Seize Me

I will twiddle my thumbs
Till the seams come undone

And the aftermath
Of love is a crackling core
Splitting wood
Vehemently stroked

A single simple chime
A serpents tail
Whipping altered states
Making out
To meet you in midair
Run my fingers through your hair
Cradled scales curled up
Japanese redfish
And a moon to catch your bare
Echo of a voice

The inner twill
Black water and bread
Make for us a meal
Bite down on summers
Misty stammered sweet
Drips of lucid steam

Two love gashes
Torn in cryptic memories
Mended in the
Mysteries as our hearts
Call out the weathered
Wide eyed fantasies of yet

My almond prize
A gold red hallucination
Sparkles optic
Nightmare visions
Awakened by our
Hot tears
Dancing vertically
On a blanket
In the sea

Seer

Blisters on my heart
Cool me and soothe the
Painful insights
That arrive unannounced
From underneath the
City lights
As thoughts
Confide in me from where
I know not but receive

The sidewalk path
Made up of concrete
Feels of solid mass
But breathe dreams
Once dreamt
Of those
Who passed upon and on
This ground beneath

An allowance
For the virtues of
Communications needs
Requests permissions
To grasp the souls
Whose dreams
Have never been retrieved

With hesitance
A gentle yes
Answers before
Time takes to think
As their beliefs
Cloud and fill my mind
They become their memories
And then transform again
Accepting what has entered me
Is like a thread
It moves so swiftly
As is with life
No warning sign

Questions flow in
And then beyond
The needles eye
Disguised again
In visual imagery
Revealed its entry
Unfamiliar sources still
Pushing through the soles
Of both my feet
In every wave
A different life
Coursing with heat
Upwardly into my
Mental faculties
Projecting pictures
Of each face
That enters
Onto a movie screen
My mind displays to see
Another face not me
I’ve never seen before

Softly I do not coincide
Just to define the substance
Dream reality
Or to discover that the only
Answer found provides
Uncertain destiny
An opportunity
Or way in which to slide
Outside the arms
Responsible for guiding
What we see

Painting Time

Like to have a friend
Takes time
Like to make love
Takes time
If I could paint
A flower exactly
As you would like to see it
No one would see precisely
What you have shown me
And I see it because
I would depict it
Like the flower that you are
So I tell myself
I will mirror what you show me
What your flower will bestow to me
Painting it enormously
And everyone will be pleased
When they are taking you in
On the walls of a museum
I will make the world
Appreciate what I see in you
Portraying the flower I displayed of you
What I saw when you patiently
Played with me while you laid with me
Who you are even yes
When you tasted me
A painting to remind us of
When we made love

Internal Asunder

I want to establish
The amount of pleasure
I feel aside from
Experiencing its actual presence
My volatile nature
Only reacts substantially
There is no reasoning
To my reaction
I cannot justify the action
Before it exists

Why not discuss the lust
Investigate our trust
In one another

Free from fear
Our relationship here
Bearing the fruit
Of our labor to speak
And to dare to conceive
A legitimate distraction
To explain my reaction
Built so intricately
Without even trying

I’m dying to know you
And I already do
Without knowing
What you mean to say
When you sound off a clue

With the light in your eye
That assures what I find
When I’m with you

The Pass

Why is it you can see it
When others don’t
Turn the lights on
Look around
I’m not hiding that well
Mostly in plain sight

Friendship turns to love
Once upon a time
Lines drawn around
What is actually allowed

Wouldn’t want to screw that up
So I dream of things to say
Words resting at the tip
Of my tongue
Ready to take off
When the moment is right
Perhaps never being said
For if I say too much
You just might turn your head

So percolating silently
Approaching moments at tiptoe
Sliding around in socks
Without a noise to shake
Or rock our perfect balance

Friends can become lovers
Lovers can walk away
Better to be friends
Safer not to say
Or is it
Compromise
With my heart
Take what I can get
Hold my breath to get ahead
Just don’t turn blue
You can’t love me if I’m dead

Hopped up on lust
Fantasy breaking trust
Building courageously up to
The moment where I almost
Say it all
It’s the angle of the pass

Fumbling while trying
Not to fall

Swampy

If your land rests in my water
Even as a silhouette
A black shape deep like
A current in the emotional waves
A pooled grave for love making
On a bed of lilies

Rest In Peace
In ecstasy with me

Can we then be careless
With our sounds
The birds are evident shadows
Cagelessly flight bound
Cooing sounds
Creatures of the night
You and I
Nature resounds
All around us

Will the swamp leave us
In a state of terror
Without one another
Dense as the forest can be
Quiet as the chairs
Rock back and forth on a nearby
Wrap around porch
Like your legs wrap themselves
About me
As lights blink on and off silently
Twinkling in the periphery

Our heat strikes down like lightening
As moss hangs and sways
From tree to tree
Back and forth
In the breeze
You and me
You and me

You and me

Before the Alarms

Strategically you could in a way
Create a space to be with you
There is nothing more desirable
To me than a lack of
Complications

Me there with you simply

To see what your heart sees
During the day
To wait for you impatiently
Hold me
I am more than one way

You are absolutely right
Every moment for me
Takes a drink from your glass
And if not love at first sight
At last

What you say I need
Is all I want
So far in distance but so close
In the way that you’re discreet

What

Uncertainty can be strong
But loving me is even stronger
And this reflection of your love
Would be enough to create
A gem that has not yet existed
In the world between us

A most coveted ring

Imagine me around you
When you close your eyes at night
Know that dreams have a means to
Build a bridge before the alarms
Wake us up in the morning
Just as the dawn would find me
In your arms

Do

I don’t want to forget
What reminds me
Of hopeless endings
There would be no
Reason to want something more
Something worth defending

I’ll never give up on
The hope that it could be
But I can’t stop
Searching out every possibility
To convince me
Of our truth
You need faith
And in time
I believe it would prove
What it’s looking to see

I must be willing
To risk the chance of losing you
In order to feel
The hope that I could love you
I would love you
And the fact that I could
Is more powerful
Than actually proving that I would

If you only knew
What I wish I could do

Kiss Your Neck

How much how many times
What is the balance
To find work and love
Someone to go home to
Someone to celebrate
Someone touch my lips
Working hard is what for
If there is no one to share it with
Affection calls
I feel it strongly today
Underneath the mystery
Turn me upside down
Find a way for you
To find me too
If I knew where or
How to ask you
Just to stay with you
Hold you
I want to
Kiss your neck

Bitter Bite

Little words
Neutral love
It puts to sleep
What round and rivet
Thumbing
That tic-toc
Like clock
Time of misgiving

Do not let
Your bitter belly
Crawl through
Acid incisors that might
Eat you like a child
Who cries to feel
The umbilical cord
Unreel
