Month: November 2019



In the glorious, burning
splendor of deep love
are passion-filled nights
Overpowering and exciting
where all reason is lost
in wondrous heights
The slow, delicious descent
from the euphoric state
is a journey of gratification
Until lain crumpled and spent
in the forgotten ashes
of intimacy and adulteration

Surreal Dream

Surreal Dream

Dressed in white
I walked barefoot
on the surface of the moon
When upon me came
a carriage and horses
in the month of June
The sound of hoofbeats
on gravel evoked a memory
of a long-forgotten tune
and in the distance
I saw the dish running
away with the spoon

Armor – A Quadrille


Sealed tight
like a drum
Nothing gets in
or out
It cannot be undone   
That’s the way
it became
When deciding
to forsake our love
leaving me in shame   
Coming upon me
a brazen charmer
Knowing now
there is no crack
in my armor
