Dead On Arrival

Untitled

It
took you
way too long
to trust me when
I was already
all wound up in this love.
Your willingness to provide
me with security, comfort,
and peace appeared incredibly late.
Now, all you’re doing is playing catch-up.
Now, all I’m doing – losing interest.
The flame, once bright, shines so much less now.
The feelings of desire have peaked.
Thinking about our future.
Where do we go from here?
Turning away now.
Letting go now.
Goodbye then.
It’s too
late.

Stories Not Shared

Untddddddddddditled

The day to day left behind
to follow the excitement in your eyes
teasing me, beckoning me
daring my inhibitions to loosen
Shhh… tell no one

Be a good girl my conscience remarks
the bad girl laughs with a sexy smile
party time, stolen moments of sin
reveling in concealed desires
Shhh… tell no one

Just this once, again

The Kiss

Untitled

the urge presented itself
in the most opportune moment
an unexpected pleasure
brought joy and chemistry
and a lingering fortune

a slick comfort
of trapped tongues
finding bliss and harmony
wet exchanges
of future promises

desires for fulfillment,
yours and mine,
the priority
on the to-do list
of this sensual journey
towards mutual satisfaction

a repeat expression
waiting for its turn
patience, a frustrating value
only eclipsed
by distance

sweetness will
be won again
desires satiated
by unending
fulfillment

I come to you willingly
offering my being
watch as I flourish with you
healing myself and you
with our love

I melted into your arms
to flow freely
through your veins
emanating through your pores
to cover your essence with mine

Two, still separate
and unique,
blending and deciding
togetherness
was a better formula

We intertwined our lives
to nurture what was to come
a future filled with goodness
and pleasure
being strong as one

The Way To Love

Love soothes, but only with genuine empathy. 
Don’t remove the struggle from my control. 
Let me gain the knowledge I need to grow. 
Be by my side, watch me heal. 
See the places where it takes me.

Love doesn’t fix things. It just eases the conflict. 
Don’t be the answer to my problems, my wannabe protector. 
Be my companion on my own personal journey. 
Enjoy my company, enhance my experience, 
and inspire me by the path you take.

Love doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It needs you and me, together. 
Free from distrust, anxiety, worry, anger, and shame. 
It’s a warm place, filled with comfort and ease. 
It’s a space where wholeness resides. 
 Our happy place created together.  

Love feels easy, but people are hard. They’re complicated and stupid. 
Don’t sabotage a good thing, intentionally or unintentionally. 
Remember I’m who you love; you know why you do. 
Fill any distance with kindness and care. 
Especially those times when you’re sad.

Love always wants more quality-rich lingering moments of sweetness. 
Any effort on your part to provide them is cherished. 
Your reward is acquiescence to almost anything. 
Comfort and pleasure is our prize. 
Don’t hold back. Give me what I crave.

Love is required. And love is needed.                         

Privileged

Untitled

I shed my layers of hardness.
The best and the worst of me exposed.
Laid bare all my unspoken evils.
I trusted you’d see me as sane.

My heart wrapped around yours for safe keeping.
Pleasure replaced agony.
Excitement replaced fear.
Love embodied our present.

Am I privileged or are you?
