i find my deliverance in you 33

Now when I am near to you, dear friend, Passing out of myself, being delivered — Through those eyes and lips and hands, so loved, so ardently loved, I am become free; In the sound of your voice I dwell As in a world defended from evil. When I am accounted by the world to […]

i want to love you 27

I want to be the door in your jam– always close to your strong members. I want to swell with our humid love so we will be stuck together. Love-locked, your frame around my solid core, we’d never be jimmied apart. I want to be your vanity drawer, to hide my treasures in you. I […]

Because he had a sparse moustache growing across his upper lip, a thin precursor to manhood, an almost man— because he smelled like cigarettes, I loved Chris Muller that year. I loved Chris Muller the day he asked me into the locker room, beyond the urinals and benches, through the narrow hallway of sweat and […]

i am not what you supposed, but far different 1

But just possibly with you on a high hill, first watching lest any        person for miles around approach unawares, Or possibly with you sailing at sea, or on the beach of the sea or       some quiet island, Here to put your lips upon mine I permit you, With the comrade’s long-dwelling kiss or the […]
