Flowing shadows spilled across the room, chasing amber shades of sunset in a glorious dash for the freedom of the door, warming a path for but a fleeting moment the ivory flesh of the sleeping figure upon the bed...

#sensewrds 425

📸Annie Peng
My isolation
Blissful tranquil oasis
Time to be myself


Those hours I did while away
Dreaming of a better day

Watching clouds pass on by
Scudding in a brilliant sky

Where have our dreams gone?
Did they melt away as ice ‘neath the sun?


Beneath the mask you always wear
Beats the heart of someone who deeply cares
Tis just a front - a cruel masquerade
A cloak you wear to keep you safe
I feel the pain you try to conceal
Please let me inside so you can heal

#VerseAngel 346


Rainbows and unicorns
Brightly shine and dance
Kaleidoscopic brilliance
Dazzling the curious mind
Chasing away grey clouds
Until all that’s left
When all’s said and done
Is the soaring dove of hope


Waking dreams comfort
Insomniac nightmares haunt
Living on the edge


With nothing but lipstick
And a luminous crimson smile
She lured them so close
With her beauty she beguiled

A Queen Bee in her element
Reigning supreme
No one could eclipse her
She was living the dream

#verseangel 349

Breathe with me now
Gentle and slow
Let the worries
Of this world
From your shoulders
Swiftly flow
Tomorrow shall come
But today is still here
Enjoy what you have
Don’t borrow unknown fears


Reaping the wild wind
Watching them come
From the East they flowed
We dared not run

With nowhere to run
Here making a stand
With backs to the wall
They’d not take our land

Riding hurricanes of horror
Screaming banshees came down
Savage as locusts
Devouring our town


So many thoughts
Tumbling and spinning
Wild confusion within
Did I misunderstand?
Was it all a game?
Cruel masquerade
The wrong impression
Tis not a mistake
I’ll ever make again

#verseangel 351

A free spirit dancing
Floating on a breeze
Her spirit ever flying
Captivating everyone
Smiling wild flower eyes
Above lips always smiling
She is sunrise perfection
Happiness and light


If only we could
Then of course
We would
Indulge nocturnal desires
In written words
That we could keep
And savour at will
When the hours are long
And the nights are still
Late night confessions
We dare not speak
Unrequited longings
For each other
We seek


Silken gravelled tones
Strumming my senses
Luring my mind
To the darker side
Where passions consume
Drawing me further
His voice beckons
Drowning in sensation
Addicted & craving
Lost to the rapture
Beguiled by the beast
This maze of insanity
They call falling in love

#dreamcatcher reveries
Fantasies of the heart
What I wish for
In the depths of night
You capture
Hold safe
Til I see the light

The night comes alive
Neon ricochet bright
They’re coming for you
Lighting up the night

Run, baby, run
As fast as you can
The tracers will find you
Bullets from a gun

Shapes and shadows
Echoes and screams
Blood on the cobbles
Brutal death foreseen

#DarkLines 451
📷Ryan Oswick

A conscience stained
In scarlet ink
Whispers of lust
Passion and slink

Souls and flesh
Alike become one
Craving and addiction
Flaming combustion

Colliding & breaking
Apart fall the rules
Burning desires
Molten lava quickly pools

📷Caras Ionut

Over the fence
Where the wild poppies grow
My thoughts go dancing
Among hawthorn hedgerows

Birds and wild flowers
Sweet meadow grass
Summer time blossoms
The hours slowly pass

(📷Chris Barbalis)
#poemtrail 451

Early in the morning
When roseate dawn is rising
With creeping fingers of light
Chasing the dark away
The very air hangs still
As if the land holds her breath
For but a long drawn out moment
Before silence is broken
And bird song sweetly sounds
And all is ...perfect


Upon the edge
Deeply breathing
Eyes shut tight

Everyone pushing
Everyone pulling
My mind spiralling
Utter confusion

Cannot step back
Afraid to go forward
Frozen in place
Make a decision

One step
Two steps

If I fall...
What if
I fly?


