Risking The Ride

I’m sending this out to two very special people in my life — One knows; the other might not. Still, it’s relevant, Lovelies

Never forget that the ride always carries risks, but that they are well-worth it.


Even in writing this
I fight the urge to diverge
Mind racing
A myriad of splinters
All faces concocted

Concurring to own your heart
Scenarios and schemes
Inch to the tips of these fingers
Scenes of allurement swirling by
Designed fantasies for control

Aching to indulge
I tease myself
With tempting power
As dreams slip away in an instant
Of who I wish to be

Lost in your sighs my heart cries
Asking for remembrance
As everything’s forgotten in a moment
That can never last
Instantly all becoming the past

In this insanity called us
It takes everything decent to refrain
From this need to be worshipped
As I crave to hold you like no other
To mold you into submission, no permission

Heels buried deep in a desire to make you mine
I stand firm and am refined
Tongue resisting speech
That would pour sweet words of honey
Conspiring to reign with fire

Baptized in lust’s holy waters
I see everything I am
Pushed to the limits in you
A compliment to a king
Hot breath giving wings to a rising serpent

Redemption mounting my spine
Triumphant every time
I tell you the truth
One more day
Keeping the darkness at bay

I couldn’t become any stronger
Or find joy in myself any longer
If I had not you as a mirror
An image of strength
Growing clearer

It takes everything I have
To subdue this temptation to seduce
To make you “fall” in love with me
Unsure that I can give it in return

My soul must not break
My will to good cannot fall
To the enticement to manipulate
Sacrificing freedom
To an admirer of lies

The spirit of truth must have free reign
In my domain of dichotomy subdued
Beautiful and strong I need you
To show me my own reflection
Weaknesses consumed in ashes of glory

I cling to the lover that lives inside
One that must not hide, or be tamed
A mare who when running wild
Finds unsurpassed joy
A release not brought by the hand of man

Yet still I risk the ride
