anything that involves him
seems to be wholly acidic;
why did I think I could be an
alkaline strong enough for this?

Power comes from many places
In many forms

From other people
From things
From knowledge
From history

My power comes from within
A wellspring in bedrock
Without limit
Without end

I can feel uncertain
                 anxious
                 afraid
Still my power flows within

It has always been there
I know
That it always will be

I don't know

Where it comes from
What it's made of
Why I have it

But it’s there

I do know

Who I am
Who I will always be
While I am also
                    Forever changing
                    Forever growing

I search for
How best to use this power
How to share it
How to show others how to access their own
        Buried deep
        Forgotten but
        Never lost

Vulnerability is the key
To sharing power

Join me
I will share mine with you
Share yours with me

It is not a question of lust
it is not the difference between you and I
it is a question of trust
and how we can see eye to eye

you are a special human being
one that knows me all too well
and I know that us believing
will make our hearts swell

love is a difficult term
one might say it knows no boundaries
but how can it in turn,
when it's always had such tendencies?

one must know one's boundary
to know how much love can grow
one cannot stay sedentary
one has to let one's vulnerabilities show

So I tell you now that it is not about you and I
it is about we and how we can become strong
just let me with you lie
and sing you our eternal song

Remember me
The one you didn’t know you needed
All woman, soft tender wet
With curves that made you hard
And drew forth your animal
Remember my ocean
Waters deep you dive into
Liquid sweet to quench you
Remember the fire
That burned my resistance
It burns still
Remember
The Phoenix woman rises
Time and again
She lifts you up
For it is now your time
To shine
Slay those demons that pull you down
Remove distractions and noise
Allow the pressure to reveal facets of greatness you have yet to discover
That I see so clearly
Rise my beloved
Rise
Rumble with your terror, this beast of vulnerability, wrestle that bear to the ground
And emerge victorious
I will be here upon your return
Nourished within myself,
Empowered in my work and my life
Ripe with readiness
To feed your starving
To nourish your weary
To feast on mutual desire
And remind you who you are

Discipline is not taught in a day
I've been on a vibe. Happiness is everything.
