Once, When I Knew

I didn’t have to fight for love,

to lower myself to my knees

to express regret

to instill a sense of longing to be



Once, I could look in eyes,

that would turn to the oceans great poets

speak of when the depths of one’s


become the anchor of our need.


When in a moment, skin to skin,

mind to mind, we might feel each other

soon to the compelling nature of our own


becoming one with hers, his, with ours.


I told myself countless times that a pursuant

mandate on my desire would be my silent demise.

I am a writer. I've always wanted to write intriguing words. Don't we all. Aren't we all wanting to be experts in the language of love, sensuality, desire, provocative notions? Well, I'm giving it a try. Join me if you'd like, and please share any feedback you think would help my adventure :)

Thanks so much for your visit, your feedback is always appreciated, and I will respond if you wish.
