Honey Bee

Underweight, my words seem a little anemic when compared to the bloated world that surrounds me here. I feel the temperature in my throat it's almost time to take you to that sacred place. Retreat with me I'll keep your head afloat slightly above the rim. I won't let you drown under the weight of…

When Lovers Meet

I can't sleep until I've come here and knocked on this door to try and wake you into existence. We haven't met, yet I can describe you in exacting detail. My lover is already in me, I am not seeking you, but merely waiting on a chance meeting in order to be in awe and…

Treasure Hunt

The pleasure comes from the source. I don't mind waiting on a certain kind of girl. She turns, her smile escapes and my mind goes blank. I've never seen this kind of look before when she put her eyes squarely on me. She claimed the words were all hers. I want more time, from that…

The Trees Without Leaves

Beneath a night of mostly cold skies, I turned to face the girl and gave the look. She knew exactly what I wanted coming from her against this frigid night. We were standing near trees without leaves, freezing. She puts her hands in my pockets, smiled. The three layers mean't I wouldn't feel her attempt…

Mercy My Brother

The new steps take hold of me. I stand here in front of you, you listen from behind your door. Crying on this side of mercy do you promise you'll pray with me? I promise I've been praying since the start, since we were set free from brutal hands. The harsh air consumed my voice,…
