sexy Black man, sunset, water, beautiful

lying beside you
feeling your every breath
against my ear

this heart is yours

a little salty
those tiny beads
a nourishing sweat

your body’s scent, a gift

the rise & fall
your chest filled with hope
each moment, a new beginning

what is past let go

a silence
screaming volumes




A society consumed with conformity

in the darkness, they hide
knowing their true colors

a society consumed with conformity
a culture callous and unyielding

under the covers, they indulge
warmth of bodies, a passion untold
while the world outside frowns

love can only exist
female & male

but a heart knows no gender
and yearns…
