Kiss Me Again

My mind has slowed down for the millionth time today The clock ticks slowly. As though it’s not moving at all It’s 8:17 am She pulls my chin towards her and we’re already very much there I dig my fingers inside her hair, long and flowy Rough at the ends dusted with the powder of a newly purchased swim cap All the moaning drowns out these voices in my head

On The Count Of Three

One the count of three, I will ask for your hand for a walk, "You will call me by your name and as I will call you by mine", We will walk by the beach to the sunrise, Sharing a kiss and a moment so divine.

Freedoms Right

I hope this life brings me this treasure, So the triumph of my struggle will be a measure, To reunite my body and soul, And I will once again become whole.
