Orchid Fever

Ignore me
go on

I DARE you

not to notice. . .

battle of wills,

go on
give in to your
darkest, most delicious
carnal desires.

I’m here

get down on your hands and knees,
appreciate me up close
marvel at my detail,

flamboyant physique

purple, pink,
deep venation
lining inner lips,

like your heartbeat
pulsating even more
in sunlight.

come closer. . .
I can feel your rhythm

blood flooding
to the ends of your fingers,
tips tingling
as they caress me

I can feel your fever
getting stronger and stronger
until you can’t hold it in any longer,
a short, throaty gasp

fanatic, botanic


The Sun

What is it
about the sun
something I can’t quite put
my finger on…

As soon as she shines
like the light
of your lover’s eyes,
turning shadows
ghostly grey days
into pockets of halos
bathing all in gold.

She speaks to us,
be it warm summer rays
or bright winter beams,
powerful, incandescent light
source of my dreams.

Her energy
is too much to ignore
we can’t resist,
we need to feel it
absorb it
a rich, comforting touch,
sweet kiss of the sun
the same as a hug
from your mum.

It feeds our souls
fuels our hearts,
puts life back
where there was none,
there’s something about
the sun. . .


I give you my hand, and my heart;
I promise to cherish and respect you
care and protect you,
I will be your light in the dark.

I promise to love you when the rain falls
and when the sun shines;
in sickness and in health
in sorrow and in success
I will be with you for a lifetime.

Living, learning, loving
together, forever
and always.

*Happy Valentine’s Day to the best boyfriend ever. . . Love you forever and always xxxx

You and Me

I see the Marmite night sky
the exact shade of your eyes,

I see the strong, tall trees
their trunks matching your taut, broad thighs.

I see the sun’s golden rays
lighting the landscape with growth,

as radiant as your smile
which always fills me with hope.

I see the morning mist
slowly evaporating from the air,

yet no matter what happens you never disappear
when I need you you’re magically there.

I see cool raindrops falling
pattering lightly on my forehead,

as sweet and refreshing as the kisses you give me
which send me to sleep when I’m lying awake in bed.

I see a rainbow enveloping the whole sky
a glowing gateway from above,

as colourful and eternal
as our love.

I see a new day dawning
sparkling and new,

I see our future together
and it feels good enough to be true,

because you have me
and I have you.


He rises
like steam


my back is turned
but instinct tells me
he’s there.

I would abolish all street lighting
every city in the world
would hail darkness

so all could notice
could marvel

He’s an angel who guides me
my white knight
from above
and within,

my love
will always be
