    Smoke And Ash

    I've imagined you standing before me looking into my eyes as deeply as I look into yours. And with one kiss I am entirely yours... Your hands all over my body discovering the undiscovered. My heart racing My breath trying to catch up. I am overcome by wild and heavy...

    Remains

    The Painting

    There was a woman more loved by one man than by all men on earth. He sang to her many love songs, He wrote her of his love in the most beautiful poetry that was a pleasure just to speak aloud. Even the worlds greatest poets envied his works. When spoke the words formed...
