Independence Day, Part Two

Steve squeezed her hand. He nearly bowed with a nod, as if encouraging her to tell Josh the truth. To face the things about herself that weren’t normal, or even normally abnormal. Things she’d never admit to the people closest to her. Never tell Pierce. They’re leaving anyway . Daphne tucked the loose strands of hair behind her ear, her gaze tracing Josh’s young, innocent face. The...Read On

The Sound Of Dirty Laundry

It may be old, but it's serviceable

Ka-dung! Ka-dung! Ka-dung! "Mm-huh?" Caitlyn groaned as the rude racket wrenched her from her sleep. Lying on her belly, the side of her face mashed up against her pillow, she blinked her bleary eyes. She saw nothing. She dragged her fingers, pulling aside her hair draped across her face then blinked again. No good; pitch dark. To her dismay she confirmed what her internal clock was...Read On

Zone d'ombre

You felt it  So did I We both know what it was A sound that isn’t heard  Signals the end of love A mating call reversed Coupling undone A sound that isn’t heard That says we’re not in love A note that speaks of emptiness Like an abandoned home Not of an open spaciousness But something there, then gone With each two, it is different Never twice the same But clearly recognizable When...Read On

Her Inner Slut

Be careful what you wish for. You may just get it.

He watched her lie there in post-coital bliss, taking in the glow of her skin as it radiated off her body with the early morning rays that were sneaking through the blinds of their master bedroom. Her breathing was beginning to slow down, her trembling limbs not shaking as much, as she slowly descended from the high of the incredible orgasm her loving husband had supplied her with just...Read On

Dreams Take Me Away

The wind whistles Against the window  Of my soul  Closing my eyes  Dreams take me away  Where beaches rest A light breeze stirring  Its warmth so gentle  The moonlight winks  On the crest of a wave  Waves kissing the shore  With soft slow kisses The pulse of my dream  Like wings  Beneath my heart  Carrying me away  Through time and eternity  Clouds dancing  Swirling around  The midnight...Read On

Pretty Feet

Rita's pedicure leads to a most unique offer.

I stood in front of the salon with the Groupon printout in my hand. I held it like an award I had won and was proud to have. It was a pick-me-up gift from my mother for when I got my next interview or two. That was why I was here, to get my nails done for an interview I had the next day. I wanted to get my hair done, but – well, my budget wasn’t going to handle that, no matter what. As it...Read On

The Legend of The Lust And The Undead

It was in the year of our lord, seventeen-twenty when the Lust sailed from her hideout, El Saqueo la Caleta. The day was sunny with fair winds. She was a one hundred fifty ton, eighty foot vessel that carried one hundred pirates. There were over twenty cannons and a very large cargo space. She had two masts and her main sail could be fitted with either square sails that were best...Read On

Moanin'

It's a story about jazz, wild beasts, a dark witch and a girl moanin'

The night has come to a quiet end. The hostess tastefully turned off the bright chandelier hanging from the ceiling. Only the city of Lights bathes the room now, brushing the thick Persian carpets in soft forgiving shadows. The little silver box in your jacket pocket feels heavy. Thoughtless, you grab a blonde, keep it hanging on your lips. In the dark, the tiny spark of the match is a...Read On

In Winter Seek Your Passion

Considered one of the most difficult forms of poetry, the villanelle is a challenge.

In Winter seek your passion long since passed,  And know that what you sow you often reap. Your life dreams may yet come to you at last. Though ancient hills cache secrets cruelly vast, Inside their rock strewn oaken hollows deep, In Winter seek your passion long since passed. Don't worry that her leaving seemed forecast, Just know as Winter drowsing brings on sleep, Your life dreams may...Read On

Meeting Michael's Wife

A FANTASY for Two Friends.

The first thing I do upon meeting Jennifer is to shake her hand, which causes both Mike and his wife to laugh aloud! "Have some wine," smiles Mike and I sit in the armchair as my friends recline on the sofa. "Relax, Steve..." I do relax, but as we three talk, I'm slightly distracted by how Mike is fondling his wife's knee under her cotton summer dress. Yellow, red-roses print. Pretty....Read On

Lust and Love on The Island of Rhodes

A surprise meeting in a hilltop cafe brings lust and love to a sailor and whore.

Three months after leaving New York as a galley boy on a Norwegian freighter and stopping at many ports in Egypt, Yemen, Iraq, and Iran, peeling sixty pounds of potatoes every morning washing pots and pans, scrubbing the galley floor three times a day, and enduring the intense heat of the Persian Gulf, we were back in the Mediterranean again, heading west toward Spain. Late, one morning,...Read On

Galaxy

You have always been a galaxy to me, seen as a beautiful mystery from afar, named and catalogued by guesswork but never truly explored before. And when pulled into this orbit, there can't really be any return, any mortal that has traveled past our vast atmosphere to pierce through the heavens would tell you the same thing. That seeing a world turn on its axis and grazing the fires...Read On

Naughty Little Tryst

Their Little Tryst Turns Into More

Though they had banned smoking five years ago, the darkened bar reeks of stale cigarette smoke, cheap whiskey and body odor. It's not your upscale kinda bar. No one comes in with expensive suits, fat wallets or knowing how to carry on an intelligent conversation. However, it keeps a steady rhythm of the regulars who come in nightly, from time to time even bringing in new customers. When...Read On

Night Trawling: The Trucker

Something simple, nasty and gay.

