There she was
Propped up against the tree
Abandoned and forgotten
Her clothes were tattered
And her face was dirty
But I'll take home this
Lost doll
And make her shine

Be Still

Splayed like a bear skin rug
I'll make every inch of you sing
Leather kisses
And velvet caresses
And if you move
It stops

I keep a picture 
Close to me
One single image 
That makes me smile
That causes my heart
To break like waves over rocks
A smile that looks back at me
And makes me weep
One picture that has spawned
A hundred fantasies
And a thousand more images
Burned into my soul

Sulfur and salt
Torn and bruised
An afterthought 
Immersed in fire
Nothing left behind but
Strangled dreams

Desperate times
Call for equal measures
Send the ravens
Send them all
Send the news far and wide
Find her for me
Bring her soul back to mine 
Let none rest until 
Our hearts are rejoined

Hours spent writing 
Hand written letters
Just to be tossed in the fire
Words converted to 
Ones and Zeros 
And deleted with a single click
The staggering amount of time
Spent face to face with pleasant smiles
Hiding our thoughts
When someone may feel
The same
And none of us will ever know

Love's Autopsy

Beyond naked
Skin peeled back
Insides exposed 
On this cold steel table
He's looking for a heart
I gave away years ago
The tattoo on my wrist
The only clue
To where it now lives

The Vambrace

I know it's there
Without seeing it
The scent of old leather and oil 
Makes my heart race 
I'm prepared for a storm
And for you to unleash hell

Come and curl yourself
At my feet 
Keep me content and 
Entwine our desires