Wild country pursuits
Nature’s bountiful heaven
Tranquil meadowland


Fleeting memories
Snapshots of my life
Linger yet within my mind
Fading from sepia to black and white

Faces I can still recall
The names long forgotten
Haunt my imagination
Old friends I’m sure to meet again

#blackdahliaprose 558

Shrouded in grief
She mourns
Lost and alone
She trembles
Silent and pale
She stands
Feeling his presence
His breath upon her neck
The noose tightening
Within her mind
Rasping words growl
“not even in death shall we part”
And a tear falls...

📷el tracador del luz

#darklines 452

Lingering whispers
Smouldering eyes
Caressing touches
Slow burning fires

He came in the night
Answering my prayers
His arms wrapping tight
How passions did flare

No promises made
How could this last?
I lived in the moment
Nothing further was asked...


#hydrangea Road was where she lived
A quiet cul-de-sac in a quiet village
Everyone knew everyone else
With a lovely sense of community spirit


Too far and too fast
Look away and you’ll miss life
Open your eyes wide


#buckshot n bourbon
Hell of a night
He’s a nightmare walking
Looking for a fight

If you see him coming
Get out of his way
Better still, I warn you
Go another way

Been a long time coming
He’d finally had enough
He’d bring the war to them
Things were going to get rough


Mournful wraith upon a moonless night
Her path meandering where no steps follow
Veiled in mist she treds soft upon dusty petals
Ever waiting for her once-true love
Caught betwixt the worlds unresting
And so her ghost walks...still


Leaving behind all that we knew
Taking that leap into the blue
Finding freedom in just letting go
Escaping the past - reap what we sow

#SlamWords #36thEdition R1

On into the distance
Rolling curves lead to
Ever more open vistas
Excited to explore

With no map to follow
Just going with the flow
I’m like tumbleweed blowing
Along the open road

#SlamWords #36thEdition - R4

Jumping at the chance
Never thinking twice
A leap of faith I’m taking
Not caring of the price...

#SlamWords #36thEdition - R9

Holding on to a dream
I’ve not a one
This time I’m taking control
I’ll be dead before I’m done

#SlamWords #36thEdition - R10

Miles and miles of open road
My journey a long one
My conscience a heavy load

Choose a direction
Make a decision
It doesn’t really matter
My mind cloudy of vision

#SlamWords #36thEdition #encore - R1

“flip a coin” he tossed, smirking with insolence, his close set eyes taunting - knowing I needed a set of wheels and wondering just how far I’d got to get them...

#SlamWords #36thEdition #encore - R2

“looking for adventure, little lady?” the voice growled close from the shadows but were swiftly followed by a gurgling sound as his larynx was crushed by a merciless unseen force. “nope” she tossed, her black as night gaze aglow...

#SlamWords #36thEdition #encore - R4

Moonshine running was in my blood, the back ways & byways familiar as the back of my hand but this time it was different. The Feds were all over us like flies on a corpse and the scenic routes wouldn’t be our saviour this time....

#SlamWords #36thEdition #encore - R5

When the wind sings, my soul soars.  It whispers of freedom and far reaching horizons where time is subjective and means nothing...

#SlamWords #36thEdition #encore - R7

Running on nothing but empty, yet still I ran, never looking back for what was back there? Only bridges left burning, the stench of the pyres still coating my throat, eyes raw with strain I raced on into the night...

#SlamWords #36thEdition #encore - R8

“follow the horizon” the old man said but I should’ve known never trust a drunk even if he was an old friend.  Who knew finding a haven would be so hard? No one here to trust & sure as hell no one would miss me but I’d been running so long

#SlamWords #36thEdition #encore - R10

Show me the dark side of your smile
Whisper of wicked things worth my while
Tempt me from the good path unto the bad
Make me forget everything that made me sad



Just another maybe in a long line
Of what ifs and if only
Just another lost opportunity
Another chance to win it all
Staring out at an empty void
Wouldn’t it be easier to let myself fall?


Fleeting sensations that soothe my soul
Cascading waterfalls of quiet solitude
Amidst shade dappled meadows
And murmuring crystal streams
There shall you find me
Quietly dreaming

#sensewrds 437

A New York minute
Frenetic going places
Forgetting to breathe




Blessed with an unexpected gift
Of glittering ribbons of starlight
Moon dust and diamonds
We danced beneath the heavens
And counted our blessings

Dance with the Devil
Obsidian revelry
Demons in motion


We walk in the light
Trailing writhing shadows

...sashayingwith sinuous sensuality across the neon lit street to purr with licentious promise close into his ear, “whatever U want is yrs”, her dark liquid gaze slumbrous beneath the flickering street lamps “for the right price” crimson lips a dewy temptation...

