The Romantic Heart

“I was made and meant to look for you and wait for you and become yours forever.” ~ Robert Browning

Yearning for my soul’s twin Waiting for like to find like I sit very still Letting incompatible souls Rush past me in haste Patience is not a virtue As it almost drives one crazy I stop my fretting Remembering it will be Worth the wait The feeling of someone Missing in my heart and arms Is like phantom pains Knowing it will pass When the void is filled Seeking the Right One Where...Read On

A Teutonic Temptation

A passionate affair at a romantic spa retreat set amidst a snowy landscape of fairytale castles.

Friday Katie The Lufthansa 737 hurtled down London Gatwick's north easterly runway, its two turbofan engines effortlessly propelling it off the tarmac and into the bright blue winter sky. Once airborne, it slowly banked to the right, pointing its nose out over the North Sea towards the Low Countries and our eventual destination of Munich, which lay just ninety minutes away down the...Read On

Beautiful Grief

For once I’m wishing for snow, That this dull, grey sky Would send down its soft revenge So I could hear these thoughts of you In the kind of peace that sifts over us Like angels shedding their beautiful grief. Yet there are no angels here but us, And the biggest sadnesses of all Are the ones that make our hearts swell Beyond the size of our bodies. We keep...Read On

Redemption

Love redeemed

The heart forlorn, merciless  Tender desires ravaged by time, dispirited  Yet in solitude a glimmer of hope, glinting  Held wretched in a sad melody Time’s passing, meaningless  A dream beheld in despair, sorrowful  Ascending into dejection, melancholy  The future pensively dreadful A spirit disconsolate, regretful  Cherished memories withering, vanishing  Their decaying images...Read On

Falling in Love with Nitasha

A school crush on my best friend

For six months I blamed the army, and this is why. My dad was a major and had taken a position overseas, dragging us with him. A year later he reckoned a British school would provide better qualifications. It was a train of thought that led, on the day of my 16th birthday, to my mother tearfully hugging me goodbye at the gates of a boarding school in the north of England on the first day...Read On

When He Plays Piano in the Dark

When you love an artist, you are taken beyond whatever you were before he claimed you.

When you love an artist, sometimes you feel as if you are loving alone. The love they have for their art wells up inside of them, expands and nothing else can remain. That is what makes them what they are, extraordinary, with gifts that only God can hand out. Then there are times when the love they have for you becomes focused. It is overwhelmingly beautiful and beyond the imagination. When...Read On

Happy New Year, 1976

Jill walked through the front door of the Bluebird Bar covered with snow. She got a mischievous grin on her face when she saw me. She walked up to my station and set her large thermos on the bar between us. She had on a huge over-sized knit hat and mittens that matched her black pea coat. It was obviously starting to come down pretty thick outside. It had only been flurries when I had started...Read On

The kiss

Why so scared? Why so meek? Why so shy? Why so weak?

A small fleeting glance, a tentative peek, A tell-tale glow appeared on her cheek. She endeavoured to act coolly, to be super calm, To wipe off the moisture that had formed on her palm. But her cover was blown; she knew that he’d seen her, Her redness increased; the blushing got deeper. Why so scared? Why so meek? Why so shy? Why so weak? Her hand touched her face; she chewed on her lip,...Read On

06. Mazzy's Perfect Head

“I don’t give head,” Mazzy said, blinking big eyes at me.

The early-dawn city lights blurred past behind her as the taxi took us home. “I know it’s selfish and you can do whatever you like, I love it all, and I’m on the pill, but I won’t suck you. I’m protecting my throat, my voice, is that okay?” This was more than okay, for two reasons: First, Mazzy was astonishingly beautiful; I mean the kind of beauty you rarely meet in the flesh, the kind...Read On

Kiss My Ass (On New Year’s Eve)

When Helen makes a naughty offer, she didn't expect Carrie to take her up on it. Or did she?

