    Dreams of a golden morning dawn,

    of paths that take us far beyond... Beyond the worry, sorrows and woe, where sparkling rivers swiftly flow. Places where the sky is blue, where everything is clean and new. Dreams of a place in which to live, not only taking, but to which we give... give of ourselves back to the...

    A moment of pure bliss After the passion

    builds As right and wrong fade away Breaths taken and stolen The pleasure takes control Leaving senses on fire Not a thought or care Only the ecstasy of being Driving each to release The need for satisfaction And lost along the way To a moment of pure bliss

    Stalking

    It never rightfully belonged to me But I wanted it nonetheless, So when you were distracted and couldn’t see I took it, I confess. I thought that it might take a while For you to realize your mistake, And though I felt guilty in my guile I held it close, for love’s sake...

    Deeper Stranger.

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    insight One need not seek it, for it is inevitable Perhaps never constant, yet always an unyielding teacher It penetrates the entire being, demands much from the soul, taxes the intellect, launches the heart on a seesaw journey