It was one of those suffocating August nights. The air was heavy and seemed to suck the energy right out of me. It was the end of an uncomfortable and painfully dull day and my mind wondered aimlessly as the evening hours ticked by. As midnight approached, I began to feel a heat that had nothing at all to do with the sweltering humidity outside. I was single at the time, so dealing with...Read On

The Seduction Of A Student

There are things that we cannot control, feelings we can't hide. Expect a sequel.

She watched her professor speak during the period. Things that were better left unsaid were beginning to crowd her mind. It was as if she couldn’t help herself. Every time she sat in her chair for class, her eyes focused straight on him, and didn’t leave him until the hour ended. He was a man of strength and intelligence. His shrewd blue eyes didn’t miss anything, and she was almost...Read On

Lara's Larceny

A worried husband calls his wife, late at night, and things take a surprising turn.

The fetid odour of uneaten pizza lingers in the stale, silent air as the sun slinks slowly over the skyline. The room turns dark for all except the defiant, flicking television in the corner. I swipe a fingertip across my phone, bathing my desk in pale light. ‘No messages. 9 o’clock. ’ My fingers drum irritably on the armrest. It’s maddening, yet I can’t stop the relentless torture...Read On

Forbidden Desires Ch.02

Alejo brings Bells deeper into his world.

She had been nervous about seeing him on Monday. She did not know how he would act around her after what they had done over the weekend and her heart had fluttered in her chest as she entered his classroom. He taught A-level English Literature and she saw him nearly every day. He didn't look up as she entered and during the class he paid no extra attention to her than to any of his...Read On

151 Reasons

My name is Ryan Noble and I have a gift money can't buy: I understand women.

There's a common misconception that the female of our species is illogical. Taken at the macro, day-to-day level that may appear the case, but over time they are actually the most logical creatures on Earth. With logic comes predictability. And if the output is predictable, the input can be manipulated to deliver any response desired. And do I have desires. Take the barista over there...Read On

A girls night out

We all need a good night out...

Giggling in the bathroom queue, Knowing what we’re going to do. Her short pink dress, heels to match My tongue aches for her wet snatch Bodies filled with rose wine Grabbing her arse, I know she’s mine Once inside, we lock the door, Time to make this bitch my whore. Watching her, I start to pee, Leaning back so she can see, The golden stream of warm piss, Tongues meet for a...Read On

Early Morning Love

Between darkness and light, you enter me.

I don't know when the days Became so long, And yet not long enough. When evening comes Darkness falls. Now, I face you And you face me, Still with a desire so strong That the air hums between us. It used to scream. But now it only whispers, With the accumulation Of responsibilities. We share this bed. Still, While deep in my dreams, My body is aware of you. By instinct it searches you out,...Read On

Inside My Head

...under my skin, embedded in my soul

You’ve got inside my head; Your hold so tight I can’t escape. You pounced: Grasping me With deadly talons That pierced my heart. Your claws injected promises, Feverish words of love that Ravished both body and mind, Leaving me desperate For more. You’re an addiction, A dangerous need. Increasingly frantic, I pen my replies, Fingers flying With a will of their own. I...Read On

Marked Again

A companion piece to my first poem published on Lush.

I wonder if you still feel me inside, if the winter traced along and marked your being as it did mine because certain threads still remain That convinced me our limbs could curl and spiral together, your frame indistinguishable from my own, never to part or know the cold in our bones or be in another's shadow ever again. And anything that was ever held close, every beam of light...Read On

Between the Stacks

Rebecca finds her work at the library to be very satisfying.

Rebecca glanced up at the clock that hung above the heavy double doors of the Fairview Public Library. 7:43. Seventeen minutes to go, she thought, peering around, looking for any stragglers. Even though Thursday was the library's late night, there were always one or two patrons who had to be practically pushed out the door at 8:00. Surprisingly, she didn't see anyone, so she busied...Read On

I Shouldn't Feel This Way- Chapter 1

What happens when the lines between right and wrong are blurred?

Prologue  April 7, 2011 2:00 a.m. I am a runaway, lost at sea. I am a broken bird, yearning to fly free. I am a sinner, unworthy and unholy. I am a rose, wilting slowly. I am a raindrop, touching your cheek. I am a child who plays hide and seek. I am nothing, and yet I am everything. I am contradiction and complexities. ...Read On

Putting the drunken pieces together reveals lust

Ryan fluttered his eyes open but couldn't see, momentarily panicking the drink had finally sent him blind. He squeezed them shut, drew thumb and forefinger across his aching lids and off the bridge of his nose, clumps of sleep rolling with them. Counting to three, he tried again, relieved this time that his focus began to swim into view. Gooey shapes gradually gave way to harder lines and...Read On

Maggie’s eyes popped open at 5:03am, according to the clock on the night stand next to the bed. At first she was disoriented by her surroundings. This was not her bedroom. Even though it was dark, she knew it was not the Fresh Air blue wall color she loved so much. She turned to wake Max and saw a black man in the bed. It all came flooding back. Her car; her rescue; her impulsive slutty...Read On

Every little precise flick stills me, paralyzed from the soft feather touch of your hot hungry tongue.
