Kiss her in the dark on moonlit night, caught unawares on snow strewn path caress her face from brow to chin fingers buried in her hair surrender to her sensual mouth Inflame her urgency Slip under, over, around her skin smoldering ecstasy of embrace unbind her, unfold her, tangle her limbs bend and mold her to your will rise and fall in lustrous wonder A shiver in the spine Washed in light of blushing stars wound in moonspun webs Kiss her in the dark again, then again For she will not resist you
Wafting on a mystic breeze
I plucked your name from the air
cradled it gently in my hands
carried it with reverence
to a secret place
shielded from curious glances
in coherent communion, I placed it on my tongue
to find it… sinfully pleasing
drunk with every essence of you
stumbling and slipping
in a rapture I had never known
to the water’s edge I writhed
in a swirling single motion
on a gentle kiss thrown to the wind
back your name I blew
something so delicious
I could not taste of
Fearing I’d lost you, I became frantic…
nauseated, weepy, dreamy
…for a split second
before I realized
I never had you
Alone did I stand on the plains of madness
calling out for a helping hand from my comrades.
But my cries were but in vain for not one did send forth their palms
but instead turned and forgotten about me.
So forward did I continue and upon the steppes of my mind
falling into the dark swirling chaotic rapids of woe
and upon losing consciousness in the rage I felt the cold embrace of death.
I awoke upon the river’s banks and gazing upon a magnificent raven.
With wings wide and large he flapped away towards he flew to a light.
Feeling nothing to lose as I have been broken and thrown away I followed the creature.
A sight befell me and I saw a simple golden plaque that read.
No matter what will happen to you in your life
know that only you are responsible for what happens to you
and never let the darkness in your mind take you
always let the light shine bright.
Weeping bitter sweet tears did I feel the weight of my self loathing and rage leave me,
with each tear the load was lighter and the pain faded and even though
I was empty inside I felt though as if a little flower had bloom
in a desolate desert and in side I knew
I was piecing together myself.

Special thanks to Sadie for honouring me with this peer award. I have connected with some really great people on WordPress. She is one of the finest. http://justsomethingiwasthinkingabout.com/
The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers. Liebster is German and means sweetest, kindest, nicest, dearest, beloved, lovely, kind, pleasant, valued, cute, endearing, and welcome.
In accordance with acceptance Sadie has prepared eleven questions for me to answer.
1) Do you have more than one blog?
No. I did have a Blog previous to this one tied in with a Web Hosting service which effectively “knocks” you out of the WordPress community.
2) Do you like (good) surprises?
Not always, no.
3) Favorite book and why
I can’t name a specific book. I’m a very prolific reader and there are so many.
4) Night-owl or morning person?
Night, night, night.
5) Do you write & hit publish right away or do you spend a considerable amount of time editing?
I’ve often taken more time to edit than to actually write.
6) Would you stop & help a turtle cross the road?
Yes, especially if he was wearing a top hat.
7) Do you know your blood type? (And NO I don’t want to know, but you should if you don’t!)
8) What would the name of the movie based on your life be?
Loose Encounters of the Worst Kind
9) Who inspires you?
People in my life who I find fascinating and complex.
10) What is the one thing (single most important) you itch to do in life?
Live in a Castle.
11) What is holding you back?
I’ve never been very competitive or ambitious.
I was also asked to nominate eleven other Bloggers for this peer award. I could only find four Blogs I follow that meet this criteria. If I’ve missed anyone I apologize.
They are as follows:
Here are my eleven questions for my nominees:
1) Are you in love with someone you can’t be with?
2) Is fame and fortune your goal?
3) Did you make someone smile today?
4) Do you ever take afternoon naps?
5) Have you ever eaten an insect?
6) Have you ever watched the sun rise?
7) What would you request for your last meal?
8) Why did you start a Blog?
9) Do you have secrets you can’t tell to anyone?
10) Let’s pretend you had a previous life. Who do you think you were?
11) Can you describe yourself in one word?
Again, Sadie I would like to thank you. Without being terribly macabre, I’ve been in a very dark place for a very long time. You’ve helped to “lift” me considerably. I believe that’s the greatest thing we can do for each other.
we followed a map
plotted a course
determined a route
observed all speed limits
obeyed all traffic signs
never altered from our destination
we still got lost
we are only passengers here
intersected by currents of time
speeding towards inevitable
