breaking the wheel

slipping back
into the comfort of night,
i delight in mysterious wanderings, and
the unanticipated invitations
of love, and
fear,
and all the fury in between.
only to slip back
into a clarity unwanted.

I dare you
to walk with me,
down this path
and
through these wicked gates,
into infinity
and beyond,
where
day meets night
to simmer soothingly
over hearth
and bone.

take a sip
of this future
seasoned with ash
and happenstance,
and,
just a dash of wonder.

wisps of dreams, and other hard currencies

ensorcelled
by Dawn’s sweet calm;

enraptured
by Dusk’s fiercely muted roar,

i find myself here alone,
with you
never to be found.

the very air sizzles
in between the errant
glide of silken miracles,
and the halting flow of
anticipation and
wonder.

a billion
tiny stars
exploding
all ’round
in a cacophony unexpected:
lights and smells dancing wild
and chaotic,
soothed only by a soul’s touch.

stimulated to the edge of ecstasy,
the beauty overwhelms,
but, my love,
please,
drink it all,
deeply and sinfully,
drink it all, and
seek nothing other
than that original bliss.

a realm of knowing,
infused with love
and the infinite of
possibility.

the baron awakens

burn through daylight shimmer
to soothe Night's beguiling sorrow,

lacing
dreams
with sacred perversions:
life interrupted-


oh
yeah.


solemn blasphemies
twistin' in the air
gently caressing
smoothened hackles.




should I but choose
to
shatter
your shackles,
such slippery wordplay
could be spiritual foreplay.


a stimulating beginning
to what wonders await;
a tender body
with soul afire.
