Spring Bath i made her bathe today, this dirty girl covered in grime of yesterday, marring ivory skin. this winter found her cold, snowbound hibernation seeping into her veins, as she longed for spring. steamy water soaked her front to back, up and down, soft cloth scrubbed dirt smudges until she g...

B-O-R-E-D Bored with myself, by myself, only whispers of you remain, random thoughts flow like water every day blends into the next, endless, denied the connection of your eyes only a brief moment shared, before melting into the crowd. :D okay so it totally blows but the whip was cracking!!! :cry:

magic lost christmases past, the echoes of them tear at my heart, unleashing loss. i remember chocolate kisses doled out in mistletoe greeting, and nuts, some uncrackable, filled the wooden bowl next to our tree. ceramic angels resided in the entry, he spun on his feet coming around to meet her lip...

"Seduction"

no longer does she rely
upon reality for simplicity of love,
finding it blemished and caustic,
she dreams now, in technicolor
of passion long since ebbed,
of gentle candlelight and
dulcet melodies,
seductively entwining
and caressing skin
like silken rain.

personally i have a really hard time with rhyming poetry... sometimes this piece sounds forced and i guess if i were to critique this that would be my thought. because there are so few words that rhyme that work in a unique piece of poetry, i shy away from it myself. have you ever tried not making i...
