Poetry

Stranger

The mirror reflects
A stranger
Who is this woman
With the natural hair?
She has eyes like moonbeams
A smile that kills
Her neck is one
That should always be caressed
Those breasts aren’t so perky anymore
They still have some bounce, though
She’s ugly to me…

I wonder if I’m beautiful to her
Her identity escapes me
Maybe
We can help find each other
Those little girls we used to be

Poetry

Mirror

You can’t look at me
I know you too well
You aren’t complicated, babe
No one is
Your fragile ego
Can’t handle the mirror
And I, I reflect it
Your agonizing cry
Pierces my heart
As you shatter your reflection
Can’t you see in the pieces
That I know
That I am broken, too?

Poetry

No Castles

No diamonds
Or expensive gifts
No castle
With rooms we won’t fill
Only
Me
You
A trailer by the river
Hold me
Make love to me until I cry
Moonlight glistening on tears

Poetry

Not good, not ruined

This heart might be broken
Stitched over and over
Patchwork art
A beautiful mess
I may feel less
But still feel
I may love less
But will love
I may be hiding
But not a #ruin yet
Be the one who restores faith
Restarts this heart
Reinvigorate me
My touch will be worth it

Poetry

Serenity

Early morning
Cool breeze
Blows in
Rustles the sheets
Contrasts with the warm touch
Of your fingers down my back
Palm grasping my cheeks
In my half-slumbered state
You are my solace
My serenity

Poetry

Dear butterfly

Dear butterfly
I beg of you
Please #pass me by

Don’t land on my shoulder
Don’t kiss my nose
Don’t even whisper in my ear
As you breeze by

Don’t let me see you
Don’t let my eyes turn kaleidoscope
At your brilliance
Or blind

Little butterfly
Keep your chaos to yourself

Don’t force me to strip you of your wings
As you set mine aflame

Poetry

Presume

I let you into this heart
This body
Let you caress this skin
Let you under it
I made it personal
Intimate
Gave you free reign over this temple
Wandering eyes became intense gazes
Wandering fingers became pleasure
You presume I’m ok without you
That the world goes on without you

Poetry

Flavor

All you are lingers on the palette
Your flavor is unique
Satiating
As much as I may want to
How can lips touch aught else?

One last time
Let your juices run down my chin
Let me taste you again
