I've collected a jumble of names.
Like book titles each has a job.
Some make readers grin.
Some take them deeper,
enticing to turn one page, then another.
Some are meant to yank them between the covers
and not let go until the story's done.
Some are boundaries
between one part of life and another.
I leave them at our door.
Strip them off like garments:
the professional name,
the author names,
the avatar names.
So many names.
I don't know which is me.
When I step into our world,
into your arms,
into your love,
I'm a me I barely know:
No tag line.
In you I simply am.

She loves those first moments after a catch,
when the air is incensed,
tastes of desire.
She's caught in the twin spotlights

the rise and fall of breath coming in soft pants.
Chase was given and taken,
but the taking's not done.
A damp promise,
fragrant with passion's spice,
invites him to strip away the last layer,
spread his feast on lush meadow grass.
But he waits for it
letting the moment draw out,
anticipating an age old sign:
a lift of chin,
a tilt of head exposing a slender neck,
the soft flutter of lashes lowering.
A silent surrender of prey to hunter.

This is what I wanted: a hero
someone to help me
put out the little fires
that crop up around a life
I got: you
teaching me arson
fueling flames that licked my skin
singed my ideals
consumed and scattered them
like glowing embers across a sooty sky
This is what I wanted: a warrior
someone on my side
someone at my back through life's battles
I got: you
teaching me to sow conflict
to beat the plowshare to sword to em … Read More
