Siren Whispers

Siren Song

Abandoned breaths


I stopped counting

the heartbeats

that raced on ahead of me


I’d see your name

we’d talk

or touch.

I thought that over time

I’d become inured

to your effect

yet here we are

and every time is like

the first time

the crackle of electricity

between us

growling louder

heat rising as

along with my reason

I’ve abandoned breaths

when you are near.

I created this blog as a way to express myself using my poetry and photography. It is a reflection of who I am and of the things that interest me. I have many muses…perhaps the greatest one being my love of the sea, how I gravitate to anything relating to water, how I feel a pull toward it deep in my bones. At times I will be revisiting content that I have shared on Twitter which has, until now, been the forum I have expressed myself in. That said, the content will change over time as the blog grows and develops. It is my hope that the reader will enjoy the journey.
