Hot Pocket

Presented, almost entirely without comment (see tags below). Enjoy!

Hot Pocket (June-ish 2013)

While you warm,

I wait,

yearning

for your taste.

Moments freeze,

seconds crawl

’til I can

finally

unwrap you,

cast your casings

aside

and prepare to devour you whole.

Past Poetry

A few poems I’ve written over the years I feel deserve sharing. Please note and respect that these are my original works, but feel free to comment! Enjoy!

This first one was written for the first girl I ever kissed, senior year of high school. Oh, the nostalgia!

Lovers (May ’09)

soft, sweet, natural.

it felt so right, I must admit,

her fragile lips, so delicate,

her touch so light.

Her hips pressed against mine,

her soft grip holding me tight

was better than I could ever imagine,

so perfect,

so right.

it was lovely,

and I fully intend

to do it again

and again

and

again.

Next, Lolita, which was written for a girl I went out with during my college years. (More nostalgia!)

Lolita (’11)

I. Little Lolita,

why did you tempt me like that?

Naughty, naughty girl.

Hard kisses, full breasts;

such a woman in the sheets;

How could I resist?

My sweet Lolita,

don’t you look at me like that.

It’s not fair to tease.

II.

I won’t apologize for this

electricity

for the soft shock

that courses through me

every time

her lips

meet mine.

Hope you all enjoyed them! Feel free to leave any feedback, but keep in mind these are older works. My style has grown and changed since their creation, but I felt it was time to share them. Hopefully, they’ll be well-received!

Jolt (My personal idea-catching methods)

One thing I’ve found as a writer is that you never know when ideas will come to you.It’s part of the wonderful process of creating with words. During a time of inspiration, I find my pockets full of scraps of paper containing fragments only I could understand. I keep a mini notebook in my car and try to carry a full-size one with me when I go out, in case inspiration strikes. Last year, I added mini white-boards to my room to help with the idea-catching, one in the shower and one by my front door. I have to say, they really have helped, as evidenced below.

For those of you who enjoyed “School”, here’s the burst of inspiration that started it all, on my shower-side white-board.
