Taste it
lick my burning
face
shake walls
that bleed your name
when I lie at dawn
waiting for dusk
I smell the musk
that comes
in from the outside
to discover the inside
rattle my bones
with drum & snare
make love like whiskey
chasing down south
with limes and lemons
clenching to tongues
as salt cleans up
all the mess left
from nights passed on
and futures gone
with the wind and the
rain it soothes
pain which
linger on frames
that hold you
again when time
becomes your friend
enter into me
and shelter your thoughts
with stone layers
and red brick rock
since i will be waiting where
I always am
where dawn fades slowly &
dusk settles in

I haven't been hanging around here much lately...so I haven't read anything you've written until now.

It is wonderful to see a free verse poet posting such valid, creative work. Thank you for the read and I will look forward to reading more.

I never really ever considered myself a poet, but I am having so much finding things that I haven't discovered.  Everyone here is so very talented and open.  I feel right at home.  Thanks for being so nice.
Chris

Your images meld into a cohesive, storied whole. I've only read two of your poems, and I can already tell you I'll be looking for yr work again.
