The Ethereal Affair

Sitting there observing me
A shadow among the flock
Breathing in the magic scene
With a vision to unlock

I waited for a dream to be
Unforgotten and serene
But the love and lust
For what I must
Tantalizes me

A rush of insanity
Forgetting how to live
A feeling of divinity
As chilling as the wind

Touching
And moaning
To a love song half way sung

Kissing
And killing
An emotion that has begun

Gazing at me with eyes so pure
A mannequin among the dead
Living a life so unsure
Of what evil is unsaid

You touched my lips again for more
delving pleasure to leave me sore
The forbidden love
From a bloody dove
Fuels my vicious roar

A rush of insanity
Forgetting how to live
A feeling of divinity
As cold as the wind

Touching
And moaning
To a love song half way sung

Kissing
And killing
An emotion that has begun

Affair Of Emotions

Affair Of Emotions short poem

Logic races toward oblivion, In a little black dress and heels. Whispering words of love in your ear. Reason waits in the house, In yesterday’s shirt. Wanting very badly to be held. Passion consumes only in secret places, Clad in

Ethereal Awareness

Ethereal Awareness short poem

In this timeless ethereality where silences build converted assonances and gravitational elapses, I breath your unspoken space within my pollinated reflections… Petalled essences of your insights swing the Eternity on the edge of my second… Echoed Time graciously bleeds rainbows

Literary Affair

Literary Affair short poem

Rows and rows of books wearing pressed monogrammed jackets aligned at attention upon the shelves edges stained lightly by time. To wring out one more droplet of thought from drying script These aging eyes thirst to caress sweet ebony lines

The End Of The Affair

The End Of The Affair short poem

He didn’t think about her for a week despite the Manchester slags carping in the rental car lobby while their children disassembled democracy and the drumbeat of the universe tore the cloud cover razed the concrete like blackberry canes way
