A Wicked Kiss

I can feel you wrap around me Before you’re even near You healed the scars inside me Intentions always clear Your hands touched me so slightly So soft I almost missed How carefully you loved me With only just a kiss I crave the feel of your skin The way it looks next to mine…

Fine Wine

You were like a fine wine Going down smooth Pleasantly poisoned To lighten the mood You spread thru my veins An ounce at a time numbing inhibitions  Everything’s fine I sipped the forbidden Welcomed you inside Slipped into fantasy  As my reality died  Original poem by E.Snell  

Absence of Light

I often find myself staring at the ceiling for an hour before my alarm goes off. I wonder why I am there. Awake.. just starring into the inevitable darkness. But that’s the point. Isn’t it? Everything ends in darkness. It is either physical or emotional. It’s when you feel that darkness that you need to…

A Beautiful Storm

You came like the rain Took on your own form Flashed like the lightning What a beautiful storm You Rattled like Thunder I could hardly go astray Whipping like the wind You took my breath away The tides came in high I fell at your feet The stars had aligned We were destined to meet…

Saying Goodbye

The time has come Piteous goodbyes  Riddled the air With sorrowful eyes I can tell you’re not here As you embrace what I say Remorse is long gone Love failed to stay No tears seem to fall How could this be? My heart is breaking  Now that you’re free My world turned to black While…

Unwelcomed Addiction

I can feel your presence in the air An unwelcome accuracy My heart is held by only you I am at your mercy Consumed in whole by my heart I have no room for me You are my existence What else could it be? The way I feel when your around I couldn’t give reasons…

What. When. by Ricardo Sexton

What will ‘time’ sum up to us When the dawn comes to bite What will say the wall’s voice When ‘story’ it starts to write A film, what category choice In a B-screen, who’ll play us What look will predict/cross What book will contradict us When the shards are nothing When the ‘valid cards’ are […]…

Review: Yours To Bare by Jessica Hawkins

I don’t. I pick her up, bend her spine, spread her pages. From the first word, I’m a goner. The owner didn’t give me access to her most intimate desires, but I devour them anyway. Her private darkness, her candid, explicit poetry—it all goes down like warm milk. And from that point forward, I drink, eat, and sleep her.

Self Reflections

I see it mirrored in your eyes the person I fail to be Kept behind a hidden mask too lost for you to see Embraced within sheltered arms wrapped up in deceit  Glimmers of hope fading fast while falling at your feet I can hardly tell where I begin where the deception becomes real Losing…

Why Do We Write?

We write to find emotion passive or extreme A violent stain of passion we’re fighting for a dream We pause the world around us express ourselves thru ink Striving for the light it’s into the darkness that we sink We light a feud within us a pen stroke at a time Extending fingers thru key strokes…

Blue Eyed Devil

Blue eyed devil you are my world the one that consumes my life and heart Blue eyed devil you took my pain ripped my soul then made me war Blue eyed devil you healed my soul gave me life then stayed by my side Blue eyed devil you have the key that will lock me…

Shattered Heart

From the very start I walked my separate way without love I began to wonder… What is wrong with me? Is it time to let go? Time to dry my tears? Wipe away memories That now stream with fear? Always together but tearing apart Broken inside but a fighter at heart I know this routine…
