Rise
You will rise again

You have been beaten down

You have been abused

You have been torn down

You have been told you were nothing

You have been told you can’t do it

You are plagued by residuals

You are tormented by demons

You are tortured by nightmares

You are attacked by PTSD daily

You are reminded of it all by your scares

You are so tired of it all

Yet you survived all of it

You continue to live each day

You continue to smile

You continue to thrive

You continue to overcome

You continue to be strong

You continue to rise

Your Safe Place
Let me hold you close

Whisper everything will be alright

Give me all your troubles, your burdens, your pains

Give me guardianship over your secrets

Let me mend any broken pieces

Let me be your safe harbor, your sanity

Tell me everything and never hold back

It will be alright my love

Let me be your sanctuary, your refuge

Your safe place

Forever

Bitter Pill
It's ironic how when the smoke clears and it's all said and done 

You can look back and see where everything went wrong. 

Where cracks turned into holes 

And those holes ended up swallowing up all the love. 

After you're done lashing out at the one who left you, 

You truly realize you left them emotionally a long time ago. 

You gave them no choice but to walk away. 

They painted a perfect picture you never bothered to look at. 

They gave you all the ingredients to make the perfect relationship 

That you never incorporated. 

All the tools to build the perfect future that you left setting on the shelf. 

You can sit there and blame yourself...yeah maybe it is your fault, 

But at some point you too must move on and realize 

That maybe you don't have another chance with that person, 

But they taught you how to not ruin your chance with the next person.

Predator
I hide behind wool
My teeth and my claws
I walk as a man
But I’m not one at all
I won’t draw blood
No flesh will I render
I hunger for something deeper
That you will unwittingly surrender
I’ll tear through your heart
And feast on your soul
I’ll consume it all
Leaving you empty and cold
I leave you discarded on the ground
Shaken to the core
Then I make you watch in disgust
As I feast once more.

I Can't...Anymore...
I can’t miss you any more than I do. Every breath that I breathe gives me another second to miss you and if I stopped breathing at this moment, my last thought would be of you. Every time my heart beats it says your name. Every time my brain cells communicate with each other they talk about you.

I can’t want you any more than I do. It’s that type of want you can feel it burning in your bones. A desire so strong it borders the realm of need. A craving that is so deep it can never truly be filled even with your presence. A longing that is so overwhelming at times it suffocates me.

I can’t love you anymore than I do. If my love were a tangible thing our universe would be too small to contain it. If my love were put into words they would fill the entire library books that have ever been written and all that have yet to be written. If my love could be calculated it would go passed infinity.

I can’t…anymore. I can’t miss you…anymore. I can’t want you…anymore. I can’t love you…anymore. My brain can’t think of you anymore than it does. My heart can’t desire you anymore than it does. My soul can’t long for you anymore than it does.

I can’t feel any more than I do and I know in my heart you feel this way too.

Missing You
I swear every day smells like you
You’re in every breath I take
The sun radiates with all your love
The moon gives me your kiss goodnight
Everything I eat doesn’t taste as good as your skin
Every morsel doesn’t sustain me like your embrace
I see your face on every corner of every street
You haunt my every thought, every corner of my mind
Like background noise on a phone call
Like steady chatter at a nearby table
Every night I climb those 15 steps
I know you’re not waiting for me up there
But god knows it always feels like I just left you

Midnight (00:00)
I can’t seem to get it together
Everything seems to slip through my fingertips
I can’t seem to catch my breath
Everything seems to be suffocating me
I can’t seem to get back up
Everything seems to be pushing me down
I can’t seem to catch a break
Everything seems to be breaking me
I can’t seem to get any relief
Everything seems to be stressing me out

I end each day on a sad note
My life right now is madness
I look at the clock it’s 00:00
And all I want is some peace

The Extent Of Which
Your love given

The extent of which

Seemed to know no bounds

It seemed to have no limit

But it had a limit

It ran out on me 

And then you did


The damage done

The extent of which

Shredded my heart

And cut to my soul

I thought at one time

It would devour me

But it didn’t


The damage done

Doesn’t overshadow

Your love given

It cancels it out

It takes the counter back to zero

It erases all the years put in

And all that’s left are ghosts

Touch Me
Touch me with your hands. Your hand lightly placed on my arm as you giggle at my silly jokes. Your arm wrapped around mine as we walk under the moonlight. Your hand placed on my shoulder gripping it tightly as we kiss under the stars. Your hand interlaced in mine as we sit and share the day. 


Touch me with your heart. Love me through my darkness and add your light to mine so we shine brighter together. Heal me with your presence when life wounds me. Reflect all the love I give to you back to me and I will do the same to you.


