    Love Letters To A Huntress

    Careful white sheets Pitbull silhouettes, a couple colorful pills. Their military mentalities statuesque under the cross, Leave me alone, concrete faces. I crawl out from under the thorny brambles of marriage and childbirth, a young woman's nightmare and obligation. I want a...

    The Lady She, My Guest

    SHE is a balm for aching breast, Ready-eyed and deadly-dressed, With lust for silent night obsessed. SHE is of hunters known as best, With war-paint worn upon Her chest; Weary SHE, my honored guest. SHE knows I crave what SHE suggests, And make true whatever SHE requests...

    and write poetry? I'd enjoy to read some. What's your opinion on this one that I wrote? I am, where under the moon on high tide, And the ocean, is yet so still, as I sleep. I dream, of castles of sand, as my slumber deepens, And i wonder, of beauty in hidden places, where the...

    I think in the end, we are all selfish.

    When everything else is going bad in life I

    always turn to poetry or even books. It's nice to get lost in a fantasy world once in a while because then just for a short amount of time, everything seems okay. I mean yeah that feeling won't last, but it's nice to have an escape once in a while.

    with long ago.... Men themselves have wondered What they see in me. They try so much But they can’t touch My inner mystery. When I try to show them, They say they still can’t see. I say, It’s in the arch of my back, The sun of my smile, The ride of my breasts...
