the second before a metamorphosis

The protective veil is gone I felt it leave             fierce it tore, like a commanding lover burning violet flames in his core I could do nothing to stop the veil from slipping                       away only a second to say farewell             to all I’d clung to                   to all I’d known only a second to prepare for …

Melting point

Golden Pink Gone

At least a dozen Happy Hours are just down the road; a theme and special for every liking. Attractive and peppy attempting to lure people into their brand of happy. “No thank you, I have somewhere else to be.” The hue is changing, I must move quickly. Cheers to their form of happy – pouring, …

From my knees, I would praise, but never once have I thought myself worthy of such magnificence. …

Sweet and Fierce is She

Hers is a heart of extremes; rare it seems. Two atriums pumping independently: sweetly and fiercely, blood merges into one life force. Buried under skin and bone is the source. Never trapped, never contained; her heart extends to the edge of the universe. In its chambers, lives two: a gentle child safeguarded from corruption and …

Passion in the Park (poem, photos, & live music)

Toward him my heart turned when I heard his words,       “With your hand in mine,       we can walk through any space and time       and leave behind       this crawl space with its narrow mind       we can’t deny what we’ve been searching for, for all our lives       yes, you and I, with love wings we can fly…” …
