Run Ashore

Sometimes
I want to dive into those eyes
and explore the possibility

Sometimes
I want to be your anchor
and hold you fast in a rough sea

Sometimes
I want to run ashore with you
and escape this regimented navy

Sometimes
I want to lay claim to buried treasure
and not have to declare my bounty

Sometimes….

The Softest of Prey

Poisonous thoughts that fester
and gather in momentum
words chewed up to be spat out
in-accurate searing venom
Insecurity serves to constrict you
captivates me, the softest of prey
shedding skin in the shape of apologies
we recoil from impending decay
