Night Call

a sliver
of a whisper
draws me back
to you.
i cannot help but stare,
and the wanting
leaves me ravenous.

the wickedness
of this memory’s tangibility
lifts my sunken heart.


and the beauty
of solitude,
pristine like a perfect winter day
chills this fiery soul.

a day of neverending calm,
free of the fields of feeling
that hosted our summer play.
free
of the love
that fear sent away.

so in the corners of this night
I reach for you
with these words,
but the darkness has fallen,
and hope has too.

Guts

fluttering down
upon your forehead-
like a promiscuous butterfly
seeking soul nectar.

or,
flowing freely from the heart
after rhapsodic wrestlings
with your perfect Muse,
soaring to the depths of wildest abandon.

or,
sore from the kicks,
and heaving from exhaustion,
Inspiration belches
forth from a weeping gut-
ready to spin beauty from the void within.

LP No. 32_2021_the ridge

i used to walk along our ridge
looking out to you,
feeling swarmed in our love.

that ridge has crumbled
and now i walk alone.

i found a path, with which to make my way
but still
i look out to you, and
blinded by the solitude,
continue on.

so i wander
purposely without aim
through deserts of desire
and valleys of fear.
i walk on
searching for the glory
i once placed in you.

LP No. 31_2021_double alchemy

when hate clouds my actions,
loving kindness
rains
from the depths of your soul.

when lust and loathing shrink your heart,
my boundless sensuality will enfold us,
deeper
into magnetic ecstasy.

fears melt away
in the fire of our passion,
as we join in a crucible of love.

we are wizards,
you
and
i

manifestors of truth,
and benders of reality.

we forge a new way,
towards the infinite.

so cleave to me my beloved,
let us build our world together
and drown our bliss
in endless pleasure.

LP No. 22_2021_twice scorched

racing,
gracefully, across the burning dawn,
her sliver of wonder catches my eye,
setting a flame to the magic inside.

…and she moves on.

triumphant, vainglorious….untested,
and blessed
with a golden touch of destiny,
a new day rises.
filled with promise
and hopes undeclared.

and so, a great joy grows in my chest,

yet i long
for my lady of the night.

i yearn for her mystery, and thirst
for her wisdom.

so i wait
for darkess to fall,
so we are free to fly,
together again.
