Saint Somewhere Street

For a moment I suspected your boyfriend knew that I’m the one who really has you.
You didn’t even realise, but you almost held my hand.

I guess we’re really in too deep. My girl’s girlfriend just hit me on the low asking questions. Said she saw us at a mall somewhere, and that her other friend saw us by the beach somewhere.

The way we’ve been moving is sloppy, we’re slipping, and sleeping, and creeping, while the world is watching, and listening, and the walls are looking like they are closing in.

Wish we could just go back to the beginning, but to be honest, we’d probably still end up here. But where do we go from here?

It was perfect because we were always working, you were my getaway, I was your comfort. But our separate lives we were still living.

But if you want to take this, us, somewhere… then I guess I’d have to go there… somewhere… because baby – you’re a hot, sexy, smart, adorable mess, and I’m just recklessly addicted to your caress.

the Day Moon left May for June

I was always apprehensive, not of the criticism, but the severe opposition the work is bound to arouse, if ever I allow it to be published at this untimely stage.

But then I remembered how Copernicus waited until he was an old man before yielding to his friends’ entreaties to publish, who then sent his book to the press, before the month of May when he finally was able to see a copy and touch it, but could not even read it since he died almost immediately after that.

So I figured if it’s going to kill me, then I’d rather die and leave behind an alright looking corpse.

Origin of Obscene iii : About You

when you left it didn’t so much hurt, although it took me some time to adjust
but knowing now for certain that I’m better off with the space
it kind of hurts to think that if I could get over what we had without much disturbance
then only the gods would know for sure what it’s going to take
for me to accept the idea of soulmate
because you were so close to perfect
but so was the Juche idea, at first
even the gods’ own religions

you ask, what is bliss?
well, that is to live the experience of your imagination
at the same time having your imagination informed by the experience
so simply – balance

47.2

be an honest woman but never candid, even when he makes you feel you can tell him anything  free of judgement, for even when he appears not to mind the detail, he seldom forgets those impressions, despite what he does with the finds

see, a man wants to get as close to a woman without truly knowing her, for fear he’ll discover she’s had similar sexual endeavours, or worse – more adventure, whatever effect that may have thus

A Scene for Saturday vii

said it had been some time since she last had a conversation half as stimulating, but her body language was telling me she wanted more than just a goodnight kiss at the end of our evening, so ostensive – it was quite obvious she was ready for action and couldn’t wait for me to get her out of her dress

she burned the incense but just as well not the chocolate cake she’d baked, poured a couple glasses of good Shiraz and even played for me a few strings on her guitar to some Ed Sheraan tracks

so the scene was set and you can just imagine what happened next…
when she said I was in need of a muse to inspire the series!
