Burning Pages

Look at me, no, really look. What do you see behind the burnt pages of my book? The colour of my skin probably strikes you first depending on the colour, it glares, soothes or freaks Does that entice you to look deeper within? Dare you see further through the cracks of my skin? There’s more […]

Midnight Broke 

Midnight, and the whispers begin whirling stars leading to forgotten terrain  moonlight clouding paths unseen  sailors swept silently under waves therein. Lullabies sung        Sirens caressing souls                             seducing minds…young and old  midnight befell, cruising unsung lands. Midnight broken, eclipsed moon. […]

The Mirrors’ Reign

Where clear water flows, runs the blackest ink, purging angels from demonic wings; reflections mimic a looking well, distorted visions adorns…

Silken Shackles

Lost in the dark, tangled in silken threads a tender voice, yarns a delicate dream; promising rejoicing hearts, promising soul healing deals. Lost in the dark, silken threads tangle, binding blinded beaus silencing their fears, and… in place, rose-tinted glasses adorns, camouflaging ill human gains; lost in the dark, enlightening threads twine, shackles taken willingly, […]

Eternity Shared

This is one of my first collaborations, ever, it was not intended as one; I got roped into taking part in an acrostic challenge, the challenge host wanted a steamy piece and gave us a few words to choose from, so this is what I wrote with my love, J (for anonymities sake, I have […]

X Marks the Spot

X marks the spot. But what spot may that be If its been hidden away for centuries? A treasure spot? Or a Place to find a buried mystery? Are pirates the only ones with the keys? How do they know? Where do they go? Was the mapped parchment the way to find loot buried in […]
