The Con Artist

Standard

She laid on the cold slab
Delicately filleted
Lifeless
Exposed
Clear of all her vital organs
He left only her heart
Intended to be eaten last
As dessert
Savored for the foolishness in which she believed she could finally find everlasting love
“Ha tsk, tsk foolish girl”!

When

Standard

When my heart flutters out of the blue,

When I watch the birds take flight,

When I dream,

When the music makes me sing and dance,

When my conscious keeps me clean and straight,

When I smile for no reason,

When I feel the sun kiss my face,

When I hunger for the breeze to flow through my flesh,

When the present outweighs the future and the past,

When I taste wine and sharp cheddar cheese,

When I pray at night,

When I thank God for opening doors,

When my outlook feels bright,

When nothing else matters other than the feel of your hand,

Or the sweetness of your breath,

When I feel hugged tight and you’re not there,

When my desire goes into overdrive and I shiver ever so sweet,

When you are my last thought before I sleep,

And the first thought when I rise,

All these things,

So many other things,

They remind me of you,

I am always thinking of you- no matter what I do,

And I realize how lucky life is,

How damn lucky- my life is,

To have someone as wonderful as you,

To share every waking moment soulfully,

As one,

You are never far from me. 

All I Ask Of You

Standard
Be love,
In all its forms,

Not just words that dissipate into air,

Love me,
Truly love me,
Wrap me with the words you proclaim,
Tie me down,
So that I may feel them bind my soul,
My heart,
Love me in all loves physical forms,
Celebrate me,
Adorn my mind with your charms,
Leave me wishing,
Wanting,
Nothing more,
Than your nourishment,
To feed my hunger,
Desires,
Until the bitter end,
Of life,
Love me,
Truly love me,
With all your heart.
