10/10 RIGHT NOW

We are but worlds
away
yet intertwined
connected by the yarn
that binds
from distant planets
place and time
dancing to a rhythm
but separate
in our beat
swaying to the notes
following no lead
holding hands yet never
ever touching
two strangers too caught up
unable to concede
powerless to completely
surrender
to the moment 
or stopping long enough
to have an experience
of what it is to be
truly living
breathing
loving
unyielding
is the
the passion
that is only here
right
now

Let There Be (F)light

The body,
Beautiful and amazing
The mind so sexy
The spirit or soul
Such a completely mystery
Intangible the power
When freeing the mind and body
And Just Be
What yesterday was impossible
Is today probable
Even solvable
No one knows where
Each tomorrow may lead
Or what we will see
Don’t ask why
Taste the pleasure
Taste taste the pain
Sweet is letting go
Delicious the unknown
As the spirit is
Free to fly

Naked, Lets Get, Me and You

Into the darkness, she reveals herself
With but a murmur scarcely audible
Her voice cowering as she tries
In vain to conceal herself
From her being naked


There are things
I don’t like about you
There are things
I don’t like about me

Waiting, impatiently she turns away
Unable to look at what is directly
In front of her the harsh reality
That is the truth unveiling


I look at me
And, there is not
Everything I want to see
There is not
Everything I want to be

Stumbling, words they become
A jumbled mess attempting
To escape all at once
Chaotic jailbreak


But, I keep looking
Stripping off masks
Of insecurity
To look deeper
Getting naked
With myself
And, being ok
With every
Scar of hurt
Scratch of
Desperation
Wrinkle of
Worry

Daringly, they do, marching
Out of her mouth rolling off
Her tongue in complete
Synchronicity


I look at you
And, there is not
Everything I want to see
There is not
Everywhere I want to be

Stumbling, trying to take
Hold her words are
Powerful and yet
Intriguing


But, I keep looking
Stripping off masks
Of insecurity
To look deeper
Getting naked
With you
And, being ok
With every
Scar of hurt
Scratch of
Desperation
Wrinkle of
Worry

Courageously, she finds great
Insight in the plight that is
Hungry for more as she
Keeps her focus


There are things
I like about you
There are things
I like about me

Timidly, the shroud of secrecy
Is lifted as she reveals it all
Letting her words drop
To the floor exposing
Herself completely


It is a matter
Of what I choose
To see
In you
Of what I choose
To see
In me

Calmly, she licks her lips
Cocks her hips and
Proceeds to dance
Seductive provocative
She is in a trance


If we can
Find that the
Distance
Is not too great
That we cannot
Bridge that gap
Meld into one
Bring together
All that we are

Longingly, the trance
Becomes a stance
For which she
Owns


For all our myriad
Of holes
Being able to fully
Acknowledge
Our truth
Holding true
To being you
Holding true
To being me
Knowing we are
Me and you
Whole
Knowing we are
Me and you
One

Into the light, she reveals herself
Without the need to be audible
Her voice powerfully silent
No constraint to conceal
Herself from being
Completely
Naked

Today, She Burns

Being grateful
for each step
never underestimating
the power
of the moment
when at any second
something so unbelievably
amazing and beautiful
may arise
out of yesterday’s
ashes
being thankful
for every gift
every breath
every one
watching
as life’s eternal flame
burns bright

My Two Favorite Words

From my tongue you taste like honey
Dripping like nectar from an endless pot
Of the Carniolan’s most illustrious
Lust for life’s boundless divinity
Yet for as sweet as you truly are
Your nectarous heart is tainted
by bitter doubt and trepidation
Artic reality from life’s stings
and other leather restraints
too often and even once
even once is too often
You are but a shadow
on a clear sunny day
unpleasantly displaced
irrevocably replaced
unforgivably misplaced
and neglected to silence
so if my love
I do not profess
and to my stranger alike
please, oh please forever realize
I am more grateful than you could
ever possibly know and even though
I do not show it or allow you to hear it
Today your sky it will will not cry
Today your sun will forever be bright
Today the stars will align inside the moonlight
That sparkles inside your conflicted eyes

Ship wrecked

Ship wrecked
Upon the sands of time
Jolted from the mask
Of separate illusions
Catapulted into reality
But, what is real
When nothing is left
To hold onto except
Life itself and that too
May be but a dream
Or an utter nightmare
With voices drowned
Out by silent screams
That one day may turn
Into dreams as the story
Unfolds and that chapter
An awakening of once
Ship wrecked souls
