Oxygen

Dive deep into the ocean of love and sensuality
Swim through its currents
Experience the black waters
Its inertia
The blue waters
Beckoning and calling despite its danger
Backstroke through the crystals and yellow seas
See the beauty
Feel the magic
And experience the power and humility of trying to find peace
In its infinity
Wade through the magnetic force and atmospheric pressure
Of being trapped in an aquatic universe
Searching for air
With clouds taunting and passing above
Will you conquer or be conquered by love’s expansiveness?

An LP for Us

Like the crackle of a needle hitting the a 45"
Our moments together feel
Nostalgic
Even though
They’re happening in the present
Something about you feels familiar
Yet new
It’s pleasant and exhilarating
In the moment…

I feel a slight static
When your skin touches mine
My body feels more alive than it’s been in years
Your touch is sustenance
For a quieted part of starving soul
A part of me that had been tucked away
Trained to behave
Made to be more
Tame…

But the way your fingertips move so curiously, and eagerly
Traversing my thighs
A flow begins between my legs
Blood rushes to my head
My heartbeat bangs in my chest
That bass
Yes
My breathing speeds up
Our own tempo
I remember what being craved feels like when
I hear you sigh so heavily
Wanting me
And I want you more
Because of how visibly you desire me
Being with you is rest for the weary
Daylight after dreary
Routine

But our days are always short
Hours always feel like minutes
You’ve got to go
I’ve got to go
We have to become the past
We already are
Despite crossing paths again
In this life
This is a blip
A crossover that happened

Perhaps
As a rare gift from the universe
But it’s not ours to hold onto
We’re not meant for forever…

Best that way probably
Even though it hurts
I cling to our memories the way you clung to me
When you made a temporary home inside me
I clutch the reveries that come to me at their own will
The way you gripped my shoulders
And whispered in my ear
Remember me…remember me…I want you to remember me
A song for when you’re a long way from
That temporary home
In case you never return
Let our time together live on
In the black waters of our minds
The parts where no one else is allowed
Under the surface
Where they’re protected
It was so beautiful to play with you
Goodbye.

At Ease

Lose control and step out of the trenches
Abandon your responsibilities
And give in to your darkest needs
Your desires don’t have to make sense
The fact that you want what you want this is all that matters.

Stand at ease, Soldier.

Relax and explore
The depths and shores of me
Traverse and conquer
Or be conquered, if that’s what you crave.

Walk the edge with bare feet
Absorb and devour
Drift in and dissipate
Wade into my waters
I dare you
Make ripples
Make waves
Submerge until you need gills to breathe.

Celebration

Her smile washed over me
Like a million pieces of gold confetti
In slow motion
At daybreak
In an open field
She shimmered
And glowed with possibilities.

She was rhythm
A beautiful progression
Like the gentle tremble of a brush caressing a cymbal
But not the blues, no.

She was a subtle divinity
Her hue a supple oasis
Her voice, a sweet dark tea on a summer’s day
Brewed in the depths of her orchard soul
To quench the thirst of only those who are worthy to quaff it all.

Riptide

She came into my life as innocently as a love note
Found on a shore at dawn
A time and space unto herself
She was unexpected, but welcomed
Layered and intriguing
Wrapped in pure freedom
In a world where most freeze and
Are unsure
And
Uneasy
She breezes through
Carefree
Airy.

Her touch is divine
Making me uneasy yet relaxed at the same time
Like
Being on the edge of freefalling into bliss
But unable to let go
Restraint overpowers my eagerness
And my desire crawls inward
Where it’s safe…

She’s danger.

Or love
In its purest form
I don’t know
She’s unknown.
The very quintessence of a fantasy
A sex goddess…
Who is phenomenal at her job

So I hold back.

But I want to hold her gaze
While receiving
Lock into it. Unblinking. Unflinching.
To investigate the depths of her
Beyond the shore
Into the waves
Wide and narrow
Deep in the barrel
Where our energy connection
Conjures and whirls
A pool at my womb
That calls her name
And pulls her in
Pulls her in
Pulls her in…
And holds on tightly
While I ride waves in her timeless lair

I want to
Skim my fingertips against her jawline
Let my lips trawl and enjoy all contact
Of her skin
On my skin
From the palms of her hands
To her collar bones (slower)
To her lip line
To her spine
To her waistline
And the tip of her nose
To the blue polish on her toes
All over
And over
Again
With no end
I want to enrapture her soul
Kiss, lick, bite and hold
Onto the brief moments I have with her
But they’re fleeting
Never coming fast enough
And always ending too soon.

She’s a riptide.

Glassy, calm and serene on the surface
But with so
Much
More
Below
I know.

She makes my pulse quicken
My breath stop
My tongue parched
My body shiver
Shudder
And tremble
Trying to handle
My inability to let go
And freefall into bliss
I’m caught inside myself
When I lay back
With my back arched
And my toes curled
And her strokes furl
And glide all over me I wonder…
What in the entire Fuck?

I’m under spell…
With no distractions
The bliss is a risk
This woman is ecstasy
In spiritual form
A human body
Overtaken by a deity
And I want to devour her


Flip the scene
Turn the table
Clear the floor
Induce spontaneity
Imbue my own brew
Of magik
But I hold back
Because
She’s at work
And I am work
And my time is almost up
Time to slide off the crest
Put my feet on the sand
Amble back to the shore
And get back to reality

She’s a riptide.

But I keep going back.
