Behind the mask, I see you.
Your eyes tell a story your mouth can’t express.
Is it fear? Is it caution?
Are you incapable of receiving what you don’t give yourself?
That’s a shame.
I know the yearning.
I know the craving.
I know that make believe is in your nature.
Detachment comes easy.
But I am here to put that all to rest.
Every touch, taste, breath, and sound will live within you.
There will never be another like me.

Internal war arises,
the motive, surface bliss,
a contradicting theory with a diplomatic twist.

Reconstruct the naked eye,
time to play inception,
shift the focus left to right and transform one's perception.

Guilty of deceiving,
directed from the east,
have always been a beauty, will forever be the beast.

To watch you breathe is a gift,
a treasure that I can't replace.
You are the epitome of timeless,
and my only saving grace.

Before there was no light.
Darkness, that swallowed me whole.
And surrounded by a silence,
one that sure had took its toll.

Shattered but intriguing,
a mystery nonetheless.
But you picked up the pieces,
and tidied up the mess.

A word, a phrase, a sentence,
like heaven to my ears.
This joy has filled a void,
one I've had for many years.

A thank you is in order,
but it wouldn't be enough.
To show you is exhausting,
cause breaking walls is tough.

I could tell you I love you,
but what I feel is so much more.
You are my guide and flashlight,
the one that I adore.

A life would not be worth living,
if your heart were not in my hand.
And to love without condition,
is the future that I plan.

From this day forward I promise you,
your heart is all I see.
You are the love of my life,
and thank you for loving me.

Ruby of the wrath
Tears fill the sapphire sea
Envy, emerald green

Inside my head there is a voice,
angelic, so it seems,
that sings at morning, noon and night,
but mostly in my dreams.
She takes me on adventures,
to lands, to seas, to stars,
but leaves as soon as we have reached a distance all too far.
I wonder why she leaves me,
I wonder where she's gone,
the devil's work is done once you've become her sacred spawn.
Destroy all that you care for,
all things that you may love,
without a sense of guilt because you are unworthy of.
And after I am finished,
I crawl back on hand and knee,
so her and I can raise a glass to miserable company.
I wrote this so very long ago, but still one of my favorites.

Inside the tiny cupboard holds a piece of sinful pleasure,
forbidden fruit that you and I conceal like hidden treasure.
Upon this ship seduction docks itself across the bay,
with wicked thoughts at night and curiosity by day.
Overwhelming pleasure, pain and all that's in between,
drowning seas of secrets if the gentlemen had seen.
Inside the tiny cupboard holds a piece of honest pleasure,
where I aboard as captain and you shine as sapphic treasure.

Tranquil auras set the tone,
traveled time, what love has grown,
piercing shards of shattered glass was all that we had known.

Alluring scripts, poetic
Salacious sounds, eclectic
Chemistry astounding, ever pure, two hearts, kinetic.

Piece by piece we gathered
what remained of tainted souls,
only to discover brokenness had made us whole.
It's been a while.