#verseangel 377


A panther prowling the night
Searching the shadows for prey
Hungry for that first bite
The taste of sweet flesh
Running with blood
Slavering temptation
Senses on high alert
He’s alive with sensation

 #DarkLines 456
📸Saso Tusar


Make me no promises
Tell me no lies
Don’t play with my heart
Don’t drown in my eyes

My heart is my own
That’s how it shall be
You cannot dissuade me
My soul shall fly free

So take my hand
Escort me to the dance
But do not go further
In this you’ve not a chance


Thunder n lightning
Strobing illumination
Nature’s percussion


Within shadows
Dark and deep
She waits for you
Pleasure to seek

Secrets unspoken
Heart and soul
In the dead of night
Fantasies unfold

Footsteps echo
A key in the lock
With pulse rate soaring
A pistol she cocks

#PoemTrail  458

📸Yossi Kotler

“We’ll meet again
Don’t care where
Don’t care when”
Lingers sweetly upon the air
Serenading my mind
With haunting memories
Flowing images of faces
A past slowly fading
A time when we were
All in it together

#SenseWrds 440

Lavender twilight
Obsidian addiction
All consuming fire


Hungry & silent
They come in the night
Ravenous wolves
To savour my plight
Haunting memories
In tumbling flow
Prick at my memory
Tear at my soul
Within my mind
I feel him inside
Watching in silence
Awaiting his prize
I’m the moth
He’s the flame
A secret craving
I call his name

Gentle healing balm
Sweet benediction
A moment of bliss
Heaven’s soft kiss
When all is madness
Chaos and fire
I take a deep breath
And my fears expire
Kissed by rain
Cleansing baptism
My soul is refreshed
Through a glittering prism
📸Daria K. Ritch

Seduce my craving
Feed my hungry addiction
You know you want to


“no promises” she whispered, her palm pressed against his lips

“I’ll take the here and now” her liquid gaze soft upon him

“if that’s all I can have of you...” her words trailing to nothing


Tempestuous will
Furious churning maelstrom
Wrath of vengeful gods


From out of the mist
Slow riding they came
Choosing their path
This was no game

Reiving their skill
Skulduggery their aim
Rich pickings to take
The land set aflame

Jingle of harness
Pike and sharp sword
By the light of the moon
They’ll lift the herd


How #verdant the land
Once called my home
Blooming and golden
Oh why did I roam?

So far have I journeyed
From the place of my birth
Yet still my heart yearns
4 the scent of the earth

The land where I took
My first trembling steps
A paradise in memory
A haven to me


Bleeding the blues in crimson streams
His six string lover comes alive in his hands
In tender adoration he softly strums
Coaxing rhythms sublime for an aching heart
As lyrical lines purr sweetly upon the night
And a city in rhapsody vibrates 2 the notes
📸Andrew Hawes

The endless fall
Until sweet oblivion
Swallows my soul

Wrapped in grace
A rapturous prayer
I taste the divine
Pure and rare

And in that moment
When all seems lost
Hope breaks free
And all is not lost

Let me be the one
you reach for
The one who
holds your secrets
The one who
knows what you need

Let me be the one
you dream of
The one who
holds your heart
The one who
you run too

Run with me
where the wild roses bloom
Run with me
where horizons give us room

This wild #escapade
we’re running on
Leaving it all behind
and we’re long gone


A rain of stars cascading
in diamond spills
of glittering profusion
Shimmering wonder
of Heaven’s touch
entranced by the beauty
Consumed by the love
lost in temptation’s kiss
A gift from above   
📸Margarita Kareva

Lilies of the Valley
Daisies of the Dead
Crown her brow in bloom
Her soul too soon now fled

#DarkLines 46
📸Alejandro Salazar

Dance without a care
Hungering for the sweet taste
Drench inhibitions



Far away and out of sight
Where the faeries dance
Beneath glittering stars
That shimmer and glow
To the beat of the heavens
And breathing starlight
Between soft heartbeats
Whispering lips wish magic
Harmony and peace
Upon a world so ill at ease

Breathe my name
A soft prayer in the night
Let it linger sweetly
Upon your lips so light


Unicorns prancing
Glittering in the gloaming
Sparkle and moon dust


A spray of sparks fountained from naked rims grinding upon wet tarmac as what was left of the truck careened out of control, lit from behind in the glare of the sudden explosion that blazed the night sky, leaving only destruction on its wake...

