The sky fills with stars
Then goes to just one
Again and again
As I wait for you
My Lord
My love
I do so tirelessly
For a moment with you
Is worth it all
The pain and tears
The longing and fears
That come and go
As I wait for you
My Lord
My love
To be without you
Is to be without my heart
Beating in my chest
Pushing life through my body
And your love through my veins
As I wait for you
My Lord
My love
The night is long
And silence unkind
Leaving me with my thoughts
Driving my heart to madness
Yearning for your touch
As I wait for you
My Lord
My love
Forever yours
Eternity my goal
I pledge my love to you
Again and again
Until your return
I will remain
Waiting for you
My Lord
My love

Radha

Image

I remain
Hidden from your sight
Just to be with you
My love

My desire
Consumes me
Each moment we’re apart
Burning me alive
Scratched skin
And a careless look
The spark

For every way
You are mine
Is a reason to hide
And pray
For when the darkness comes

Cloaked in night
To you I fly
Wings stretched wide
To blot the starlight
And bare my all
To you alone

Here
Where eyes matter not
All is made clear
With pressed lips
That part briefly
Only to whisper sweetness
Unmatched
By divine nectar

Kissing your eyelids
I pray them shut
Before I leave
This earthly plane
Silently
I curse the morning light
And take my place
Hidden in the sun
With tears in my eyes
Until night joins us
Again

Poetry

And Cupid Wept

Image

Wielding
Wish and desire
I strike
At the soul
Within the stone
That dwells
In my daydreams

Delicately
I free her
With every blow
From the limits of fantasy
To my unlimited reality

She takes shape
Beneath my hands
Becomes known
To my eyes

With every moment
I spend
In her presence
Her lines extend
Beyond the mind
And into my soul

Envisioning
Smiles
That have not curled
Words
That have not formed
Kisses
That have not flown
I shape the mouth
That I would savor
For an eternity

I draw the lines
Of her hair
Flowing in waves
From the head
That holds memories
Of a life not yet lived
Captivating me
With every bend
And a fragrance
Unknown to stone

The chisel sings
The tones of her voice
As she calls out to me
With arms wide
Legs astride
And a body
That feels like home
My shelter
My safety

Complete
In every way I know
She stands before me now
So full of life
But not breathing
Restrained
By a daydream
The hands of Fate
Can reach

With hands empty
Heart open
I pray
For Aphrodite’s gaze
Grant this fool’s wish
To feel you
See you
Love me
As I have always loved you
My Galatea

Poetry

Galatea

Image

My lady of midnight
Walking endlessly along
The pathways of my heart
Hoping to reach me

I remain waiting
For your return
To see your breath
Dance in the cold night air
To hear dead leaves crackle
Beneath your feet
To feel the warmth of your hand
As it gets lost in mine

Your memory comes alive
In those fleeting hours
Between the suns
When the world sleeps

We danced our endless waltz
For no one but you and I
Out of sight
Yet in full view
Our hearts became one
And now beat on
Into eternity

On that night
Stuck in the tangle
Of lips and limbs
You uttered the words
That left me with none in return
Truth in every letter
Farewell in every space

Alone
I watch the sands slip by
Powerless to change their flow
As they move the hands
A minute at a time
My breath held firmly
Eyes wide
I pray
For midnight to come again

Poetry

Domina Noctis

Image

He’s not here
The bright eyed
Rosy cheeked
Little boy
With black hair
And
A face that knew
Nothing
But love and laughter
I look
Deeper and deeper
Into the looking glass
He’s nowhere to be
Found
Gone forever
Lost to
Time
Or so I believe
Because of the face
That stares back at me
Gray
Burnt
Worn
With eyes that glow dim
Their light extinguished
By the weight of
Knowledge
Desire
And
Time
I can still feel him
Somewhere
Lingering in
My mind’s eye
Forever dreaming
Pretending
Wishing
Hoping
I hope
I wish
He’d come back
Breathe new life into me
Restore my view
Of everything
Help me
Believe
Again
He is as far
And as close
As the reflection before me
Yet I will never see him again
That sweet boy
Like flowers in Spring
Instead
All I see are
Ashes
Gray
Burnt
Worn
Ashes
I close my eyes
Can’t bear to look at me
Not now
Not this
Time
And I tell myself
The only thing I can
It’s okay
We all fall down

Poetry

Ashes

ghost-fi

I watch the pavement weep
Beneath my feet
As once perfect raindrops
Now broken flow
Through the cracks on this road
With every step I take
Closer to you

My breaths linger on the air
Like clouds before the rain
Ghosts of the life I lived
A moment ago
Lost in memories
Of your breath on my skin
On my way to you

My footsteps have slowed
These tears now are mine
Falling like perfect raindrops
At the thought of breaths
You can no longer breathe
Memories of you linger here on the air
The ghosts that bring me back to you

Poetry, Writing

Ghost

forever-fi

With those hands
I love so dear
Rip me open
Separate the pieces
Break me down
To the place
Where humanity and divinity meet
My spirit
My soul
Because I want you
And want you to see
That I am nothing
And you are everything
I have set aside myself
For you my love
Forever
Witness why
You consume me
Defeat me
Sustain me
Let your fingers dive
Into me
Deeper
Deeper still
Until you can hold it
Hold me
Hold you
In your grasp is
Beauty eternal
Love everlasting
Me
Forever
Pull it towards you
The you I am
The real you
Find yourself in me
I am
The infinite shelter
Relentless protector
Unceasing servant
Of the immortal you
My love
You are safe here
Within me
Beneath this tangle of
Flesh
Blood
Bone
And here you will remain
Forever

Poetry

Forever

Image

On this black plane
They slide
They collide
They crash
The angel, devil and man
They are all one
Inside this mind
Yet divided they become
When they war
The angel weeps
The devil sneers
The man bleeds
None the stronger
All the weaker
Heaven’s silent gaze
Unwavering
Hell’s demon mouth
Gaping
Earth’s core
Crumbling
Harmony is lost
The balance broken
So to my knees I fall
My fingers piercing space
Flesh
Bone
Breath
Holding all
In that instant
The angel’s eyes open
The devil’s face doubts
The man’s heart beats
They spin again
Their delicate dance resumes
And they watch closely
As I slowly mend
This hole
In the Universe

Poetry

Lacuna In Universum

stand-up-fi
Pick yourself up
Grab yourself by the collar
And pull
With all you can
With all you are
With all you can be
Stand up
You are here by the love
Of those who came before you
And for the future
Of those who come after you
No time for tears
But shed a few if you must
No time for regrets
But take one last look behind you
No time for fears
But know your weaknesses
For the harvest is here
You just need to ask for it
Reach for it
Cry out for it
Embrace the light
That rains down around you
But you’re too blind to see
Blinded by your own arrogance
Your dependence on yourself
Your darkness
So stand up
Ask
Receive
And you will not fall again
Never like this
Because He said so

Poetry, Writing

Stand Up

Image

precipice-fi
Searching no more
I have found it
The truth of me
The essence of my spirit
My purpose
It stands before me
In its enormity
And grandeur
Just being this close
It drives vigor
Into my veins
My mind
My soul
I have but to let go
And let God
To fall into it
Fall where I may
But I don’t
I can’t
I won’t
I cower
I cling
To fear
To comfort
To stability
My heart screams “Go”
My mind whispers “Not now”
And so I stand
Motionless
Lifeless
On the precipice
Of living my dream
And
The life I only dream of
