Speaking Seductively

Despite the distance
I hear it
My body pleads
Undeniable control
Delicious and magical quality

How he speaks
Deep tones
Passionate pauses
Drawn out words
So pleasing

Aching to be
An indescribable urgency
Sensual need

To experience
Him
A consuming fantasy

His
For the taking

Exclusively

Vault of Need

Deep inside
Vault of secrets
Written only in her mind
Lucious greed
Desire replays

Dimly lit scenes
Supple textures
Amplified pleasures echo

Heady seduction
Exhilarating

She waits
Anticipating
The moment
Reality exceeds imagining
Unlocked fervency
Exquisite need


Vault of Need

Farewell

How is it possible
Intensely deep
Heartbreaking
Beautifully devastating

But why

You were never even mine
I fell in love with the words
Imagined reality

An illusion
Illustrated by you
Embodied by me

Our story isn’t over
To be continued
In another time

Farewell for now

Future dreams
For I know
Someday
You
Will
Be
Mine

Christmas Shenanigans

5am Christmas Morning 2018

Twas the night before Christmas out in the country
Everyone was sleeping Snoring can be heard all through the house
My gun close by if I were to see a mouse

The stockings are hung by the chimney with care
I hope this yummy chocolate candy wasn’t meant to go in there

Out in the hall I made a big clatter
Gathering all the necessities for a little late night platter

It was a long drive here
And a few cappuccinos has me wired up so sleep is not near

Visions of family time, gifts and snacks
While trying to remain focused while driving
Singing and dodging all the deer

Now that I think about it I could really go for a beer
So out on the porch I sit listening to the sounds
Staring at the stars
Freezing my ass off even with all my layered winter gear


Pretty sure I hear a pig, or a coyote, maybe a deer
But it’s totally normal in these types of towns

I wonder if there are any bears
Gasp, OMG the chupacabra could also live here
Well frick
I hope not
If I’m not seen in the morning I probably wandered off in search of the perfect lighting to capture photos of creatures near

The thing about the silence Any and all noise definitely travels around
I’m almost certain the rustle of my late night snacks have already awakened
The 5 people that live in this town

XOXO Taylor Grace

Insatiable

Excitement’s heat
An enticing fire
Drawing me in
Such pleasure in the warmth
Temptation rising
Encompassed seduction
Stroking flames
Exquisitely designed
Lust
Sin
Desire sparks need
Striking my deepest fantasies
Words meticulously spoken
Guiding perfection
Building intensity
Submitting
Flaming urgency
Burning between
Insatiable voracity
Darkness glowing on me

Flight of Heart

I held it in
It was hard but I managed
Inside I was breaking
But I smiled

Just a little boy heading off on an adventure
You will always be that little boy to me
As the flight attendant took your hand
I gripped tight to my emotions
A mother’s love
Ensuring you didn’t see

No tears would fall
Heading towards the plane
Your back to me
I stood waiting

All my effort focused on holding back the emotions
Just before you were out of sight
You turned back to me
Those eyes
Fear and uncertainty

Again I smiled
That reassuring glow
Just enough
You smiled back
A little wave

To say, I’m ok Mom

Then you were gone
A sigh release
For I could no longer control the emotions bubbling up inside me
With tears streaming down my face
Unable to compose myself
I walked away

Through the airport
Where we had both arrived
I now walked alone
And I cried

I don’t remember the drive home
I do remember feeling so alone
The house was silent
I waited for your call
The phone finally rang
It was you
You made it there safely

The next 2 weeks
Seemed like an eternity
But before I knew it
I was back at the airport
Impatiently waiting

I caught a glimpse
My little boy
Running full speed
Tears again in my eyes

You missed me too
Big hugs
Lots of smiles

My sweet boy
Momma loves you
And is so happy for you to be back home with her tonight.

My Heart

Secrets

Lined by books
Row after row
Roaming aimlessly
Until she found an erotic novel
The pages saturated by explicit fantasies
Captured by the words
Her arousal growing
Sex pulsing
Under her skirt
Fingers delving
Satisfying release
Her naughty secret
On the floor
At the library

Love Sings

Words from the heart
Offering forever
Unconditional love
Comforting even the broken parts
His arms for protecting
Singing loves melody
Without hesitation
An offering
As he spoke, “It has always been you”
Realizing a dream
All of him
Forever and an eternity
Loves all of me
