Realization

Art by Michael Liepke

Suddenly

she realises

her pulse racing

her heart pounding

her mouth dry

her thoughts tumbling

over themselves

dangerously

that she

is the one he wants

that she

is his fantasy.

Without touching

 

He touches her

without touching her.

 

He holds her

without holding her.

 

He knows her

without knowing her.

 

He calls her

and her soul answers.

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, geographic location or country of origin, sexual orientation, religion, age, background, wealth or poverty, tribe, social standing, political position, fame, 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, suppress, disenfranchise, subjugate, or damage other lives …

Then your life does not matter to me

Not one little bit.

I wrote and posted this two years ago, and repeated it last year. Nothing much has changed. In fact, in all of the most powerful nations, and in many others, to a greater or lesser extent, human life has been devalued further in the last two years.

Photograph taken from the web. I was going to use photos of religious extremists (of any religion) or American white supremacists or similar from elsewhere, but I could not bear to look at their foul hate-filled faces.

I may have to stop writing

 

I may

have to stop writing.

I have no adequate

adjectives,

no strong enough

similes,

no meaningful

metaphors,

no sufficient

superlatives,

no good enough

phrases

with which to praise you.

You are beyond

my words.

In dreams

 

I will not be held

responsible

or accountable

or answerable

or culpable.

Nor will I

apologize

or feel guilty

or accept liability

or be judged

or even damned

for all the

dark

delicious

decadent

dirty things

I do to you

in my dreams.

Filling my summer

Art by Marcos Beccari

Filling my summer

 

The days have lengthened out,

strung from the first stirrings

of tireless birds woken by dawn

to the dark shapes of bats,

soundlessly haunting the dusk.

 

My body has stretched out,

relaxed by the light filled hours,

touched warm by the sun’s rays

and moving easy to the music

of you

filling my summer.

I wrote this about four years ago. It is summer here (though admittedly an unreliable English one) so the poem has emerged once more.

Mirror

Art by Francine van Hove

She cannot see herself

as I see her.

Her mirror image rebels.

It dismisses her beauty,

refuses her desirability,

overrules her sensuality,

is cruel to her curves.

She finds herself wanting.

Whereas I

can only stare

and sigh

in awe.

I first posted this three years ago. Perhaps it is worth sharing again.
