These sheets and slips Abide with time, Like tides and shores, Old pick up lines. These mountains climbed And sacrificed, To sheets and slips And angst-filled lives; That lost their way, Were found again, In the arms of a wayward, Weather-less vane. No wind or rain From north or south, No implications, fear or doubt.Continue reading “Sheets and Slips. A poem.”
Scene: a small, Italian restaurant. Two newly-matched. Time set aside. Something right and something wrong. Laughter and humility. Understanding and empathy. Certainty and unreality. Scene, set and match. Let’s do this all again, shall we?

You creep up on me An inveterate stalker A ghostly presence A firefly somnambulist (Shadowing its prey) You wrap me up (A Christmas treat) In sunflower petals An itinerant limpet Squeezing me senseless You take me down And bleed me until dry Subcutaneous showers (That eventually leave me) Drained and serendipitous Now we entwined SeekContinue reading “Twosome.

Sweat and toil and creaking springs, grasping fingers and the scent of hallowed limbs. Perfect and imperfect rhythms in motion, bestial howls and fire and tender susurration, collated in the half-light of a muted TV. From this vantage point we survey the hedonic battlefield, where dust and smoke dissipates and we victors rejoice with liquid tongues and golden perspicacity. The half-lightContinue reading “Half-light. A poem.”
Entwined, we two; encapsulated in a mad statement, read between lines and screamed between pages. A subtle madness, shortness of breath, long, laboured movement and languid, liquid refrain. Teetering on the brink of apogee, into a light that breaks this shared darkness and brings ecstasy. This pleasure and pain could last forever and a day,Continue reading “Entwined. A poem.”
I wished I wanted I needed My love to be more than I needed I wanted I wished Another poetic experiment. I like this one.
A poem about the misguided affairs of the heart. Swept up and swept away, never thinking about the real price you pay.
Yeah, I’m a bit of a sap when it comes to love.
Still looking. Still waiting. Still imagining.
I’ve got a good feeling.
Another experimental poem from me. Just in that kind of mood.
Despite what you might think after reading this poem, I am not into passing out during sex. It made for an interesting poem, though.
