King & Queen

You spoke to me today
Looking in my eyes
Playing with my hair
You told me the truth
As I stood here
Vulnerable under your gaze
There is a longing
A need
For you to hold me tight
To hold me near
While I unburden my past
From my lips 
To your ears
Arms around
Whispering 
I have you
As tears threaten to escape
Abuse
Neglect
No one wanted me near
Poison to all who breathed
I stand upon the street corner
Thumbing a ride
I need to run
I need to hide
The pain I bear
The anguish I carry
Overwhelming
Please
Let me hide
You are my King
You hold me tight
Anchor in the night
Chase away the beasts of burden
Carrying nightmares on their back
Baby 
You coo in my ear
My Queen
My Delight
Never more shall pain encompass
Never more shall tears fall
i am you King.
i am your everything
Fight the demons that crave your mind
Crave your pain
I shall gather you in my arms
Forever more
You are safe.

Hold Me

Nights spelled with desire
mornings soaked with passion
I wonder at this connection
I wonder what it is…..
what hold you have on me.
What is it about your lips
your eyes
the tone of your voice?
What is it about you hands
your smiles
the caress of your tongue?
I bleed
laying on the line
fine line
one I swore to never walk again
yet here we are.
Frisson of lust
tongues dance
intricate language of love
pull me down
pull me back
light my fire
once again.
Drive away dark despair
cradle me in your arms
stroke my hair
tell me it will be okay.
Hesitantly
I allow myself to unfurl
to reap the light you shed
seeing finally within
the worth you have already seen.