Touch me with your body. Wrap yourself around me so we create the warmest, comfiest knot in the world. Wrap yourself around me as we become one and burn in a passionate blaze all through the night. Rest you head on my chest as we drift off to a deep slumber.


Touch me with your soul. Open yourself up and show me the deepest, darkest and most intimate parts of you. Open your soul so that mine can seek refuge in its light. Bear yourself to me, vulnerable and trusting and I vow to do the same.


Touch me with all of you. Touch me with your hands. Touch me with your heart. Touch me with your body. Touch me with your soul. Touch me until I can feel you in every part of me, in every part of my being. Touch me with all that you are and I will return the favor.

Meant To Be...
What once was
Can never be
What we were
Is just a memory
A shot to my heart
A cold delivery
Was it really that bad?
For you to do this to me

All that time
Erased
All those issues
Never faced
All that love
Now a bitter taste
All that I was
Was replaced

What now is
Will forever be
Her and I
She and me
This is the way
It was meant to be
2 hearts
Beating in harmony

Killer
There’s a killer in us all

It doesn’t render flesh and bone

It goes for something much deeper

It attacks the heart and soul

It confuses and damages the mind

It feasts on insecurities and doubts

It haunts the hallow corridors of the soul

It strikes out at where it hurts the most

It doesn’t stop until it draws blood

There’s a killer in us all

And its name is anger

The Waiting
I know the waiting is unbearable at times. All that waiting can lead to a heart breaking. Every minute that goes by is another tiny crack in its shell. You start to develop hairline heart fractures that cause a pain in your chest. The uncertainty of the waiting is a burden carried by the soul.


I know the waiting is dreadful at times. All those lonely nights, one side of our beds always stays cold. Every day that goes by is another chain for your soul to bear. Your heart continues to ache as those fractures get deep and the chains get heavier.


I know the waiting is suffocating at times. All that weight crushing down on you and breathing seems like a foreign concept. Every month seems to put more miles between us than there actually is, we seem so close yet so far away and there seems to be no remedy in sight.


I know all this because my heart has those same fractures. My soul carries the same burden of heavy chains. I see our positions on the map slowly drifting. And it can keep drifting because the tie that tethers my heart to yours can stretch a 1000 times around a 1000 universes and never break. The bond is forever and always and unconditional and it will outlast the waiting.

Futureless
A cold room so stark and bleak,
Except for this day,
This day it was warmed,
Warmed to a boil,
Boiled over to a blaze,
Blazoned to an inferno,
An inferno of passion and energy,
Two souls colliding into one,
A fusion of sensual eroticism,
The magnitude to which is immeasurable,
On this day of spontaneous togetherness,
This soulful rendezvous,
Marks were made; left,
Fluids flowed and exchanged,
Bodies intertwined; entangled,
Only for a brief and fleeting moment,
But oh what a moment it was,
On this day something amazing occurred,
Two futureless souls,
Found their future,
Each other.

I Love You
Seductive Poetry Dec 2020
I love you for giving your heart to me and trusting with your pride. I love you for wanting and needing me by your side. I love you for coming to me and bearing your soul when you would rather run and hide. I love you for the beauty you hold deep inside.


I love you for bringing out the emotions I never knew I had. I love you for making me smile whenever I'm sad. I love you for loving me even though at times I make you mad. I love you unconditionally through the good times and the bad.


I love you for your thoughts of me where I'm always on your mind. I love you for finding that part of me that few could ever find. I love you for your nature that is thoughtful and kind. I love you for the way we fit so perfectly as if for me you were designed.


I love you for the way you are and for how you make me feel. I love you for the power you give me to stand tall as you kneel. I love you forever and always your collar is the seal. I love you just as much as you love me and the love we share is real.

Be Gentle With Her…
Seductive Poetry Dec 2020
Be gentle with her. She may be a warrior, but every a warrior needs a safe place to retreat. Behind a queen a strong king to keep her centered. A goddess needs a temple to dwell. Yes she can do this alone, but be the reason she doesn’t have to.

Be gentle with her. Be the quiet place that calms her when her mind is restless. Her battles have left wounds and scars, don’t try to mend these wounds, but give her refuge so they can begin to heal. Treat her like the woman she is, but also the woman she wishes to be.

Be gentle with her. Hold her tight and chase away the demons that haunt her dreams. Support her in her life, her journey, her joys and her struggles. Accept her at her worst so you can see her at her best. Be the one who gives her a reason to show all of herself, to unlock parts of herself that have lain dormant.

Be gentle with her. Lead her with actions when she’s tired of leading herself. Command her with your touch and guide her body with pleasure. Claim her with a look and soft whispers of rough things. Give her a space to let go of everything and experience anything. Be gentle with her, when she needs it, and she will cherish you for that.

SP

— The End —
