Aurora Borealis

O lady of the silver wheel, Mother in the full moon’s light As we dance and begin to feel Let us see love’s blessings tonight. Arianrhod weave magic’s spell, Where souls depart to restful flight, And as you guard their future well Let us see love’s blessings tonight. The strength of feminine divine, The clearest … Continue reading Aurora Borealis

Within Darkness

Behind the velvet mask her eyes saw nothing but darkness. The air of silence allowing her to absorb the energy of his mind at play with her senses.

The prince leans to the girl in scarlet heels, Her green eyes slant, hair flaring in a fan Of silver as the rondo slows; now reels Begin on tilted violins to span The whole revolving tall glass palace hall Where guests slide gliding into light like wine; Rose candles flicker on the lilac wall Reflecting … Continue reading Cinderella

A Pagan Echo

Through fields of wheat there trails a summer breeze That softly sings over the hills and vales And as the sun begins to fall below The Earth’s own rhythm brings a sense of ease As ancient Celts again retell their tales Around the fire, hear a Pagan echo. At Lughnasadh we see the golden grain, … Continue reading A Pagan Echo

Civet Cat

If I ask you would you give me some time A brief moment shared in rhythm and rhyme I will not ask for any more than that Just the merest glimpse of sweet paradise Inhaling your sweet scent of civet cat Aroma feeding my inner desire Just a moment of lust shared between us Ignites … Continue reading Civet Cat

A Lover’s Request

There is no greater beauty I can see, Than one that sets the heart so gently free, The one great truth found in our destiny, The softest touch that burns with wondrous glee.

Love Unspoken

I once had a heart; now it’s broken She was once the love of my life From a distance, the best man’s wife I made my vows solemn spoken I still saw her just now and then I watched her smile without a care Hatches, matches, dispatches share Family ties gather again Until today, her … Continue reading Love Unspoken

While I was wandering through loneliness Where once my trust had met with phoniness I heard you whisper as day turned to night Your gentle calling my heart’s guiding light As inside the darkness you took my hand The delicate love I needed so much Unleashing my tears with the softest touch And slowly my … Continue reading Night Muse

While You Sleep

My reddened eyes aching from lack of sleeping And staring in darkness around our bed While your breathing still echoes in my head The only comfort then to my silent weeping Is it a dream that in the night comes creeping To weave its will like a lost silken thread Replacing our love with this … Continue reading While You Sleep

Decadent Desire

Take my hand and I will lead you to a darker path hold on tight, my love as we dance where desire shatters into hedonistic lust the passion held in a candle’s flame waxy kisses on your skin biting as it cools and your groans inviting the crack of the whip marking your skin with … Continue reading Decadent Desire


I. Good-night? ah! no; the hour is ill Which severs those it should unite; Let us remain together still, Then it will be good night. II. How can I call the lone night good, Though thy sweet wishes wing its flight? Be it not said, thought, understood-- Then it will be--good night. III. To hearts … Continue reading Good-Night

Her Voice

The wild bee reels from bough to bough With his furry coat and his gauzy wing, Now in a lily-cup, and now Setting a jacinth bell a-swing, In his wandering; Sit closer love: it was here I trow I made that vow, Swore that two lives should be like one As long as the sea-gull … Continue reading Her Voice

On the Night Wind

1am. The world is silent my thoughts entombed in silence expressed on the screen in never ending lines of desire. Fingers dancing on keys to the music of imaginations and visualisations that play out in my mind where you are beside me and I can feel your lips caressing my skin. The muse she is … Continue reading On the Night Wind
