“I had to wonder if men were so blinded by beauty that they would feel privileged to live their lives with an actual demon, so long as it was a beautiful demon.” 
― Arthur GoldenMemoirs of a Geisha


Sound of Your Smile

Come here
And take off your clothes
And with them
Every single worry
You have ever carried.
My fingertips on your back
Will be the very last thing
You will feel
Before sleeping
And the sound of my smile
Will be the alarm clock
To your morning ears.
Come here
And take off your clothes
And with them
The weight of every yesterday
That snuck atop your shoulders
And declared them home.
My whispers will be the soundtrack
To your secret dreams
And my hand
The anchor to the life
You will open your eyes to.
Come here 
And take off your clothes.

For the first time

“I became fascinated by your goodness …

I was in love, for the first time in my life …

All I want is to deserve you”

-Choderlos de Laclos, Dangerous Liaisons.

My Love is Fierce

  “I don’t love casually.

When I love, it’s fierce.

It’s my soul ripped wide open and raw.

It’s my whole heart on display.

It’s all I have and everything I know,

handed over to you, like a gift.

And I hope you unwrap it gently.” ❤

by Stephanie Bennett Henry


chasing tiny moments


Let us spend

our lives

chasing the

tiny moments of


that hide in

borrowed breaths,

stolen glances,

and the last


before smiling lips

come to rest.

~Tyler Knott Gregson


The sacredness of tears

There is a sacredness in

tears. They are not a mark

of weakness, but of power.

They are the messengers

of overwhelming grief, of

deep contradiction and of

unspeakable love.

~Washington Irving


Full of Dreams

She’s the places that

she has a desire to visit.

She’s the pieces of quotes

that are splattered in ink

in her favorite books.

She’s the road trips she

hopes to go on.

She’s the beautiful characters 

that mesmerized her in

her favorite books.

She’s full of dreams,

and I hope they one day come true.

~Alexa Evangelista (A.E.)


Light your way home

“I’d cut my soul into a million different pieces just to form a constellation to light your way home. I’d write love poems to the parts of yourself you can’t stand. I’d stand in the shadows of your heart and tell you I’m not afraid of your dark.”
~ Andrea Gibson


The air around me

“The first time his laughter touched the air around me, the earth sighed and the moon smiled, and I knew nothing would ever be the same again. I held him in my mind, my body, my soul, like a whisper in the wind. Like a totem in my heart. He became the key to words I had never been able to speak and tears I had never been able to cry. I knew I would live the rest of my life with his love dancing in the spaces only we could see.”

~Amanda Patterson


Touching the Pleasure

If I am to kneel down 
in front of your nakedness 
if I am to speak softly 
to your arousing desire 
if I am to say 
all the things I want to do 
would you? 
Without you or I touching the pleasure 
would you? 
I will smile at its arrival 
wetting my lips in hungry anticipation 
looking up at you with can I eyes 
Needing to taste pre again 
watch me and my look of love 
know it’s my want 
let me feed 
from you

Silver Shadow

“Where are you hiding my love?
Each day without you will never come again.
Even today you missed a sunset on the ocean,
A silver shadow on yellow rocks I saved for you,
A squirrel that ran across the road,
A duck diving for dinner.
My God! There may be nothing left to show you
Save wounds and weariness
And hopes grown dead,
And wilted flowers I picked for you a lifetime ago,
Or feeble steps that cannot run to hold you,
Arms too tired to offer you to a roaring wind,
A face too wrinkled to feel the ocean’s spray.” 
― James KavanaughThere Are Men Too Gentle to Live Among Wolves

Happy Inside

My senses feel you guiding my hand,
My feeling now touching your beauty inside,
Eyes still closed I’m dreaming for more,
With this kiss our tongues feel for more,
Gliding my hands along your perfect curves,
Watching your eyes as I look at your soul,
Ecstasy brings a new height for the way we two feel,
Still playing with tongues and the movements of hands,

I feel a pleasure deep inside,
I feel at a loss no longer in control,
With every movement my bodies alive,
With every caress a deeper feeling of you is now mine,
Eyes still closed I feel your delight,
This feeling I’ve felt has been the touch of your skin,

Holding you tight closer inside,
Everlasting moments our true delight,
All control we lose again and again,
Becoming closer I see you smiling within,
All day blushing and smiling inside,
All day waiting for the next time we collide,
All day knowing we’re happy inside.

Philosophy of Love

The fountains mingle with the river,

And the rivers with the ocean,

The winds of heaven mix forever

With a sweet emotion;

Nothing in the world is single;

All things by law divine

In one another’s being mingle;–

Why not I with thine?

See the mountains kiss high heaven

And the waves clasp one another

No sister flower would be forgiven

If it disdained its brother;

And sunlight clasps the earth,

And the moonbeams kiss the sea;

What are all these kissings worth

If thou kiss not me?

Percy Bysshe Shelley
