In the room but absent …..

Lost & Found; part 1

last_kiss_by_deignis-d49vp5a

 

It was brief

Wordless

The connection of our bodies

Deeper than the ocean

While our minds skated past each other

Neither asked for more

Nor held on at our parting

And in the decades passing

Occasional fleeting reminders

Of reaching in the darkness

Across sweat slicked skin

Of smooth rippled torso

Or sweet smelling softness

And sipping stinky pernod , laughing

Briefly

We wondered

Where are you

Smile

She’s always swimming against the flow of the thick soup

With a history of purple bruises and invisible arrows

Scratching her head at the cross roads

Sarah only smiles when she sees the cues

When she falls she’s bounces

The scars heal quickly

While the aura slowly bleeds

Every choice accompanied by a thorny rose

Beautiful and brilliant further away form familiar tortures

Into the arms of the sweet unknown

Sarah only smiles when she can

The breaks heal quickly

While the mind screams silently

She’s dancing in the kitchen twirling in the smoke

Leaving the African Potteries crushed beneath

Pulling sufferers out of the soup

Into the freedom of understanding

Sarah only smiles to soothe them

Sarah only smiles

When she can

Passing Time

Creepy Bedroom By Pablo Vazquez

 

I’m making no promises, I’m just passing time

You came here to seek my embrace and run fingers along the roundness

To feel the comfort in the softness of my thighs

Discover more about yourself through my words or eyes

It’s cold out there, in here warmth and smiles

So roll over and embrace me

Gather up in a crush and hold on tightly

But no longevity lives here with me

Seek forever elsewhere

I’m just passing time

Man & Love; part 3

story1sedami780x390

Provider, provide

Gentle touches in times of stress

Laughter in the moments of madness

Time to nurture and grow our story

Protector, protect

Our dignity in the face of disaster

Respect in the fire of anger

Raise a shield over those claimed

Together, we

Sow seeds to reap in later days

Strengthen shoulders for leaning

Record memories to cherish

Alone at sea

a dark

When all is quiet and the breath falls heavy and high
As the air slowly thickens in the corners of the room
Shadows long and dark loom, sentinels over my fixed lines
The blank canvas above swirls with imaginary ebbs and flow
As silence gives way to the flutter in my ear
While the edges trace the cupids bow
Adrift, as I am, on a sea of Egyptian cotton
Residue of past coupling whisping up into the air
Anchorless, floating on a tide of longing
Little whispers of sighs lost in solitude
Unheard by the shipmate of a life
