For Your Eyes Only …

I fret over what you’ll see
If you look too closely.
I fear you may find
I’m just a monster in disguise.
One foot in reality
The other always wandering.
Forever split in two
By these worlds in my mind.
But if you promise,
We can seal it with a kiss,
I’ll keep your truth hidden
From prying eyes.
Because I see inside,
You’re a monster just like I am.


The prompt spurred something else but it fits with a different project I’m working on so I’m keeping it to myself for now.

Also, Jimi Hendrix Both Sides of the Sky … is just grand. 

Oh, and it’s my 2 year anniversary of starting this blog apparently! I didn’t post much my first year but to celebrate (of sorts) here’s my more popular post of 2016 (with a whopping 20 views). 

Filthy Love

You’re dirty,
Unkept hair and grungy hands.
You’re filthy,
As your cigarette dangles

The smoke wafts, slow and pungent
Your filthy smile, your stormy eyes.

Watching me
Watch you.

Wringing your filthy hands,
How I long for them

You’re dirty
Slow burn and fading ash.
You’re filthy
As you pull me close.

The smoke conceals, thick and dark
Your filthy words, your gentle lips

Seducing me
Seduce you.

Sliding your filthy hands,
How I long for them

You’re dirty
So filthy,

As you pull me
To my knees.

As I pull you
Into me.

Spin Me Away

Sunday! Again and again.

I didn’t do this last Sunday because of family issues (and Easter, we can say Easter) so WordPress is obviously making me pay because …

Prompt – Thwart

Music – Fantastic Negrito – Shuffling on Spotify (seriously, just shuffle, he’s amazing)

Ok, 10 minutes on thwart … here we go …

You thwart me

At every turn, every spin

We practiced this dance

Night on night

But now that we’re here

You look away

Into the eyes of another

Does she feel like me?

You spin me away

Thwarted again.

I can feel the steady heat

Climbing from across the room

Dancers unaware

Of this crumbling routine.

I find the hands of others

But none move just like yours.

Round and round

The circle we go.

Til at last

At each other’s throats we go.

You spin me away

Thwarted again.

I pull strangers close

But their fingers won’t wander

Just like yours.

Slow and steady

Down my back and over my thighs.

I can feel the steady jealousy

Seething from across the room.

Round and round

The circle we go

Til at last …

Bow and begin again.
