Memories in the ashes

I will not sift through the memories in the ashes,

in hopes of finding a remnant 

of what once was.

An image of unadulterated joy.

A steppingstone to more.

For the bridge crossed no divide,

it was a path to nowhere,

so I lit the match

and watched it burn.

Fire

fullsizerender

Bypassing the silky saccharine

of some

he chose the smooth and spicy essence

of her.

The sweet cinnamon flecks that he saw

only hinted at her fire.

Deceptively innocent

they left him unprepared

and vanquished

by her burn.

Sunday confessions

FullSizeRender8.jpg

These Sunday confessions

roll off my tongue

like an Act of Contrition…

.

On my knees,

my tender

sensual

confessional

for your ears

only.

.

Sundays,

always the potential

for sin.

.

His name upon my skin

burning through my clothes

my Sunday secret.

.

Sunday service will be

kneeling

and thoughts

I choose not to repent.

.

He says prayers,

but only into the softness

of my skin.

.

Lost in your sweet sermon,

no prayers would be more earnest

as I await the burn

of your brimstone,

of your fire.

.

Sundays

dedicated to worship,

but only in the most sinful ways.

.

Until my next Sunday confession…

Unquenchable fire

FullSizeRender

This desire I have for you

is an unquenchable fire

One that never has me

retreating to safety

but rather

flinging myself into the inferno

To burn

magnificently

with you

Believer

IMG_5735

I will be your Joan of Arc

in visions of holy devotion

and divine worship.

As you lay siege

to my mind

my body

and to my soul

I will bring truth to your words.

I will illuminate the darkness

as I burn for you. 

I will make you a believer.

Through Your Eyes

photo

Your words

The ones that make me

Sigh and tremble

Burn and ache

Are also the ones

That helped me to see myself

Through your eyes

Through them I saw

The woman

The goddess

Hidden within

Needing to be freed

From the chains of convention

Needing to be allowed

To embrace

My natural sensuality

The woman finally at home

In her own skin

And loving it

Summoning Torch

Your words

Were like

A summoning torch

For the woman within me

Who needed a man like you 

To show her

How bright her fire was

And how she could burn

Slowly and deliberately

Finding exquisite pleasure in it
