Resistance

Dear love, Remember how you used to say that I saw you? That I got you? Oh, baby. Do I got you. I couldn’t see before. Or, well. I could. But I didn’t see the damage you were inflicting. I saw yo...

Spirals

Dear love, I see your cycles. I see the drowning waters that you churn for me, adrift on a sea of your design. Drown in me, you whisper. Your mouth is an open invitation to suffering. Fall back ...

Ghost

Dear love, Today you’re the ghost entwined in my soul. I can’t see you or through you or into you, but I can feel your lingering pulling at me. Everyone assures me I walked away for a reason. But...

Within

Dear love, I still think about how you feel inside of me. In every way you’ve been within me. Your tongue, fingers, cock, soul, heart, love, mind, lies, pain, promises. In the heat of lust I can ...
