On the ground, a note.

Your name – stepped on / dirt-trodden

I wish I’d find you…

Hold you how he wanted to

So much, you’d wouldn’t miss him.

Desert Dreaming

Sitting on a lonely bench, searching for the Sunlight to warm her fragile body,
she saw him.
Dressed in white, in a jovial mood with friends, he skipped his way into town,
and into her Heart.

Their eyes met. They barely spoke.
But when their palms touched…
Fire,
In the Space Between.

Lets walk together, She said.
I shall follow you into the Night, He said.
And thus a pilgrimage into a Desert of Dreams began.

Beneath a blanket of Stars and the gentle embrace of the cold, dark Night,
they Walked.
Side by side, feet stepping onto the sand,
she healed his Heart with the warmth of her hands.

She did not know it then…but it was a Journey that would Heal Her Soul. Lost, many times long ago, searching for love in all the wrong places, this time when she stopped looking and started truly giving,
the kind that lasted Lifetimes would come waltzing in.

Who knew, it would be start of something True…

Midnight in Paris

Finally saw the movie after buying the DVD forever ago.

So funny. So true. So Woody Allen…
The can-can scene made me cry.

The book that Gil Bender (Owen Wilson) wrote may or may not have been a hit, but his book’s character should be able to get this one…

 

One day,

when the rain pours down in Paris

I shall find solace

in a dusty, old nostalgia shop.

I will find you,

again

As I did in the desert

many Lifetimes ago.

Don’t worry…

You’ll know its Me,

as You did

when I first Touched You.

Blessed Union of Souls

You’ll know…

I promise.

My Loving is unmistakable.

You’ll know.

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.

Music melts all the separate parts of our bodies together. — Anais Nin

hold me like you do your guitar

and i will sing to you

until the morning light.

watching you caress her body

makes me green with envy…

how is it that you’ve chosen her

and not me?

 

you strum

i hum

together

let us come

and make beautiful music

tonight.

Goodbye to the Bitter, My Sweet

Bitter
This Medicine is bitter
The smell of incense tricks you into thinking it is sweet
But no,
The smoke of remembering our past is bitter.

What did you think?
That our coming together would be delicious?
One must first mourn
the death of what was
before delighting in the birth of the new.

Better
I’m now better
Infusing this Space
With Silence
My gaze
Lonely memories of you
An exhale…
After holding my breath all throughout your stay.

Goodbye, my sweet.
You’ve healed me.
