Shed a Drop


I’m lost in your summer
In your gentle heat haze.
Adrift in your ocean,
Those shimmering blue eyes.
Falling and falling,
Forever and a day
And I can’t help recalling
Every word you say.

And I wonder
Am I doing it right
Gazing on your beauty
In wordless delight.
Searching ever searching
For illuminating phrases
To shred the darkness,
Shed a drop of light.

If I am the shadows
Then you are the rays of the sun.
If I am a drop in the ocean
Then you are the one.

Searching ever searching
In wordless delight
Forever in twilight
Stumbling at dusk.
Wanting to shred the darkness,
Shed a drop of light.
Silence maybe golden
But it don’t get the words right.

Lover’s Steps

Belly laughs and lover’s steps
Upon the stairs,
Emotional devotion.
Sentences intertwined like limbs,
In the chaos of calming breath;
The aftermath.
Stillness
Conspires with the electricity
Of touch.
This aftermath
With sheets disarranged, soliloquy of destruction –
Is this the scene of crime or a passion play,
Where husks of human flesh lay spent.

I’m waiting for your virtual touch –
The virtuous feeling,
Your digital meaning.
The coded transmission
Between you and my heart.
The information download
That you started.
Electrical impulses,
Laser guided
Like satellites in the dark.

Waiting for The Elation

Waiting,
Forever waiting
For the elation
You promised to bring.
The promise you made
To pay the bearer
Of this broken heart.
I didn’t want diamonds,
Never asked for money or gold
For they won’t keep me safe from the cold,
But you promised a kiss.

But you left me
Waiting,
Forever waiting
For the elation
You promised to bring.
Waiting for you
To pay the bearer
Of this broken heart
With a kiss.

Clemency

Speaking of my crimes, my black designs
That went astray. My steps in wicked ways;
When it is just lies to talk of love
Such a pretty word for want and lust.

When all along I knew I never had the words
For speaking of the truth, and my eyes just mould
Darkness into a perversion of the light.

And my defence?
My senses were overwhelmed by the reality of you.

Infinity

 

Entwined,
Skin to skin.
No ending or beginning
This endless state we’re in.

The silence of this season
Completes me.
The Night holds me in her arms,
The darkness drapes her body:
Caresses my feeling in the coldness
Of her ebony being.
I plunge into the heart of her,
And in falling I shine.

Quiver

I feel your breath upon my neck,
The gentle caress of your lips.
Your finger traces down my spine,
Your touch is gentle,
Like the brush of a feather
Yet the sensation is sublime.

Pandemonium

It’s a plaything in your hands,
This body and soul of mine.
Heart beating faster,
This fierce longing
Is beyond my control.
And simply in passing by
You take my heartstrings,
You take my mind away.

I’m hanging on, I won’t let go
And give in to this weakness
I won’t let you have the power.
This enchantment is part of the spell
As natural as breathing to you.
But I’m lost if I dare to desire.
