Siren Song

Half light

I watch this sea

in daylight

in half light

and in total darkness,

finding it mysterious and ever-changing.

I listen to its song,

the even ebb and flow of the tide

gentle

rough

gentle.

I don’t check the time,

knowing by the sound that the tide has come in.

When I wake,

as the dawn breaks over the horizon,

I know that the water will have receded.

The tide will be out

and spread across the beach,

scattered like drunken sailors on leave,

will be messages from the deep,

interspersed with cylindrical sand shapes

where the water has leached away

waiting for the moment the tide pushes its way

inland again

the land’s thirst for the sea

sated.

Adventure

IMG_1573

The time spreads before me,

shining and restless.

I count the days left in my head,

my smile widening as I think of the plans I’ve made.

My adventure.

Will she be everything I anticipate,

the smells,

the sounds,

that my soul hungers for?

I think she will.

She waits for me,

eager to embrace me once again.

It’s been too long since I’ve felt her touch,

heard her voice,

and been reduced to silence by her beauty.

Each day will be rendered with a luster

I cannot find elsewhere

and which I will carry with me when I leave,

leaving a part of myself

on her shores.

When night closes in

I want to know the thoughts that linger in his mind

when night closes in.

Do they render him sleepless,

his mind a hive of activity,

plans and conjecture,

a body fitful with want;

or is he able to pull them about him

like a blanket

feeling every soft pass against his skin,

an inaudible sigh within

pleasure pulling him deep into dreams.

I want to know the thoughts that linger in his mind

when night closes in,

I want to know if they are of me.

Cover me with your sin

afullsizerender

Click here for audio

Cover me with your sin

Fingers threaded through with mine

Held aloft

Pressed upon soft white sheets

Stark against flesh flushed pink

With arousal

With exertion

.

Cover me with your sin

As you crowd me with your intentions

To spoil

To sate

To initiate

Claiming every dark instinct as your own

As you pin me to the page

Writing your darkest prose

Seeing my response

Under your fingertips

A whorl of darkly inked curves and lines

Entwining with your own

Scent of forever

IMG_9050

IMG_9091

Ireland, June 2016

Though I am captivated by it’s rolling hills

verdant knolls in varied shades of luxuriant green

where there is history under every footfall

it is the sound of the ocean’s crash beyond me

and the scent of forever on the wind

that enthrals me

that rejuvenates my soul

and I exhale with longing

to always be this close

to my beloved sea.

:

*The longing for the sea is a constant, never ebbing.

Undoing each hook

FullSizeRender

It was simple,

Yet elegant.

Embroidered lace.

Delicate

Feminine.

Covering,

Yet revealing at the same time.

She was nervous

Yet excited.

The butterflies in her stomach

Threatening to fly free.

With nervousness can come haste

Nevertheless she stilled her fingers

She willed herself to take her time

Her fingers finding and undoing each hook

Slowly

Peeling the lace back

Bit by bit

Inch by inch of creamy skin

Exposed.

Her heart racing

Faster.

She knew that his eyes were locked upon her

Not missing a thing.

He looked intently at her face

Watching as she undid the last remaining hook

And raised her eyes to his.

He caught his breath.

For he knew

And she knew

In that moment

The one that they had waited for

That she was utterly his

That she would always be

His.

*Not a new piece but as I was reminded today, it is new for some.
