Smoke & mirrors

These bold lines Once blurred Turned us into acquaintances You left no fragrance behind No pictures on the walls Painted pretty canvases That never saw the light of day Still you had a lot to say Pulled on our connections Looking for a reaction Pulled on our connections Expecting me to let go Damaging the…

Frequency

I laid there bare In this moment of truth As you drank From my fountain of youth Manipulate my senses Caress away the tension All that I embody Lies here next to you Fluent in the sheets Foreign language Only your body speaks Lyrics to my soul Intertwined in harmony I’ll sing all night Swing…

Farewell

There I was Night sky above me Longing to see your face Excited to touch your skin Too nervous to speak To blind to heal The thought of this Played back to back scenes A movie in my head The horror left me Chased away the devil in you Still this voice Inside of my…

You hold me near and dear All my fears disappear Sweet visions realized I gaze at you in amazement To be in this time and space Alignment at its best Aura to aura We meshed so well You say you watch me in my sleep A manifestation of my dreams A king fit for this…
