Shrinking miles

art-by-michael-inessa-garmesh

 

If only

I could take giant strides

across land and sea

mountain and stream

forest and tundra

snow and desert

swallowing distance

shrinking miles

eating geography

I would claim

your beauty

and body

and soul.

I posted this a year ago. I hope no one minds the repetition.

Quietly pretend

Art by Gianni Strino

 

I will quietly pretend

she is mine.

 

Her beauty

her body

her hair,

the sway

of her hips,

the laughter

the fun

the intelligence

in her eyes.

 

I will quietly pretend

she is mine.

 

It will not

bring her closer

but it will

just for a moment

make me believe

in paradise.

You know who you are

Art by Fabian Perez

You know who you are.

Over the years I have been plagued by plagiarists.

People who steal my writing and pretend it is their own.

It is theft, it is illegal, and it is immoral.

And right now, I know that you are regularly coming here and copying. You are posting my words as if you wrote them. You are a liar and a fraud, and utterly without talent of your own.

So here is a warning. I will soon be devoting serious time (and I mean serious time) every week to finding you. I am buying software which will track every stolen piece down. I also have someone who will help me. It does not matter where on the web your site is, we will find you.

And when I do, I will report you to Facebook, or Instagram, or WordPress, whichever host you use. Because you are breaking international copyright law (in all countries), and also the host’s rules. Your site will be closed down.

But before I do that, because when it comes to protecting my work I am a vicious, vindictive, vengeful bastard, I will make sure that you are truly humiliated first. I will ensure that all your followers who have been conned by you into thinking you have half a creative brain will know what a sad little fake you are.

And if your site is successful, or even more, if you have published anywhere on the web, I will take legal action. Believe me I have the money, the balls, the contacts, and the bloody-mindedness to do it. In short, I will make you feel so small that you will crawl away and wish that you had never heard of me.

So, if I were you I would delete what you have already stolen, and stop taking any more. Right now.

This is your only warning.

I WILL be coming to get you

And I will be brutal in completely fucking destroying you.

Crimson Fire

art-by-lidia-wylangowska

Late September afternoon

silver and gold light

a gentle breeze

kissing the trees

picturing you

in a clinging dress

crimson fire

the colour of leaves.

Weakness

 

Art by francine-van-hove

She has a weakness

for strangers and poets

artists and dreamers

masters and dancers

adventurers and saints

and men

who make her feel

dangerous and safe

at the same time.

Walks this earth

Art by William Whitaker

There is a woman.

She walks this earth.

I have not met her, although I once came close. I have barely seen her, though glimpses have thrilled me. I have never spoken to her, although I swear I can hear her sweet accent in my head. And in my dreams.

I do not know her perfume but her scent thrills me. I have not touched her but can almost feel her skin beneath my finger tips. I have not looked into her eyes, but feel light-headed at the thought.

I have not owned her, but the hunger to do so consumes me.

There is a woman.

She walks this earth.

I wrote this three years ago. It has been plagiarised at least four times, once by a woman who reversed the point of view. I suppose I should take it as a compliment (except I hate thieves). I have always liked this post, and hope you will forgive the repost.

Wild skies

stephanie-bracciano

Her heart flutters

against his hand

upon her breast

like a captive bird

aching for release

into his wild skies.
