Jupiter Descending 

Feel me
Completely fall to pieces

In your embrace

The darkness that loitered

Scatters in the starlight

As my skin wears yours

Like the dense night air

Cloaks the dreams of lovers

And my heart is the sound

Of ten thousand drumbeats 

Before the crowd of eternity

Looking upon us

From a luminous perch

Beyond the lusty shadow

Of my body’s surrender

Andromeda’s Web

I’m not a girl with the sea at my feet in the morning
Having been beyond the horizon in the dogeared pages of the night sky
The vast encyclopedia of the love of lovers
Is trapped inside time’s vacuum of loneliness
The light I know is from distant memories
And it again is consumed by empty promises
Like wishing upon a star that faded long ago
All desire has fallen prey to the science of lies
This hurt masquerades as the truth
My pain is beautiful

Last Prayer 

Crouching beside my bed
in case time will vaporize me before the light of day
I am just me
While here, in this anopheles pose I am alive
Here I am innocent
barren and bereft
of that which I found within the ebb and flow of your tenderness
I need
I hunger
Electricity rushes through my fingertips
delivering precursory messages from the depths of my soul
alerting me that I will have you again
I must
I am not woeful in my yearning
as I disguise myself within these misaligned shadows
that quietly creep across me
and hush behind the umbra
that lies beyond the afterglow
The hollow late night air scorches me with its bold confessions
As I consider my own salvation is lost deep within your arms
a last prayer drifts from my parted lips
For once I was lost, and now I am found.
