Volcano of Desire
When we are together
I am gentle as a dove in your hand.
A supernova of leaves blossom above us,
while a magma of love
overflows the moonlit night.
Your Love Sees Through Me
Blue kisses in the night
lift me to new heights of passion
where birds take flight
over a field of black and white checkered dreams
into a constellation of light.
Sleeping Dogs Lie
Memories dog me nightly.
This is the incontrovertible dogma of dreams
keeping me hamstrung and unable to flee
from dogs or dilemmas
that leave me helpless on my pillow.
