a study in tension

what the sight and sound

scent of you feeds

the absence of it

done as much from consideration

i mean

you’re into the idea of it

but life is abrasive

it wears you down

but i am wired

built around

upon a foundation of wild appetite

not furtive but i sit with it

the release i seek

pin you down

tear you to throbbing pieces

with the unadulterated force of it

but you are safe

the washes of day keep my actions

clean as a priest’s hands

but the night will come

and i will, not reach,

but

take

Piercing Gratitude

A moment.

Flower bloom

Book open

So much love

It is piercing

And my eyes well up

At what it took to get here

Delight and anguish

But I am gentle

Quiet

Brutish at times

But learning the work

Is the reward

And here the reward

Is the work

Civil Twilight

Does the soul bruise

Breathe in the chill perfume

Of evening

As civil twilight tips its hat

In my direction

Spent days in comfortable silence

Speaking on the page

Life is a symphony

Some melodies remain

Others added

Some dissonance

Kept and others

Are wrong notes

Useful to remind me

That the trick is to keep playing.

Until She Sings – Beta Readers Wanted

I am looking for beta readers for this project.

UNTIL SHE SINGS

M B BLISSETT

You cannot stay silent if you want to be heard.

Caitlin Ross, a young singer-songwriter, makes her debut at an open mic night playing and singing her own songs for the first time. Struggling in her relationship with her once, nearly famous boyfriend Luke, Caitlin’s performance lends a new spotlight for him to pirate. But Caitlin has grown weary of life in Luke’s shadow.
When a handsome stranger, Daniel,  introduces himself after her set, the attraction is immediate and all consuming. His pursuit quickly throws Luke’s failings as a partner into stark relief. And she quickly finds herself caught between the past and the future, chained to the former by her guilt over Luke’s dependence upon her.

I am looking for beta readers, so please get in touch if you are interested in providing me with feedback on the book.

Sudden Storms

Speaking in actions

Elegant in silence

And never lost

In the deluge of task

Long enough not to

Close the distance

Reward myself with the scent of you

The way you fit my hands

No time to close the promise

But the anticipation flashes in my bones

Like lightning

And your smile stirs thunder

But it passes and the tepid sky

Ignores it

But we know

We know
