Your name gave me hope, because it was something new.
But sadly I already can see what you're going to do.
You promise that you're different, but I could argue back.
That you stabbed me in the heart, and watched it rot to black.
You're just like all the others, so why should I even care?
Changing your appearance like the color of your hair.
I'm the loser at the bar with his eyes glued to the phone.
In a crowd full of people, I still remain alone.
Uninspired and undesired, I wallow in my fate.
Watching the rest of the world from just behind the gate.
I'm afraid of rejection, but afraid of acceptance more.
Intimacy terrifies me, down to the very core.
Pigments of light
draw me to the surface as air
rippled against my skin beckons a
Between us our contorted bodies gather heat as distant drums
a primal language long forgotten.
As polarised opposites, we are held
by barometric pressures
with only gravity to our name.
Soon we loosen
& like tectonic plates we slowly drift
heedless of the aftermath above ground.
along the water color world in my soul.
As our Brightnesses
blend into one; Irises
fray out like Bristles.
dip into eachother
I can feel your brush strokes
As your touch glides across my skin I can feel the wind beneath it;
soft and smooth
trees in the breeze
our bodies into one.
Met her when he
Was walking down the road
Eye contact so intense
Even their minds connected
But it was in
Both minds were talking
Talking with body language
Which he spoke fluent
And she could understand clearly
A week later
Invaded her space
A week later
And in that same week
Kisses from neck to toe
Going down slow
Past the stomach
Then to the...
The lip biting
As his hand
He found out that
The fish that swim
In the ocean
Every time he wanted intercourse
Of her morals intervened
Creating that space between
The mind and body
But their souls
With your eyelashes close to my ear, I can hear you breathing
Your lips graze my neck and the air released sends shivers down my spine
You're asleep, holding me close and I can feel your chest on my back
as it elevates up and down with every breath you take
I'm awake, eyes fixated at your fingers interlaced with mine,
my thumb gently brushing against your knuckles
You shift in your sleep and I can't help thinking that I am asleep too
You're so close, I feel your heartbeat
My ear to your chest, I'll check to see if you're alive
Each heartbeat matches my motives and I'm back again
Your hand brushing through my hair as you speak of philosophy
Your speech is syncopated, lacks eloquence in the essence
But I've never heard such beauty in its raw form
I'll trail my fingers across your chest, past each freckle and each scar
Tell me each story of how you got 'em, repeat them if you must
I will just listen, I just want to hear you talk
Two bodies held by the gentle hands of passion
Legs entwined in a dance of sin
Fingers roaming unexplored places
breath warming soft skin
Dusk's kiss of nostalgic light bleeds softly into the room
The evening is so still, but in this place bodies move
Love spilled all over and held inside, tightly
Intimacy is only a word
Where you want it, you won't find it,
Where you find it, you will return unbidden,
to the chemicals of connection.
Tentative mental kisses
Become heartfelt communion
Elusive and fleeting and forever.
Breathe it, live it, be it,
Love it, shape it, coax it gently into life.
Do not run from it, do not be afraid
to grasp and hold it, to let it overwhelm you,
Or, to let it go.
It may be gone in a moment, or
grow, and change,
It might live forever, or instantly die.
from my belly,
in my heart,
by my tongue,
fills my being
to drop into
but not hearing
into a roar
As I fall into
the cradle of
she opens wide
to rock me
and I rest
in the moment.
