John B.Shaposka

He wandered around aimlessly
 in the blank spaces
and empty rooms
 in my mind.

The Tormentor of my days
the Incubus of my nights.

 Until he finally walked into
a room he couldn't escape.

There he faded away to nothing...

Thanks my friend +Violetta Barth for directing me to this amazing picture. 

on the precipice of love.
My heart wants to soar
toward the whispers 
calling me to 
eternal bliss.

So I let go the fears
of lonely years
that hindered
my endless free flight.

In ecstasy, my
ecstatic wings
spread wide.
I grasp,
a hanging moment,
before soaring
into the utter joy
of endless lust
without a safety net.

light waits thunder's clap
staccato dancing on roof
heralded spring tempest
