haiku for the hump day
you said my soft voice
was healing in some sweet way.
your words are balm too.

slide your fingers
across my skin silk.
that breathy moan
is just for you.

"stop looking for the next secret door that is going to lead you to your real life. stop waiting. this is it. it's here and you'd better decide to enjoy it or you are going to be miserable, wherever you go for the rest of your life, forever." ~ lev grossman, the magicians

she had a certain exhalation of surrender about her, as if she was a door waiting to be pushed open; but it was the darkness beyond that held me. ~ john fowles, the magus

here we are,
refusing to accept
the final pain
that will heal forever.
the scar, proof
we will smile again.

“I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.
I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.
I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,
and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
Like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.”
― Pablo Neruda

she had something that is gone from the world, from the female world. a sweetness without sentimentality, a limpidity without naivety. she was so easy to hurt, to tease. and when she teased, it was like a caress. john fowles, the magus
