Favorite Quote:
“A hero is someone who rebels or seems to rebel against the facts of existence and seems to conquer them. Obviously that can only work at moments. It can't be a lasting thing. That's not saying that people shouldn't keep trying to rebel against the facts of existence. Someday, who knows, we might conquer death, disease and war.” -Jim Morrison

A touch of fire,
A touch of tender,
A touch of softness,
A touch of desire.

Your fingers
Set my soul ablaze.
Still, they linger
In a lusty haze.

The contour of my hip.
The goosebumps on my skin.

Your body whispers
An unintelligible sound;
I strain to listen,
It falls to pieces on the ground.

I must never assume.
Like fire,
Your touch consumes,
Could make you for a liar.

You leave a trail of obscurity.
Warm, it glows.
Rocky security.
A long wait 'till my pulse slows.
