Reflections of duality.

Do you see it?

There beyond our

sight, deep within our minds.



mirrored on the waters edge.

The world is our embodiment the water is our bed.

Ripples skimming the surface penetrating my core,

There’s no way back I’m left needing more.

In unison we draw the echo’s of our past

Hoping with innocence to remove our stubborn masks.

An aegis, nymphaeaceae in full bloom, reeds and autumn


Fears made in haste, murky waters pleading we flee.
There’s a moment between

light and dark

sun and moon.

My fingers reach

and you do not move.

Gold dust shimmering on the surface

The essence of our soul fearless they kiss.

And we are one.

United within a pool of desire

enflamed within the ancient whispers of passion.

Do you see it?

There on the waters edge

you are the reflection,




we are an echo of our

souls calling into the night.

The apotheosis of Helios

Sun God,

passion lighting the skies for all to see,

the lost flame you search for lays within me.

I search the night skies,

solitude whispering my gratitude

to distant illuminations.

I am the tides that roar into life.

The lone wolf that howls through your mind

and into the night.

Do you see it? The reflecting image

neither the same nor different and

there between us lays the divide,

where Zeus placed his knife.

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!
