Blood and beauty

Blood and beauty

and how we fall

with the jagged edges of life

softened with love

or meticulously opening

a vein

leaving us ashen

with blood loss

Emotional bloodbath

Quite often when I write it is what I am feeling intensely at the moment and the words spill like blood from a fresh, deep cut.

When I revisit those same words, a day, a month, a year later, the emotions can still feel like a wound that has not been cauterised and I am transported back to the moment my thoughts were bared.

The feelings are not the same, but I am unable to cast an indifferent eye upon them. I find myself gazing at them from a safe distance,  peering over the rim of that abyss, no desire to wade in, hip deep, to the pain.

Irresolute

img_1974

I will not speak to you through my words.

though you will find my answer there.

I will give you my voice

untutored

and irresolute

replete with the cracks and inflection of emotion

as I battle myself

and allow a dismantling of this mighty fortress I’ve erected.

Each stone removed

giving way to vigorous expression of thought

becoming certain

urged on by the slight presence of fingers

at the small of my back.

No guide

simply assurance.

The bluffs

FullSizeRender

I run along the bluffs

laughing, looking back at you.

The wind rushes through my hair

and tugs at my clothes.

Your look is determined

as you close the distance.

The sea rolls and crashes just beyond my steps.

I am intoxicated by the scent

the power I sense

making me wild

making me bold.

The adrenaline is pumping through my veins

my nearness to you

pushing me into overdrive.

You catch me

we tumble to the ground

your mouth finding mine.

I close my eyes

losing myself

in how you feel

in how you taste.

I arch my body to yours

desperate to get closer

as you press your body to mine.

I feel you

hard

wanting me.

The kiss gathers heat

breaths and tongues mingled, tangled

a delicious union.

You start to peel my clothes from my body

slowly

oh so slowly

as your mouth marks mine

as favoured territory.

My mind is saturated with you

and this mindless need

echoed in the way you fit your body to mine.

Our clothes litter the ground

and my skin meets yours in a sensuous dance

you slip into me

the moment sublime

as the setting sun

slides into the sea.

Kiss the dawn

Kiss the dawn

With lips that have felt midnight’s caress

Dreams laden

With the press of his thoughts

Like hot skin upon mine

Molten with need

Unmet

His breath

Rent with my own

As greed is built

With every hour of darkness

That we allow the restraints of day

To melt away

And we fall into each other’s arms

Denouement

IMG_7696

The ivories he tickles are behind her eyes

each note

unexpected

raw

but becoming beautiful

as the song emerges

.

And with this sudden denouement

her story unfolds

Descent

I don’t fall fast

My descent is slow

Achingly so

And with that drawn out

Downward trajectory

I savor all that it means

How it makes me feel

The way it transforms every moment

Nerves alight

Skin tingling

A vivid hue

And every synapse firing

As I give myself over to it

And him

Faith

Trust

Surrender
