Chomping bubblegum and licorice Wearing skinny jeans and combat boots Sporting ponytails and crazy polish Staying up late and dreaming First dates and silly crushes Developing hips and busts To be young and growing up *** For my niece and god-daughter, for whom I will roller-skate again. 🙂 Happy Birthday Chasitie, I love you!
In the darkened room Alone, I primed my tools Candlelight sconces Used to elicit responses I sensed your presence Filled with acceptance From atop of the stairs With an adverted stare Cornflower blues Iridescent hues Hesitantly descended Into the shadowy darkness My heart suspended *** Your fate sealed When you willingly sought me out SteppedContinue reading “Shadows”

A short poem and personal experience/writing lesson at the end. The hunger grows As you watch the tides Ebb and flow Fallen face down Lost on an empty beach Water washes over you Cleansing away the pain Lulling the void within Coating you in numbness For an eternity of starvation During my monthly writers groupContinue reading “The Hunger”

Compliments of the last post, it’s going to be an Alicia Key’s sultry kind of evening. Tonight is all about relaxing and unwinding from the week with music and maybe some reading later, and then tomorrow I’ll write some more.
Warm up the vocals because it’s time to play Steve’s Weekly Music Mix challenge, and be sure to turn it up loud – trust me on this, you don’t want to hear me sing. If you want to join in on the musical fun it’s not too late, head on over to Steve’s page forContinue reading “Sing Along Songs”
Lightning strikes Teeth sink in Gripping its victim Overpowering its prey Building up dependency Creating cravings Constant struggles Getting out of bed Basic necessities omitted Hunger ignored Nourishment found Deadly source Beg, borrow, and steal A few moments of joy Constantly searching For one last hit Another hit, to Enter the veins Relieve the brainContinue reading “Smack”
Your love is my turning page, where only the sweetest words remain. Every kiss is a cursive line, every touch is a redefining phrase. —Ryan O’Neal, Sleeping At Last
Unproductive afternoon Can’t find my muse or groove How about five Haiku’s *** A lazy Wednesday Free time to fiddle about Nothing hampering me *** Don’t hold back, let go Laugh loudly, infect others Hold on to your youth *** Slip into the black Watch silently while you plan A method of attack *** FollowContinue reading “Take Five”

A Glock model 29 can be found tucked in either the small of his back or in the front at the waist forContinue reading “Dustin’s Weapons”
I need a plan! Even if things don’t go according to the plan, and they rarely do, I still need a plan in place because that’s the kind of gal that I am. March seems to be flying by at warp-speed, so I haven’t got much time left to waste. With that being said, kindlyContinue reading “Help Me Choose A Theme”
When Samantha saw the golden flecks shimmer to life in his eyes, her grin grew wider. To measure his reaction she boldly bit harder on her trapped bottom lip before releasing it to guide her tongue back and forth across the sensitive, swelling flesh. A giggle escaped her, breaking the spell and brought DustinContinue reading ““Let’s take a moonlight-stroll in the forest, while I share an ancient tale.””
A brief Sunday afternoon interlude. Later this evening I’ll either be working with Werewolves or incorrigible Dom’s. *** Alright Yeah Well now I must admit, I can’t explain Any of these thoughts racing through my brain It’s true Baby, I’m howlin’ for you Alright There’s something wrong with this plot The actors here, have notContinue reading “Da da, da da, da…”
Throwing back a shot of fire, Zack sat the heavy leaded shot-glass down and reached for his beer as he scanned the crowded room. It was his night off, but the club was his second home and there was no one waiting for him where he rested his head and showered at night, so heContinue reading “Stumbled on Innocence”
This is wonderful!
It’s time to put the iPod on Shuffle and answer three essential questions from Steve’s Music Mix Challenge with a song. The rules are pretty simple, put your player on shuffle, press play and answer the questions with the first three song titles. As I mentioned in a prior challenge, the pickings are slim becauseContinue reading “Steve’s Music Mix: Jewish-Reggae-Metal-Rapping-Bonanza”
“This can’t be the house,” Rich said to Margaret, his girlfriend and photographer, with excitement in his voice as he exited the truck leaving her behind. Margaret snatched the photo from the paperclip that secured it and held it out at an arm’s length, in front of her, to compare the image against the weatheredContinue reading “Their Presence Lingers”
