With a Kiss I Die

That first sweet kiss that led me far away To quickened senses and long sultry nights With heated wantings for promised delights As with the wind I watched my caution play. Her sparkling eyes could melt a heart of ice They caressed the soul with hidden desire Igniting sparks of a forgotten fire Defying words … Continue reading With a Kiss I Die

In His Mind

He’s hiding in the dark shadow Alone where none dare look or see The fear that holds his soul below His eyes can’t see how it should be The only voice, the voice of hate A loathing that lives in his mind While piety leads him to fate His own heart he can never find … Continue reading In His Mind

I have ne’er changed a man into a beast But mirror images of his own self Then that is what the world should see.
