Perfect Day

September 23, 2019

Yesterday. A perfect Sunday – lovemaking in the morning then breakfast in bed; showering together, then to the sea, the cooling sea. Lunch at that place overlooking the bay, before returning to the beach and the sea. Lovemaking through the afternoon in our solitary cove, the rhythm of the waves and the cry of circling gulls orchestrating our frantic pleasures. In that small cave sheltered from the rain showers. Home in the dark, and then diner – followed by bed and more lovemaking. A perfect night, ending a perfect day.

Cherry Boy

September 15, 2019

you still ask me why i used to
pin down your arms whenever
we made love –
why i never let you control
the way we moved.
it was because i knew i was
something you did in secret.
the thing that made you flush scarlet whenever
your mother asked you about the cherry
coloured bruises running down your
neck like an aching riverbed.
‘imagine you meet the girl of your dreams
and she sees that?’ she’d say.
see. i knew what i was. of course i did.
and i couldn’t stand it.
i didn’t want it.
so whenever you ask me that question again,
print this answer into your neck too:
i did not want to be your bad habit –
i wanted to be your only habit. ❞

Burnt distance

 Take me
As in an endless fight
Invaded me
Put your hands on me
Earn my trust
Burn the distances
Between you and me

predator to prey

I love most that moment in our lovemaking when you go from predator to prey…

a kind of death

May 18, 2019

When you are making love don’t control. Go into uncontrol, go into chaos. It will be fearful, frightening, because it will be a kind of death. And the mind will say “Control!” And the mind will say, “Jump in and keep control, otherwise you will be lost in the abyss of it.” Don’t listen to the mind, get lost. Abandon yourself utterly and without any technique you will come to see a timeless experience. There will be no two in it: oneness. A consciousness will be there, a lucid passive consciousness will be there, you will know what is happening because you will be fully aware. But you will not be there; awareness will be there.

You have to imbibe the Tantra spirit – it is not a technique to be learned.

after love-making

February 14, 2019

“Why is it such a cliché to smoke a cigarette after love-making?” Hera asked.

“I suppose for those of us who enjoy smoking, it adds punctuation to the statement,” Bond said.

“Make it an exclamation mark, then,” she said.

take from her soul

July 24, 2018

It begins. And you must take from her soul. Palm against palm. Button after button, untying the dress of her spirit until you touch and possess that hidden skin with your eyes.

Making love with a woman and sleeping with a woman are two separate passions, not merely different but opposite. Love does not make itself felt in the desire for copulation (a desire that extends to an infinite number of women) but in the desire for shared sleep (a desire limited to one woman).

Milan Kundera
The Unbearable Lightness of Being

You would become a sultry verse
in this anthology of every day
lodged between the rush and
vacancy of broken hearts
and anguished limbs…

The way Magic works

February 25, 2018

The whole power of Magic is founded on Eros. The way Magic works is to bring things together through their inherent similarity.
