I fell asleep

I fell asleep feeling love,

The warmth in my heart glowed.

I passed into slumber unannounced,

Held in love you have to know.

I couldn’t have been happier,

I couldn’t ask for more.

Than how you hold me tight,

And keep the flame burning at my core.

I fell asleep feeling love,

The warmth in my heart still burns.

For distance cannot change that fact,

No matter how fast this world turns.

Flames of Love

The after glow of a steady burn,

As embers dim, stoking I yearn,

Memories of nights set aflame,

Smiling fondly, I’m sure you’re the same.

I’ll never forget, what you give,

I hope you know, it’s for you I live,

It’s only you that lights my eyes,

It’s only you I need by my side.

So now I wait, as you, so patiently,

Waiting for our flames, again set free,

Then we’ll lie together, side by side,

To see the flames of love reflected in gazing eyes.

Days At Our Feet

The days fell to our feet
And we owned every single one of them
Inside each rise, we made them set
Love was where we placed our bet
We were the only game in town
A fantasy? A dream?
Under the cotton clouds
The musty deceit darkened
Our room, our passion
Fingers grasping flesh
Pinching for realness
But, we played on…
Oiled to ease
(Oh daddy…please…..)
Sliding, gliding
So far inside one another
Your bags that smother
This life we live, in secret
This love we give, in secret

My turn, for night

Waiting my turn, waiting for night
Another hot flash rips me apart
Better sex, better everything…
My body is ablaze!
It’s a true midlife crisis!
A 911, with no place to call
The earth suddenly shook
And I wondered if it was my ancestors
Rolling in their graves
Turning their backs
Away from me
From what I’m doing…
I’m still going to wait
For my turn,
For the night
Middle age, sometimes it feels like a cage
But when I’m with you Beast, I feel free❤️

Years ago

It was that seventies groove…
And my hips knew it,
Those dirty little sluts…
I had stars in my eyes,
Turning my scabs into scars
And the percussion beat in my heart
And possibility was my concussion
Dislodging, dislocating
I danced for love
I danced for life
I danced for…you
One track, one mind
And it was then that I wrote you a song…
Even though I didn’t know you back then
You were my prayer in secret
My wish into the mirror
The lyrics unfolded from my soul
And released into the universe…
And I felt truly alive❤️
