Null and void.
No longer does she wait.
It was but a dream state, that felt like immersion in liquid amber.
Hot, sweet, and tangy, with a dash of salt.
Richly hued and imbued with tones of cotton candy, Crème Brûlée and swirling Sangria.
Now, simply a bowl filled with the remnants of water colours mixed together. Gently graying as each moment ticks by.
When the hues are gone, there will be nothing left.
And parted lips, that so longed to be next, will silently close.
Ending a very long chapter of the heart.
something I don’t know
make it delicious.
Tantalize with your words
spin a web of sin
so that I may catch myself in the silken threads.
Hold me close
that mean everything.
Talk to me of the stars and their incandescence
whilst waltzing through a dream.
I want to know what it’s like to be entranced, entrenched and enchanted.
Would it be so wrong, if thoughts of me brought you to your knees?
What would it hurt, if my lips were your savior?
Would the world stop spinning on its axis, if the soft sweetness of my skin was your comfort?
Do you believe that my fingertips, trailing across your cheeks, could bring you peace?
Will you let me in?
It’s quiet now.
My mind, which races through the days
slows like molasses.
Darkness permeates the room
allowing me to float effortlessly
No restraint, untethered and free.
sparkling bits of universal dust
drift about like fairy magic.
My heart says “make a wish”
Then suddenly, the word appears.
The letters are crisp and clean but with a softness about the edges.
Re-entry into the body is gentle.
There is –
You were my first.
I saw fireworks when we kissed.
Brilliant red and blue skyrocketing behind closed eyes.
I remember our first hours.
Rain, wind and thunder stormed outside as passion and curiosity blossomed in Porsche leather.
I ran scared after that evening.
But you gently persisted.
And then I fought no more.
I remember your words on that fourth of July –
“We are no longer just friends, now we are lovers”
You were my confidant.
Thank you for teaching me that trust and honor did exist.
For giving me peaceful sleep while listening to your heart beat.
Until the very last day of our acquaintance your kiss brought weakness to my knees.
Thank you for loving me.
For whispering words of tenderness in my ears
and giving me a part of your heart …
I know such beauty still exists somewhere.
I will persist …
.. Lulu the Princess Bean ..
I worry at times that she doesn’t know how to get comfortable.
