words have power

words dipped in blood,

more so.

just know

you will not remain



blood curses

and so curses

(the real ones, given power with blood)

fly from my heart

to find fertile ground

in yours

Need swallows need
until it’s
snake swallows tail
and we analyse
this darkness
until Sunrise.

restlessness and longing lay on my heart
the fires of forever
always out of reach
and so each day
weary of no promises
i drift

i see clouds building on every horizon
the promise of renewal

just one second

i saw a memory of you in my dreams
i felt the breath of you in the breeze
and the poignancy of it all
made me weep

It’s that one dropped stitch
in the dream we knit
that unravels it all in the end

Every night
Soft dreams of you
Still wash upon my shores
But every day
My heart’s deep ache
Seems to fade
A little more

Reading his words
No longer hurts
All i taste
Is deceit and dirt

He teaches me
deep secret prayers
filling me with sacred syllable
and the ecstasy
of love’s divinity

spellbinding me
he lays sigils on my skin
glyphs of feeling
traced with ancient magic meaning

He whispers to me
in the ancient language
that every soul knows
chanting me to deeper feeling
until i am singing my response

The heartbreaking tenderness of savage love

An endless spinning moment
held in a gasped breath
eyes closed tight
to grasp the dream of dying

The exquisite torments we call love

Every whisper
in this heady mix of scent and sensation
becomes a prayer
a breathless invocation
