Add Bliss


Crimson kick to the gut

I should have seen it coming

Ouch. Blissful pain.

Again. Again. Again.

But more than a kick

You’re gentle

Gentle on my soul

Rocking it back and forth

Lulling us to sleep

Rock a bye me. Rock a bye you.

Can you kiss my temple again ?

Can you squeeze my soles

I thought all parts of me has been touched

I was wrong.

You fill up the venuoles

You surf on my lymph

Render me nymph.

Smooth me over. Make me new.

I’m still jagged from the last one.

Still afraid of lying fingers.

But you don’t subtract from me.

You give. You add.

Bliss.

Carry the light 

Treat me like an Angel

And I will fly for you

Tell me I’m beautiful

And I will grow more so

I am what you put in

And take out

In. Out. In. Out.

This is what love is about.

You touch my skin ever so slightly

But I feel weight in those fingers

I feel light. Lighter.

I’m flying above this room

I’m floating on lavender clouds

Your breath is the breeze

And for now you control my direction.

I must remember though

That I am more than Angel

That I hold both dark and light

And the balance is mine to keep

I must not let the heavens weep

So treat me well and I will be an Angel

But there are parts of me that 

That are mine alone

Mine to mould

Mine to hone.

Your fingers are magic

Your touch is delight

You hold the lighter 

But I carry the light.

Bang

I give in

I am made to fall.

True. Mad. Deep.

Down the exquisite rabbit hole.

Hitting every pleasure bump on my way to the underworld.

Bang. Bang. Bang.

Oooh that’s nice.

I have tried to peer in

I have clung to the ledge and watched longingly from afar

But that rabbit knows me well

And his eyes hold pity.

I will always follow the bunny

Bunny. Runny. Run.

Would I really change it though.

While others walk on solid ground

I am both above and then under.

Hello. High. Low.

Bang. Bang. Bang.

Ouch.

Mannaaaah From Heaven 

How sweet it is to be held in honey

Luscious and amber ,tongue to cheek

I’m weak. I’m weak. 

Always.

I hadn’t realized that I was worthy of this manaaaaah

The delight in craving 

Something that is saving

Me. You. Us.

Is there a sting coming though? 

Do u feed me sugar and spice ?

Keep it nice

Until suddenly you strike 

And I’m again fool

Caught in a sticky spool

Left to dream at night

Craving.Craving.

Always.

Sedimentary Dear Watson

I will clear the sediment from my spleen

All the imperfect feelings that linger in my guts

I will filter through the muddy waters of my mouth

The raging tides of down south

I’ll clean the gutters of my unclean laugh

“It’s too raucous”, he said.

I’ll shave the bones of me

I will do anything to make him see

Something else other than me

I’ll be shiny and new

No black or blue. 

He won’t wonder about my past

Never be aghast

My cheery demeanor won’t let him ask

The silt like blood that courses through

Will pass through a sieve

Change from old to new

But where oh where, will all the waste go ?

Why my darling don’t you know ?

Sedimentary, Dear Watson. From dirt to rock.

The pieces of me that may cause shock.

A little something

This thing we have? 

I’ve learned never to ask

“What are we”? 

The truth is:

We’re nothing.

A little something in the evening

A soft hand on a hard place

A gentle caress of the face

Going nowhere. Nowhere to go.

This time I’m ok with that.

You don’t sing me songs, right any wrongs.

You just touch and go.

Ask me no questions

Tell me no lies

Our conversation is made up of sighs

Moans. Groans.

We’re on loan. Not alone.

I don’t look for hidden gems

I don’t dig at your soul.

It is what it is.

A little something. For a little while.

Citrus Light

adult-2179093_1920

Can I be a warm balmy evening?

Can I be fresh citrus light?

Can I coat you in apple blossoms

Taste your cherry flavored gum

Just for fun?

Can I breathe out desire and soak in stress

Make life seem less…. just less.

Can my soft skin tip yours so that goosebumps hold you close

Can I be the mosquito that sucks your blood

Both annoying and good

Scratch. Scratch me.

Let me in

Under your skin

All over your mouth.

Let me linger on your fingers

Loll on your nose

In quiet repose.

I can be in all of your senses

All of your dreams

Just wish it so. Wish it true.

So I can be all of those things for you.
