Writing, in my opinion
Is like an incredibly intense orgasm

Not all the time, of course
But there are powerful sensations
In penetrating inspirations
That tickle you to the very core of your soul
Not every stroke of the pen
Brings such a pleasurable liquid release
Not all breaths are cut short
With disbelief or overwhelming affection
But there are such pieces
That do bring such releases
And while it empties you, it makes you whole

Swollen with anticipation
Riding the waves of ecstasy
As they cause you to quiver
And quake
Hoping that those receiving
Can feel the tremor too
It moves you through and through
With a climax as the goal

That’s what writing is, in my opinion.

Intro: Every once in a while, we connect with a soul on such a level that we feel lost without them. With them, we feel inspired, confident, and passionate. Even though some of these soul connections don’t last a lifetime, I don’t believe they should be devalued once they’ve evaporated. This piece was inspired by one such love… and even though it didn’t manifest the way I’d envisioned, I can’t discount the inspiration it ignited in me.

With map and compass
I want to explore
uncharted territory
… discover
untouched terrain

… To sail
the deepest oceans
and dive
– unafraid –
to unknown depths

… to ride the waves,
gasping for breath
on lucid dreams.

With map and compass
I want to journey
into the wild valleys
glistening, twinkling
in twilight shadows

I want to climb to the peaks
of the highest mountains
… drawn to the edge
where unabashed screams
release and linger
in anticipation
of passion’s echo

before letting go
of solid ground
where I can then explore
the gift of flight
without trepidation
with map and compass

And yet
even when
I find myself
with my back
to the wall
… even then, all
of life
is enchanted
… an exotic
of mystery
and magick…
