It hurts

Art by Willi Kismer

I want you.

in ways I have written a thousand times

and yet make me hard when I apply them to you.

 

I want you

in countless, endless fantasies,

stacked in towers of gorgeous film reels in the dark corners of my mind.

 

I want you

in visions of breathtaking pleasure and exquisite pain,

stripped and tied and teased and touched and tortured and adored.

 

I want you

so fucking much

it hurts.

Sacrifice

 

Art by Jarmo Korhonen

I will capture this golden sunset

in the prayer-like cup

of my hands

and pour it

on your naked body

like oil

to anoint your skin

and make holy

your sacrifice.

Real

 

 

The Great Poet by Vettriano

I am not a shadow

nor an invention

nor a character created

for a virtual life

to inhabit scenarios

of make-believe

role play

and pretend.

 

I am not a projection

a fantasy

a construction

of someone

I would like to be.

 

I am not just

an avatar

 

I am corporeal

of flesh and blood

a heart that pumps

a mind that thinks.

A hunger

that burns.

 

And if I should play

a game

in any way

in any context

it is always

for real.

I will read

Art by Adam Clague

In the whispering light

of a perfumed candle

I will read you

my poetry

your beauty lit

by my longing

my voice deep

and dark

with desire.

No Stranger to Beauty

Art by Loui Jover

No Stranger to Beauty

.

I am no stranger to beauty

It has thrilled me,

haunted me,

betrayed me,

pursued me,

evaded me.

It has danced wild with me

Through soft, velvet night.

It has lain gentle with me

In the quiet, silver dawn.

.

I am no stranger to beauty.

It has inspired me,

Calmed me,

Enraged me,

Tortured me,

Chained me.

It has walked easy with me

On golden summer days.

It has danced only for me

With urgent promise in its eyes.

.

I am no stranger to beauty.

But yours …

Soft eyed

And naked.

Pale skinned

and perfect.

Has taken my breath away.

This is not new by any means. But it resonates.

In this moment

Art by Joseph Lorusso

 

If you do not live this moment

this ordinary

unique

perfect

imperfect

tragic

comic

dull

extraordinary moment

right now

then when will you live it?
