Slipping

It was not hard to slip away. He didn’t have too many idle moments I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to hear his voice. Maybe I would be lucky and get inspired again. He had a gift of pulling out the best in me, unfortunately that was not the only thing he pulled out….

Black Roses

You can spend every moment of everyday Worrying your life away. Wanting something you can’t have Living in a kingdom of lack. Being,  -Bereft, deficient, inadequate… Interlaced in the asseveration of your lover  Like Soft cobwebs caught on fingertips.  Deception like black roses. The intention is to be a thing of beauty But in actuality…

Do you love me?

She said yes. She looked you earnestly into your eyes  And relented. She gave into the pressure that was applied. She struggled at first,  But then,  Like a virgin, she broke way Feeling less and less of the pain of the breaking. Against all odds She chose to love you. Even though it was not…

It becomes a manifestation  Of those original thoughts That dwell, When I miss you. Temptation makes it worse. It…

Spiritually, I want to be able to walk with my head held high. Morally,  I want to be able to sleep at night. Eternally, I want to be loved. I want to feel loved. But first, I must be love And give love. One cannot be so abrasive and negative, If you want softness and…

Split

There must be a better way… To find acceptance in love is fleeting. To find acceptance in sex is misleading. But still, We spread our legs and spread ourselves thin. Just to experience the richness and fullness of being together, But note that just because you are being filled, doesn’t mean that you are fulfilled…
