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.

Ode to Writing

Hello Old Love.
   It’s been a while since our last meeting.

I remember
Your Words gliding off my fingers
   as I leisurely moved them through the Air,
infused with your unmistakable prEsence.

   Sweat
Dust
   Sundown

Our first encounters
some lazy afternoons in my youth.

You captivated me
With your Beauty
     Boldness
Unpredictability
     and Candor…
My Desire for you has not waned.

Perhaps
   Now
The Wanting comes from Deeper Within
   a fixation to be encapsulated by your breath…
Spoken Word.

But for my eyes to behold every part of you has always been my weakness.
To feel my hands skim your body is my preferred obsession,
   a compulsion to be embraced by your Warmth.

And so…
   Here We Are Again,
Together in the Red Room
   Dancing to each other’s breath.

Hello Old Love,
It’s beautiful To Be With You again.

From the Depths of Me

chamela blues

I’m ready to reveal myself to you
what I Want,
what I Need,
I’ll show you my Longing for Something Deeper,
still.

I’m ready to tell you what my Dreams look like,
so much so,
you’ll know
how it feels to be Inside of me.
I will Fill You In.

You’ll know the color of my wanting,
the burning of my Desire.
See the smoke rising from the consummation of my love,
an Offering on this altar of ours.

Pray with me,
and sing
to the tune of our Hearts Beating as One,
Bodies Breathing as One.

Walk in to my Fantasies,
make them come alive.
From the depths of our Prayers
we will reach the high Heavens…
One Breath,
at a time.

Birthday Suit

Like a seed
Softening its outer shell
I’m getting ready to penetrate the ground.

Lead me back to my Roots
Reveal secrets only this Body knows,
this Blood.

Its getting warm in Here
I want to take it all off,
all the Layers of Me
Masks
Capes
Hats
Armor
Be left with the Lightness of my Being.

Would you hold Me?
Should I shudder with the icy stares of All The Different Parts of Me?
Wrap your Warmth around my Body, please
before a chilly air freezes my naked Heart.

Let me just stretch out for a Moment,
Try this Light on for size, see how It fits.

Thank You for Holding Space…

…for a New Dance to Come Alive.
