Black beauty running free,
just like you are meant to be.
“Why don’t you tame him?” She asked me one day.
My heart did not know what to say,
as I watched him roam, wild and free, hoping he would come back to me.
“He needs no master,” I began to say
“He needs his freedom. The choice must be his.”
She nodded and moved away. I continued to watch, hoping he would stay.
My heart went with him, when he left.
And my soul healed, for I have been blessed;
with a heart to give, and a heart to keep.
For loving myself is just as sweet.
Stained sheets tousled, like her hair.
Radiant glow, bodies flushed, pair entwined in a dream filled sleep.
One moves the other follows, maintaining that basic connection.
A touch, leg to leg, shoulder to back, hand to hip…
The need to know the other is there, fulfilled. The desire to never let go sustained in the moment.
For the moment is all that matters.
Authors original version and note can be found here.
I do not need the recognition,
I do not require being seen,
One voice among the millions,
Easily drowned out
Except by those who need to hear it.
The ones whom my words touch,
The few that need the spark,
Those who need to know they are not alone.

Little babe attached to my breast.
Consuming every moment of my day and night.
My odd patience, despite fatigue, a constant reminder of how much I love him.
Space, I’ve given you (again)
___when I know your answer.
Hope, (silly fool that I am) wants me to be wrong.
Time, (that your buying) will not change a thing.
_____Just elongates the deception, for your vanity does not want to accept the truth.
You are as awful as you feared.
Everlast bag, microcosm of my aggression, tattered and twisted on the floor;
much like me.
i grit my teeth
A broken heart can be slow to heal.
A new partner can numb the pain
will still be broken
A new life can distract from the pain Continue reading
For years, I’d look at a little bundle of joy, and feel that pang of want.
The emotional sensation of yearning, and love, mixed with a tightness in my heart, and tears welling up behind my eyes.
Except for today Continue reading
Sly smile, a tease on her lips, as she watchs for your reaction.
Tilts her head slightly, smile becomes coy, eyes dance.
Your heart beats faster. Continue reading
Dandelion seeds sprinkle the air.
Tiny parachutes of fluff dancing on the wind; my hopes and dreams with them. Continue reading
