Come and inspire me, come and pull my strings, save me from silent glaring mannequins

I’m in need of a waterfall crashing down steep hills in cascades of feelings

You, I will let you

Whiskey with ice is a crime committed by swines and pitch-black hearts

Break the glass, select the largest shard – stab convention keeping us apart

You, I will let you do

Breathe heavy and deep, drown my faded pink, exhale burgundy reds with your lips on my neck

I walk, you follow, I talk, you swallow, inevitable thoughts of your tongue down my throat

You, I will let you do anything

We glide down parallel lines, I’m here and you’re there, you want me, throw the dice, live & dare

Take your time, please come fast, we’ve fallen, crossed over, it’s so late – too late in the day to be scared

You, I will let you do anything to

It’s not you, it’s me—it’s not me, it’s you—we’re so much of the same – balanced on opposite sides of the scales

On my skin, on my heart, it’s not a stain, it’s your name—you’re calling mine, in the dark—it is right, it is sane

You, I will let you do anything to me

*Is anybody else exhausted due to General Election? What a week it’s been. Special thanks to my friend Adam for closing it in style with me late last night, or rather early this morning*

      1. You’re so FAR from nonsense it’s unbelievable. I wish you saw that. I’m going to believe in you for three lifetimes and eventually you’ll see what I see, a gorgeous magnificent girl with green-bleu eyes and a writers brightened soul.

  1. I love the way the recurring voice slowly manages to get its words out in the end. I read it as a returning whisper, floating in after the boldness of the verses only to be interrupted by the intensity of the stronger, more urgent declarations. But it had its say in the end, and that was perfect, like a whispered confession.
    Welcome back! I hope this means your slump has been banished? 🙂 Thank you for the mention, and thanks again for another wonderful evening of rambling and drinking! It was definitely worth the wait! 🙂
