I gently glide between
your lips and your eyes
A warm desire floods my heart

feelings take over
Worlds can’t keep us apart.
A salute to these
casual symphonies that make art.




Standing on the banks,

Blatantly left ashore

Trying to fill in the blanks

Wondering about our home,

Nursing a bottomless hole

Longing for you more and more.

Stepping into my heart
Softly scaling the boundaries
Finding our way together.

Drowning in your shadow
Bereft of all emotion
You asked, and I simply let go
Taking over the reigns of my life
A witness to my crimson glow.

Wise Words Wednesday 14.2.18

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices – today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

-Kevyn Aucoin

Wishing you all a day of love and sunshine. Have a great day 🙂


Brown Love!


Honey how I wish

I felt for you

Like I feel for chocolate!

What I feel about chocolate is ineffable- I can never quite express in words. February being the month of love, I’ll follow a pattern of appreciation of all the things we love and adore. This is a funny, satirical one, I would think!

Red & Black Dream

Under the dusk of your kohl-veiled eyes
And the doting of bright-red lips,

Imagining the infinite possibilities
My heart soars..skips a beat.

Warm, tender manoeuvers
Inviting me close to belief,

A red and black nightmare
Unfurling like a dream.

This was first posted on this blog in February 2016. I’ve come a long way since then but its sophistication and the thought still engulf me completely. I was moved when I had finally finished this piece. And isn’t that what writing is? Finding the words to express the ineffable 😀 I do hope you guys love this as much as I gush about it!