The ingredients were all there, I swear - an artfully decorated buffet overflowing with deliciousness, bottles of champagne and beautiful people in their best age and dressed in their finest clothes, hyped up by the promise of a new year with new opportunities after a highly successful one, a brilliant band that played whatever we desired, a clear sky, and all of them hustled together on...Read On

Mark Me On The Inside

There are moments  Like this  When you need more from me.  You don’t just want my kisses,  My roaming hands and tongue,  My sweet words  Whispered in your ear,  Deep moans of satisfaction  When you enter me,  Slow grinds  That intensify  And tender cries  Before you ease out.  Eye to eye,  Cheek to cheek,  As we come effortlessly,  Wrapped in our love,  Secure in its warmth. ...Read On

Sarah

Sarah had been in Paris for some six months when, out of the blue, I received a call from her asking if she could come and stay with me at my apartment in Rome for a week or two. Of course I said yes. I had not seen Sarah since we left college in Chicago three years previously and went our separate ways. She, with the ultimate aim of becoming a writer, went to work for a small publishing...Read On

Sweet Surrender

Blind obedience to a stranger...

The room was dark and the lingering scent of a recently extinguished candle hung in the air. Soft music could be heard playing under the hum of the ceiling fan. The window had been left cracked open to let in the cool evening breeze. In the center of the room was an enormous bed and Alexis lay sleeping upon it – a mask covering her eyes. Covered only partially with a dark gray sheet, her...Read On

The boy next door

Mara's locked out of her apartment in nothing but a towel.

"Son of a bitch." The words slip from my lips as the door shuts behind me, and bumps against my ass. I clutch the white towel tightly around my body and turn around to bang against the door with my fist. "Open the door, Leah!" I yell, praying that she'll unlock the door and let me back into my apartment. "Hmm, let me think about that... nope!" Her voice carries through the door, and...Read On

Just A Tiny Spark

When a new librarian shows up, college student Molly's life is turned upside down.

I hadn’t seen her before, and like always when meeting someone I wasn’t familiar with, I became tongue-tied. Though today, for some unfathomable reason, my awkward shyness was even worse. I had decided to come first thing in the morning before the big rush to the library started, but that meant that we were the only two people here and there was no crowd to hide in. Her green eyes roamed up...Read On

The Pastor's Secret

An escort’s night with a lonely minister unexpectedly gives her both pleasure and hope

Shivering in a chilly December wind, April paused on the street and checked the address that she had been given. The little house tucked in beside an old church was clearly a “manse” built sometime in the past to house the church’s minister. Somehow, it did not seem likely that someone living in a manse would be hiring an escort. However, the address matched so April shrugged and walked up to...Read On

Fluent In You

Witness the music of our bodies.

I am fluent  In many languages  I communicate in many forms  By the shift of my tongue  The curve of my lips  As they mouth the words  Come to me  With an intonation  Specific to my melody  A harmonious call issued  A song of my heart  The singing of my body  Which I cannot control  When you are near To find words  That describe  The sounds that I emit  Fails  When your...Read On

Night Work

Sonnet #6: In alternating trimeter and tetrameter, and Shakespearean rhyme.

Wake up cold, scream out loud, Against silence and absent sound. Aroused, bold, cut the crowd, Feline frenzy on broken ground. Gowned in pretty tatters, Aching bodies pounce, hard as stone. Lustful whimsy shatters The house, of feather, pane and bone. Never worked after dawn, Never lent mind to laws nor crime. Suppose tonight it's gone, Forever, for always this time. ...Read On

A Sexy Christmas Tale That Will Grab Your Heart

She was on her knees. His cock, long, thick and perfectly formed, was in her hand. It was rock hard and curved upward. Her other hand ran across the tight stretch of skin over the muscles of his lower abdomen. For some strange reason, she knew that was a sensitive spot. She lifted him so that she could lick the surface of his scrotum, loving the feel against her tongue. Then she started at...Read On

The Power of Blood

The power of blood comes with a price - and not one you would have expected.

Beginning in ancient history, layers of myths have been wrapped around the truth about my kind; darkest mysteries and unspeakable horrors have been whispered in the darkness of the night until nobody living was able to discern truth from lie, and now only the mention of our name brings fear and nightmares. It is that fear that cloaks the nature of our existence and keeps us safe, keeps me safe. ...Read On

“I can always tell by the way a man moves if he is a good fuck or not.” “SORRY?” Her skin shimmered against the swirling red and purple rays of light. Penny’s body snaked provocatively to the swooping electronic bassline. Her movements complimented those of the cage dancers - the domain of burlesque dancers and strippers.
