into me;
And my heart soared,
Reaching out,
Every pore,
Till I was,
A loving being,
And they,
Were the thorny me.

An affair of just wanting,
Victoria

Dec 9, 2012      Dec 10, 2012

Thoughts of cotton candy kiss laced with guilt.
Bubble gum wrapping the shame.
A deceit told through a mouth sewn closed.
But eyes held wide-shut.
A lie supported by another lie, bracing itself before falling.

Should I let the guilt be known through a cotton candy kiss?
Let the bubble gum wrapper shunt my shame.
Will I hold our secret behind stitched sewn lips?
All the while, holding my eyes wide shut?
Could I support this burden, bracing it with another lie?
Before I let it slip and fall?

A dangerous dance our feet have started,
where it goes I am not for certain...

A wicked path we've lain before us.
where it goes I am not for certain...

An affair of just wanting,
but nothing of taking.
Where this is leading I am not for certain.
For: where I hope we are going,
Well now,
that is another matter all together.

the wintry, rainy comfort of my drowsy affair.*

Apr 24

Life is my current lover.
I swig her ephemeral taste from my cupped hands
worried as the golden, shimmering liquid rushes through
creases and cracks in my jaded hands.
Her mood varies through my stages;
at times she is of doting temper and roseate kisses
but when love evades her, most often than not,
her calloused hands damage the pearly flesh in tender
places,
and discontent paints a surly mood as she digs her crimson
brush against the canvas of my self.
Life is my inconsistent lover,
sometimes doting but most often than not abusive.
So I vowed my eternal devotion to Death.
We escape under the dark canopy of starless wings;
a tryst.
I eat of the forbidden feasts in the Kingdom of Hades,
grains of scarlet pomegranates staining my chapped lips.
Death has promised me perpetuity.
But until Life decides to release me from her capricious temper,
I shall long for the wintry, rainy comfort of my drowsy affair.

Refraining from love with this affair Im in

A passionate touch that I love so much also touches me with an unknown guilt when it comes.
Feeling chills down my back and tears on my face as our bodies meet again.
Filling me with sorrow every time we share that embracing stare.
A simple pleasure that I hate within as I sin a great sin.
Refraining from love with this affair Im in
