Say My Name

What weight does it bear
On your mind
What taste does it hold
On your lips
Abandoned by its owner
You gave it a home
It’s power long dormant
Once awakanened and
Spoken with desire
Control is yours



I want to hear your voice
In my heart
I want to feel you passion
In my mind

My chest quakes
And silence ceases
As if my existence
Never knew peace

Faith degrades to hope
And hope to desperation
I’ve lost sight of reality
Trapped in my own invention


The Heavens were so inclined
To divine for me
A respite
In this soft dream
I had no anxiety
No lack of courage
Nor reason to hide
You were simply
You looked my way
And kissed the air

Heaven blessed me one time before
The real you
Soft flesh
And kind eyes
I’ll pay any cost
For more than a dream
My Greed; My Lust
For sure, I will be damned
But the Devil may not touch
My Soul
If it is in your hands

Longings For An Oasis

I do believe
this is a familiar feeling.
The cooling touch of water
at my feet,
as I stand alone
in my desert,
barren since the dawn.

My eyes strain
in this new light.
But I can feel it
in my heart,
the thundering vibrations
of an oncoming flood.
My hand clutches at my chest.

And yet I smile.
What once brought terror
now brings real excitement.
I feel the seeds of life
weighing heavily in my pocket.
Perhapse they’ll take root,
and I’ll share the shade with you.