#SlamWords #37thEdition - R1/2/3


From splintered shadows that shift and slide in oily malevolence, demons spill forth and where fire and smoke collide they ripple and bloom in a dazzling display of cruel anticipation of the nightmare terrors unleashed upon a slumbering world...

#SlamWords #37thEdition - 4/5/6

In the ringing silence after the passionate storm has passed, the tension released in carnal pleasure, languishing in the aftermath: when the last glow fades then what comes next? When it’s over could the past be forgotten or ever forgiven?

#SlamWords #37thEdition - R 7/8/9/10

Sensory fascination
Collision divine


The ash-dusted morning air hung heavy as a shroud, all life shattered and broken as the land... littered among the remains lay only remnants now of lives once lived in the basking rays of the sun, now swept away in the tsunami of pain...

#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore - R 1/2

Jaded jewel
Once so bright
Aged now
Only seen at night
Streaks of faded colours
Her beauty once so clear
Now only seem to highlight
What about time there is to fear

#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore - R3

Hot & hazy, the air hung thick as warm molasses that July night, the Spanish moss barely swaying and the feel of sweat trickling a carnal journey making you think of cool lips wreaking salacious havoc upon heated flesh as I lingered...waiting

#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore - R4

Sweet temptation
I cannot resist
I’m a slave to sugar
With a strawberry twist

Cold as ice
Melts upon my tongue
Addictive craving
I’ll never be done

So one more scoop
Maybe two
Feed my hunger
You’ll be rewarded
If you do...💋

#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore - R5

T’weren’t nothin’ I could put my finger on but he had a lazy kind of vibe as he moseyed on... never stoppin’ long in any one place, you know? Just mindin’ his own business, keepin’ out of trouble but the ladies felt it... an’ hungered...

#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore - R6

Petrichor and roses
Scent of Summer

Beneath this oak
Shall I rest in peace

A swift rain weeps
Gentle tender balm

Grieve me not
For here shall I be

#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore - R7

Soothed by silence
Such calming peace
My soul weeps for joy
At last I can rest

In the arms of Morpheus
Let me rock to sleep
I’ve found my haven
In his care shall I keep

#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore - R8

Running from the law
Bourbon and bullets
These renegade days
Bandits and bravado
Are coming to an end
Nowhere to go
Backed into a corner
But we’ve been in tighter
And lived to tell
But one of these outlaw nights
They’ll send us straight to hell
#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore -R9

At the crossroads of history Destiny awaits
But I’m suddenly uncertain
Which direction should I take?

Should I stand or fall?
Am I right or am I wrong?
Once I head down that road
My honour may be gone

#SlamWords #37thEdition #encore - R10

Friday night down the docks
How cruel the floodlit pit
Where crimson flows
And bodies sweat
Razor sharp blades
Mortal flesh do meet
Knife Fight Night
Always drew a crowd
Bloodthirsty for more
Violent craving
Marking her prey
One by one
& her hunger grew

Long hot August nights
Deny illicit cravings
Your pleasure is mine


A quiet conversation
Where no one knows us
In some little bistro
Without any fuss

This feeling I get
Whenever you’re near
A bond invisible
Yet oh so clear

Intangible shadows
Cloaking our secret
Long lingering looks
No words are needed


Watch me walk away
The past a trailing anchor
Cast adrift and sunk

Tango at midnight
Lead me beneath silver stars
In rhythm in love


Desire is a flame
Nurture it to fiery life
Burn oh baby burn 🔥


Let my aching soul drift away
Upon gentle intertidal ruffles
Floating beneath crayola skies
I dream of you and fantasise
Of what may be in a perfect world
Beyond the misty caliginous shores
Where you can at last be mine
And I can be forever yours


