Where Love and Lust Meet

 

Where Love and Lust Meet

This heart is frayed at the seams

Ripped and stitched many times over

It’s a wonder it believes in dreams

Has faith and hope

It’s a wonder

 

These lips, soft and wanting

Parting for a lover’s kiss

Find the tribulations of love daunting

Yet open up to receive

The soft embrace

Throwing

Caution to the wind

With reckless abandon-

 

Folly pursued with no regard

To the pain creeping up within

A frayed heart and wanting lips

Dishevelled hair

Sex scented sheets

Repose and cigarettes smoked

Causes the mind to think

 

Of innocent eyes

That yet believe

With their frayed heart

Its centre pink

Is Folly the new bedfellow found?

Where love and lust meet

"Power"

by Jeph Johnson

 

 He flaunts his girth as though the power in his strike was Heaven-sent

 Preying on an unprotected, helpless innocent.

 Her feelings grow and then are cut down like a tree...

 He's the lumberjack-of-all-trades lacking civility

 Her dreams drift across the landscape of hopes and fears

 As the clouds of his appearance rain multitudes of tears.

 When he's away the veil is lifted from her face

 Revealing beauty more powerful than the strength of his disgrace.
