Time Eternal

Liquid lines 

moving through time eternal

strands weaving and warping

telling the same old tales.

Woe shall befall the King

proclaims the blinded seer.

Blood shall spatter the Good Queen’s name

shouts the sinister beggar.

Behold the chains binding the waif

bending her to knee and back,

leaving a hole in the fabric of being

as her lover clamors for return,

speaketh the Oracle.

Each saga the same. 

Each time a repeat of another

as each soul is reborn 

prey to the Fates,

who play them like pawns upon the chessboard.

Heartbeat Moment

What random note played with another

makes a song so sweet,

gentle cooing

on the back of my neck.

Fingers knotted together

as bodies fuse into one,

pulse,sense,arousal

mated.

Beneath your hands, languid

lax, 

taken with no control;

my whimpers and moans

filling the air.

Star bursts flashing over musky flesh

bodies melding, twisting 

lips possessing,owning, claiming

skin aflame with desire.

Time stands still for a heartbeat moment 

made eternal by memory.