Look no further now
Sleight of hand betraying hearts
Downfall of affairs


Look on the bright side
Happiness is infective
Smile and others smile


In the heat of his devouring gaze
Every night is just the same
I dance for him and none other
Gold is the shade of our exchange
He doesn’t speak nor do I
In this charade we do not lie
He is my protector in a cruel world
But when I dance my dreams unfold
#sensewrds 449

By the light of a silvery bashful moon
Shyly peeping from behind a cloud
Dance me to the far side of heaven
Far from the chaotic madding crowd


Down down down below
Underground shall we now go
Long lost forgotten souls
Vaults of seething dead
In the catacombs far below the street
Obsidian depths our eyes do seek
Looking for what I do not know
But I know it’s close
Down down down below

465 #DarkLines
📸Travis Grossen

“Drugs, my love?” her cool gaze resting for an instant upon my face

“#anathema to me” lips curling in wry self-mockery

“this is my only drug now” indicating her smouldering cigarette

“those days are a memory now”

then, after a humourless laugh

“a dark memory” 


She had the kind of looks that would stop a raging bull in his tracks, make him forget what he’d been raging about & want to give it all up an’ go roll in a field somewhere

She had the kind of acreage that a man could spend a lifetime sowing wild oats and cultivating


Of smoke and shadows shall U be
conjured from mysterious splintered reality

Ensnared fascination in a world gone mad
you’re a wicked illusion - a soul gone bad

So come lie with me in this cruel endless dream
 where everything is tumbled - not what it seems

#cornflower eyes
Cherry red lips
Cotton candy cheeks
Shadow dusted lids

Whatever you want
Is what she’ll be
Your private dancer
For all eternity

Within your mind
Obsidian depths
She’ll live forever
You have to accept

#dusty petals strewn
Where lingering shadows mourn
Hidden from the sun


I taste your name upon my tongue
Bittersweet rapture in the morning sun
The space beside me has grown so cold
Without your heat and passion so bold

Tread lightly
Though you may know the path
Proceed gently
Though this world may be known
This is my dreamscape
Don't shatter it


Between them
I sit
Their only child
Not knowing what to say
Replaying our life
The good & the bad
The laughs along the way


Each breathless second
Measured in pulsation
Stretched taut
Upon a rack of sensation
Anticipation burns
Once more


You are the one
I cannot regret
You are the one
I shall not forget
Your touch
Your voice
Your very soul
Calls to me still
Echoes within
Feeds my need
Keeps me whole
So think of me
In dead of night
My arms around you
Holding so tight


Yesterday’s tears
As diamonds upon glass
Carve silent tracks
Salty streams
To bathe flushed cheeks
In warming balm
Of sweet forgiveness
For all my sins


You are the drum
I am the beat
Drawn to your rhythm
Savouring the heat

With a single touch
I’m on sweet fire
Set me wildly aflame
A passionate pyre


Look in the mirror
And what do I see?
Experience and wisdom
Looking back at me


Destiny is for others
Those for whom the Gods
In capricious whim
Have a wicked purpose
What was written in the stars
Now in the heavens realigned
And I am left wandering
A soul long forgotten
Awaiting my time
Awaiting my rebirth
Not knowing what I’ll find...


Walk on the wild side
Animalistic passion


Be it Heaven or Hell
Life is what you make it
You can take a one way ticket
Or maybe spin in circles
It’s all up to you
And how you face it
Running from your demons
Tearing down the hill
Straight into Purgatory
A sad end to it all

📸Felicia Simion

I looked for you
In the dead of night
My dreams so haunted
Your touch so light

I hear your voice
Echoing still
That secret need
Stealing my will

Addicted to you
My secret craving
There is no escaping
There is no saving


His lips spilled promises
oh so sweet
I could not resist
I was too weak
And so he took me
By the hand
Beguiling my mind
With mysterious plans
I was completely
Under his spell
Mesmerised by his voice
Oh so swiftly I fell


Velvet brown
Dark as sin
With just one look
I’m drowning within

A wicked smile
Curl of the lip
I’m melting fast
Aching to sip

Can you feel it?
Hot and sweet
Driving me wild
A burning need


He was a fire banked
Embers aglow
But awaiting the scent
Of her sweet surrender
To arouse the beast
And seduce her below


