… even the wolf

art-by-ryan-pancoast

 

In this season of fairytale and legend he paints himself as almost a hero.

He imagines himself snatching the poisoned apple from the rose-red lips of the raven haired princess with the snow-white skin and replacing it with an urgent kiss from his own hungry mouth.

He dreams of braving the vicious thorns of imprisoning briar to lift the unmoving but gorgeous living body of the sleeping beauty from out of her silent coffin.  To carry her to some safe and secret place and wake her with the heat of his breath upon her barely-pulsing, newly-naked throat.

He sees himself placing the glass shoe on the delicate foot of the young. innocent, badly treated servant girl and claiming her wide-eyed perfection, pulchritude, purity and submission for always.

Yet the girl he really wants – the angel in the red hooded cloak –  knows him as the dangerous creature of which her mother has warned.  He is the restless stranger with poetry in his notebook, desire in his heart, and a world of darkness in his soul.

It is true that his teeth and claws can be sharp and he has such a decadent yet eloquent hunger.

But now, in these fading days and threadbare nights, even the wolf yearns only to be loved.

It has now become a tradition for me to re-post this on Halloween. It does not fit with either the pagan origins or the current commercial frenzy for this ancient festival, but it is probably about as fairytale as I get. Although I do have a fondness for Sleeping Beauty

Blown away

art-by-annick-bouvattier

 

You move through my day

like a sigh

like a breath

like a whisper

like warm air

like a soft breeze

like a wild wind

like a sea storm

like a tempest

like a hurricane

and I am blown away

by all of them.

Seduction

She slips

through my defences

her silent infiltration

is smooth

with soft

sensual

sexy

silky

sleek

submissive

seduction.

Lap

art-by-casey-baugh

 

Some days

she is a cat

mewing

licking

pawing

stretching

scratching

rubbing herself

against my skin

before finding her way

purring

onto my waiting lap

Written a year ago, but it is one of those evenings when one needs someone who purrs.

For the taking

 

art-by-gianni-strino

Capture the moment

hold it close

secure it

nurture it

defend it

protect it.

 

It is yours

for the taking,

the saving,

or the losing.

Born

 

women-paintings-by-paul-kelley-6-1600x1200

 

I was born

to teach you

to direct you

to guide you

 

I was born

to instruct you

to respect you

to undress you

 

I was born

to desire you

to explore you

to adore you.

 

I was born

to own you.

 

And you

were born

to be mine.
