Sea salt awareness

img_3593

Click here for audio

I don’t want placid.

A lake without ripples, 

a sea without waves.

I want to feel the violence 

of being alive.

That sea salt awareness

the sting

the bite

ice cold to my senses

leaving me with an exhilaration

never known.

I want to be stirred

to my depths.

As his teeth meets my flesh

and sinks into the heart of me

finding me

tasting me

all of me.

Hungry for what he knows I keep

hidden below the surface,

that which has never seen the light of day.

A complexity that feeds

his curiosity

his desires

as he maps me

to understand me.

To help me

understand myself.

From East to West

and all of the miles

in between.

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.

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

Speaking eloquently

IMG_9282

I watch and I breathe, taking you in

A study of line and shadow

Piercing darkness with light

To find hidden

The most vulnerable parts

That speak eloquently to my own

And which I choose to hold gently, delicately

Within my hands

My breath soft, quiet

This aching stillness

Just the beginning

:

*Written yesterday (6/9/18) as I enjoyed the solitude of a flight alone, my mind feverish with words.

Confession

img_3240

I give my confessions

to him.

In all honesty.

In complete acceptance.

Words spoken like an Act of Contrition

as I unveil my sins.

Sometimes singularly

and slowly

other times in tangled narratives

given in a rush of spleen

as I peel away the last vestiges of false image.

A veneer so sweet it made my teeth ache.

The insistence of honey over vinegar

made more palatable by convention.

The spicy, savory, and sometimes sour

oft disdained,

a whisky burn

not for the faint of heart.

Key

img_5235

Looks could be deceiving

But he always had her measure

Approaching each lock with care

Sensing

But not knowing

The result

As he fit the key within

Carefully

Purposefully

Each click of permission

As lock accepted key

A silent sigh of relief within him
