Not all lives matter to me

ALL lives matter

It is not a cliché. Or a slogan. Or a wish. It is a truth.

Whatever sex, shade of skin, home country or country of origin, sexual orientation, religion, age, background, wealth or poverty, tribe, social standing, class or caste.

ALL lives matter.

Not only do all lives matter. But they all matter EQUALLY.

Nobody but nobody, is better or more important than anyone else.

But whoever you are, wherever you are in the world, if other innocent lives matter so little to you that you are prepared to kill, maim, rape, bully, terrorise, harass, subjugate or damage other lives …

Then your life does not matter to me

Not one little bit.

Getting ready

Art by Laszlo Gulyas


Getting ready


I adore the thought

of you

getting ready

hot water running

in rapid rivers

your skin slick

with scented soap

blushing with heat

and anticipation.


I adore the thought

of you

getting ready

lazily lingering

in lacy lingerie

sexily slipping

into silky stockings

sleek and sensual

in a sheath of a dress.


I adore the thought

of you

getting ready

pristine, painted

poised and peerless

and perfectly prepared

for me.

This is another ‘not new’ post. It is originally from two years ago. There is something deeply arousing about a lover, whether physical or distant, getting ready. It is humbling, and yet fills me with pride.

To further upset Dr. Who fans ….

Doctor Who fans seem divided over the regeneration of the Doctor into a woman.

Readers will know that I am not a regular viewer of television, but there are some exceptions. I have been a serious, lifelong fan of Dr. Who. I have watched it avidly for as long as I can remember and seen it wax and wane, and wax again.

I am delighted by the thirteenth Doctor. Since it’s rebirth in 2005 the show has been brave, clever, witty, moving and has broken ground in many ways. I believe Jodie Whittaker to be an inspired choice.I look forward to the new series.

Because her casting seems to have upset as many as it has pleased, I thought I would be mischievous and upset even more fans by giving my own very brief personal view of all the Doctors to date – and a score out of 10. It has to be said that recent Doctors have been better served by writers, budgets and the overall vision – and ironically time has not been kind to those in the middle years particularly.

One – William Hartnell – The original. Grumpy,  Irascible. Commanding. Set the bar.  6/10

Two – Patrick Troughton –  Intelligent, delightfully eccentric, unpredictable, underrated. 6/10

Three – Jon Pertwee –  Establishment, predictable, overrated. 3/10

Four – Tom Baker – Set a new bar. Exciting, narcissistic, bold, unconventional. 7/10

Five – Peter Davison – Nice but dull 5/10

Six – Colin Baker – Enthusiastic but unconvincing 4/10

Seven – Sylvester McCoy – Awful. The nadir of Dr. Who. 0/10

Eight – Paul McGann – Promising but short-lived 5/10

Nine – Christopher Eccleston – A new era. Focussed, intense, intelligent, believable 7/10

Ten – David Tennant – Mercurial, inventive, convincing, emotional, a superb Doctor 8/10

Eleven – Matt Smith – Off beat, sympathetic, likeable, unexpected 6/10

Twelve – Peter Capaldi – Deep, intense, powerful, dark, fallible, resourceful, challenging. My favourite 9/10

I said you wouldn’t like it.

Walks this earth


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.

This is by no means new. I wrote it at least three years old. It has been plagiarised a number of times, which I am told is a compliment.  I like it very much. And one thing I do know for certain – there is a woman who walks the earth….

Some days I am raw

I prowl and pace these rooms like a caged animal. My skin itches, my sinews are tight, my muscles cramp.  There is an ache deep in my bones.

My eyes burn with images of you dancing.

My long fingers yearn for your flesh.

I cannot focus on work, on words, on writing. I cannot apply myself to whatever it is I am supposed to be doing.

I am hard at the slightest thought of you

My mind is a tangle of ropes and restraints, cuffs and chains. My imagination is busy peeling off your clothes, kissing your throat, your breasts, your belly, your thighs.

My mouth on your sex. Your taste on my tongue.

I yearn for your body, your beauty, your pure and perfect form.

I long for you spread like sacrifice across a brass bed on white sheets.

I want your climax over and over

for my pleasure.

Some days I am so fucking raw.

I wrote this two years ago. Some days – and nights – it has much resonance.

Forest fire

Art by Damian Klaczkiewicz



she feels parched




with desire

with longing

with lust.


She is so

tinder dry

that just

a single spark

will have her burning


and out of control

like a forest fire.

Inch by inch



I am the cartographer

of your sacred body.

I will discover you

and map you,

explore you

and draw you,

observe you

and describe you,

chart you

and render you

inch by perfect inch.
