You spark something in me
Poem and photo by L J Priest
Can you hear me?
Can you hear the silent screams of passion taking place right now in my soul?
As my hearts races in furious longing.
As my pulse quickens its beat along the extensive highways of my veins.
As my breath labors heavily in my lungs, and raises my chest in rhythmic anticipation of your love.
As my eyes darken under the fluttering of my lashes
as I steal sideways glances at your naked form.
You are perfection…..
Born from the joyous union of irresistible charm and impeccable physique.
The waves of my lust come crashing
onto the shores of my conscious,
and make me vitally aware that without you in my life,
my world is a muted place.
L. J. Priest

Quietly they steal away
The reflections of a challenging day.
The pictures that skipped across my view
go scattering into the night,
Only to wind their way back
into my brain
Through the pathways
of my dreams.

Ode to Amber Ale
Weighty lightness, solid levity,
Some ancient rite, draws me
To the foam.
Its celestial colour,
Its effervescent overflowing,
How it teases my buds,

“Call you mine now and forever
Till eternity be no more
If I whisper to you sweetly
Using love’s unbinding lore”

and what is the purpose of life but to fulfill those dreams.”