How hard the Big Easy
Neath a Creole moon
As the Fleur-de-lys shines
& the voodoo dolls croon

Beads & brass bands
In the depth of the night
Intoxicate the city
Bathed in neon light

So take my hand
We'll swing til we're dead
Dance thru the night
Paint the town red
#PoemTrail 469

How silent the night
Beneath an #iridescent moon
Whether prey or predator
Her silver caress captures all
To enrapture and entrance


It’s a lonely road
To Hell and back
Strewn with memories
Fade to black

Where do dreams go?
As we awaken
Lost and forgotten
They are forsaken

In song & silence
We do remember
Those we loved
Each cold December

#image credit: Aesthetic

Dancing as if her emotions were exploding within
Unable to contain the seething cascade
Held down too long they were a keg awaiting the spark
And as the guitars played in fantastical rhythm
She unleashed the wildness within held too long in the dark

#SenseWrds 454

Surrender to me
In the misty veil
As the world falls away
It’s so surreal

With senses surrounded
I’m touching the void
Drowning in sensation
My will no more buoyed

Whirling in motion
Caught in your spell
I’m a unicorn dancing
All the way to Hell

📸I. am_ nah
#DarkLines 470

There once was a Roman named #Calculus
A big strapping fellow with a big strapping abacus

No one did it better in all sorts of weather
With fingers flying he summed hell for leather


Blues & back-roads
Always in my blood
Seeping from the soul
Saxophones do weep
Haunting my mind
Weaving a sultry spell
I’m drawn into their web
Surrounded by rhythm
Heart & bones tremble
To the addictive lure of
A New Orleans magician

📸1) Bruce Weber 2) Comstock

Morning in mourning
A veil of tears
The day of the funeral
Goodbye to those years
And the future ahead
We’ll not get the chance
Now that you’re dead
I love you still
My blessed friend
& forever shall remember
The smile in your eyes
Your heart so tender


Behind the light
Fading fast
A Summer feeling
Now in the past
& reminiscences
Of a time long gone
Names and faces
I try to remember
But in the sunset mystery
They are but embers
Fading so fast
The cruelty of dementia


The first thing I do, when waking up, is listen, just listen, to the chirping and singing of the glorious Dawn Chorus as the world awakens, too. 

#SlamWords #38thEdition #encore - R1

For but a fleeting moment in endless millennia, it all came to a halt & silence reigned. The hum of traffic quietened to nothing and all we saw were vehicle-empty streets.  Then the world kick started spinning & streets filled again.

#SlamWords #38thEdition #encore - R7

Joe, you look like a bum *striking a match to light the Marlboro dangling from his lip* do you even know what “formal” means? *a cynical twist to my lips as I gave a cool once over to his casual ensemble* the flip flops will have to go!

#SlamWords #38thEdition #encore - R8

A gentle nudge would be all it took
No one would know nor even look
Just one little push and over he’d fall
He’d not see it coming - no chance to call
No kick in the ass for you my friend
You’ve had it coming - this is the end

#SlamWords #38thEdition #encore - R3

With each breath upon my neck he coils my inner tension tighter, each word growled to my ear draws me closer to the edge. How expertly he holds me poised, teetering, begging until I’m falling into relaxed bliss held in the haven of his arms.

#SlamWords #38thEdition #encore - R5

Each one so perfect, so singular & unique
So perfectly formed - each a mysterious wonder
Yet each so fleetingly fragile in its perfection
No carbon copy could ever do justice
To the magical mystery of our glorious Mother Nature

#SlamWords #38thEdition #encore - R9

As the cacophonous world quietens, fades away, there’s just you & I here & so much to say.  But, as we share a long look, it’s all left in the past, words not needed. It all comes down to this - memories & love & once upon a time...

#SlamWords #38thEdition #encore - R10 (final)


How blessed is
The gift of words
Expressing the complex
In kaleidoscopic imagery
Weaving tapestries of emotion
Drifting upon a flow of ink
Steered by sentiment
Writers chart a course
Straight to the heart
The very heart and soul
Of the spellbound reader
