Chromium Blues Poems
LADY OF GRACE
radiant lady of mystery, all is as it should be - I am your enigma, as you are mine; lucky be divinity's angels to embrace you as their own.
Love Lingers (Where It Will)
simplistic to the point of incomprehensible, love lingers on the lips and in the heart - seemingly for but the briefest of moments, while ever cavorting on the brink of eternity.
Upon Contemplation Of Past Indiscretions
subsequent to reflection and after considerable self-recrimination i have graciously forgiven myself any past transgressions - the voluntarily imposed veil of deceit
Sensual As Sin
scarlet rose sultry blues note in the symphony of seduction; sensual as sin her rise to rapture leaves me breathless and wild.
CARNAL OPUS: The Author Of My Happy Endi...
wild and careless, like the opening chords of spring, her sultry innocence lures and seduces.
My Soul's Demise
i - guilt one more tortured soul midst the multitudinous hordes of unfortunate miscreants, mine is a gift of the very real,
When Pretense Is No More
When naught remains, Save the hollow ring of empty promises; When pretense is no more, What then this fragile innocence?
'have we met before? ' i said. 'of all the strangers i have chanced upon, you are by far the most familiar.'
Soul Of Valor
in the pale shadow of death's grim reaping, when tomorrows fade into yesteryear and memories have lost their meaning, who then to mourn the poet's solitary tear?
the days of fragile laughter and carefully cultivated elegance are upon us; step lightly lest the luster pale revealing the languid exuberance of our decline;
her every movement the very definition of inspired poetry, the elevated essence of quiet beauty and emotional eloquence; a composition of rhythm and grace beyond measured reckoning, danced in perfect cadence to the melodic rhapsody of noble expression -
Forever Solemn Breaks The Day
foul this capricious farce, masquerading as fate; cruel spectre that would lead to darkest melancholy; each surging memory the echoing chorus of a bittersweet sorrow - slowly fading vestige of a dying heart;
Time And Darkness Favor No Man
long now have i journeyed paths many a wanderer before hath trod with naught else to serve as guide save the light of reason and its unreasoning master...
The Naked Fires Of Resurrection
a burning promise of seduction and the odyssey begins; the tempting taste to intrigue bedded deep in the soft scent of musk and skin.

LADY OF GRACE
radiant lady of mystery, all is as it should be -
I am your enigma, as you are mine;
lucky be divinity's angels to embrace you as their own.
with every scintillating touch and every sultry glance,
you are the lightening strike that transcends the boundaries of heaven and earth,
leaving me ravenous and wanting more...
let me - I'll be the air that you breath;
have me - I'll be the need that satisfies;
and you (my so-much-more) ,
shall be the very soul of me, the heart and raison d'etre of me...
let my arms be your safe haven,
my lips ...
