Siren Song

Silent waves

IMG_1218

Blue seas have their own language.

The undulation of dark through light

whispers and roars,

the world becomes strange

day to night. We search the silence

for words unsaid, feelings unfelt,

everything we’ve ever known …

Leaves for the leaving

FullSizeRender

 

A sweet October wind touches me

as sunlight trails a lovers

kiss across my skin;

the trees dance their last dance

before winter.

Leaves for the leaving.

A bittersweet farewell in umber,

the fall of red and gold

imbued with the longing

of a parting kiss.

Like air, I’ll rise

img_2817-1

Like air, I’ll rise

you cannot see me

yet I’m felt

like the wind that whispers your name

or touches you

unexpectedly

a cool caress upon your cheek

.

Like air, I’ll rise

and greet your lips

in a kiss

and like a snowflake

melt

from your heat

Unmet fire

With every wet kiss

and every shared breath

pull me deeper into you,

until you become

the oxygen for my lungs,

the blood in my veins,

and the heat to my skin.

My unmet fire

unfettered

in your hands

becomes a blazing need

liberated.

Burning

Breathe out the fire of this desire

and allow the flames

to crackle.

Burning up the hours

between yesterday

and today,

my kiss found

hidden

within the smoke signals

drifting

upon the horizon.

The night breathes

FullSizeRender

The night breathes

And sighs your name

It peels the covers away

And stealthily slips into my bed

My lover

To kiss away the moonlight

I am dressed in

To make wicked the waning dark

Bringing about a blush

To rival the dawn
