Verify Me

As I stand before you aching
Tell me that you see me
That I penetrate profoundly

As I bow my head seeking gratitude
Tell me I expand you
Transform you essentially

As I grieve a life-stage spent
Tell me you are witness
To timeless beauty

As I stand before you yearning
Tell me something I once knew
Tell me I will become

Implosive

There’s something I’ve not told you
I might implode

Illusion
Desperation
Rumination
Woe

A story you’ve not heard about
I might give way

Obsession
Fixation
Climax
Dismay

If you learn the truth, my mystery
I might disintegrate

Elicitation
Interrogation
Disclosure
Fate

Mia’s Shoes

Pure girl upon the rails
You who wonders
Knowing not yet
The calling of your soul

Sweet blossom
Garnet lips of red
Brow furled, pondering
Edge of wonderment

Opalescent, olive skin
Dewy sweat of prancing youth
Cotton frock and underpants
Maryjanes your travel shoes

Buckles straight from history
Binding girlhood timelessly
Skip freely, my love
Step in sturdy, solid shoes

Girl

Gemstone pearl
Born of the sea
You are she
You are we

Rolling wave
On the cusp
Love body and lust
Flow to him
Ebb to me

Dark moontime
No longer asleep
Tide surging to the shore
Always she
Ever, ever we

Deep

Get deep with me
Dive in, dive down
Deep dive with me

Explore beneath superficiality
Fearlessly
Feel extremity

Life far from luminosity
Neurosensory
Complicated mystery

Get deep with me
Dive in, dive low
And then we will get high
