Unyielding love (Sonnet and haiku)

The lonely dove calls Seeking one, amongst many Bound by destiny Where this road may go, there I will follow Desire as my drive, love as my beacon Through dark fears that line depression’s hollow Into vales of addiction, far beyond reason I have tasted the edges of pleasure Been seared by the ecstasy of…

Guardians of the veil #prose and #poetry

There was a time it was easy, To turn off compassion and ignore empathy. It was our way, Taught from birth, A skill meant only for our people. And a task cursed upon us. That time is now past. Unable to love any, because we loved all. I could not love you while you were…

When The Night Calls. A sensual duet #poetry

I have set your heart on fire. It will never burn like that again, except for me. He takes a deep breath Ingests the scent of anticipation Hones onto the fragrance of possibility And revels in the aphrodisiac that dusk arouses She closes her eyes Blinds herself to the misogyny of this world She envisions…

Pieces of the Divine. A haiku tale

Sometimes a feeling of joy engulfs you, A gift from the universe. Where happiness comes from the most unlikely places.

Beyond beautiful Rich, plentiful and tempting But your ship, carries disease When each time I see you feels like a dream And your slightest smile preludes our future When…

The Artist of my Soul

What do you see #47 Oh to find the one Who knows you more than any Never to be yours Who are you that sees me so clear A voyeur who prowls my soul And drips between its layers Daring to divulge Secrets I did not know I had. How in so short a time…

The path we walk alone. #poetry

what do you see #46 Take a breath Calm your heartbeat A thump!…A sigh!… Step by step No time to lose Breathe… The journey is long And the day is hard But who knows what wakes in the night Sands that change Dunes that come alive Winds that thirst Quiet… Tread lightly… The shadows grow…

Lone Traveller

The traveller’s tale Embellished with mysteries Bejeweled in romance I searched for peace and along you came Fragrant as an autumn breeze Torchbearer to desire’s sensual flame Love’s emissary, breathing words that bring ease Through the hidden paths of lush forest trails Your hand was laced in mine Familiar, intimate and yet unknown. Through the…
