wilder sunsets…

i think you have to chase it. that thing that tells you... keep. going. that there are wilder sunsets

i think
you have to chase it.
that thing that tells you…
keep. going.
that there are wilder sunsets
and more colors to know.
that there are still answers for
what’s pulling at you.
that the emptiness and heartbreak
aren’t where love will leave you
because somewhere there is a lover
who will kiss you like you have
poetry and addiction on your lips
and needs your touch and taste
like mercy on their soul.
and there are all those virgin,
unfelt things in you, still untouched
and tender and unfolding.
so you have to keep searching.
for all that soul stuff.
until your intangible aches are
in the flesh and that fire in
you is spilling all around you…
i think you have to keep going.

a fire in that kiss…

a fire in that kiss that always came from your own lips

that kiss…
it’s a bitter taste now.
and god, how it felt like love,
and then it turned into
such. brutal. pain.
but you make sure you
keep loving deep.
and keep your heart wilder than wild,
because someday you’ll breathe it
all out as stardust and art…
and there was a fire in that kiss
that always came from
your own lips.

smoke & sugar…

we can kiss slow and wild until we forget time and collapse.

smoke & sugar…

you’ve got
too much gravity
in your head.
so take it easy.
and put the heavy down.
we could be delicate here.
or not…
you could come mix
that smoke on your lips
with the sugar on mine
and we can kiss slow and wild
until we forget time
and collapse.
