Remembering Past Lives & Loves

wine + beer

I used to drink alone.
Single, with everyone else partnered except me.

Later taken, my boy stayed home while I partied the nights away.
That didn’t work out, of course.

So I traveled across the open sea,
but not before reaching the height of the heavens with fiery flings,
and other such things.

On this land, there were those that danced their way into my heart.
In the desert, on the hillside.

Yet it was the Waters that brought me a great love.
This One’s fear and doubt tore us apart.
So accustomed he had grown to my presence, he came running back into my arms.

Silly me for letting him back in
Again
And again.
No more…no more!

here comes the sun

Nearly a decade now on this side of the Pacific,
who would’ve thought I would be reunited with magic?

And yet, no matter how much of it there is,
stories don’t always have a fairy tale ending.
Heart weary, it is now all a blur.

The only thing that’s clear is the sight of what lies ahead.

I like the smell of beer too,
once my Lover drinks it.
But I like the taste of wine better,
slowly sipped
from your treasured chalice.

My Lover’s breath is bittersweet,
fermented words & barley
His Souls whisperings are hot and holy,
His Expression, my preferred addiction.

But you,
Your cup is overflowing,
Will you not pour me a glass of my own?
Don’t hold on to all the goodness now,
There’s no fun or love in hoarding.

Share.
Share if you care to,
But don’t spill a single drop.
Make haste,
But don’t waste!
And save me a little bit of loving…
Here’s to a beautiful evening.

Cheers!

Naked

Naked

Like the day I was born

yet it is I that cradles you.

Naked

As we lay intertwined

in a long lovers embrace

Oh…

Like a baby, I’m naked.

 

Naked

Standing under hot, flowing water

Little kisses dripping on my skin,

cleansing my body from deep within.

Mmm…

Sweet, sweet steam.

 

Naked

Lying in the dark,

curled up like a seed

Sinking deeper into the Earth in search of you.

 

Come out, come out, wherever you are!

Because you’re Here with me,

but not really…

only the thought of you remains

as I stand Here

looking at myself

Naked.

El Renacimiento / Bilingual #1

–|¨°}+{°¨|–

Una sonrisa como la tuya marca el tiempo en el cielo
A smile like yours marks time in the sky

Esta noche
     Tonight

Tinto como mis labios
Lips tinted like wine

Un Gato Negro se acurruca en mi cuello
     A Black Cat nestles on my neck

el renacimiento

y el calor de tu recuerdo resbala
and the warmth of your memory slides

sobre mi pecho
     on my chest

vientre
          womb

piernas
               thighs

rodillas
                    knees

pies
                         feet

Tierra Humeda
                              Wet Earth

Pienzo en ti y renazco.
I think of you and I am reborn.
